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.

I know the cost of living is gone up but 14e for a takeaway portion of caesar salad is ridiculous. 14e for lettuce, some of it brown , a few croutons and cheese? And 3e extra for not a lot of chicken! The price isn't...justified so I won't be ordering takeaway from there again.More

Was looking forward to good pub food in Bobby's as we had heard so much about it but boy were we disappointed. We had 4 dishes comprising burgers and fish and everything was so poor, even the chips were dry and tasteless. We complained and...were told that the chef would be informed. Im afraid no chef would have sent out the food we received. Utterly tasteless and highway robbery, never again and would advise anybody thinking of visiting to think again. After our meal we left, went to another pub for a drink which included peanuts to take away the taste of Bobby's food.More
