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.

We had our staycation in Waterville last week and came across this place. The pints of Guinness are like mothers milk and the food is delicious. The staff are very friendly and I will definitely be back here again soon 👌🏻

We dropped in by chance and had the most amazing meal, it's really worth a visit. The fish and chips was 10/10 as was the roast of the day. The desserts are definitely worth trying
