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.

Simply the best - a cosy, spotlessly clean, warm and welcoming bistro. Claire and Adam make a fantastic team. The welcome is so warm and genuine, attention to detail is spot on, and of course, the food is to die for! Exquisite cuisine. As a...rule, we never have 3 courses, but the menu is so lovely and varied, that we went the whole hog, and had starter, main, dessert - and fudge and brandy snaps! Everything was excellent, but can especially recommend the cheese souffle (the stuff of dreams!) and the duck my husband had was the best he has ever tasted. Quite simply perfection from start to finish, we didn't want the evening to end. Thank you Claire and Adam, we'll be back.More

Excellent restaurant in the beautiful village of Thornton-le-Dale. Staff very attentive and food outstanding. Our table looked out on to a beautiful garden. No wonder this little gem is booked for weeks ahead. We'll definitely be returning.

What a lovely restaurant. The owner and waitress were so welcoming and friendly. We’d found this by accident and following reviews decided to give it a try. So glad we did. Our meal was excellent for start to finish. All aspects cooked to perfection and...piping hot which is something I appreciate. Huge compliments to the chef Varied menu so something for every taste. Very reasonably priced for the quality of food and service and environment If we are ever back in the area we will definitely come again.More

Simply stunning food. We visited while staying in Thornton le Dale on holiday and we were very lucky to get a table. All the food we had was beautifully cooked and presented. There’s a lovely atmosphere in the restaurant which must be a source of...pride for its owners. A very rare gem, go there if you’re in the area!More

What a fabulous little restaurant. So pleased we read the reviews here on TripAdvisor! We weren’t disappointed, a lovely meal in a very homely environment. Staff were courteous and made us feel welcome and relaxed. All the food was delicious and when my coffee came,...we were all treated to fudge and brandy snaps. We will definitely return when we are next in Yorkshire.More

An excellent bistro, service and food superb. It was my wife's birthday, a simple touch of a card and decorations on the table enhanced our very enjoyable evening.

This was our third visit to the Brandysnap bistro and it did not disappoint! Adam and Claire are fabulous hosts and the lovely waitress (sorry we didn’t catch your name) is fantastic! As soon as you walk through the door you are greeted warmly by...Adam and he takes the time to have a chat with you while you browse the menu and have a drink in the bar area. The menu is always fantastic and I always struggle to decide what I want (all delicious)! The food, as always, was out of this world! The lamb is to die for!! Myself and my dad had vegetables with our dishes and did not manage to finish all of it. When Adam came to clear the plates he remembered that we had mentioned our dog is on a strict diet currently and is eating veg as a snack. He asked if we would like to take the veg home for Nell the dog which was such a lovely touch! 10/10 as always and cannot wait to return to this lovely little bistro. I’ll be dreaming of the cheese soufflé until then! Thank you!More

Dined at the Brandysnap Bistro last night for the first time and it will definitely not be the last time! What a wonderful discovery; a warm & welcoming host greeted us on arrival to this small but intimate bistro with a lovely ambience. The food...was beyond perfect and so beautifully cooked and presented. We were very happy with our choices from the lovely and varied menu. We enjoyed everything about the place and have already made two future bookings. The only downside is that the Bistro is fully booked so far in advance but that is what happens when everything is so very very good.More

We are new to the village and are so lucky to have this lovely restaurant on our doorstep. Our first visit this week is definitely the first of many. Adam is an excellent host and Claire is an expert chef. The atmosphere is welcoming and...intimate. It feels so comfortable, it was hard to leave at the end of the evening. It was a birthday celebration and my husband was thrilled to find a lovely birthday card waiting for him when we sat at our table. The soufflé starter was beautiful. We had the beef and lamb main courses which were sublime. Vegetables were perfectly cooked and the sauces so rich and tasty. I really shouldn't have had a sweet but couldn't resist! The tipsy brandy snap was off the scale and I polished it all off!! We can't wait to return to sample more of the menu. We'll book early and advise everyone to do the same. Brandy Snap is one not to be missed.More

I doubt it but if you ring the bistro they would probably arrange some kind of credit note availability that you could give as a gift . The owners of the Bistro are very nice helpful people .
