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.

For the second year running our book club chose to organise our Christmas meal here, because last year's one was so lovely. Again, it didn't disappoint. The manager actually remembered my dietary requirements from previous visits, and food was cooked specially for me. I cannot...fault either the food or the service here, and will be back again soon. Thank you.More

The food here is amazing, absolutely first class. My steak was cooked to perfection and the pasta dishes looked amazing too Despite asking for our order to be taken from three of the staff, we had to wait for over 40 minutes before someone did....I accept this when restaurants are busy, but seeing the staff congregating for chats when we were waiting for someone to take our order was frustrating to say the least All of this said, if you want amazing Italian food, then highly recommend a visit here….might just want to bring snacks to allow for the wait!More

Great lunch menu. Friendly welcoming, attentive staff. The lasagne is very much a cut above the rest. Good value for money. Highly recommend.

Sunday dinner treat for the family. Service was excellent BUT sadly the roast dinners were swamped in a rich gravy. I think you should give the customers a choice and provide the gravy in a gravy boat. All you could taste was the gravy throughout...the dinner. The roast potatoes were over cooked and were hard the cut up. Very nice restaurant, comfy chairs.More

Had a lovely meal here last night for my 60th birthday, they even sang for me when they brought out my dessert. Staff were very friendly and attentive and nothing too much trouble. Will definitely visit again. The chicken pasta was excellent.

We've often eaten here and had excellent food and service. Until this week. We booked for lunch and our waitress organised drinks very promptly before taking our order. I asked for scampi with a salad, avoiding chips and we also asked for garlic bread to...share. When our food arrived, I had scampi and chips with a bowl of salad and no sign of the garlic bread. The waitress suddenly realised I hadn't ordered chips but I said that was OK as my husband would eat them. Despite reminding her about the garlic bread, it never arrived. Our waitress was quiet and efficient, and busy with new arrivals as the restaurant began to fill. We eventually decided it was pointless asking about the garlic bread and finished the meal with tiramisu. The bill duly arrived and in the absence of garlic bread, she offered to take off the service charge. We decided, as the majority of the meal had been fine, to ask for only half of it to be deducted. I think my main problem was with the manager. Although he was there, he didn't deal with any of this problem. He seemed to be fine with going around the tables and chatting to regular customers, but in the matter of the missing garlic bread and the chips I had not ordered, he left the waitress to deal with the problem and didn't even look at us when we left. In many places we have eaten, the manager will normally speak to customers and not leave his staff to face an unhappy diner. Popular eateries don't only rely on their food, their service is just as important, and unfortunately it felt as if no one really cared. Sadly we've eaten our last meal there and won't be coming back.More

Been a few times and thoroughly enjoyed in the past. Came with a friend for her birthday one evening when it was steak night. For starters I had mussels which were lovely. My friend had the king prawns which were not great. More or a...soup with only a few prawns. We had medium rare steak which was lovely although a bit fatty. Blue cheese sauce was nice but not overly strong. The atmosphere was great. It came to £100 which I thought was very steep for the steak night deal with only two starters and two mains. We did get a bottle of wine as well but I’m not sure how it came to that muchMore

We haven’t visited this lovely Pub since pre Covid. The standard is still as good as past times. My hubbie had the Pork and I had the Beef. Both meals were very satisfying. The desserts were good too. We were made to feel very welcome...and the staff looked after us well. The Restaurant was very busy and as folks left tables were quickly cleared and reset for the next customers. Will definitely return.More
