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.

Tried this local Youngs pub after many years, Spacious and nicely designed interior and beautiful outdoor seating area., where we had a drink before our meal. Good menu with competitive prices. We both had the Cyder battered Haddock and chips which was excellent. The added...attention to detail was the curry sauce, mushy peas and tartare sauce served in little pots to go with it. Very nice girl waitresses. Would definitely recommend and return to explore more of the menu.More

Disappointing visit I’m afraid . We met for lunch yesterday , lovely greeting and the pub looks great . Beautiful decor . Our server brought our drinks over and asked if we’d like a bit longer before ordering lunch . We said yes , but...unfortunately that’s where the service ended . We didn’t see her again and in the end we had to find someone to take our order . I ordered a steak sandwich but no Dijon mustard , just mayo instead . My friends ordered a Nantwich cheese sandwich and a mixed salad . We were told that they would be able to make up a salad as this wasn’t on the menu . Firstly , my sandwich came with mustard . When I queried it , I was told it was ok because it wasn’t Dijon ! My friend’s cheese sandwich was not the one she ordered ( there were 2 on the menu and she specifically didn’t want the one with Stilton ) . And thirdly , my other friend’s salad came as just a few leaves and a tomato !!! We could have sent it all back , but we were running out of time at this stage . The food had taken 30 mins to arrive . I ate the steak ( underdone , but I wasn’t asked how I’d like it cooked ) but left the bread as it was smothered in mustard . It would have and should have been a lovely lunch in a nice setting , but unfortunately so much was wrong , it was disappointing.More

The Canbury Arms under Bruce's management has improved enormously since its low spot at the end of 2023. The menu was so much improved, we had the lamb pie & the halibut. Service was very good & importantly the restaurant was busy unlike previous visits....Keep up the standards Young's, we will recommend the Canbury to our friends. One small point, Young's the photograph on the header of your e-mail, is not the Canbury Arms, I think I've been in this Youngs pub in West London!More
