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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

I had the special New Orleans chicken loaded fries with slaw tonight. It was phenomenal! It's a shame it's not on your normal menu. New Orleans flavours were lush 😍 🙌🏻

Absolutely incredible food. Incredible service. Burger fries were absolutely insane. Hays Beef burger was juicy, succulent and the coleslaw was out of this world. Ben, the manager is fabulous! Food was hot, tasty and the shack had a truly wonderful atmosphere and environment. Will be...returning here again and again! Thanks Hays!More

Our second night staying in Sandwich we chose hays shack. We got a takeaway to eat by the river. We ordered the weekly special a sharing box filled with a selection of things garlic prawns, southern fried chicken, steak & chips etc. it was so...nice perfectly cooked. You can eat in but it was such a nice early evening and the river is such a beautiful setting. Wanted to enjoy the late summer weather. Hays food was delicious. Great choice of food very well cooked with quality ingredients. Definitely recommendMore

I visited Hay’s Shack for lunch today. I went up to the counter to order and witnessed really poor hygiene standards. The ‘chef’ was busy scraping the food preparation work top with a knife. He then scraped the knife in the bin and then put...the knife straight back on the work surface. Yuck! My wife and I have eaten here a few times, the food has been fairly good. We left without ordering this time and won’t be back. Sorry.More

Great burger with raclette and bacon, I recommend the skin on fries with chorizo and more raclette. We didn't try them but the milkshakes looked fab.
