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.

I attended a psychic night at the Brit back last month where a 2 course meal was provided along with the show when purchasing a ticket. There was a large variety of options available for starter and main course which was a huge suprise compared...to other venues I have attended which supply a basic set meal. I had garlic mushrooms to start and a spag bol main which were both absolutely beautiful! It was super busy there but that didn't stop the very small staffing team from working quickly and effectively to ensure everyone was seated, served and more importantly happy in a short amount of time. The atmosphere was amazing with even the bar owners getting involved in the psychic night. They were beyond pleasent and I couldn't recommend it more! I highly recommend an event at The Brit!More

Such a nice place, really cool, quirky decor, but still the feel of a traditional pub. Really great range of drinks and real ales, as well as good selection of gins and wines. Everyone was really friendly, and it felt warm and welcoming. I would...definitely recommend it.More

A lovely Sunday dinner as a family with 2 vegans. Staff were friendly and the pub was welcoming, but the fire didn’t seem to be working when we came and so it was cold in the pub, it didn’t feel like there was alternative heating...on. I can only comment on the vegan dinner but it was lovely, and the vegan cheesecake was lovely. Will be back to try their other vegan optionsMore

The friendliest of welcomes, with great food, super atmosphere and lovely Lily our waitress. I felt like I was enjoying the best meal round at a friend’s house. The new owners are doing an amazing job in making their place feel like a relaxing and...memorable treat, which it certainly is. I can’t wait to return for another Sunday lunch. Thank you to all the staff and chefs I had a wonderful time.More

I’d heard a lot of good things about the Brit. I kind of knew one of the owners who was a waiter at a different restaurant. Went there with my fiancée for my birthday and was blown away by the welcome, to start with, then...the atmosphere, service and the food! I felt like a guest at a friend’s house. There was live music- acoustic guitar and a great singer. Not so loud so you couldn’t enjoy a romantic meal- just perfect. Will definitely be back, amazing evening. If you haven’t been you should go, you will not be disappointed. Great food, great atmosphere, great friendly service- what more could you want?More
