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.

Enjoyable meal as part of Murder Mystery event. Not the best meal I've ever had but great value. Breakfast was substantial and excellent

Slightly strange place. Restaurant still making chilli con carne, and will take an hour, so we had vegetarian lasagna, which was ok. Service basic. Toilets down a long corridor but clean

Incorrect allergen listing on menu (no dairy in cheese salad, hhmmm?!) and staff not very helpful when you try and discuss specific ingredients. Head waitress / manageress was simply the rudest person I have ever witnessed in hospitality - she shouted across the table when...we didn't give our order quickly enough and sighed LOUDLY several times. Of the 3 courses, starter was godawful, main was average, dessert was godawful - oh and the glasses and table itself were filthy. McD's would have been better value for money.More

I have seen better service in residential homes, bread is served in an ice bucket, drinks are given unopen, and left you to serve yourself, food looks stail.

The staff are friendly and the rooms are clean but tired. Breakfast is just about passable but don’t bother eating in the restaurant for dinner. The menu is something out of the seventies and the food is bland. We had dinner / Lunch included but...only used the restaurant once. We ate elsewhere after the first night. If you can get a deal then bed a breakfast would be ok if you want to visit this area. But don’t eat in the restaurant or bar it’s mass catering and you have to pre order your food earlier in the day nothing is freshly cooked to order. You would be better off walk-in app the road to the Thorpe’s pub - good freshly cooked food - but book in advance as it get very busy.More

The room needs an update, service was hidden but the worst factor was that the food had been cooked earlier & placed under lamps to try to keep it warm.

We had booked for a festive lunch for the family who all live miles apart so this was central for us. Although the restaurant was quiet, the staff worked hard to make sure it was a nice atmosphere for us and found the right balance...between giving us space and making sure we had everything we needed. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff who genuinely seemed to want to ensure we had a good time. In particular, one of our group is disabled and staff went out of their way to make sure they were comfortable even changing the furniture around to help. Really appreciated this as not all places are so willing to be adaptable. The food itself was chosen in advance from the festive menu and was excellent. It was served piping hot which is always a bonus and all of it was high quality. Even the coffee and chocolates were special. Genuinely felt like everyone went out of their way to make our day special and at just £14.95 each the value was ridiculously good. Thank you and have a fabulous Christmas.More

We thought the food was great. Good choice of 3 courses and a pretty standard wine list. We had the dining room to ourselves as there was a Murder mystery thing going on so we enjoyed the very personal service. A bonus as it was...my husband's birthday. The breakfast was very nice. Good choice of cooked, Cereals, pastries, toast and fruits and yogurts.More
