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.

We found this absolute gem when on holiday in 2022. The food was great and staff friendly. But could it be as good a year later? Oh yes! The food is really good quality and cooked spot on. Particular mention for the horseshoe gammon, top...quality meat with very little rind, served with a great chunk of pineapple and runny fried egg. Pizzas were enjoyed and extra homemade chips. As for the garlic bread with cheese WOW honestly think it's the best garlic bread I've had bar none! This was out first time taking our new puppy out, and what a great time he had! Genuine love of dogs from the staff, great atmosphere so doesn't over excite them, and his first ever doggy ice cream went down as well as my Inchs Cider! With friendly and attentive staff, what else could you ask for! We will 100% be back. We've found our happy place to holiday and the best place to eat!More

The salad that came with the arancini starter needed help, so did the chips with the scampi. There was no defribulator to hand and probably wouldn’t have helped revive such a dead limp offering. Frankly the food served looked nothing like the photos on Tripadvisor...and bordering on trading standards miss representation, the chips were soggy refried roast potatoes from Sunday lunch. I cannot think of one positive thing to say about the food. The landlady had no interest in making sure we paid our bill, more worried about who had not put a slip in the till for wages. The beer was fresh and good. We left smelling like an old chip fat fryer. I just cannot justify the 4plus star rating on TripadvisorMore

Booked for 7.30pm, ordered at 7.45pm waited until 9.30pm for our food, we could see that the pub was busy so didn’t complain for the first hour but then the pub and restaurant area emptied out and still no food. We had 2 young children...with us that were getting very tired. We asked how long the food would be after 1 hour wait and we’re told that they were unsure as they had been busy no, real apology and no staff member through out the long wait came over and apologised. The table next to us were told there would be a wait for food and offered a free drink for the wait. I had to ask for money to be taken off the bill! This is not customer service! When the food eventually arrived it was average, some dishes no flavour and bland. Sad as reading the menu and reviews online we were all very excited to visit. Overall a huge disappointment.More

Despite a mix up with our booking we were seated quickly & issued with menus. Between us we had chicken Kiev, pizza, scampi, & bunch burgers. The food was fantastic; all home-cooked & fresh. Nothing appeared to have been frozen, for eg the scampi was...breaded in panko breadcrumbs. The staff were really friendly, & the resident cat, Pickle, very happy to be made a fuss of. We’ll definitely return if we find ourselves in the vicinity again.More
