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.

Lovely breakfast with an extensive choice of eggs Benedict. Staff were very friendly. Muffin was slightly over done, but overall a great breakfast!

Bit strange on arrival as had to knock and wait to be let in. However after that was made welcome, and we appeared to be the only ones having lunch. Had mushroom and noodles and chicken topped with cheese and bacon. Food was freshly prepared...and tasty. Atmosphere was good and staff friendly and helpfulMore

Absolutely fabulous. Food delicious, service first class and excellent value. Our first visit and definitely not our last. Brightened up a very dull morning in Hastings.

Great decor, spotless place, delicious food. The menu is diverse and lots of choice for breakfast which is great. Amazing service, the gentleman who served me was exceptional. Lots of little details like a biscuit with tea, a sweet with the bill. Really good value,...highly recommend.More

The Cookhouse Cafe is a great discovery! The service is impeccable, the food is excellent and the ambience very good with fascinating "quirky" decor. Well worth visiting - and returning!

Fantastic little cafe, food and service are excellent & beautiful quirky details in decor that make the visit worthwhile for the experience. Friendly owners, very tasty coffee & breakfasts, all your usual favourites and some exciting additions on the menu we will definitely be back...to try in the future. Great value and good portions, we were very pleased as it was delicious. Warm & cosy atmosphere, interesting steam punk vibe in the decor and was delighted to hear the things you see on the wall the owners have made themselves, so clever! Really can't wait to visit again, well worth the trip!!More

Popped in here as it was suggested by the place we were staying. The hosts couldn’t have been more friendly if they tried and the food?! That was amazing! I loved the ‘sushi’ take on eggs royale. It was definitely the best I’ve ever tasted...and only wish that was back in Southampton. The eggs were poached to perfection and the horseradish and pickled ginger complimented it amazingly.More
