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.

We hadn’t been before but had heard the food was excellent. There is a varied menu and our vegetarian lactose/gluten free person was accommodated. Young staff but very welcoming. Nice atmosphere in a full pub so we were happy. Until the food came that is!...Two of us had the sea bass with risotto. The sea bass was overcooked and the risotto hard! Totally inedible so we told the staff expecting them to do something? But the chef had gone home so the kitchen was closed??? They apologised but nothing they could do! So 3 had dinner and 2 didn’t! Unbelievable! We couldn’t even go anywhere else as some were eating! What a disaster! The chef must have known the hash made of our food so to leave as soon as we were served was pretty disgusting! It goes without saying we won’t be returning!More

Great food and wonderful service and ambience. The welcome was warm and a lovely open fire made it complete. The food was lovely and also the wine and we would definitely recommend it.

I was with a group of 6 ladies enjoying our annual weekend away. We stopped here on Saturday for a pitstop during a walk around the area, It was warm enough to sit on the bench tables outside. We met some of the friendly locals...who stopped to talk. The staff were friendly and the drinks were well needed. We had pre-booked our Sunday lunch. The food was excellent! Piping hot, perfect veg, extra gravy and delicious. I believe we owe a thank you to Tracy the Chef. Again chatty locals, fabulous staff, and cake to take home, its a 10/10 from all of us 😁More

We were very disappointed and found it expensive and not value for money. The Lamb Leg Steak was fatty and chewy. Potatoes were slightly hard. Vegetarian choice was limited to two dishes. The menu on the website was different to the one presented to us...in pub.More

Honestly absolutely awful! I recommend to my friend we go here for lunch after having a nice meal back along. When booking I asked them to make a note that there would be 3 vegans attending, to which they said no problem we have but...roasts. Perfect. So we ordered 3 nut roast and a salmon. We got told straight away they had no salmon, and then 5 mins later that they had no nut roasts our drinks we ordered were 3 lime and sodas and an elderflower, we hadn’t even had a sip when we were told to pretty much leave as they had no food for us. The lady who told us was nearly about to cry and we all felt very sorry for her. An hour or so later I then received a phone call to which I thought would be an apology from the place but actually they were calling to say we hadn’t paid for our drinks! Myself and my friends couldn’t believe it! There was no apology and I just told the lady they couldn’t feed us so we left our drinks untouched as the women serving us agreed with. They just said ok and out the phone down! Disgusting service and will never be coming back. We have already told a lot of people who were shocked and also said how bad our experience was.More

Great fire and wonderful lady behind the bar but no accessible toilet and a landlord that stopped the useful chat about access with the aforementioned lady to supposedly talk to me about the loo situation. I was a customer, it was rude of him to...interrupt. Another pub that is happy to give disabled people less value than non- disabled. I would be surprised if anything changes.More
