Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Fantastic evening at The Auction House last night. Live entertainment - a young singer belting out some tunes! What a voice! Created a great atmosphere. We were superbly looked after by two waitresses, very attentive, didn’t have to wait to be served. Tapas was delicious,...arrived very quickly. Everything cooked to perfection. Couldn’t fault a thing, would definitely recommend.More

We attend a friend's birthday function upstairs in the auction house . We ordered food which we understand is tapas style so we expected a slight delay with food coming out . However... we didn't expect for steak to come out and nothing else. We...had ordered a mezze platter, sweet potato wedges and fries also but these items didn't get served. We were sat by the stairs and could see every dish that came up and these items didn't. We waited for 45mins after the steak came out as thought this was more than long enough for all food to of arrived at the table. The waitress insisted that the food had come up and been refused, in which it had not . We were told the only thing they could do at this point was refund for the items that we hadn't eaten. So at this point we asked to speak to the manager, we waited 20mins before we asked the waitress again to speak to the manager when we were told he would be a further 10mins . By which point we went down stairs to locate the manager who was avaliable! The manager proceeded to tell us that he had been on the pass and the food had been up three times , in which it had not . And that the food had been refused as every person in the upstairs had been asked which we had not ! He then proceeded to say we'll its your word against ours ! Kitchen's closed ! So you can only have a refund ! Hastened to add we were hungry and this is not the service you expect to receive from a restaurant manager . We proceeded with a refund at this point . Better yet the refund wasn't a refund at all and we were charged again for the items we didn't receive, which we didn't notice until checking our banking two days later. We called the restaurant as we are not local , to speak to the manager and a waitress dealt with us as the manager was engaged. She said she needed to speak to him and would call us back, funny thing was that the call back was within seconds of hanging up. The manager must of known of his error and was expecting our call , but he didn't deal with us his waiting staff did . I am just so glad we were at a birthday event and we could have a slice of cake for our dinner ! Never ever have we had such poor service.More

Great location and nice drinks, food was nice but service was terrible, in the main the staff were great but missed some dishes… when they complained about the missing items the manger could not care less, very disappointing to see such poor customer service in...otherwise a nice venue.More

We had dinner and drinks on Thursday. Two staff on duty tried to cope with a fairly large number of guests. They were really helpful but 3 would have made it much easier. This seems to be the story everywhere post pandemic and Brexit. Lack...of staff spoiling an otherwise great experience. The portions seem quite large for tapas and one of our party ordered coconut prawns which didn’t arrive for ages. When it did it was watery and the next day they had an upset stomach. I’d had that dish before and it was great so again a sign that maybe kitchen staff were overstretched. Decor and ambience is nice and makes a change from ‘just a pub’. Hope they get this working well soon . It’s a good location v near the station if you are meeting people off the train .More

I’m not sure if they understand what “tapas” is. All our selection came at once so whilst eating one selection the other went cold. we did explain to the waitress but she had no clue what we were talking about. In her own words “chef...said to take it all together & if it’s a problem the customer doesn’t understand”. Well we won’t be returning anytime soon.More

Great atmosphere and and pretty busy for a Wednesday evening. Food was nice enough but as others have mentioned, quite expensive for what you get. The main issue however was the fact that what arrived at the table was not what was expected per the...description… eg ‘king prawns’ on the menu was described as roasted butternut curry, but was in actual fact a huge bowl of chickpea curry with a few prawns on top. No mention of a chickpea in the description at all, and no butternut? It was nice, but didn’t go with our selection at all so made our choice a bit weird.More

Five of us visited last night and to be honest I was unsure of the Restaurant as I have received mixed reviews from friends although visited with a completely open mind. To be fair, the decor and service were great, the food and drinks were...all delicious if not a little on the pricey side when you order a selection of Tapas. It was not overly busy but this was a Monday night which are usually quiet in restaurants although there was still a good atmosphere. However, there was a stand out positive to our visit and that was Spencer, the duty manager. He was so professional, polite, engaging and passionate about the business that we were all suitably impressed. He is an asset and a wonderful ambassador to your business and I believe every restaurant needs a Spencer ! We would return which is a good recommendation as to be fair we are a fussy crowd ! Well Done to The Auction House !More
