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.

Never judge a book by its cover! Not much from the outside but lovely food, lovely service. Hubby wanted a cooked breakfast and he wasn’t disappointed.

Nice food and staff, the food comes nice and quick and is very nice. It’s such a small cafe and is definitely underrated! Overall, very good.

Nearly got a four star. We stopped for a quick coffee and cake. Staff very quick to put a ramp down for my wife's buggy. Coffees good but lemon meringue cake bit bland with no lemon bite, scone ok. Once again on exiting the cafe...staff quick to put ramp down. Staff very good but food bit average.More

We had a fresh fruit scone with jam & a large piece of delicious & filling lemon cake. The lady serving was very nice. Made you feel at home. A tea & bottle of water washed down our lite bites. All this for less than...£7.50. Value for money. Clean throughout & outside seating if weather is kind. The toilet is reached by a rather steep staircase but accessible with care if mobility is an issue. Thank you will call again.More

Popped in for breakfast. Wish we hadn’t bothered. Tried to order poached eggs but bluntly told ‘no, not on a Sunday as need the hob for Sunday lunches’. Charged an extra 10p for coffee rather than tea with the breakfast - seriously! Overcharged but when...pointed it out just got the change put on the table. No apology. Even then it was wrong so we had to point it out again. Same happened - no apology. Food was average. Toast soggy. Plate overloaded so hard to eat it. Won’t be backMore

It was colder inside than it was outside. I ate a toasted and a cup of tea. I should left and gone to costa. The serving lady never smiled of even said thank you. Probably cos she was freezing too. Terrible experience.
