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.

We had a wonderful meal to celebrate a friend’s upcoming wedding. The staff were great, decorating the table with the balloons and confetti I’d provided, welcoming us with a glass of Prosecco and even giving the bride to be a card and very kind gift...voucher. Delicious food, great surroundings and very helpful staff. Thank you so much 😊More

This place used to be absolutely amazing when Sally owned it. As I’ve recently moved to the area I took the family for a nice Sunday lunch well it was far from it. Better off going to a dive like toby carvery to be honest....Veg all hard, frozen roast potatoes, chicken dryer than anything experienced before. Eventually when asked if the table could be cleared the dinner plates were still full and stated what was wrong and the guy just took the plates away and eventually bought the bill to the table. The bill was the full amount when I was surprised with. So we went to the bar to pay and I told him you have a choice of taking a dinner off or I’m walking out without paying you a penny. So the bill was altered and I was asked what was wrong - even though this had been already discussed. He was apologetic but the original guy didn’t say a thing. So the service isn’t exactly there eitherMore

Great family meal at the Jinnie - lots of options on the menu and all good value for money. I had the halloumi kebab - only thing I would say was the veg was slightly greasy.

Very disappointed with the Sharing platter we had today. We have had this before and although not great value for money and barely enough for 2 to share, it wasn't bad when accompanied by a side of fries. This time there were no crackers, only...2 small baguettes, no olives (both of these are listed on the menu) and the cheese selection consisted of one slice of cheddar, one slice of stilton and the tiniest piece of brie you could imagine. I've heard that portion sizes are being reduced to save money and this is a prime example. There was hardly anybody in there and I'm not surprised. Won't be going there again!More
