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.

My wife and I and 2 sets of friends have recently moved to the area in static homes. we have all visited the Clifton arms either together or on our own and eaten various dishes from the Menu and we all have commented how good...the Food is. Last week we came with our daughter and today 11/05 we brought my mother. Every meal we’ve had has been delicious and well cooked. We are looking forward to our future visits to enjoy the great food and superb customer service ThanksMore

The food in this restaurant is on a higher level. The sirloin steak and pork belly were outstanding. My partner likes steak well done (no blood) and so it was but just well done, succulent, juicy and so tasty. The triple cooked chips are like...no other - tasty succulent and creamy and the duaphinoise potato equal to them. The lemon and lime cheesecake and apple crumble, well you have to experience this at least once and enjoy with a smooth red Malbec. The service is excellent, warm and welcoming and though the restaurant and bar were very busy, gave time to chat. This quality is delivered with prices on a par with local restaurants. Looking forward to our next visit!More

Tried out for the first time, got to say really impressed. Under new management since September certainly a very warm & friendly welcome. The service was second to none, all staff proffesional, friendly & polite. The food was of very good quality, very fresh &...tasty, came in a timely manner. The meals are a good portion size & I would say great value for money. I'll be back very soon. Thanks for the wonderful food. Zoe (owner) is so lovely & genuine & friendly she makes it a pleasant pub to keep coming back to. 😊 I love Pablo, fluffiest dog I've ever met, so friendly. ❤️More

Dropped in on the way home for Sunday lunch...although it was 6pm. The pub is under new management and the team are working hard to bring a tired pub back up to scratch. New carpets in the bar and a fresh coat of paint in...the restaurant have really transformed the place into a warm welcoming pub. The food was excellent, served promptly and piping hot, and everything was fresh. Will be going back for more and will certainly be trying one of their dry aged steaks soon.More

Drove past this pub many times and wondered what it is like for food, and just to say that I never fancied going in as the word I had heard of it didn't inspire me, but then this week I was told it had recently...changed management and was fantastic, the food and everything so I thought I would give it a try. (the word had come via my sister). So I collected my friend and off we went, although my sister had given it a good rating I went with open mind, upon entering we was greeted by a very friendly member of staff with a warm welcome, asked if they was serving food and told yes, ordered some drinks and went to table, selected on the menu salt and peeper chicken strips, nice chunk piece's of chicken with a salad lovely sauce on it. now for the mains we tried the steak and ale pie, which with past experience in other places I wasn't expecting anything to blow my mind, how wrong can this idiot be, the meat was heaven on the tongue, the gravy was the best experience you could have with clothes on, and what I really liked was the pastry top was not like most place's with 3inch deep puff pastry, it was just the right thickness well cooked to perfection, the veg and everything was cooked just as it should be, and unlike a lot of places it was hot to the last mouthful, even the veg, if I had to be critical (and I 'am) I would have liked my coffee a bid hot to start with, but that is me being picky. Now I like to look at one or two bad reviews before I do mine to get a general feeling of opinion, it usually won't affect my mind, UNLESS,, like one I did read titled "my review" done in August this year, 1 Star, worst pub grub they have had, well the only thing I can say to that is maybe you was in a different Clifton Arms or the new management hadn't yet taken over, as I understand it they have taken their own chef with them, and today they are turning out fantastic food, I suggest you go back and tr4y again and if you are still of the same opinion I will pay your bill, I will be ringing them after this and tell them the same so they will have my number to contact me if you need it to be. On the subject of staff, the young lady that looked after us ( MYRION ) was very good at her job and very professional, and was a people person which is rare these days, and the gent who's name I did not get, ( they serve Blondes ) was just the same, the boss should be proud to have such staff, they are the front of house and good at it. Well done to the staff. THANK YOU for a wonderful meal. ***** I won't comment on all the menu till I have tried it.More

Thought we had booked via website, but found out the website details are still going to previous owner so the Clifton Arms are not getting the bookings - so phone directly to get your reservation. 4 of us dined in and the service was excellent,...attentive and the right amount of friendliness. Food, best meal, we all agreed, that we’d had in a while. 2 had linguine, 2 had belly pork. De-lic-ous! There was no rush to leave, we had dessert and drinks and had time to catch up with each other. Well done Clifton Arms, we hope to be back next time we are in town.More

Sorry but I do not know. Perhaps Google the pubs website. We were only in the area for a couple of days Or maybe even look up their phone number and speak to them? Not being sarcastic, just trying to help.
