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.

Lunch started off badly when we were overcharged 25% on our drinks (possibly an intention fraud on the part of the bar attendant who eventually rectified the shortfall when challenged, the but failed to apologise). I then ordered a medium rare steak with no gravy...and received a rare steak with gravy. I was not so much annoyed with the mistake as being told that they gave me what I ordered. I never order gravy. The meal itself was OK but the staff need training and monitoring.More

Great food at great prices with cold beer. Whats not to love! Meals come out really quickly even with a decent sized crowd in restaurant. Staff did an awesome job both with serving cold beers and dishing out the meals.
