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.

Caffeine and Machine the hill I first discovered this establishment on YouTube a couple of years ago from a American automotive photographer Larry Chan, it looked amazing and I was impressed with the scenery and the way it represented car culture in the uk in...such a positive light. Few years later 2023 my wife booked my Father’s Day lunch there and I was hooked, the staff were the most pleasant people you could ever interacted with, and the experience was one of a kind. The restaurant was well organised and the staff were friendly and pleasant. I personally loved the automotive art displayed around. The food is why I keep returning making the journey from Birmingham because the smash burger is awesome. This place is a God send for car enthusiasts, I love the ethos of the owner, bringing cars and people from all backgrounds and cultures who don’t judge just appreciate everything that makes up the car community, I recommend you visit, you’ll enjoy the experience. Special regards to Carl and Lynn for making me and my friends welcome every time we flood the car park with Hyundai N performance cars. Des form BirminghamMore

Great for friendly petrolheads, with staff and fellow customers relaxed and welcoming. It was our first time here and Bobby welcomed us in, and asked how our experience was when we were leaving - his attitude is what any person in a customer facing position...should have. Absolutely brilliant - thanks Bobby. Food great, but it is on the expensive side - but I guess that applies to anywhere like this, in these times. So, great experience, we’ll be back and thoroughly recommend that you go, too!More

Just came for a quick break of my road trip, had a pint of their own brand lager and a bowl of chips. Friendly and effecient service, and I enjoyed my pint and chips. Loved the ambience. Would definitely come again if I lived locally.

Ordered a ‘Brie and Bacon’ burger from the main restaurant and the picture says it all. Burger was dry and hard with one tiny slice of Brie and Bacon. Very overpriced for embarrassing quality. Wouldn’t ever eat here again.

Been here a few times over the years and love the varied types of cars from all eras. Excellent concept. Always thought food and service good. Latest visit had a large table in the tee pee outside. For lunch. Two heaters turned on one promptly...ran out of fuel. Food quite cold when it arrived and no one came out to us from the waiting staff after that. Cleared our tables then went back into the main restaurant to order desert. We then went back into the main restaurant to bring out our own deserts to the tables. Not sure why service is non existent. Hope things improve.More

We arrived late after they had officially closed to stay the night. After emailing ahead they kept us food which we preordered. They were very friendly and the rooms were very clean and modern, along with the en-suite. Thank you 😎

Been here a free times and it seems to be declining, obviously problems in the kitchen. Food took 50 minutes to arrive and was very poor, cold element which should have been warm and the restaurant looked very grubby with uncleared tables.

We attended the Halloween part III event last night. It was advertised as a children's event (an event for our "youngest guests") and promised an evening of Day of the Dead themed Halloween celebrations including face painters and masks plus an opportunity to view the...Mexican F1. Our small children very excited. Tickets sold for £10 per person so £60 in total. Arrived to carnage in car park. Very dangerous for kids to get from car park to main tent/building in dark. Other than a few left over decorations from the previous night's events, no children's activities at all other than a couple of colouring pencils and a couple of print off A4 pages on a slatted wooden bench which another family had occupied. No face painters, no sweets, no masks, nothing. We asked a member of staff who told us there were kids activities in the shop but there was nothing. Food extortionate and a massively long wait for it so we didn't bother. Drinks alone took 35 mins from ordering to receiving them. Despite screens in large tent, only one was turned on and that was in the left hand corner where there were no tables so couldn't even seen build up to F1. No idea how they justified the ticket cost. Every family and child there looked bored and we gave up and left by 6.30pm. Suggest they issue an apology to all children and families that attended immediately.More

Go here a few times a year and I must say as a family the place is loved by us all. Definitely disabled friendly as son in a power chair. Have previously stayed over. All staff are friendly and welcoming as is the owner. Yes...you have to book at weekends and special events but it ads to the fact this is super popular and you never know who or what might be here so it guarantees you entry. Fantastic atmosphere and environment for all the family.More

I agree with the other reviewer so it is best to give the bar a quick call to see if there is any car meets on.
