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.

Geocentre is a misnomer. The displays on geology are minimal. with a couple of maps and a derisory few rocks. If you go there thinking you are going to find anything meaningful about the local geology then forget it. This is really just a bog-standard cafe in relatively nice local surroundings. In saying that there were no customers in the cafe but the car park was full, so parking is a pain. Calling it the Geocentre is misleading. Call it wat it is- e.g. 'The Geocentre Cafe' and be up front about the sparsity of information.

A afternoon out walking on the Malvern Hills, decided to stop off at our usual pit stop for some light refreshment. Unfortunately on this occasion not the usual level of service, accepting the current position and the fact that it may have been a busy day... it's no excuse for poor customer service. Service with a smile NOT!

Parted with £13.20 for two T's and two rounds of sani's, wow! It must have been for the tub of butter on them.

We sat outside, litter bins over flowing and the dog's water normally a nice touch looked disgusting...

Maybe just an off day....

Good quality snacks. Very convenient location. Can be a bit slow when busy or a group arrives. Overall well worth a visit.

Should start by saying we didn’t eat here but came specifically to hire their local walking trail guidebooks. They were brilliant, 2 excellent varied and family friendly walks covering the local countryside and hills. Service very friendly. Seems like a great place to eat too considering how busy it was when we returned the maps later on!

Arrived on a Wednesday early but the cafe was closed. The have a car charging point which I plugged into and went for a walk. Left my number in the car in case it was a problem. Had a call from a lady who wanted me to remove my car so I walked back to pick up the car. I don't think the centre manager was overly impressed with me using the charger, which you could argue was a bit cheeky. As a driver of a Electric only vehicle and the fact this is a technology centre with a slant toward the ecology, I wrongly assumed I would be OK to charge, it is a pity I wasn't able to reciprocate with a coffee although the manager was dubious to this (I actually really did fancy a coffee). Anyway, just a note of thanks for the charge I did get, I apologise for parking like a bit of a idiot and sorry I misunderstood the facility. Could I ask on behalf of other EV drivers, that you turn off the charger if you don't want us to use it. No one like an altercation, regardless how calm and friendly is was.

I look forward to coming back and enjoying some carrot cake! I have put a not on ZapMap to warn other drivers to the policy.

We came upon this facility quite by accident. We had spent a delightful morning walking The Malvern Hills, and weary, and in need of some refreshments, we took to the car and drove along to see what we could find.
We hadn't gone far when we saw the sign for this place. From the outside it looks a little uninviting, but by peering through a small window I could see cakes and tea pots, and so in we went.
It's an interesting centre, well equipped to the needs of walkers, with lots of information on large coloured wall maps, and the most delightful video wall which projects some amazing local photographs.
I'm not sure of the ownership of this facility, but I imagine it's run and staffed by a local charity, and it clearly offers brilliant opportunities to young people with learning difficulties. But what a cheerful and wonderfully friendly bunch they are.
The food was excellent. delicious home made soup, lovely sandwiches and excellent cake.
Worth a visit, and worthy of your support for any number of reasons.
Give it a try.

Thank you for your lovely review and comments about our Centre. Indeed, Cafe H2O within the GeoCentre is operated by team Jamboree, a co-operative of adult members each of whom have a learning disability. They really enjoy the experience of preparing and serving refreshments, and so they will be delighted to read your kind review.

We visited because we had a tramper mobility scooter booked to collect and had a wonderful walk up to the Beacon is extremely cold temperatures so were glad the cafe was there on our return with hot Leek and Potato Soup. Lovely cafe with good healthy food, would have liked to buy a postcard or two but there didn't appear to be any although lots of info on guide books and local geology which was interesting. Will definitely return in the summer when its warmer

Thank you for visiting and we're pleased you enjoyed the use of the Tramper and that you were able to warm up with our 'homemade' soup on your return. We look forward to welcoming you back later in the summer!

Coffee snacks or light lunches in a really interesting and informative environment and of course views of the hills and across to the Black mountains and Wales.
