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.

Sadly leaving a bad review, food was substandard- food appeared re heated, very poor presentation, vegetables looked like they had been scraped off someone else’s plate. Definitely not return , a real shame as reviews read before visiting

Lovely secluded pub for a great meal. Staff were very accommodating and the food was amazing. Will go again next time we are in the area.

I enjoyed an excellent meal here on a Tuesday early evening recently. Best pub food I’ve had in a long time. Cosy fire and nice atmosphere. This pub never disappoints, I come once a year to visit where my mum grew up.

I was excited about our Sunday lunch here today having eaten here last Easter when in Cornwall. We booked and arrived on time and were seated straight away and our drinks came quickly as did our food once ordered. The starters were pleasant and so...was my roast gammon dinner in the main apart from a very burnt Yorkshire pudding that should not have been on the plate at all. My companions had - roast lamb which was hard to cut let alone chew (dogs liked it though) the roast pork was very fatty and the portion sizes varied and were not presented so well. We did not complain onsite as the staff were pleasant and provided a good service but the food quality/presentation does need some improvement as this pub is a quaint place to visit and at the moment I would not rush back.More

On entering this pub feels very much like a 'locals pub' , however, the staff were very welcoming and friendly and the food was delicious! Would definitely recommend

Whilst on holiday in the area I had pre-booked a table for Sunday lunch. We arrived 15 mins early but were shown to our table nonetheless. First the positive, the roast dinner we had was beautiful, however the overall experience was spoilt by the following....Once seated the waitress said she’d send someone over to take our drink order - 20 mins later we were still waiting. Just before we were about to go up to the bar she realised we’d been forgotten and sent the waiter to our table. Once our food was brought to us we were asked if we wanted any sauces and I requested some horseradish - 10 mins later I was still waiting, watching the waitress attend to other diners, obviously having forgotten about it. We approached the bar and the waiter brought some over. Finally, and this really was the biggest insult, when we’d finished our main course the waitress came to collect the plates and instead of the expected “would you like to see the dessert menu”, she said “ we have some people at the bar and we need your table”. We had been sat down at our table for a grand total of 55 mins and that included the first 20 mins we were forgotten! All in all a real shame and all down in my opinion to the one waitress and her lack of customer service.More

This is a lovely cosy looking pub, but unfortunately we didn't get to eat in there as we were taken to a little room outside the main building - known as the stable bar - for our meal. It was pouring with rain and really...cold and that really didn't help. The people at the other table in there had their meals brought in under a single sheet of silver foil which was almost blowing away in the wind as it came across the yard exposing their lunches to the elements! Also the staff kept leaving the door open and my husband had to keep getting up to shut it! Luckily it stopped raining before our meals came but they still had to come across the yard which is far from ideal on a cold wet March day! The meal itself was acceptable and I did actually it except perhaps for the limp soft roast potatoes and cauliflower cheese with hardly any cheese. If you book to come here just make sure to ask not to be given the stable bar. It'll be fine on a warm summers day, but totally unsuitable for winter!!More

We were booked here for a Christmas Party menu with friends last Wednesday, and had pre-booked our lovely sounding menu choices of the following: Starters - "Saffron Crab Bon Bons on a bed of leaves, pickled vegetables, herby dip", and for Mains - "Duo of...Turkey Crown and Leg, sage and onion stuffing, pigs in blankets, bread sauce, roast potatoes, sprouts in bacon lardons, honey glazed parsnips, seasonal vegetables, in a red wine jus" We were really looking forward to the evening, until the starters turned up, and the three bon bons each turned out to be one nearly hot, one sort of warm and the other virtually cold, with a pickled piece of carrot, and no herby dip. We were still enjoying ourselves, and didn't really notice the dip was missing until afterwards - when we were presented with the Main course... For a meal, and I mean a run of the mill ordinary meal, it was kind of OK. We ate it mumbling, but still enjoying the company and wine, but enthusing less and less about what we had been presented with. There was no "duo of turkey", just a slab of turkey breast, with no turkey leg whatsoever. My stuffing was a miserable little piece of what was once, I presume, a stuffing ball. NO pigs in blankets, NO bread sauce, yes there were three roast potatoes (though admittedly not exactly the best we've ever had), NO sprouts in bacon lardons, one honey glazed parsnip, a miserable piece of cabbage for the seasonal vegetables (though two of our party reported a pea and a piece of carrot somewhere), and NO red wine jus. Just a bit of ordinary gravy. Awful. We did finally complain when the plates were taken away, and the very helpful barman Callum took note and took the comments back. He returned and said that £5 would be taken off each of our meals, which we accepted. Then came the desserts. Well actually they didn't. After about half an hour, two "Christmas Puddings served with Brandy Sauce" finally turned up. We waited for the other two desserts (another Christmas Pudding, and a Lemon and Fig Ricotta Tartlet), which took a while to come, and we asked Callum politely if there was a problem. He told us that the chef had walked out, and that he had been left on his own to run both the bar and kitchen with no help at all, and had had to figure out how to produce the desserts himself. When we found out this, he had our sympathy. The desserts that Callum produced were excellent, with brandy sauce, a sprinkle and a cape gooseberry on top for presentation. Thank you to Callum for taking on the roles of Barman, Chef, Waiter and Pub Manager all rolled into one to complete the evening. We had pulled the crackers on the table earlier just for the hell of it (with the jokes sadly matching the quality of the starters and main meals we'd had), said our 'thank you's to Callum for his efforts, and left him returning to the kitchen to do all the washing up. Merry Christmas Crow's Nest! It'll be a while.More
