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.

We opted for the over 60’s menu and my wife had the lasagne and I had the steak and ale pie and wow were we surprised at the generous proportions. Cooked to perfection, both meals were delicious, the Double Dragon ale was sublime and the...waitress service was excellent This inn easily gets 5 stars. Just be careful driving because the last mile or so is single track but well worth it .More

Second time here, first time left a fab review, but tonight, what a disappointment. Staff referred to us as mate, although we reserved a table we were put by the bar, not good, and the food was awful. Had the fish and chips, very old...fat used for both. Tainted everything. Couldn't leave a tip, it was that bad.More

We visited for our son’s 18th birthday. The menu is really varied, from salads to steaks to pasta. The staff are super friendly and the portions are very generous. Food is cooked fresh for each order so there can be a wait at busy times....The restaurant was very busy on a Thursday night - I recommend booking in advance. We took a birthday cake with us which we had for dessert with some ice cream, the staff couldn’t have been more helpful with this and even started the Happy Birthday singing! Highly recommended.More

The restaurant was warm and friendly. The menue choice is great for traditional British food . We were spolit for choice with good variation of starters and main courses. The portions were huge and ifvyou have a big appetite you will not be disappointed. Personally...it was to much for me and I should have skipped the starters ! Service was quick and the food presentation was good. The drinks were a little slow but nothing to be annoyed about.More
