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.

My favourite spot to go for food, whether it be breakfast, lunch or dinner. Such a beautiful location, and the ambience fits this. They have a help yourself water station which is a lovely touch. The staff are so friendly and helpful. I had the...soup of the day, which was a tomato and red pepper soup. It was delicious!! The bread to go with it was amazing as well, as well as the sweet potato fries I had on the side. Was a very reasonable price as well, as I find everything in the lounge to be. Would definitely recommend to anyone!More

Very disappointed with the less interesting, more frozen packet type, food here nowadays. It arrived lukewarm at best and the burger was very overcooked. Initially staff weren’t particularly friendly but some were better later. When it began the quality and choice were so much better....The coleslaw was the best thing - it was good!More

Hi, Thanks for your feedback

Reviewed 26 October 2023

My partner and I regularly visit Toro Lounge and for many years have enjoyed the Tapas. Last night’s visit unfortunately was filled with disappointment. We ordered via the app from the table (so no service, yet) however we were prompted to leave a tip before...we even had a drink. Not appropriate. Why ask for a tip before you start serving? You tip for the service received. The wine glasses were heavily watermarked. Somewhat off putting. The food arrived (7 Tapas dishes were order). No separate plates were provided for our food. We had to eat from the Tapas dishes. Not ideal. All Tapas plates were cold and the food was lukewarm, and two of the dishes were immediately sent back because they were cold. By the time we received the replacements our meal had finished and the food was still lukewarm! Not once were we asked if everything was ok, something we observed with other customers dining last night too. Really disappointed.More

Despite having had a water leak in the kitchen overnight the chef and staff did a brilliant job and we had a fantastic lounge breakfast. You'd never have known there had been a problem. Thanks for a delicious breakfast ☺️

This is a fantastic place. We went in at about 5.00, so it was fairly quiet and got served very quickly. The place itself is wonderfully quirky in terms of decor and completely charming, and the staff were extremely friendly and welcoming. We had the...Lounge all-day breakfast. Wow! It was absolutely delicious and very generous in portion size. I can't find a single thing to criticise about our visit. Unfortunately we are seldom in Cirencester but if we go there again we will go to Torro Lounge without any hesitation. Thank you!More

Tiny portions for the most expensive big breakfast. Milkshake wasnt a milkshake - like milk with sugar added. We told the staff, received apology , but no remedy or refund offered - no idea about hospitality or customer service. Tables and chairs not cleaned since...the night before. Wont go again. Not worth it nothing special. Trading off what used to be great.More
