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.

Enjoyed our meal and drinks at the Pedal Pusher. Menu, although not extensive, gave everyone in our group something to enjoy. Great place to have a meal and drink before going to the Court Theatre.

We had a beautiful meal. We were heading to the theatre and were time poor. Staff understood this, got our mains out quickly and we managed to have a couple of cocktails from their extensive menu. Would definitely recommend and appreciated the customer service. Thanks...for a lovely meal.More

Quiet atmosphere, tasty food, but very poor quantity, poor presentation, and not what was on the menu. Ordered the Fresh Fish, fries and fresh Garden Salad. 2 Fish portions were not much bigger than my two fingers, Fresh Garden Salad was a shredded cabbage (coleslaw...with no dressing), no lemon or tartare sauce for fish, no chutney or relish (as described) and only a small dish containing both tomato sauce and mayo. Partner ordered the Chowder, but no noticeable shrimp in there (but described in the menu). Even at a discounted rate, this was very poor value for money.More

Booked a quick dinner for a group of 12 friends heading off to the Court Theatre. The staff were super friendly and accommodating knowing that we needed to be out at a certain time. They easily feed us all within the hour we had booked....Lovely food and cocktail menu. It was the perfect start to a really nice evening out with friends.More

Had read good reviews for this restaurant. Everything lived up to our expectations. The staff were friendly and courteous. The décor was refreshing and pleasant. My wife and I had Rib Eye steaks. They were cooked, plated and served and were probably some of the...very best we have ever eaten in a restaurant. Prices were moderate. Very good selection of drinks to accompany our meals. Please, have one of their jelly tip cheese cakes. They are made by a staff member and fresh each day. The only fault was absolutely nothing to do with the staff, meals, premises here, but via a young couple. They were patrons, obnoxious, extremely loud and couldn't care about anything other than themselves. Eventually I suggested that they quieten down but this was met by a bumptious response from the male. He quickly learnt that yep, they had rights as he claimed, as indeed did my wife, myself, other patrons and the staff. When I stood up, he quickly paid for their drinks and left. My wife and I would thoroughly and honestly also recommend this restaurant, meals, and staff.More

Good, affordable gastro pub meals with friendly, helpful service. We started our meal by sharing some garlic bread - it was beautifully presented and very tasty. We both ordered the fish and chips, which were nicely cooked. The only slight disappointment was the sticky date...pudding that we shared for dessert - it was just okay, have certainly had better. Will definitely return but probably won't order dessert next time.More

Not been in here for a few years, passing by and thought we would give it a try! That was the first mistake, trying to order a meal when the waitress wasn’t fluent in speaking or understanding English and took a few goes in ordering...2 breakfasts, asked for tea and then left us sat there without milk until we asked for some. The breakfast was poor, the hash brown was flat, sausage were the smallest I’ve seen and had been sliced into to make them look bigger, there was 1 mushroom and a quarter of a tomato, the rest of it was cold and the toast and I use that term lightly was just toasted on one side and next to no butter! The place was freezing cold and the door was left wide open we and others in there were sat with hats and coats on. Poor service, poor food, grubby looking and we should have cancelled when we were saying about the place being cold and dirty. Wouldn’t go back there again.More

The food was lovely. The wedges with cheese & bacon was a huge plate. The pork belly bites were delicious, as was the Moro cheesecake. The staff were attentive to start with, but later it got really busy & the level of service declined. Our...dessert came quickly, but drinks ordered at the same time were forgotten (but on the bill!).More

The food was passable - nothing to write home about but the service from the young waitress was hopeless and the toilets are very smelly and dirty, the restaurant floor is very sticky and smells like old beer in the place. We would not go...back again.More
