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.

Visited for Sunday breakfast and wasn’t disappointed. Beautifully clean, very pleasant waitress showed us to our table. Like being back in 1950’s so pleasant. Food excellent, freshly cooked and plenty of it. Great selection of drinks. Overall a very enjoyable experience, looking forward to returning...maybe for lunch as the cakes looked amazing!!More

I had a quick lunch at the Galley Cafe yesterday - just a sausage roll and coffee - but what a sausage roll! Large, tasty and warming. People around me all seemed to be enjoying the cafe's lunchtime specials. Great venue, good atmosphere.

The most beautiful, tasty, organic 'at desk' takeaway bacon & egg sandwiches (some toasted) just eaten at Steel Cross! We will definitely be back for more, thanks Alex.

The Community Cafe is the best place for a home cooked lunch or just coffee and sandwiches or cake in Crowborough! Excellent value and Jos cheese scones and cakes are delicious!

Yummy food, friendly staff, a great place to take children too. As they provide books, colouring books and pencils. Much more friendly than the last lot who owned this cafe!

I have heard about many changes in the cafe in recent months, as a result I thought I would give it a try again one lunchtime as I was in the area and hungry, I can say that the pricing is very fair and the...portions are generous to say the least, if your after good home cooked style food and enjoy a good pud then you really have to pop in to this hidden gem of a cafe. It looks to have a change chef behind the counter who is very welcoming and knows what good food is or at least what I consider that to be, no packet food or warmed up rubbish. I was also very surprised to see that this place has meeting rooms available for booking.More

A group of 30-odd locals were due to have a pre-booked lunch here on Tuesday afternoon. However, this did not take place owing to the chef being taken ill suddenly. We can all appreciate that these things happen occasionally. However, no-one contacted our group and...let us know. We only found out because the lady who made the bookings popped in to the cafe to advise them of a last minute change, and was told that our lunch was not prepared. It is quite unbelievable that no-one actually had the presence of mind to make a simple phone call and thus avoid upsetting 30 potential customers. After finding out the lunch was cancelled, we actually went to the cafe to complain in person. We queued up to speak to whomever was in charge, but gave up after 15 minutes, as the kitchen staff were clearly struggling to make sandwiches for another sizeable group of people. You'd think that sandwiches would be less of a challenge than a hot meal, and clearly the staff must have thought so too, as they were attempting to cater for that group, but it was like watching the keystone cops albeit in slow-motion. The people queuing for their sandwiches were muttering about how long it was taking, and how they couldn't understand why their sandwiches (apparently also pre-booked) weren't ready. Perhaps the food and service are great under normal circumstances. We'll never know. Owing to the dismal lack of communication, we won't be booking any lunches there anytime soon.More

Thirty members of a Crowborough club had organised a lunch for today. The lady organising the lunch had taken in our choice of food from their menu last Friday as requested. Purely by chance she visited the café this morning and was told that the...chef was off ill and a temporary chef was standing in. She was then told that this chef did not have a note of our orders and that they did not have the supplies to make the appropriate meals we had requested. The lady was then told they had some quiches and chilli available but no desserts. The proprietors had made no attempt to contact the lady in question to explain the situation despite the fact they had both her home and mobile numbers. After consulting those due to attend, it was agreed to decline to accept this meagre repast and that we would not consider dining there in the future. This shambles left thirty people, who were looking forward to having a nice lunch with their friends, disappointed and inconvenienced, due entirely to the proprietors total incompetence. We cannot rate the café for food, service or value for the obvious reasons and we will certainly not be recommending it to anybody else.More
