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.

This Pub hardly needs any more 5 star reviews but I just had to review it. I’ve been all over the world and this is THE nicest and most beautiful Pub I’ve EVER been to. No exaggeration. The proprietor should charge admission to come and...and view all the stuff that’s decorates the Pub. If cleanliness is important to you, I’d also say it’s THE cleanest restaurant I’ve ever been to. My wife and I split the steak dinner which was excellent but the club sandwich looked fabulous as well. The two other patrons I asked about the sandwich assured me it was. It’s a treat to go here and don’t miss out on it.More

Had a lovely evening. The food was good and quiet atmosphere. Generous portions. The dessert wasn’t too sweet. It was perfect really. The deep fried plaice had a delicious thin crispy batter. The steak was flavourful. I strangely loved the mash potatoes, pleasantly flavourful with...thick gravy.More

You should be ok just to walk in. Just depending on the size of your party it may be better to ring and book if you party is more than two or three.
