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.

Not been in for years. What a shock, unkempt and in a poor state of decor, such a shame . 1 person working the bar, it felt like they had walked in off the street to pull pints. There are no words of encouragement to...make this a positive review. Such a shame for what was a thriving pub.More

The experience was bad. I was called for a meeting on 29.05.2023 in the morning to meet Vanessa the general manager. It was a no show, the place was not open and the interviewer was not available. This clearly shows the staff and the management...is not serious with their work. If they can't manage an meeting, I highly doubt their attitude toward their customers.More

Used to be around £5 for a pint of beer & a wine but has recentaly gone to £8.50 for the same. The entertainment on a friday night has gone from good bands to glorified karaoke solo artists. The large tvs are now smallish tvs...for sport and when i attended on a saturday evening there was only pop music showing instead of all the football results in a bar where everbody was over 40. Gone downhill and want be returning.More

This seems to be a “drinkers pub”. The building is beautiful and old but doesn’t seem to be well looked after. Shame.

Hello Janet R Thanks for your review - your comments are noted.

We were advised by some locals after a rather bad evening at the Duke of Rothesay in Heysham. Upon arrival we were greeted to a warm welcoming smile from the young lady behind the bar, we ordered a carlsberg and a cask ale , we...were surprised at the amount of casks there was a available. .. the glass was nice and chilled and the carlsberg had plenty of life in it ! However we were quite baffled as we learnt this was a mitchells run pub as the Duke of Rothesay we previously visited was run down and desserted. I would highly recommend and would like to thank the staff on that day for a memorable experienceMore

Went in here one night as an alternative to the Royal. Atmosphere zero, clientele rough. In fact left the place as 3 very drunk men at bar so vulgar and actually didn't feel safe - and bar staff doing nothing about it. Won't even give...this place a second chance after that.More
