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.

Chose the travellers to host dinner for about 25 people for my parents 60th wedding anniversary. The manager set up an area for us, did the decorations and it looked great. Food was pre ordered and all courses were served by staff so that we...were all eating at the same time, absolutely no complaints about the meals, service or atmosphere!! A fantastic time was had by all! Lovely local pub.More

Absolutley beautiful food! Friendly staff but not the iver powering kind and cosy pub atmosphere. We went for the first time about a month ago and been back 3 times since, its that good. Tonight we had the feather blade of beef with mash dumpling...and honey carrots, and the lasagne with garlic bread and salad both were fantastic. They also have an italian night on a monday 3 courses for less than a tenner, and there not shabby portions either. Deffo recomend.More

Arrived at 5.30pm was seated straight away by a lovely young lady who was very cheerful and polite. Drinks order was taken within minutes and served. I chose to have sirloin steak chops and peppercorn sauce the steak was beautiful it did have some fat...on it but very tasty. The home cooked chips were so nice and very tasty as well as the onion rings. My son had the mince and dumplings with mash and he said it was amazing the best he’s had. We had plenty on our plates that we couldn’t finish it all. The young gentleman who served our meal was also very friendly and couldn’t do enough for us. We had one Coke each and the bill was £43 will definitely return.More

Went for Sunday lunch today, 1st Time but we thought we would give it a try!! And sorry but not good Vegetables were all watery and everything tasted the same, I got belly pork which was all fat and tasteless. My wife got the feather...blade beef which was cold and also fatty. The roast potatoes tasted like Aunt Bessie’s and not cooked through as tasted of powder. Won’t be returning sorry back to our normal Sunday lunch at the Red Lion on A167 👌👌👌More

Had a fantastic birthday meal for a family 80th birthday. Great food - with very generous portions - and the staff could not have done more for us. Thank you.
