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.

A lovely cafe serving a wide range of breakfast and other meal options. Had simple bacon/bacon and black pudding roll, with tea and a smoothie. The food arrived perfectly cooked to order with produce of the highest quality. Other meals are available i.e..lunch, with specials...in addition to the main menu. Pleasant staff and good value for money. We will be back.... tomorrow. Well done to owners and staff. Excellent in all areas.More

The Small World is a typical, old-style, no frills town centre cafe with a good range of hot and cold food and snacks. We just had crumpets and scones with tea and all were very good. Service was efficient and the prices most reasonable.

What a great find on a trip back to the UK. A real gem in Hexham just off the market place and Abbey. As you walk in ,the friendly and helpful staff show you to a table. The menu choices were great including gluten free...and vegan, we just wanted something very traditional. I had the sausage sandwich followed by caramel shortcake, my husband the toasted crumpets followed by sausage sandwich. All were tasty and good value. I would recommend it to anyone.More

The food was gorgeous I had eggs benedict following by a scone and clotted cream - this was washed down with an orange flavoured chocolate. I was in heaven for about 30mins!
