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.

Popped in for lunch as had a voucher in the entertainment book. Food was tasty, service polite but certainly not bubbly. Very cool place!

If the seating in the restaurant is full, there is seating on the bar side as well...bonus getting to watch the rugby. Good priced food that for a pub tasted good and great sizing. Friendly staff and great cocktail.

Location wise it’s quite hidden, I take this is a neat spot for neighbouring business to grab a drink & food after work or so. Service was great, friendly staff. Food was good, platter was delicious minus a few ribs not being as tasty. Overall,...was good value.More

Super food. Well balanced menu which had plenty of choice. Love it when there are so many delicious choices it is hard to choose. Only constructive criticism... Wish management would ensure staff don't clear plates until all in the group have finished eating. In my...book, its a basic restaurant rule. We will be back.More

Service was quick and delightful so exceeded expectations. However not a 5?star review...as did not blow me away, was good value and good customer service slightly above what I would expect. Sundae for dessert was exceptional however , a masterpiece I believeMore

Been here a few times, was a shame they couldn't fit us in until 7.30pm but restaurant over half empty when we arrived. Appreciated it wasn't a problem to make my burger bunless, didn't appreciate they couldn't tell me what the vegetables were even after...she asked the chef! Please do not clear away plates & offer dessert menus when two out of four people are still eating! So rude!!More

The meal was nice but was let down by the staff. On arrival staff made our family feel unwelcome. It appeared everything was a bother. Some lessons on good customer service would be beneficial.

No booking necessary - so a nice friendly place to drop in for a family or friends lunch or dinner. We we advised there would be a 30 minute wait due to a large party of 25 having arrived just before us. We waited a...little while for our order to be taken - but all up we were served with ing 20-25 minutes. The food was tasty and very good value for money. Will definitely go there again!More
