Being an avid traveller, a frequent user of many travel websites, and the Founder of Trusty Traveller, this is music to my ears. Now, I’m not at all a “kick them while they’re down” kind of person, but this was something I have wanted to write about for a long time, and pretty much the whole reason why this website was created. So I’m sorry TripAdvisor, but I just couldn’t contain myself!

Having traveled around much of the world, with friends and often alone, I have long relied on many online sites for information and advice on where to go, drink and eat. And although there are a ton of sites that are really helpful (and most importantly accurate), TripAdvisor I have found to be quite the opposite! On multiple occasions throughout my travels, I have been on my way to take part in the culinary delight and heavenly vibe described on Tripadvisor, only to find that ‘Bob from Venice Beach’ must have been high on crack when he visited or actually didn’t visit at all!

Now, this is all good and well when you’re popping off to a restaurant around the corner, but when visiting a new city for a limited amount of time, and therefore a limited amount of restaurants to try in that time, this is pretty f***ing irritating!

However, two things I did not account for was the fact that many businesses will pay for fake reviews, and that TripAdvisor is actually so unregulated that its possible to create a fake restaurant! And even more so, get that restaurant to the top spot in one of the worlds largest Cities! So if you haven’t already seen this beauty, behold, The Shed At Dulwich! Enjoy!

Now, I’m also not saying that at the Trusty Traveller we have absolutely nailed every review to every kind of persons delight or taste. But what I can promise you is that we have picked only restaurants that we truly believe won’t let you down, and have provided regulated reviews as honestly and transparently as possible!

We will even tell you what we don’t like! Why? Because as much as we want to promote good restaurants, we do what we do for you beautiful people, and that ain’t changing anytime soon! As great as it would be to bring you guys loads more listings more frequently, we believe in quality over quantity, and quite frankly, keeping ‘Bob from Venice Beach’ the f**k off our site!

So I hope you guys enjoyed the read, had a good laugh at the Video, and most of all, don’t trust everything you see online!

As I always say, Stay Trusty Folks!

Much Love!
