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.

An absolute must whilst visiting Newlyn and a return for us after our last visit two years ago. Mainly a wine shop and deli, there is also provision of a few tables and chairs to enjoy an excellent bottle of wine off the shelf for...a modest corkage. Complemented by a platter of cheeses and meats. Clearly popular with and supported by locals. Doggy friendly. Very similar to a wonderful venue we enjoy where we live in St Marychurch Torquay. 🇬🇧🇳🇿More

Loved this place, everything was perfect. The staff were lovely and also made us laugh - super friendly service! The menu was concise and thoughtfully curated, as well as delicious. Will definitely be back.

Called in for coffee and managed to get a seat. Coffee was good although tiny for the price. It became clear to us that we were sat next to the owner and I have to say that the way she spoke to her two young...members of staff was downright rude and no wonder that they looked so miserable at their work although no criticism of their service at all. The owner suddenly became friendly when clearly others of the 'London set' arrived and happy to chat with them but no warmth towards other customers and made to feel as though we were in the way. Maybe a visit to the Star inn at Porkellis would be of benefit as we visited there later the same day and they showed exactly what good service should be like!More

A stop for a coffee turned into a moment, lots of entertainment outside the window watching traffic.....but the coffee oh wow, wine is judged by length, this coffee lasted n my mouth until back in Penzance! Excellent advice about choice of bean.

For the best coffee by far in the area and exceptionally tasty sweet and savoury things to eat during the day. Lovetts is also a wine bar, craft beer spot - you can indulge in small plates of cheese/charcuterie/bread/salad/olives etc as you drink. A lovely...way to spend an evening trying a few wines by the glass. Real attention to detail with produce of the highest quality. Look forward to returning next time we are staying nearby.More

We always try and use a local cafe as we like to support local businesses. The small but clean cafe was perfect for a business coffee and some lovely cake. The team were polite and really seemed to care about what they were serving and...about the local area. We love Newlyn and would love to live in the town! Hopefully we will be back soon to try more of your lovely produce. Keep up the amazing work it will all be worth it in the end!More

We were staying in Mousehole and decided to walk to Penzance. On reaching Newlyn, it was coffee time. Lovetts was in the right place at the right time. But it was delightful. Really good coffee. What was even better was that the two girls were...lovely. We chatted to one for ages, fending questions about Australia (where we're from). Be sure to stop in if you're in the area.More

Visited here several times on our numerous trips to the area over the years. Always excellent coffee and our “go to” cafe in Newlyn, with friendly and helpful service. We decided to try their tinned sardines with sourdough toast after coming across eateries in Spain...offering menus consisting solely of different types of tinned sardines (and nothing else) and our expectations were exceeded! Absolutely delicious and no comparison with the tinned sardines in the supermarkets here. We will be back for more next time we’re in the area.More

OK, so I've not done an exhaustive search, but this is the best coffee I've had, west of the Tamar. Started my day there for a week and the flat whites were both fab and consistent. Having the barista, on day 2, remember what i...drank was a nice touch. Overhearing the public conversations between them and someone from the local roastery demonstrated the depth of their interest in pulling great shots. See you next summer!More

The evening menu was incredibly good. We had fresh Herritage tomatoes ( supplied from just up the road ) with Mozerella and st Ives bread. The gentleman managing was really kind and in control of the business, brought out foods and drinks with a smile....Really good quality wines and a picture perfect setting in the working village of Newlyn. Thank you :)More

Exceptional coffee coupled with an ever changing cast of locals and tourists in a tasteful but relaxed setting, cocktails aren't bad either, a must if you're in Newlyn.

It’s hard to decide whether I prefer to visit during the day or in the Evening. Daytime delivers exceptional artisan coffee, pastries and bites served by owner Emma and a lovely team. Evening time brings a wine bar with a great atmosphere and a wine...selection that is on par with any of the capitals top wine bars, ask Rohit for his favourite by the glass. Great cocktails and little bites too. Newlyn is a little haven and Lovetts a little gem!More

We’ve given a lot of custom to Lovetts, as local customers. Yes the coffee is good, but the cup size is tiny! Perfect for a flat white, as you expect a smaller cup. But for all else it’s a joke! We could absolutely put up...with a miniature coffee, but the staff, mostly are not at all interested in providing good customer service. Today was the last straw, we’ll definitely not be returning. The lady who served us was abrupt and downright unpleasant.More

This is the 2nd time we have been to Lovetts and and I'm now starting to think that they are a bit up their own bottoms and not very authentic. Some of what they serve maybe good quality like the wine and coffee (although I'm...starting to doubt that now) but others are just a rip off, we had the sardines and sour dough the first time under the impression we were getting a high quality little dish and being right on the harbour - fresh local fish but No, instead a tin of sardines arrived next to some sourdough slices, I thought it quite funny as not what I expected especially considering the haughtiness of the staff there. The second time we went I had a hot chocolate for £3.10 and it arrived in a very small cup and hardly tasted of chocolate at all, I thought considering this little cup it was maybe a real hot chocolate made with melted chocolate but no such luck, it wasnt even half as tasty as a costa chocolate! Have these people never travelled?! It could be a great little wine bar a cut above other places if only it was authentic about its high quality instead of just trying to be trendy.More

Enjoyed the Cortado but service was applauding I asked if they had a White Sauvignon to which the the male member of staff said arrogantly we have red yellow or blue without a smile and with a total lack of interest I have always found...wine specialists enthusiastic but not here . The whole demeanour of staff was one disinterest more interested in polishing glasses than showing off the vast array of wines. . If I am paying £3 for a coffee and looking at £20 bottles of wine I expect some interest I have had more at a road side cafe . In these days of austerity I would had hoped hospitality would be a major factor no engagement here . Being local I won’t be recommending.More
