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.

Wow - the staff were the nicest people! Me and my partner were passing through, and stopped off for lunch. We never expected such great food! The empire biscuit is the best desert I’ve ever had in my life. What a great experience.

Had a lovely visit to the coffee kiln today. The new owner is lovely and the food we had was delicious. I had read a few reviews that were pretty awful but thought I would see for myself. It looks like these reviews have been...left by friends of the previous tenant, as they name them. My experience is that the new owner bakes everything fresh and nothing is to much hassle for her. Can't wait to return.More

Met up with a friend and we found this amazing cafe. Food was beautiful, the home baking was to die for! The lovely lady Owner Sheena was so welcoming and friendly and we can’t wait to come back! I’ll definitely be a regular, and my...two teenage daughters are dying to try it too with their friends. Thank you again for the lovely food, great coffee and welcoming atmosphereMore

Absolutely delicious food. Cakes to die for. Scones still warm as fresh out the oven. Never wanted it to end. Highly recommend. Staff were super friendly and prices were very reasonable. Will definitely visit again.

I came here to pass the time as an appointment was late, the staff were lovely. But the food was awful. It’s like it was taken on by someone with absolutely no experience at all! Had a roll on bacon and the roll was so...dry with cheap butter. Cheap teabags. Don’t know if it’s a supplier issue or if they shop via supermarkets and that’s the problem. Because it definitely doesn’t taste like supplier quality food. The menu is simply typed up..No cafe setting menu. It’s like eating in a place that’s opened on a whim…Sheena is lovely and so are staff but it’s not uptoo standard of Jillian and Neil I think her husband was called. Mixed reviews about the cakes as fifteen was lovely but the wagon wheel slice was wrapped in a napkin so couldn’t even eat it. Shortbread a little dry (Went through college in my 20/30s as a baker!) and it’s no where near even National qualification level never mind cafe level. Lovely people just not in the right game. Also always empty I like atmosphere in cafes.More

I popped in briefly one morning last week. Lovely bright cafe, pleasant surrounding (including craft shop items) and it was nice and clean. My cappuccino was good and the rocky road traybake was brilliant. Worth trying for coffee and home baking, rolls to take away...or a light lunch.More

Visited today, first time under new management. Very small menu, that’s fine, but poor quality. Toastie was wet, only served with a few crisps and minuscule tub of coleslaw so poor presentation. Milk jug had two chips. Need to up the game if locals are...required to support this business. The saving grace was the biscoff cake which was awesome.More
