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.

Top end pricing. £23.95 for some main courses. They are lovely, but its a pub with all the noise and all the people ! Sit towards the back of premises. Drinks also very expensive- £7 a pint in Cleethorpes! Alot of noise. Service is polite...but it's pub service, not restaurant! Not worth the money.More

Amazing pub! Visited on a busy Easter Sunday, group of 8 with a dog, and could not fault the service, quality of the food and drink or the value. Real nice place with a great atmosphere, friendly staff and a just generally gave off a...good vibe! Highly recommend visit if you’re in the area.More

Nice food and drink but the service was quite poor, staff were incredibly rude on both occasions and stood behind the bar slating us and glaring at us… didn’t feel comfortable staying in there for more than one drink, seemed to be snapping at and...speaking rudely to several other customers attending at the time.More

It was a busy lunch time, I sat at a table that needed cleaning as the previous customers had just left. The cleaning didn’t happen. The previous plates and drinks were removed. I Ordered a North Atlantic Prawn baguette at the bar as waiter service...is not applicable to the high tables. The baguette arrived warm with stone cold prawns in a very watery sauce, probable defrosted under a cold tap. The skinny fries were cold and soggy baguette was not enjoyable.More

Visited today and had two of their £8.95 Friday special haddock, chips and mushy peas. Haddock was advertised as 10oz but looked bigger than that. Really good portion size. Fish was fresh. Homemade chips and plenty of mushy peas as well. Ordered a side of...bread and butter and a curry sauce and it was still under £20. Great value. Would definitely go again.More

We hadn't been here for a while and decided to try it out again. Opted for a Venison Burger with cranberry mayo and a salad. The mayo and salad never came and we had to ask for them to be brought to the table. It...was very difficult to catch the eye of a server as they were busy so took some time to raise this and for it to arrive. I opted for a Xmas stir fried rice dish (rice, bacon, turkey, stuffing, cranberries etc) including Soy coated sprouts. The meal arrived and it was ALL covered in soy sauce and had quite a lot of chilli included which was not mentioned on the menu board. The overall flavour of the dish was burning soy sauce, no flavour of Xmas at all. The server seemed non plus when I discussed this with her and had to check the menu to see if I was correct. It seemed the chef was making it up as he went along that night. It will be some time before we revisit as these meals were quite expensive. Not an enjoyable evening.More

Went for lunch and had the x-mas dinner. It was excellent. Not too much on the plate but enough for a big appetite. The food was cooked to perfection. We normally have the fish again it is cooked to perfection. The batter is crisp and...the fish is juicy. Both meals are scrumptious. Highly recommend this place but please book in advance as it is not big. We are ready to go again and again.More

Went there on a Sunday evening was served with drinks a couple came to the bar and a server asked if they wanted food took them to the only vacant table, I wasn't acknowledged any of the time I was there and all tables were...occupied. I won't ever go there again, oh and the Sunday roast dinner a couple had didn't look very appetising.More
