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.

We randomly stopped at this place, after seeing the signs for it while driving out of Looe... and we are so glad we did! We had a mix of breakfast sandwiches, a smashed burger and pancakes! All of the food was awesome, great quality! Its...not fast food, its cooked to order which is great. The lovely couple who own the place were so chilled, and even let my lad wash after making a mess with the maple syrup! If you are in Looe, you have to try this, excellent value for money, for really quality food!! Support this awesome business!More

Visited on a Saturday evening with our children. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our burgers, best we’ve had locally for sure. Our two sons had a hot dog meal each (adults meal) which they loved, the option of onions was available but they didn’t...chose this. Our daughter had the kids chicken nugget meal and this was a great portion and great value, she loved it! Will definitely be back.More

I can honestly say this is the best fish and chip meal I've had in along time. The fish was very fresh, lightly battered and fried to be crispy but not overly done. The chips and mushy peas were good too. We'll definitely be back...to try the burgersMore

We had the hulk burgers last night, with extra onion rings and mushrooms. It was all so delicious. I like that the van is totally visible, so we can see them cooking etc. nothing is hidden. Everything is made fresh. The burgers are also fresh...and not some frozen rubbish. I have never had such a delicious burger. It was fresh, delicious, hot, the chips were perfectly cooked and lovely with the skins on. Even the boxes and the foil the food is in, is quality. It keeps the food really hot and doesn’t break easily. We are on holiday at the camp site but also live fairly locally, so I know we will be coming back for more even when back home.More
