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.

This was hands down, the best Sunday roast I have ever had with an amazing atmosphere in the pub. Highly recommend the food, and the staff are equally as impressive.

The food here is absolutely stunning. Been here a few times now. The Sunday lunch was to die for, so much choice and service was second to none. Nothing is too much trouble. Max the owner is always checking you are ok. Jo is friendly...and professional. Stelios the new barman brings a little bit of Greek charm to the place. Will 100% recommend the atmosphere food and staff. Thank you.More

We are local to this pub and heard good things about it recently so decided to pay a visit. It did not disappoint. We went for dinner as a family of 4 and was made to feel very welcome. We were shown to the table...by Jo and she was really friendly, the manager introduced himself and checked that it wasn't too dark in the restaurant for us. Nothing was too much trouble and to top it all the food was both prompt and delicious. The atmosphere was good and we all agreed that we would definitely go back. Well done to the Orange Tree, the new owners really have made this into a great local pub.More

Having been here in a couple of Fridays leading up to Christmas we decided to spend our New Years Eve here. The £5 entry provides a buffet and a DJ and a great night.

Although this pub has had a refurb it hasn't taken long for it to deteriorate. It's appearance was shabby and uncared for, which is a shame as this has the potential to be much better. Not the most friendly pub I've been in. Wont be...going back there any time soon.More

Yes it is a pub with good people good beer and good fun. Shows Sky and BT sport has a great garden. Best thing about it is it is a real pub and not a chain.

This place is a hole. Staff are very rude and unpleasant. The landlords are clearly drinking away their profits, as they were drunk and having a very public row. The place is filthy dirty, damp and has no atmosphere. You are made to feel uncomfortable...unless you are a regular. How this dive isn't boarded up is beyond meMore

Rude brassy barmaids only interested in serving men. Iggnorant staff. Dodgy characters everywhere dealing drugs. Supposed to be a family pub. Yeah right. Total joke of a place. Seems like a place where all the down and outs hang about and rent a room.

We went for Sunday lunch. Thought it would be a smart pub from the photo but the front needs painting & there were banners advertising live TV sports. The roast was mediocre, not very hot & for £9.99 on the expensive side. We have had...better carvery meals for less.More
