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.

Terrific little cafe in church street, Ledbury. No free tables outside however we did manage to secure a table indoors. The weather was beautiful hence the restaurant being busy. Staff all very pleasant on our visit. The food was utterly scrumptious and the coffee delicious...too. Very clean toilet facilities upstairs also. Nice that it’s dog friendly too, which was a blessing when we visited.More

We were lucky enough to get a table on Friday and Saturday despite the cafe being very busy - and despite having to wait for a table it was well worth it. Without doubt the best place to eat in Ledbury ! The red pepper...soup was divine. The Scones with clotted cream were delicious as was the bara brith and the vegan meze… all beautifully presented and outstanding value. The staff were also very attentive and friendly - gold stars to everyone ( but especially George) for making leisurely lunches the highlight of our stay.More

A lovely location in this historic town. The service was excellent and the cream tea we had was one of the best we've had. Highly recommended.

This is a fantastic place to eat. Lovely outside area but great inside on cooler day. The food tasty, the fish dish is outstanding.

Vist yesterday with a friend for coffee and cake. When asked, the waitress recommended the chocolate fudge cake as it was her favourite. So I had and it was stunning. Friend had the treacle tart which she raved about. Gorgeous setting and outside areas lovely...in the afternoon sun. Dog friendly. Very clean. The service was top notch and all the staff we interacted with were impeccable.More

Really an excellent experience. Eggs Benedict (although they weren't called that!!) were first class. Friendly, efficient, good value, good cooking!

We visited yesterday afternoon and spent a lovely hour or so in the Malthouse. The staff were so welcoming and friendly and chatted to us every time they passed. We had tea and cake and there were three different options for gluten and dairy free...cakes - I've never had so many options as a person who can have neither wheat or milk!! The loose leaf tea is delivered in lovely teapots and was very tasty. The kids had huuugge hot chocolates with plenty of cream and marshmallows. Such a cosy place and a lovely place for a few games of cards while we drank our tea and ate cakes! Thank you 🥰More

We had the open sandwich with ham, poached egg & Hollandaise, delicious. Finished off with lovely homemade cakes. Luckily, we had booked a table as it can be extremely busy as it is a popular place. Friendly staff. Dog friendly.

Recommended by a local shopkeeper. What a find. Full when we arrived but we were able to reserve a table for 45 minutes later. Worth making the reservation as the food was fabulous, set menu and blackboard specials. We had the pea and courgette fritters...with a salad and mint yogurt garnish from the specials, absolutely delicious. Wonderful selection of cakes too. Beautiful setting in the courtyard which is covered and has heaters and blankets too. Seating inside too. Definitely worth finding and if possible reserve a table. Staff excellent too.More

Absolutely superb cafe! Great ambiance, friendly staff, lovely food and great service. We had smoked haddock chowder which was wonderful and the home made cakes were second to none, thank you for a lovely time. We Would thoroughly recommend, but a tip book a table...it is very popular.More

The service was abysmal. Despite arriving to find several empty tables, we were told it was fully booked, even though some tables lacked reserved signs. This experience was solely for coffee, yet still disappointing. I wouldn't recommend it.More
