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.

The food was excellent - good prices and cooked well with quality ingredients. The ambience was a little basic, lighting very bright, but you cannot fault the food.

We went for lunch to farewell friends. We pre-ordered out food so that the kitchen knew in advance what we were after. Even though we did that, some of the food - a salad - came out after most of us had finished eating. Overall...it was a good lunch and pretty good value for money. We will be back.More

Went there for dinner, it was a great choice! Staff were friendly, service was prompt and the meal was absolutely superb. I had the chicken in Lemon Butter with vegetables, it was well presented, perfectly cooked and very tasty. I can highly recommend this restaurant!

Friendly service and good prices. We stopped for dinner and a drink, the mussels were in a chowder like creamy soup and the chips were good. The sauce bottle needed a good clean and we only got one fork. Its looking a bit tired but...the other side appears to be getting a facelift.More

Clean and very friendly. Loved the old building. Food was really tasty. I had a chicken burger , it would have been nice to have had a side salad. RJ was a great host. There weren’t a lot of wines to choose from.
