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.

Disappointed, been going to the huntsman for breakfast, lunch, dinner and everything in between for the best of 12 years. Today marks my last time. Portions are going down, prices are going up. Ordered a chicken stir fry today, the portion size was a joke,...a tiny lunch box portion. Had to order a chowder after to go along with it, it was that small. Mentioned this to waitress who said it to chef I presume, and the only answer we got was " itsnout of my control". No apology, nothing. Will never spend another cent here again.More

Had our dinner and was very disappointed with the portions and the prices. The starter fish cakes are full of potato with very little fish and have gotten smaller. The salads are a joke just a few lettuce leaves . One slice of bread with...the chowder. All of the portions have got so small and the prices gone up. Won't be rushing back.More

We went here for our Easter Dinner celebration dinner for 7 of us. The wait staff we very friendly and had great attentiveness to our table, our waiter was so sound! Atmosphere and restaurant was beautiful. We order chicken wings, calamari and fish pies as...starters along with drinks. The wings were quite tasty but not much meat, the calamari was over cooked and chewy but the fish cakes were very nice with great flavour and decent amount of meat. For mains, we ordered 2 supreme of chicken, a fish and chips, strip lion, curry, burger and gojons . The supreme of chicken was amazing, great portion of veg, potatoes and chicken, the fish and chips was great but felt it was a small portion of fish for the price. Strip lion was cooked to perfection and well seasoned, gojons and burger were both decent meals for the kids For dessert we went for a brownie and berry roulade, both very excellent desserts with the roulade standing out! Overall and excellent experience!More

Stayed in the g hotel and they recommended the huntsman across the road. The restaurant is well finished and very comfortable. The lady who greeted us at the door was very professional and curtious. Our waitress was very good. Unfortunately the food was terrible. Our...fish cakes were soggy and tadtless no seasoning. The fish buy was all potatoe and cream and had hardly any fish. Again bo seasoning.More

We were quickly seated without a reservation by a lovely server in a quiet area. The drink orders were taken promptly and we relaxed as we perused the menu…… a nice selection of quality pub style dishes were on offer. The cauliflower soup was delicious...and warm and the fish cakes cooked to perfection. I really enjoyed the pork chop that was cooked to perfection with the right amount of trimmings and sauce and all very well priced. The pub has a great atmosphere with a mix of clients making it a terrific place to sit back relax and enjoy life!!!More

What a fabulously well run business The Huntsman is. Efficient and friendly staff, always a warm welcome, good food, especially the fish pie and burger and nice surroundings, both in the bar and restaurant. We enjoyed good value, generous portioned meals and a good pint...of Guinness (or two!). Highly recommend a visit.More
