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.

As it's Friday we decided to have fish and chips (chippy tea). Honestly the best fish in the area. You can clearly tell they use a home made beer batter and it makes all the difference. Portions, as usual, were more than enough and the...food came out quickly after ordering. We have been here many times and the food and service remain excellent. They have now added some lovely flower displays to the outside area which makes the experience even better. Highly recommended if you have yet been.More

We had a brilliant lunch here. My partner loves a typical English roast on a Sunday and I don't eat meat! Not many places in this area can offer such a varied selection of non meat dishes. The mussels with leeks and cider cream sauce...were the best thing I've eaten in ages, only downside - I couldn't finish them! Service was quick and efficient. We will definitely be back.More

Avoid at all costs. Staff are horrible. Full of attitude and totally unfriendly. The customer is an invonvenience. It seems to be two restaurants who do not get on. You order food in one and tea from another. Wait ages to get served, then for...food, then run around to pay the bill. A complete shambles!!More

Stopped here for a morning coffee on our last visit to Los Alcazares. We had eaten here before and liked the location. We sat indoors, which was very nicely decorated, and we were served immediately by a friendly waitress. Coffee was good and reasonably priced....Will definitely go back here on our next visit to Los Alcazares.More

Yet again the Chefs at Tipsy Thistle managed to deliver a superb Christmas Lunch. All courses presented like a true A la Carte restaurant and quality and quantity didn't disappoint either..... No wonder we had to book as the place was heaving when we were...there! We went back a couple of weeks later on a Sunday and again were not disappointed.... Choice of Beef, Chicken,Pork and Ham all of which were superb and service also, as usual, was spot on.More

Good location Good seating Good food xxx Been here a few times and always good Thought we would try Sunday lunch! Didn’t know until after we sat down and ordered but the table next to us got a nice table cloth & Christmas napkins ❤️...if I had known I would have booked or asked for the Christmas menu🙃 It made me feel uncomfortable…. Anyway I missed out on the parsnips and Brussels which are my favourite vegetables (I don’t eat meat either) so all I had was peas carrots cabbage a Yorkshire pudding with roasties…More

We had lunch here today. It's a busy spot as it is in a good location with lots of indoor and outdoor seating. Menu options are varied, with typical wraps, paninis, baguettes, etc, on offer. Portion size was good, and food was tasty. My only...negative..... service is slow, and staff seem a little disinterested. It's definitely worth a visit.More

A delicious evening meal at this characterful bar and restaurant on the 525 "strip". Menu has an English bias - non the worse for that and I enjoyed a delicious steak pie with peas, mash and gravy. My wife was equally impressed by her mussels...in cream, caper and wine sauce. A shared pavlova for dessert. Well recommended !More
