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.

Called in for a quick bite to eat on a wet and windy lunchtime. The smoked salmon and cream cheese sandwich was delicious, generously filled with good quality salmon, and served with an interesting combination of side salad. Washed down with a pot of tea....Friendly and efficient service. I sat on the covered and heated outside terrace which is a lovely option if you like to eat al-fresco Good value for money, not cheap but fairly priced for what is on offerMore

The food is lovely at this cafe. We all enjoyed our breakfasts and we especially liked the delicious vegetarian sausages. The staff can’t do enough for you. I can highly recommend this cafe for food and drink. If you need to park there is a...pay and display right outside.More

Disappointing. Cake inedible and coffee tepid. Not the end of the world but it’s £8 I will never see again. Weird vibe there too.

A very good little cafe which I highly recommend. Good menu choice, very attentive staff, followed by excellent food delivered surprisingly fast. In laws had a sea food platter, which was excellent by all accounts. I had the calimari, fresh and tasty and my wife...had a salad of some sorts serves on a flat bread. Again very tasty I was told. So overall a very good restaurant, and a big well done by all the staff, well deserved!More

Popped in for morning coffee and cake whilst visiting the area. Had the best flat white I’d had in a long time and the freshest cakes. Very good value, particularly the cakes which were nice big slices. Lovely friendly staff all very efficient and helpful.

I had a great vegan plate at breakfast. The sausages were flavorful and great texture. The toast was warm and soft with generous creamy butter. There were lots more on the plate including beans, tomatoes, mushrooms, hash browns. The chai latte was delightful.

We shared a lovely seafood platter. Really fresh & tasty. Thick slices of salmon, fresh prawns & crab with a lovely couscous salad. The service was amazing, so friendly & welcoming. Our dog Mable was completely spoilt with biscuits & fuss. Would recommend.

We took our friends here for an afternoon cup of tea and a cake, having found this café whilst visiting with relatives. On our first visit, we had sandwiches which were superb and extremely tasty, hence the reason we decided to take her friends here,...because they were visiting us. Cannot recommend this café highly enough. The sandwiches are fresh with superb salads on the side, and the cakes are all made freshly and are extremely tasty. The service is always extremely friendly, and quick! This is a true gem in. Salubrious and one not to miss out on.More

We ordered Hoisin beef on flat bread The flat bread must have been stale As it was cooked and not burnt but was rock hard and we couldn’t get a knife through it to cut it .it was so brittle it shot across the cafe...We asked discreetly a member of staff to come over to our table and mentioned the problem ..to be asked -“would we like a steak knife to cut the bread!! “ We told her that was not acceptable -she took the food away to get another meal prepared The second meal came out ..with soft flat bread -that was not stale however we were given the cold meat contents to share between us on the next so call called fresh meal -which was cold A staff member asked us if the second meal was ok -we stated the above We went to pay and were given the two drinks that we ordered free ..however I would like to state that there was nothing wrong with the drinks ! We were told to pay full price for the both meals each No sorry or mention of the meal being cold and unsatisfactory I asked if the chef had been changed as we have been here many times before -she stated that he has not left . So very dissatisfied and disappointed that no acknowledgment was made and tht we were expected to pay for a substandard meal We would rather have have full price for the perfect dink and be told we would have a discount t on the meal -so basically they dismissed the problem 😡More
