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.

The setting is really lovely, pretty and comfortable. I had the cottage pie which I thought was pretty average considering the price. Salad was all mushed in dressing so you couldn't see if salad was fresh or old. Don't think I would return in a...hurry.More

Went there for lunch recently in early January 2024 Seemed to take forever to get soup of the day ( which was fairly tasteless potato and leak) and the chicken breast which was very uninspiring. We left most of the food behind. As locals we...won’t be going back until things improve.More

Our visit to Montville Cafe Bar and Grill was a very pleasant surprise. The ambience was great, the food was better. The menu was high quality and not at all like the usual pub feed. I had the rump steak which was juicy and cooked...to perfection. The beers are cold with a great range on offer. If you get a chance drop in to the beer garden for Saturday lunch with live music. You will have a great time.More

We got mouldy bread. The waitress was informed and she took it away with a slight sorry about that. Nothing else was mentioned. Makes you wonder what else is going on in the kitchen. Not sure i will be returning again.

60 members of our Probus club enjoyed Christmas in July here. The 3 course meal was astoundingly good and the service as friendly as it gets. On a cold night it was warm inside.

Great food, with great range of choices to suit everyone. Staff were all so friendly, helpful, and attentive. Service was quick and meals were delicious and great value. They have the best shoestring fries! Great atmosphere and cool Tudor style pub. Will definitely be back...next time I'm in town!More

Had a very nice lunch here with friends, sitting outside with the water misters going to alleviate the heat. Food was good and the staff pleasant and attentive. With Montville's 'trendy' reputation, it was great to find somewhere not charging extra simply for the 'experience'....We'd certainly stop there again.More

The menu hasn’t changed for years This is about the 5th time we have come here to give it another go. The chicken Parma was terrible and so was the vegan lasagne. It was just mushy as it had obviously been frozen then microwaved. Very...disappointing considering the price of the food. For such a lovely place to sit in it’s a shame the food is terrible every timeMore
