About Thomas Tripp
At Thomas Tripp we believe wholeheartedly in the vitality that a traditional local pub brings to the community and we welcome you to join in; take in our smuggling history, enjoy our beers, ales and fine wines, sample our freshly prepared food (our seafood is fab!) or perhaps have a boogie or sing along on our live music nights.
We also house The Seafood Shack which is a hidden gem in Christchurch serving the very best locally sourced seafood, shellfish, surf and turf and great steaks.
Our waiter, Ollie was excellent. Attentive and friendly. My only reservation about booking again was that I had to actually force my way through people in the garden to get out of the pub!
Food was good but service paid no heed to COVID 19 measures. No face masks or visors and no table service. Had to queue at bar for food and drink orders. Screens across the bar but little social distancing whilst standing at the bar waiting to be served. Bar staff looked a bit stressed and made loads of mistakes on a single order. Missed off some things, added others not ordered and then gave wrong change. To be fair partly due to difficulty talking and hearing through Perspex screen.
Is what it is.
The food was good and love the pub... however we were let down by the service. We were informed by a young waiter that the Falafel was no longer available. After browsing the menu and realising that was literally the only vegetarian main on the menu I asked the waitress (Lydia I believe) If they could offer anything else. She very bluntly replied “No” and didn’t offer any alternative or try to help in any way. The service at the bar was also quite disorganised and a bit rude as halfway through taking an order he started dealing with a problem from another member of staff. I think they may have had a busy and stressful evening prior to our arrival however It’s a shame that our experience was affected by this.
Can be a bit slow with delivering drinks.
Such a great evening in one of my favourite places. The food was excellent. Can't wait for the live bands to come back.
Fantastic Sunday lunch, great portion sizes and brilliant service!
Always spot on in every way. Best pub in town, in fact for miles.
What a wonderful evening we spent at the seafood shack. The service was brilliant, the guidelines around Covid fully adhered to. The food was out of this world, we will definitely be coming back soon. Thankyou Thomas Tripp for making our first meal out post lockdown so enjoyable
It was my first outing to a pub since lockdown and I was very apprehensive.I needn't have been at all because from when we first walked in all the staff were very friendly, attentive and helpful.I hope to be back soon!
I booked via the app for drinks, a snack and live music after a long lockdown. Great service and atmosphere without being unduly hampered by compliance with Government Guidelines.
Great pub atmosphere feel recommend
Amazing first day back with the pub open! Brilliant service and staff coping well with a busy atmosphere and sticking to guidelines. All our Sunday roasts were thoroughly enjoyed - Would definitely recommend
Superb meal and service, great night
Excellent all round
Great place and great food. Nice staff. I’m local and it’s one my favs.
Wonderful meal and the service was lovely
Always great food and service, just a shame all the oysters were gone by the time we ordered, nonetheless a perfect evening
Great evening with great food, drink and service
Amazing food, cute atmosphere, very attentive and lovely staff. Will definitely be returning!
The food was great but service was extremely slow once we had placed our order. It must have taken at least 45 minutes for out starters to appear. It didn't ruin our evening as we were not in a hurry and were happily chatting but I git the impression our order had been mislaid somehow, as a larger group that arrived after us received their main courses (they didn't order starters) before we received our starters.
Based on a recommendation we visited for Sunday lunch and weren’t disappointed. The roast dinners were excellent, good size servings with freshly cooked vegetables the meal was delicious. Glad we booked, will be back next time we are in the area !
