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.

Really nice little restaurant on two floors. Cosy ambiance and friendly staff. Food was just lovely, nothing fancy just really good quality home cooking and generous portions. Was all served piping hot. Highly recommended.

Great basic home style meal! The service was warm and welcoming. The duck was a little dry but the pork chop was absolutely outstanding.

Great staff, good food phenomenal price. We booked a table which is a good idea as many people were turned away even on a rainy Monday evening. I asked for a Caesar salad as a main course, not a problem, nor was adding fries and...putting my husbands salad on the side so I could eat it. Rhubarb crumble was delicious just the right amount of tartness. All in all one of the cheapest, but best meals with lovely service and a great atmosphere.More

Since we went during a busy time, it hard to get the attention of a waiter. They finally toke our order. We got a hamburger and I got shepherds pie. Both were very good. My wife got a calypso coffee,which was excellent.

The restaurant was very accommodating, as we were meant to eat with our partners, however they had got delayed on the golf course, and would be late. The restaurant let us order our food and we were accommodated very well.
