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.

A little gem of a place with a very warm and friendly welcome and service. A very small working space however they do their best to fit you in with a smile and a ‘ello darling’. Great value for money on food and drinks and...cater everyone’s needs and wants from vegan options to sugar free cold & hot drinks. Finally this is the best place in the surrounding areas for a good old English breakfast served with a free hot drink with it what more could you want.More

We had the most fabulous 90th Birthday party for my Dad at Sweet Tea. Louise was very accommodating from the point of booking to the very minute we left and nothing was too much trouble - directions and parking to decorations - in such a...personable and friendly manner. The food, service and comfortable, intimate atmosphere was great for the 15 of us get together, as close local family, for a private afternoon tea. Not only was there a super spread of home made sandwiches, scones and cake, but also additional teas and coffees and a Vegan requirement specifically catered for. (Picture taken after enjoying all the lovely food!) Dad was so very happy "I wasn't expecting all of this!" Thank you, Thank you, Thank you to all at Sweet Tea!More

An asset to the community and run by a super group of ladies. Nice outdoor space with tables and umbrellas and comfortable inside. Nice selection of light meals, cakes and super beverages. Well done ladies, a credit to the village 👍

We found this lovely place by chance while passing the Sawston. Although my English is not very good, ladies were patient enough to make order. All three were very kind. Latte was superb and Gluten free Brownie was excellent too. We were very pleased by...the whole service and atmosphere there. Many thanks from Slovakia. :)More

I live in Spain and due to COVID restrictions was unable to get back to the UK to celebrate Mother’s Day with my Mum. I ordered a Mother’s Day Afternoon Tea from Sweet Tea to be delivered to her. She was absolutely thrilled with it...- she said it was so fresh and absolutely delicious! The prompt replies to my messages and service they gave was second to none. I can’t thank them enough for making a difficult day very special.More
