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.

Our first impression was the prompt attention we received at the door. Service was good and food ok. Cleanliness left a lot to be desired. Dirty tables, dirty menus and stained cutlery and Crockery. Will wait for change of ownership to see if things improve....Overall, a nice meeting place for brunch.More

What happened to this place? It used to be so good. The service was shocking. I ordered a macchiato and what I got looked more like half a cup of latte. When I asked the Barista to make it the traditional Italian way (not how...the big chain coffee shops serve it) her demeanour was so sour and unpleasant. She brought it to our table, more or less threw it down and stormed off without a word. The food wasn't up to their usual standards either. Poached eggs were over cooked (no runny yolk) and the whole plate was dry; there was hardly any hollandaise sauce or dressing. By this point there was absolutely no point complaining due to how the staff had made us feel. We shall not be returning anytime soon - not until they get these issues addressed. Shame because it used to be absolutely bang on for food and service.More

What a little Gem of a place! Food was delicious and the staff were so friendly! Husband had Eggs Under the Sea and I had Eggs in the Woods. Totally Scrumptious.

We had a great evening, buzzing atmosphere and the food was wonderful. The portions are large so think before you order too much. We will definitely be going again!

We have always had a great experience at the CC which is why we decided to go here again for a special anniversary. Tonight we were very disappointed. The menu had changed and was very limited - especially for vegetarians and there were no 'specials....Unfortunately we will not be visiting again.More

We read about this place in our Extra Mile book. We arrived around 10.30am, and it was heaving. We were asked if we minded sharing a table - this is something I would encourage more for elderly singles, and encourage customers to chat if sharing...tables. (How about a conversation menu). Not all meals were available, but staff knowledgeable and recommended other dishes, or reduced portion size and price. Food was nice, but a little on pricey side - but this could just be the region. Another Extra Mile cafe ticked off. Nice place.More

Very busy cafe with sticky tables. Unable to provide a simple sandwich although they offer sourdough bread and toast. Nothing to tempt one to return. Free car park just round the corner. Club for hire as a party venue.

Visited with a friend hoping to eat , at 8.30pm but despite advertising that they served food up until 9pm they had stopped serving early because they having a reshuffle as new management are taking over. Not all drinks available. I am sure the food...would have been good .More

Just a coffee today but have eaten in the past and the food it nice and has a buzz about the place. However, they must address the problem with the overwhelming smell from the open kitchen. The whole place smells like a greasy spoon cafe....The last time I was there with 4 friends and sat near the kitchen. We didn't stay around long. This time I was further away but the whole place smelt of cooking oil and garlic, it actually made my eyes water even though I opened the window next to me. It lingered in my hair and clothes for the rest of the day. Such a shame, I won't be going back.More

The food is fabulous, if you want a cheapy breakfast/brunch place this is not for you. What's the saying? "you get what you pay for". Very good quality and the staff are wonderful.

This is a first choice brunch spot for me and my boyfriend. The service, food and the atmosphere at the Cricklade Club is unmatched. The prices are also very reasonable with the quality of food. Our recommendations are the muesli, pancakes and the toast with...smashed avo and poached egg on top. Will always recommend!!!More

Great buzzing venue. Really good young waiter, both welcoming and efficient. Nice wine and good food.Menu could have benefitted with a main course salad option, which I don't think would stretch the tight kitchen operation.

I took a group of friends here for dinner this evening after having read the good reviews about the quality of the food and the wide choice of gins. First impressions. Nice modern vibe . Quirky . Pleasant and comfortable. Unfortunately no one to meet and greet and show us to our table. We then realised we had to go the bar for everything. Unfortunately only one person behind the bar and it was busy. Having read the gin menu we made our choices only to be told that some were not available or that they did not have the right mixers.... it is Saturday evening!!! Next we chose our food to be told again that several of our choices were not available ... the comment was “ it is the end of the weekend”. ??? When the food arrived it was beautifully presented and delicious. Our next issue was regarding a dog walking freely around the restaurant... I have no issues with dogs being allowed in but please keep them under control and on a lead . Also if you are serving food please do not allow your staff to pet the dog and then carry on without washing their hands. The kids running the place are very pleasant but there did not appear to be anyone in overall charge . All in all a strange mix of negative and positive feelings about our evening.... not sure we will rush to return except maybe for a morning coffee
