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 family, grandma, grandad, my wife and our 2 sons 10 and 16 went to the coffee on the square for afternoon tea!! Knowing that grandma (a tea cake connoisseur) and our 10 year old who really won’t deviate from his known food shortlist -...we knew the task ahead of us!! To say it was a hit would be an understatement - grandma ‘the best tea cake I have ever had’ and our son now has added Victoria sponge to his exacting repertoire…. The food, service, cleanliness and location were first class… (so much so we returned for a scrumptious breakfast (strongly recommend the full English with poached eggs)). A lovely find and a rare gem… strongly recommend!!More

We were staying in the village for a holiday and found this beautiful place as we explored the area. We had the best cream tea in Devon, having been disappointed elsewhere and then returned again for lunch and brunch before we went home, we even...took delicious scones home! Everything is freshly prepared and they certainly deliver on their promise of local and authentic.More

We ate here for lunch on a Friday with a friend in August 2022. We had the ploughmans, bacon/brie/cranberry panini and a child's cheese sandwich. They were all fine, but relatively expensive and small pieces of cheese.

Very friendly staff, excellent food and a very clean environment. The cream teas are amazing as the cakes and scones are all made by the ladies. The savory meals looked very good and the brunch menu was excellent - bacon cooked as requested (crispy for...my brother in law). The Coffee on the Square really is a gem in Hartland, thank you ladiesMore

We fancied a drink and a bite to eat so I asked a lady walking by....She recommended Coffee on the Square which proved to be just around the corner.

The restaurant was fairly busy when we went to eat. We ordered a cream tea and a panini. We were greeted immediately and the order was promptly taken. Unfortunately it took almost an hour for our food to arrive on our table. The food was...average, but the service was so slow that other customers were wishing each other luck that the food would arrive. Nobody checked in on us whilst we were eating and it was hard to find a staff member as they were in the kitchen for most of our visit. If you don’t mind waiting then this place is a nice little place for a bite to eat, but for us who had made afternoon plans, it was a frustrating experience.More
