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.

Went here for dinner and I really enjoyed it. I had goats cheese as a starter and duck as a main. Didn't have dessert as I was too full The staff are lovely. The service was quick. It's easy to find, just a few mins walk from the city centre. Overall I really enjoyed it and would go back again.
