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.

I had booked afternoon tea at Curiositea for myself and little girl to celebrate her 4th birthday. We were very much looking forward to this and it had been booked for some time. We attended yesterday with a very excited little birthday girl to find...that the shop was completely closed on arrival and was currently in the process of either being emptied or refurbished. I received no calls, texts or emails to advise myself of this. I was left stood at the doorstep of the shop in utter shock with a very upset child. Despite a lady inside the shop apologising for the inconvenience I feel that this was not good enough on the shops part and didn't resolve the issues I was left to face on my little girls special day. Very disappointed.More

Busy but table found. Food served quickly. Excellent quality - jacket potato, chilli, sour cream and onions. Very tasty. Indulgent treat of fresh cream chocolate eclair to follow. All washed down with freshly made black coffee. Very tasty and enjoyable.

Recently met friends for lunch - and, as always, it was a perfect treat. The food is always fresh. The portions are always generous. It's always a delight to return to CuriosiTea. The staff are always warm and welcoming. If you're anywhere near Layton, pop...in. If you're in Blackpool, make a trip. It's worth it.More

Wonderful breakfast bagels and chicken wraps, and always a treat to stop in and find what delicious baked goods are in store! They are always so friendly and even have takeaway options available, which is very handy when on the go! Highly recommend stopping in

Always come here for their kids afternoon teas, they are amazing! Kids love them so much, themed ones for occasions like halloween so much effort and little details put into them.

I can't go pass without stopping for cake. Oh my word Sue never disappoints. What a stupendous selection of home made cakes. I only intended to buy one for myself and one for my hubby. Mission failed I ended up buying much more. It will...be stretchy trousers for the test of the week now. Always a wonderful warm welcome whether you sit in or take out.

I visited for afternoon tea with my sister. As a coeliac, afternoon tea isn’t something I normally get to enjoy, making this a real treat. We were so well looked after by the two ladies who couldn’t have been more accommodating. Everything we ate was...simply delicious and there was so much food, particularly considering the price. I highly recommend this cute little spot, and will definitely pay another visit if I’m ever in Blackpool again.More
