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.

Being an English man here in Italy with my partner, I was intrigued and rather excited about the prospect of a Sunday roast, being the bedrock of our traditions back home. Starting with the obvious, had a great feel, atmosphere, and captured the true essence...of a proper “British boozer”! The choice of beers were great, served at the perfect temperature, and reasonably priced. Initial impressions were ‘so far, so good’. However, and I’d like to add we were the first customers of the day, when the two beef roasts were brought out the meat itself and the accompanying gravy were stone cold. We immediately sent it back, barely having to explain why as if they already knew. Furthermore, at the end a small apology was given bookended by ‘it happens’; for which my immediate reaction (albeit silently) was “it most certainly does not”! The rest of the plate offered great crispy, perfectly seasoned potatoes, a lovely Yorkshire pudding, and slices of meat (once warmed up) was delicious. In all rather pleasant. From a U.K. born person this is high praise indeed. Though this happiness was short lived, as upon paying we had been misinformed that a beer was included in the price, and were hit for €52 covering two plates of food and 3 pints. Rather expensive, and a little uncomfortable as back home the temperature ‘faux pas’ would’ve come with at minimum a small discount, most likely drinks taken off the overall total. As an experience it was overall just okay. Will return, hopefully to be met with better customer service.More

Italian food is great & we all know that, but sometimes I really miss a good old Sunday Roast. Couldn't believe that I'd found a place that not only does a Sunday Roast, but one with Yorkshire Pudding too and it is good! Haven't tried...the roast turkey yet, but the roast beef is very nice, it's thinly sliced & rare ( thank goodness), served with gravy, lovely veg that is not over cooked and roast potatoes. Had a Scotch egg to start ( Uova in Kilt!) and a very good Apple Crumble for dessert. After living in Italy for many, many years, it was an emotional moment to find a place where I can have a taste of home. I suggested they add Horseradish ( Salsa Rafano) to complete the British Sunday Roast experience. I cannot wait to return, Booking advised as it is very popular! Wonder if they do a Christmas Roast?!More

Researched pubs in Milan before I arrived and seeing this was No 1, I thought I'd better pay a visit while the wife and daughter was shopping. Nice area, a bit of a walk from my hotel, nice greeting and welcome, great selection of beers...of tap. and had my first Scottish Club sandwich which was great. Prices and atmosphere great.More

Food here is British/American based and was good. We had a Traditional Club Sandwich and Fish and Chips. Service was a little slow and we felt forgotten about once we had our food, we had to attempt to go to the bar before being told...it was table service and then being asked for our order, this happened on two occasions after we had waited some considerable time to ask for further drinks. Staff were ok but not overly friendlyMore
