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.

We have eaten here on several occasions but unfortunately this time it didn't meet previous expectations. There was several things we ordered off the menu that wasn't available. The chips were really tasty but they were soggy. I think they were cooked before everything else...was ready and kept warm which resulted in them becoming soggy. The fish batter was also soggy.The steaks were cooked to perfection. The bill at the end did have a discount for the missing items which was a kind gesture. The staff were all very friendly and I would eat here again but next time I would go else where to celebrate a special birthday as we were doing.More

This is our third visit to this lovely pub. What stands out for is how friendly the staff and regulars are. We were made to feel part of the community. The food is excellent and great value for money. On our previous visit we stayed...in one of the rooms - unfortunately they were all booked this time. Thank you for great hospitality - and Gareth for your entertainment tonight! Thoroughly enjoyed seeing the New Year in with you all. We will be back - currently in the process of buying a place in Sandwich.More

Always a great pub eatery, the staff are great, always with a smile and an asset to the pub. The food menu caters for everyone and every time we have eaten there its delicious and filling. Music on a Saturday between 5 and 8, nice...in the background. Some great characters come to the pub and always a friendly place. Well wort a try, thank you again.More

Really friendly locals pub, that has a decent pub grub menu, and good selection of beers. We had the ham egg and chips followed by sticky toffee pudding. Both were really tasty and reasonably priced. Service was spot on as well.

Stopped off in sandwich on our tour of the south east, rang before we arrived to check on availability for Sunday lunch. Luckily for us they reserved us a table. Thoroughly enjoy our meal, plenty to eat , did me a double on meat because...I couldn’t decide between pork or beef. Which I thought was very nice by katie, All the staff very friendly, the pub itself was super clean , very comfortable. Would highly recommend !!More

From the moment we walked through the door to the moment we left, this was the perfect experience. Food and drinks were excellent, and the staff could not have been more welcoming. Unbeknown to them, it was my birthday. When, through banter, they became aware...of this, they gave me a complimentary drink! A true family pub, serving a wide variety of great quality 'pub grub', we will definitely be returning soon.More

We have a back entrance to the bar but its quite narrow and tight to get an electric wheelchair in. If you are in the area pop in and I will show you the entrance to see if we could manage it.
