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.

Had a great time, few quiet drinks and some nibbles. Team were so helpful and welcoming, cosy atmosphere and tasty food made for a nice night. Be sure to checkout their loyalty app - Mixr, for even better value and even some freebies.

Amazing rear seating, especially on a hot day like today ☀️, we visited after a family trip see the Vulcan Bomber nearby and I enjoyed the chicken and bacon salad, washed down with a couple pints of shandy 👌🏼

Woeful. Clueless staff and a completely poor service with food service. Whoever has voted this as No 1 in Bawtry must be taking bribes. It’s an average pub with third rate service. We won’t be back. A horror show. Avoid.More

Yes Sarah, Every day until 7pm. That's simply because the pub can get very crowded and noisy after that which wouldn't be too comfortable for them.
