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.

So glad we chose to eat here on our stay nearby. Everything we had was so fresh and tasty. We got an amuse bouche (on the house) of tomato veloute, bread roll and whipped yeast butter.. this was all delicious! Starter of squid with chorizo...and manchego was so fresh, with a nice light batter on the squid. Always a treat to go somewhere and have squid made fresh rather than the awful frozen rings you get everywhere. The steak main was also very nice but the star of this dish was the wild mushroom sauce and the chunky chips! For desert I had apple and berry crumble which was a perfect end to a delicious meal. This was one of the best crumbles I’ve ever had. Outstanding from start to finish!More

Well, I don’t normally wrote reviews as, well to be honest I can’t normally be bothered, but when the food was this good I couldn’t not write one! I had ham egg and chunky chips, Chucky is an understatement, I hate thick cut chips, I...always opt for fries where possible, but I went for it and wow I was glade I did, they were like wedges crispy yet fluffy, ham was beautiful, egg was perfectly runny, I ordered a side of veg to accompany it and again another brilliant choice, my husband ordered the burger, I hate eating out with my husband as he is the fussiest person going, but he said it was easily one of the best burgers he’s ever had, juicy, homemade accompanied beautifully with salad, burger sauce and his favourite gherkins, which is struggles to find other than McDonald’s, girls serving the food and taking orders all incredibly polite and friendly, wonderful outside fire which was a lovely touch next to the trout stream, if we didn’t live so far away and we’re just on a day trip we would be in here all the time, but it’s really made our day, thank you, definitely worth a trip!More

We were here for boxing day lunch. Two of our four couldn't make it so we brought two others and the Duke, and Catherine in particular, went out of their way to handle the new people even tho it was a pre booked menu. I...could tell they had a lot going on tho all the staff made sure we got exactly what we wanted, and this includes some veg and gluten free. It's one, if not our top favourite around. See u again soon Duke and CatherineMore

We have been here several times, and generally very good, and every place has its foibles. However, our last visit was, for the prices we are paying to dine there, slightly underwhelming. All seemed to be going ok until the mains arrived. My partner ordered...mussels with a toasted ciabatta. The mussels arrived, no bread, no bowl for the shells or spoon for the soup. So we called the young lass over and she told us she would bring it straight away. That didn't happened whilst the mussels quickly got cold. She was at the adjacent table setting up for the next day, oblivious to us waiting so we asked again, she then brought an ice cold piece of bread and still no bowl and spoon, and didn't seem very pleased that we asked again?! Finally went to manager and asked to correct this, which she did, but unfortunately the food was cold by this time, as was mine waiting for my partner to get her full meal right. To top it off, I asked for a small candle on the pudding which I rang a couple of days before to confirm, which they did. Frustratingly, no candle either nor any suggestion to take any £££ off the bill for a cold main. Like I said, a good place, but for the prices, the young staff serving should worry less about their phones and more about the paying customers having everything they are paying for. Disappointing!More

Underwhelmed. Amuse Bouche was good but the crab fettuccine was mostly pasta and cream could taste crab but couldn’t find it! Altogether the meal did not represent good value

We generally love this pub, but just lately it's seems to have gone down hill in a big way. We had a large group for roast Sunday lunch, one of the main issues was that the staff could not even provide a decent enough carving...knife to actually cut the beef nor indeed the chicken. After 5 attempts, we found a poor knife but all the other food had gone cold, also the vegetable s over salted. We had a nice day and the manager apologised and gave us a nice bottle of sparkling. We won't be rushing back! £600 spent.More

I was delighted when friends suggested we went to the Duke of Cumberland for an early lunch on the way somewhere. We were first through the doors and so there was no excuse for the poor service we received. No menus were available and we...had to wait 20 minutes for them to be printed. We were told they would be brought out but ended up having to go in again to prompt them. The staff had forgotten as they were too busy discussing their social lives. The food did arrive promptly and was average. The condiments we asked for never arrived because again the staff seemed more interested in their social lives. We left feeling "incidental".More

No, but there is at another local pub called The Kings Arms. Also does good food (but not on a level with The Duke of Cumberland).
