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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

My friend and I stopped here on way back from Bristol airport, and so pleased we did. The service was friendly, the setting was warm & inviting (woodburner was lit) and the food was excellent! Great menu with various options (my friend is gluten intolerant)...all served with a smile. Will definitely recommend.More

We ordered some coffees and cake. The coffees were great, warm and tasted lovely. Service was good too. However the cake I had was very dry. It was lemon drizzle and this is usually a moist cake.More

Lovely accidental find, when making a pit stop in Cullompton. Excellent food (try the halloumi!), friendly service and the back room where we ate was full of character. Reasonable prices. Thoroughly recommended.

I was given a voucher for an Afternoon Tea here and my husband and I enjoyed every minute of our visit! The staff were so friendly in a relaxed yet efficient way, the food arrived having chosen our sandwiches and cake. I had the ham...sandwich and it was delicious as was the cheese and chutney. Scones were excellent and we took the cake home with us and some sandwiches so we can enjoy them later. I would really recommend trying this restaurant. The menu is varied and offers quite a lot of vegetarian options. We will definitely be going back! You made the trip feel special!More

Had lunch with the family at the window table last Saturday. The food and the service were both excellent as usual. I can thoroughly recommend the Filo Parcels. And unlike some Cafe Bars, the children’s meal was well prepared and presented too.

Give them a ring, they are friendly, however the scones are really small here, loads of jam and cream but very tight with the scone size. (bit of cream tea expert!)
