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 were there on Saturday at 1 pm without any booking. Everything went nice and smoothly. We could order quickly and the food - which tasted excellent - came on a short notice. Same with desserts, just in time and lovely taste.

A very welcoming restaurant to begin with. Service and food was delightful. Atmosphere was very loud which was disappointing. Private function upstairs where children continually ran up and down staircase and around table guests downstairs, no parental control. Very disappointing dinner experience unfortunately for these...Australian guests.More

We were in Gore a couple of nights and wanted to take our hosts to dinner so they picked The Thomas Green Restaurant. And what a great choice it was too. We booked a table but it wasn't so busy that we would have needed...to. The atmosphere was great. The decor great. The staff were super friendly. And the food .....hmmmmmm the food ... it was bloody good. Highly recommend stopping in if you're in the area. You won't be disappointed.More

Dinner was very nice, had the pan fried blue cod and salad, service was quick, atmosphere was lovely and was having a great catch up with my sister until a table bout 10 turned up and sat close by, there language and loudness was unacceptable.

Waited too long for meals to arrive, cant cook a steak, even waitress agreed it was poor, over priced for what you get . If your used to European standards of food and service this isn’t for you

Another fantastic night dining at the Thomas Green tonight with family and friends. Absolutely recommend it from the top service we received to all the fabulous meals. I would highly recommend the baked Brie and the Mussel Linguine. The current chef is excellent as are...all staff we encountered.More

Dined there May 2023. The food was ok, service ok.. except when I ordered a hot chocolate at the end of our meal, I requested a small one.. in a small cup, I didn’t want a big milk drink, when it it arrived at our...table it was in a large cup, when I said that I had requested a small drink I was told they don’t do small hot chocolates! Then the waitress went onto say that if I had got it in a small cup it would have been the same price… really … that was not the reason I had requested a small drink, I thought this response was very unnecessary and embarrassing. Another thing that we couldn’t believe was the young waitress clearing a table next to us, when she went to wipe it down she just swiped all the crumbs onto the floor for customers to tramp into the carpet… interesting…. Who trains these people?More

Went there on Saturday the 25th of March, for a belated birthday lunch, the service was good, but sadly the food was not up to its previous standard. The chowder my Mother had was ordinary, my wife and I had the spare ribs, four small...ribs each, and a lot of chips, no salad, just watercress on the ribs. Now I suspect the ribs were bought across the road at countdown in a packet and heated up… I have had them. I do not expect to pay restaurant prices and get shop bought ribs. The garlic bread was good.. the selection on the menu was limited.. no steak option at all.. overall a poor experience.. get a new chef, the servicing staff were good but looked frightened.. Lord knows what MLT is thinking.More

We went to the Thomas Green for dinner and were extremely disappointed with the service which was pretty well nonexistant. When we arrived we were shown to a table and given menus. After over an hour, and 2 people from our group complaining that we...hadn't been attended to we finally had our orders taken. We observed and explained to the manager that 5/6 tables that came in after us had been served and some had finished their meals. Recommend" Howl at the Moon" which is just across the street.More
