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.

What a fab outlook, unfortunately we got there just before closing time on sunday afternoon, but we were greeted by a lovely lady who told us we could order a drink but no food, thats fine we sat outside overlooking the valley which looks fantastic,...we will go back to try the food. The barman did go around everyone and ask if they wanted another drink as he had called last drinks, great serviceMore

Superlative. They fitted us in seamlessly on one of the busiest days of the year when we turned up a day earlier than our reservation. The staff were incredibly knowledgeable about the menu and local wines. The food was incredible and the view outstanding. Cannot...rate highly enough.More

Nice venue - classic country house overlooking vineyards, but they charge very high prices for what I consider average food - simple dishes with unremarkable ingredients. I found the service to be full of pretentious attitude. The first dish to come out was 'Boquerones in...Bannockburn olive oil'. A tiny portion of preserved (possible from a can) white anchovy fillets - quite common in most dellis where I come from - served with around half an olive chopped and a sprinkle of garnish and olive oil. Ended up being only a few grams each for four people. So the meal started with a strong sense of getting jipped, which set the tone for the rest of the meal. From there is was much the same for the other dishes. Small, simple dishes with common ingredients (although local ingredients that tastes the same quality as mainstream equivalents). The pretentious air and attitude of the service made me feel like it was taboo to complain, and I should be eternally grateful to pay whatever they ask.More

If you read my review, you should realise this is a really good place with an excellent restaurant, location and ambience. I do not understand why the negativity.
