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.

Not terribly chuffed by my latest visit to Cafe Velo Verde (and I am a regular). I had cash in my pocket, which I had won last year at a time trial and wanted to spend on a well earned cup of coffee and sausage...roll, however the cashier was reluctant to accept cash. It was pointed out to me several times that they don’t do that and I was made to feel as if I was at fault for daring to have legal tender in my pocket!! The cashier then started stumbling around with a tub of coins (seems like they don’t have a proper float) and asking me if I want to donate to charity because she was ten pence short on the change — prices are already sky high, so no chance, how about you donate ten pence!! At this point, feeling told off and embarrassed, I gave up and paid with card. 🤬 The coffee and my sausage roll were good. Just shame about the experience trying to pay.More

I cycle here frequently from Warwickshire from for some food and it’s a nice place to visit. We called in on the way home from holiday and it’s completely dog unfriendly. You can’t sit inside and you can’t sit under the canopy and have to...sit outside. I kind of understand not being able to sit inside with a small dog, I mean other places manage perfectly well, but I understand. Not being able to sit outside under the canopy when it’s completely empty is crazy. Apparently dogs are a trip hazard. I wouldn’t mind so much if it was mid summer and packed out, it’s autumn, two small groups in the cafe, nobody under the canopy and four groups squeezed under the green gazebo freezing their hands off. Someone said that it never used to be like this and that the ownership has changed, if that’s the case I’m am so happy for them that business is so good that 75% of their customers were sat in one corner outside with their food, drinks and hands going cold in the wind and complaining about the management. Great place to cycle to, completely hopeless if you have a dog, sod ‘em, not going again on my bike. I’ll go to the Kingfisher Lodge instead. I expect a reply from the management will be Basil Fawlty-esque telling me how wrong I am, health and safety and I’m welcome to never darken their doors again. So what. 100/ of other places are more accommodating,and do better coffee.More

This is a great place. Part of an eco farm. I always have something when visiting one of the other businesses here. Their milkshakes/ice choc or coffee are SO good. Yum! Cakes, delicious! The only thing I've been disappointed with is the cheese scones, which...were blank with a awful undertaste. Everything else, amazing!More

Hmm. Maybe it was a one off but seemed a bit off the boil. Been few times on two wheels and returned this morning by car. My usual sausage bacon and egg cob wasn’t as good as usual for some reason. Unusually , the bacon...was so crispy and cremated it was literally inedible, as was the egg which had a really unusual feature of a slimy white with a rock hard yolk. Sausages were delicious as usual and the pre ordered brown sauce was sparing. The bread was strangely dry . No one came to check if things were OK and no comment was made as the largely uneaten cob was cleared away . This is a great place and the first issue I’ve ever had , so sure it’s just a blip, but as some feedback please cook the bacon less!More

This is a regular haunt of my husband as he is a keen cyclist and he’s raved about the coffee, cakes and bacon for sometime. Having eaten here myself a couple of times I can vouch for the excellence of the food, particularly the cheese...scones, toasties and soup and the coffee (especially the special velo flat white, which is sublime on a cold day). Yesterday twenty of us turned up at the half way point of a walk (we had pre-warned them) and all had great coffee and cakes ( some breakfast cobs were also had). Thank you so much as we were served quickly and efficiently so had plenty of time to enjoy our break. Thanks also for saving us the tables which meant we could all sit together. Hope to be back soon.More

Visited this cafe after a lovely walk around the villages. It’s in a lovely setting and a great location, however we were disappointed that’s it’s not really dog friendly. The cafe and undercover outside area were empty yet signs saying dogs not allowed, there’s a...sign to say you have to sit outside or underneath a gazebo. It was a cold windy day so our food / coffee (which were lovely) went cold very quickly. I think your missing out on what is a prime dog walking area.More

Visited this cafe due to really good reviews. Ordered cappuccino and cherry blonde and my friend ordered an iced chai latte and rocky road. The coffee was really good but the blondie had about half a cherry in which was a bit disappointing. However my...friend throughly enjoyed both her chai latte and rocky road. Then we ordered a passion fruit smoothie each and shared a cheese and tomato rosaries. Both of these were really good and tasty. The staff were all lovely and helpful, answering any questions we had. Only negative would be the price as for just a cheese and tomato tomato it was £5.80. However I am guessing the products are good quality which would explain the price. Great experience l, would return!More

Visited today as my wife had been before and must say a lovely little cafe. My wife had a vegetarian sausage cob and I had a sausage and bacon cob which were both fantastic and had a lovely latte too. Only slight complaint would be...I would personally prefer the latte in a proper latte mug with a handle instead of a glass with no handle as can be a bit hot to hold but that’s just a minor thing… other than that absolutely fantastic and we will visit again.More
