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.

My family has been going to this pub since 2005. It has never been as bad as it is now. The new management is absolutely awful. I asked for a pizza tonight and asked that it not be burnt as I watched the pizza cheff...scrap burnt edges off pizzas and put thm out for service. I also asked for garlic to be added to me pizza. What did I get? A pizza with no garlic and chewy, half cooked pizza dough. OMG! Bring back the old Manager when Staff stayed loyal and customer service was a thing. If upper Management does not take notice of the decline in reveiws an people going to this pub, then it just shows they about power and not customer service as many staff have left due to bullying and they cannot even get a chef so the menu is reduced to one page. Get a grip guys before it is too late!More

This is a brand new restaurant in Westerville with loads of outdoor seating on two sides of the restaurant. One side has sort of a playground feel with grass and swings and a bar as well as a huge screen that was showing a football...game when we went. We opted for the quieter side. The inside looked cool as well. It’s part of a chain around here and has good food that has been tested elsewhere. Mostly burgers and salads. I would suggest umbrellas for the tables since it was quite sunny when we were there. Also a Happy Hour would be great.More

$33 was paid for these “scallops” and chips. Enough said. I would have preferred a $3 carry cup for HJ

Second chance and terrible again! will never be coming back. Overpriced and definitely did not get what we paid for, when we ask for scallops we’d expect more than 4…. Other members of our table even commented on how overcooked the prawns were and the...chorizo was so tough, the roast was so tasteless, the list goes on. Usually we do not like to complain, but we were all very disappointed with our lunch, which was meant to be a very special Birthday lunch, turned out to be terrible. Should’ve asked for a refund this time😏More

I was looking forward to a traditional Sunday roast. The pork was served in 1cm thick slabs - cold and covered in hot gravy. I'm not sure what was presented as crackling - whatever it was it was inedible. The vegetables were well cooked but...drowned in excess gravy.More

I have eaten here before and food was nice so I took friends who have flown into town to visit. And our food was small potions and one was half cooked. For $30 a serve one would expect better effort it was public holiday Christmas...Tuesday. So maybe relief staff to what we were use to. But was very disappointing and upsetting as we told our friends was a nice place to eat :(More

Attended a family group dinner for 22 people - restaurant changed the booking to the function room. Disgraceful excuse for a room. Freezing cold, dark and dingy. Small portable old heater in room not turned on . Food overcooked large portions but poor quality food....For a federal group amenity very poor indeed. Would not recommend after this evening’s meal.More

Normally we get a good meal and service. But tonight's beef schnitzel was the worst I have ever been served. The steak was only about 4 mm thick covered by a huge layer of burnt breadcrumbs. I showed it to the lady in charge, who...said, "I will mention it to the chef." and she walked off. What a let down from my local pub.More

Got excited that they had scallops on the menu. Was really disappointed with my meal. It was certainly not good value for money. The scallops were tiny and tasted like they’d been microwaved. My husband got steak for the same price and that looked like...a really good size meal.More

The food and service were exemplary. I am the fussiest steak eater and it was cooked to perfection. We were given an apprentice discount - this apprentice cooked steak better than many experienced chefs. A big thank you to the ladies for their friendliness and...service. Highly recommended.More

Ordered Asian Chicken Salad thinking it would be fresh Asian greens, a bit spicy and nice charred chicken scattered across the top. However, deep fried chicken thick with breadcrumbs over a soggy mass of grated vegies and bean sprouts smothered in bottleed sweet chilli sauce...- hard to stomach. I was ravenous so I managed to get through it, but made me feel ill.More
