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.

On Friday 16th February I came to The Winery for a meal with a few people and upon getting drinks from the bar, I was met by Jacob, who was quite arrogant, nor looking professional covered in bruises, not to mention the few times me...or my girlfriend walked past him we heard him boasting about his ‘fight’ which I believe to be very, very unprofessional, not a valued member of staff if you ask me, and the food, well to say the least, was ok I guessMore

Can’t fault it, friendly, efficient, we all said the food was delicious. Only pain is if you’re in a booth, the staff can’t see you. But hey! Pop your head up above the parapet & they come straight over. I’d love it if this place...was local to me.More

We were enquiring about halal dishes as we requested to swap the beef pie for the fish pie on the set menu. The waitress told us the chef said they were halal however when I asked about the certification there wasn’t one!!! I feel the...staff provided us with inaccurate information. We were also being rushed and had one abrupt lady who I’m thinking was the manager asking if we had ordered or not! The service was not great!More

From the outside it looks very impressive, as you walk in you see the bar area which also looks very inviting that's where the good first impressions end. The restaurant has an odd feel with a combination of booths and open tables. One of my...pet hates was no table cloth and paper napkins. The menu was quite varied with a specials page. However a number of things had "sold out", not great for 7pm on Saturday night. Service was attentive and food arrived quickly. Food was better than average but not outstanding. Overall my wife said it was posh restaurant combined with "hungry horse" . Ironically we may return just to check our confusion!More

The ambience was fantastic. A lovely clean, modern venue in a beautiful old building. Excellent quality of food and drinks. The duck salad was plentiful and not greasy and the chicken stack was of good quality and great variety of chicken cooked in different ways....The cocktails were lovely and again only quality ingredients used. The staff were attentive and happy to ask if they didn't know.More

Lovely location, visited as a group birthday celebration. Have been previously a few years ago and not had good experience. (I believe that this may have been under different ownership). Regrettably this was not dissimilar. I had three courses Pork Belly, Pan Fried Duck and...Sticky Toffee Pudding. They were ok in their own right, reasonably tasty. However, apart from the tepid pork belly, they were all cold. Had I not been in a group celebration, these would have been sent back, however I didn’t wish to raise this as I didn’t want to upset the organiser. Needless to say, I wouldn’t be rushing back as an individual. There were a few groups there that evening, I guess my experience could have been replicated. I know on my table, heat of the food was an issue with a few, the exception being those that ordered the fish pie, which was nuclear hot! I have rated as average, ambiance is ok, socially had a good time, food tasted ok but impacted by its temperature.More

We visited the Winery for Christmas lunch, after reading the recent reviews were a little unsure what to expect. We needn’t have worried as we couldn’t fault our experience. All of the staff were very friendly, polite and helpful couldn’t fault anyone. The food was...absolutely delicious, wonderful filet of beef cooked to perfection. In fact all courses were excellent. We had a wonderful relaxing Christmas lunch and can’t wait to return to sample the evening menu. So thanks so much to the Winery and all of your staff.More

Service the worst we have encountered. We ate lunch which was passable but not great. My friend and I were returning from the ladies when a waitress asked us if we had paid. When we replied yes we had , she said she would check....I went to the bar and reported the incident to the barman who replied that, it was normal practice. His attitude was rude and arrogant and he implied that it was the waitresses lack of propriety was her poor English. I have never encountered such rudeness and disrespect. I will never return to this restaurant, and have never before experienced such disrespect. Unless the management intervenes there will be no customers to insult.More

Went for a meal here with friends last night. When we arrived the person behind the bar told us she was busy making cocktails but would be over when she had finished. The food was excellent- tasty, hot and well presented however the service left...a lot to be desired. I didn’t see the staff smile once. They were not friendly at all and were clearly just ‘doing a job’, not something they enjoyed. The atmosphere was not brilliant as a consequence of their attitude. I will not be returning any time soon.More

Wow! From the minute we walked in, we knew we were in for a treat, from the warm welcome to the absolutely beautiful decorations. We opted for a cocktail (or two) in the bar before hand! Hands of my biscoff... DELISH! Once seated the friendly...waitress soon gave us menus and we opted for the christmas fayre. The pork bon bons and turkey... so MOIST, an that's so hard to do these days. The show stopped being the chocolate orange cheesecake, the only negative being it wasn't a big enough portion. Our whole visit was great and we have rebooked again for next week.More

Avoid like the plague. 2 years ago it was a pleasant dining experience not now. Prices high, service low, attitude even lower. If I was invited to dine here again I would politely decline as I've had better service at fast food restaurants. The attitude...displayed means they will not be getting money from my wallet.More

What a massive disappointment. We had a pre booked table for a family gathering of 15 people and from the moment we arrived the staff were rude. Our pre booked starters came to us before we had all sat down and one of the plates...was actually thrown across the table! Due to one of our party arriving late, who had travelled a distance, The mains came out when this individual hadn't finished the starter. We had already spoke with the 'manager' to say we all wanted to eat together. When we said to the server we weren't ready she shouted at us 'no you eat now'! We refused to take the meals until the starter had been eaten and then noticed all the mains were placed in the hallway. We were then told we either eat them cold or wait for a later sitting ( a 2 hour wait). Absolutely shocking and disgusting behaviour. We left and were threatened by the staff that theywould get the police. So we went around the corner to wing wah wherethe service was impeccable.More

The lunchtime special is amazing value - three courses for only 15.00. I'm on their mailing list otherwise it's not well advertised. Usually available throughout November up til 4pm. 15.00 is about the same price as a Big Mac Meal ! What's not to love?...I enjoyed breaded prawns to start, pork loin as main and lemon posset for dessert. Delicious. We were a party of four and all the dishes were excellent. Service was great; our waitress was attentive and very pleasant. We have booked again to return before the end of the month. Can't waitMore
