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.

Took our friends from Banbury for there Fish and chip offer which was very reasonable. Having run our own fish and chip shop for 20 years I must say it was probably one of the best portion of fish and chips we’d had since I...sold my shop in 2008 , the fish (haddock of course ) was our white very chunky and like the batter was cooked to perfection , as was the chips , mushy peas and curry sauce. We would highly recommend a visit to the Notts restaurant where the staff are also very friendly. Ten out of ten for everything we definitely will be back.More

We booked a table tonight for our annual family Christmas meal for 6 people. We had booked several weeks ago and the table was set for 8 even though we booked for 6. There were plastic table cloths and cheap thin cutlery which really surprised...me. We were so very disappointed. Our table was booked for 7.30pm. My sister and husband were slightly late arriving so we ordered drinks and then ordered our food once they arrived at around 7.50pm. We chose prawn cocktail starters from the menu but were told it was main course only not starters. The main course was really very average. I had a luke warm tasteless lasagne and chips. We has 2 choices of desert, I had a deforsted lemon meringue. Shortly afterwards we were asked to settle our bill at 8.45pm, no chance to have coffee. We were then asked to leave at 9pm by a waiter who turned all the music off even though we still had our drinks. We asked can we just finish our drinks and were told only if you take them downstairs to the bar Never have I experienced this type of customer service. Why open up as a restaurant if you are not equiped to do so. Definitely more a cafe than a'restaurant' and a very poor one at that. We will never return, it was such a bad experience.More

Went for an evening meal with a group of friends.. pre warned the chef that I was Vegan as nothing Vegan on the menu. I was offered 4 different vegan options when I arrived, but disappointed that it seemed to be all bought in processed...vegan food, burgers, sausages, chicken. Home made Vegan meals are easy to prepare and cook, particularly this time of year when seasonal vegetables are cheap and in abundance. I’ve visited this restaurant many time over the years and always enjoyed the home cooked food and cosy atmosphere. Sadly I didn’t have the same experience this time. We all commented that the restaurant was cold, we weren’t offered desserts and was informed they wanted to close at 9.15pm. The rest of my party said their meals were “ok, nothing special, felt like cafe food”. So sadly we won’t be returning.More

Popped in here for a couple of pints, starting with the Wainright which was excellent. It's a nice old traditional style pub with a nice atmosphere and good service.

Booked a table for 20 of us weeks ago for a hen party, once seated waitress told us all that was left on the menu was beef burger lasagne and meat pie! Absolutely ruined our night so the vegetarians and coeliac amongst us had nothing...or a baked potato with a pathetic salad! I will never go there again!More

I have been going to the Notts for years and years, but moved away on 1978 and only returned to the Cleethorpes area in December 2020. In the old days it was purely a pub, but when I moved back it was fantastic to discover...that it has a great restaurant run by Kim who is also the chef. There is a very wide range of food that can be served in the lounge and the bar, and I have sampled many of the items - for a late lunch today I had a beautifully cooked jacket potato with garlic mushrooms as the topping - delicious. But last Sunday I booked a table in the upstairs restaurant and I had a wonderful roast pork Sunday lunch. The pork was beautifully cooked and melted in the mouth, the roast potatoes were crisp but soft inside, the veggies were al dente as I like them and the gravy was flavoursome. I didn’t have any room left for dessert or cheese, but managed a nice glass of port to finish off. Certainly one of the best roast lunches I have ever eaten. Many thanks Kim and team 👏👍.

Went Sunday for a roast. Was sat 30 minutes waiting for a waitress. Not even a drink offered. When she did finally turn up. She said we don’t have any food left hardly WOW so we had been seated 30 minutes to be told they...have no food she then went away and came back and said it should be ok. The food was terrible heron Yorkshire puddings and food was not up to scratch. Restaurant has pipes and electric cables pinned to the skirtings was not pleasant. We have ate many times here in the past. What has happened I do not know. But it was absolutely terrible service and food. After this spoke to a number of people in the area and have all said it has gone down hill. You have been WARNEDMore

I used to live in Cleethorpes until I moved to London for work in 1978, and I worked in London and then moved abroad in 1990 and lived and worked in 14 different countries before moving back to Lincolnshire in December 2019 when I retired....The Notts as it is known is everything you want in a pub - great, friendly staff, the beer is excellent - Timmy Taylor’s Landlord is my particular favourite, but the Tetley’s, Thwaites Wainwright, and Oakham Citra are also excellent bitters - all beautifully kept and thoroughly enjoyable. There are a couple of lagers, draft Guinness and a really interesting Porter (Titanic Plum Porter). The food is really good - 5 starters, 6 main courses, various sandwiches & jacket potatoes, 5 desserts and a specials board. As far as I’m concerned it is the perfect pub and I go virtually every day 😊👍More
