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.

Oh dear. Roast beef Sunday lunch - disappointing. Beef inedible. Great vegetables but they aren’t the headline act. Even after commenting their second attempt return cold beef. Two strikes and I’m not hanging around for a 3rd disappointment. Maybe a bad day to come when...the manager isn’t on duty but just basic errors make it unworthy for another visit. Nice staff but I’m not paying to eat them.More

My wife and I went with friends on Easter Sunday for a roast. The service,food and value for money was excellent. Beef was so tender,chicken was delicious and the veg including cauliflower cheese and beautiful yorkshires made it an altogether great meal. Sami and her...team gave unbeatable service. We will definitely return soon to taste Dan the chefs lovely food. Well done all👍.More

Really recommend this lovely place. My husband and I and our little dog came for early drinks and food on Saturday evening. The location is perfect. The staff were very attentive and friendly and the food ( we had a mixture of little dishes) was...fantastic and plentiful. Definitely recommend and we will return. We were visiting nearbyMore

Great location on the river and an unexpected live band. Friendly staff and food was good as well. I had a very nice Caesar Salad. Would recommend a visit if passing 👍

The food was very slow to arrive. And unfortunately they had told my daughter they could do a gluten free burger but she thankfully realised the burger was not gluten free when it was served if she had eaten it she would have been very...ill. They need more education on GF and more choices.More

We decided to try Floods Tavern for lunch after hearing good reviews and we weren’t disappointed. There is a lovely river terrace and outdoor bar area and the surroundings are lovely. We had lunch from the new Summer menu which was really tasty, good quality...and reasonably priced. The staff were really welcoming and friendly. It must be one of the best locations in town for having a few drinks and a meal next to the river. Will definitely be back !More

We went for bottomless brunch for my partners 40th birthday, when we arrived we were greeted with a warm welcome and some decorations had been put on the table a nice little touch. The Prosecco then started flowing 🙂 The Ranch platter we chose to...have was lovely as was the Chill. We had plenty more drinks whilst sitting in the sun with a great view of the river. I would highly recommend, great food, great service. We will definitely be back. We had a great time, thanks 🙂More

The location of floods tavern sells it really. I'd describe the food as 'basic', but I really enjoyed sitting with my partner in the courtyard looking over across the river and adjoining fields. Overall I'd say its a pretty nice place to go for a...drink.More

Hi l don't work for the pub but I have never had a bad meal there in 13 years so I think it's safe enough.
