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.

Had afternoon tea with four friends today and it was excellent both for taste and value. Certainly stands alongside The Swan at Southwold and the Assembly House in Norwich

Found Margo’s on Tripadvisor while in the area. Quite a big place on a residential street not far from the beach. I was surprised to find quite a nice buzz even on a weekday lunchtime in January. Service friendly and helpful. Nice fairly simple menu....More

Went for lunch and was not disappointed. Very friendly staff and a good selection of food with plenty healthy options that were all reasonably priced. Soup of the day was fab!

Very impressed with the sandwiches - the bread was delicious and it was really good of them to swap the coleslaw for a bean salad when I told them I was vegan! Only improvement would be if the staff were a little more personable.
