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.

Treated my friend to birthday breakfast. Staff so accommodating of my dietary requirements (celiac and vegetarian). And was made to feel included, which was such a nice feeling. Fantastic breakfast, coffee and service in general. Will certainly be back once they are open again.

A lovely little cafe with a nice atmosphere. The staff are friendly, the food well cooked and very tasty. I can highly recommend the Basil Benedict which is a real treat.

Went to Basilia today for a celebration afternoon tea. It was wonderful. Beautifully presented, lovely sandwiches and cake. All you could ask for in an afternoon tea. The service was second to none. I would thoroughly recommend Cathy and her staff. I have been to...Basilia on a number of occasions for lunch, brunch and breakfasts. The food and service has been wonderful on each occasion.More

I've been to Basilia many times and always found the food to be good and adequate But the afternoon teas are of poor quality and quantity. The sandwiches hardly had any filling in them. Having a onion and cream allergy which I said at time...of booking. Semt to be overlooked with a sandwich with sage and onion stuffing in. Which a member of staff did ask if everything was OK and I informed her of this and she laughed and walked off. The cake was poor standard a fruit cake that was very dry and no taste also another sponge cake with no taste at all of which we didn't eat either. A very small scone and a rice crispy cake. Come on Basilia You have lovely cakes in the window so why don't you ask which piece would the customer like on the afternoon tea, like other places do Instead of the tasteless rubbish. Certainly won't be returning or recommending the afternoon teas to anyone.More

I have been to Basilia lots of times but have started to go there now with groups of friends as the venue is so perfect for a get together. Today we had a bit of a school reunion and were very noisy, exited women! But...that was no problem to them at all and they gave us a private room. Food is excellent but more important the warm welcome is exceptional. Kathy and her team work so hard and have achieved a very successful café (which is more than a café actually) There's a lovely delicatessen too. We will be back! Thank you to everyone.More

I visited this morning with my mum for a nice little treat. All I can say is I will definitely be back and I highly recommend this little hidden gem. We had a cappuccino each along with a ploughman's lunch for my mum and a...pastrami, emental, mustard and gherkin sandwich on granary bread. The coffees are fabulous and of great quality and then the food... wow.. the ploughman's came out first, straight away it just look fantastic and my mum said all the food on it tasted incredible especially the black bomber cheddar. My sandwich was one of the best I've had, everything tasted so fresh and was made to perfection. I would definitely recommend a visit here.More
