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.

Friendly welcome, one of the best ploughman's I've had , ( ham & cheddar ) the pickle and coleslaw was delicious . Other members of group ordered steaks and said they were very good and the home made onion rings very tasty . Great value...for money. The toilets were spotlessly clean . Definately will return, when in the area again .More

Booked a one night stay on line, asked a couple of questions re meals and parking, no reply. Arrived Sunday afternoon, staff all clearing up after a busy lunchtime service. Shown our room, across back carpark on the first floor. (we were the only people...booked in) Only one cup in room, and that was dirty. Stained bed linen and hairs in bed and on bathroom floor. We were offered the other room across the landing, no cups in this one so we brought the clean two we had recently got from the first room. Offered a complementary drink which we accepted and booked breakfast for 9am the next day. Walking back to room at night, lighting left a lot to be desired. Breakfast, what a laugh, we think the only part that was cooked fresh was the fried egg, everything else seemed to have been heated in the micro. Coffee, no spoon, no sugar. Toast that had only had a fleeting meeting with toaster and on the same plate as the puddle of warm baked beans butter for the toast obviously from larger container and dolloped in a small bowl. Back to room pack and checkout, made a coffee, stirring it with my toothbrush handle as now noticed we had no spoons. Walked over to the main building to check out only to find doors locked and all lights off, left keys in room and departed. Last point, both my wife and I have both had dodgy stomachs since the 'breakfast'More

Visited for a family meal early on a Saturday evening. Ellie at front of house was very welcoming and ensured all was good during our first time at The King Alfred. Plenty of choice of food on the menu. It came quickly, was well-presented and...the portions were generous. We had a very positive first experience. With so many neighbourhood pubs disappearing, hopefully locals (and visitors) will help this one continue to thrive. We will be back.More

My husband and I visited with our 2yo daughter. We thought we'd try somewhere in Street as we live here and had heard good things... However, extremely disappointed. We ordered a bruschetta to share for a starter... The tomato/onion mixture was tasty, but lacking in...quantity unfortunately. I had ordered a 'homemade' lasagna which resembled jelly and tasted straight from the freezer. It was inedible... Flavourless with 5 layers of pasta and a smattering of what I presume was mince. The overall temperature of the lasagna wasn't great, some bits hot and others warm at best. The garlic bread was good though 👍 My husband didn't really have any complaints with his, but he was unable to taste anything as he is suffering a badly blocked nose. Not one member of staff came round to check how the food was, if they had, I would of made it known that i was disappointed. Even when we went to pay for the food, the gentleman at the bar didn't ask how it was. We will not be visiting for food again. Extremely disappointed with our visit :(More

Amazing little pub. We booked a room for a night away as Husbands birthday. Decided to have a meal in their restaurant. It was one of the best steak and ale pies I've had. The husband had a ploughman's which was also delicious 😋. The...rooms they provide are excellent value for money and includes a full cooked breakfast. Can highly recommend this lovely little pub and their staff.More
