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.

My friends and I had one of the best cream teas of my life here. The scones were fresh right out of the oven. The staff were also really friendly and didn't make us feel rushed at all even though it was closing time. This...is the place to relax and refuel after a hard day's walking!More

I was appalled by the discourteous and egregious service that I experienced at Charlie's Cafe today. I went in to buy a sourdough loaf and when I could not find any I asked a female member of staff if they had any available. I was...told, in a very dismissive and unprofessional peripatetic manner, that no loafs were available for sale. She then pointed to the sourdough loafs stacked on the trolley in the kitchen, stating that these were only available customers eating 'in'. She made no attempt to be helpful or civil. Consequently, I will not be returning. Charlie's? What a right bunch of.....More

This was ok, just ok. Stopped by for coffee and a treat. Tables rather squashed in and the weather was poor so people wanted to be inside mainly. Quite a wait for what was essentially 4 drinks and 4 ready made cake items. Scones as...per previous reviews an object of ridicule, a derisory action by whoever dreamed up the size. That kind of thinking and practice doesn't do the reputation of the business any good at all.More

We called in yesterday for a cream tea. Myself & husband laughed at the size of the scones. Never have I before seen a scone cut into a square about 4cm x4cm. This is a sure way of making money. The staff were lovely and...a good cup of tea shame about the size of the scones.More

Fantastic food and service. We stopped for brunch on a miserable March day and this place cheered us up. The toasted tea cake was coated in something divine-best I’ve ever had! My son had the waffles with syrup which were freshly made and huge-he was...in heaven. Lovely, friendly staff. We will definitely return!More

Fabulous food, ambience, and friendly service! Just had a late lunch here on a chilly day in Tintagel — the warm bacon and brie sandwich is phenomenal, with a lovely Tintagel Brewery Harbour Special premium bitter brew. Perfection!

Worth the wait for freshly prepared food in this lovely 14th century cafe. Lovely couple that run it and were even served by Charlie himself now that he is a teenager! Can't praise this lovely cafe enough and always make a point of coming here...when we are in the area and always take home some lovely cheeses and treats from their little deli..More

Enjoyed lunch with my family after walking along the coast from Boscastle. Lovely welcome with efficient and friendly service. We enjoyed mulled wine, cider, prawn sandwiches, soup, pulled pork and something with shrimps! Followed by cakes with coffee, tea and hot chocolate. We bought a...sour dough loaf to take home. All in all a very enjoyable experience. Thank you.More

A wonderful dinner last night at Charlie's from their Christmas menu. 15 friends gathered there and everyone said their meal was absolutely delicious. Turkey served with all the trimmings, succulent slow roasted pork belly with crackling, roasted monkfish- all with a great attention to detail....Reasonable prices and a friendly and warm welcome. Daniel and Rebecca have created something very special here at Charlie's- if you've never been, you are missing a treat. Thoroughly recommend!More
