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.

Went for an early evening Sunday meal. Friendly welcome by staff who were attentive throughout. Good selection on menu at reasonable prices. Good sized portions. Very tasty food, which was well presented and served promptly. Lovely log fire. Very busy. Well worth a return visit.

We feel very lucky to be in walking distance of this great place. So many lovely meals- never been disappointed. As usual the food was excellent and so plentiful. The service as always was great- cheerful and helpful staff. We were particularly impressed with the...provision for the children and so lovely to see a children’s menu that was child size portions of adult food- not the fish fingers etc. that you so often see. We will continue to be regulars!More

Called Wednesday lunch 17 January. Was passing and decided to go in. Passed many times but this was the first visit. Pleasantly surprised. Warm and cosy and made very welcome by the young man and young lady. Service with a smile. French onion soup to...start and sausage and mash with vegetables for main. Absolutely spot on, could not fault any of it, pat on the back for the Chef. Both dogs also made welcome. Would highly recommend a visit. Steve PierceMore

A group of four of us called in for dinner and I've got to say it was superb. Two of us had the moules mariniere for starter and they were delicious. We kinda tasted each others mains and the short rib and the cod were...excellent. Top marks.. just how it should be done.More

This is the second time we, as a group, have had our Christmas Evening at the Guy Fawkes. There were 14 of us, this year, and we were superbly looked after! The selection of ales at the bar is good, as is the wine list....We had all selected our three courses beforehand, and we were not disappointed. One person, who had chosen mussels as a starter, said they were some of the best he had ever had. Between us we must have covered every item on the Christmas menu, and no one was disappointed. The service was attentive and friendly and we all had a terrific night! Thank you to everyone at The Guy Fawkes Inn for looking after us so well!More
