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 married couple staying across the road, we pulled into Hungry Pumpkin for breakfast. What a place! From a cheery welcome from staff as we walked in, to superb breakfast fare at a very reasonable price, what's not to like? The café itself is beautifully...presented, with tables for two and four as customers desire and gentle music playing in the background. Go here for wonderful food in the very best atmosphere.More

What a great little find. Staying in Nottingham but didn't want to pay hotel breakfast prices and found this little gem. Great food with a large selection, staff are so friendly and helpful. Ideal local business that does things right.

I had a really enjoyable lunch at the Hungry Pumpkin with my sister. The Italian staff were warm, friendly and very helpful, giving the cafe a lovely atmosphere. Our food was delicious and very generous portions - especially the wedges! We'd highly recommend it and...will be back next time we visit Nottingham. PS We also bought Italian biscuits and pasta from the Deli :-0)More

Been twice now. Its a small place and we've had to wait a few minutes for a table both times but it's worth it. Good tasting coffee and breakfasts are fantastic. Mega breakfast is excellent value. My wife loves the Halloumi special. The friendliness of...the staff makes it even better and a few places could learn from here how to treat customers. We will be back when in Nottingham again.More

We met a friend on a quick visit to Nottingham. There was an extensive menu, plus specials. We are vegan, our friend is an omnivore. We all found food to our liking. The staff were friendly and attentive. Great experience.

Food & service were awesome . Baked spud, veggie breakfast for lunch was so very good. Make the effort to come here - you’ll have no regrets! Fabulous atmosphere and excellent home cooked food. Will be back for coffee again tomorrow.

Worth hunting out, we went because of the reviews, had to wait a little while for a table but was worth it. I had the omelette, others had sandwiches and ciabatta. All was delicious, freshly cooked, excellent service and great value for money. Lots of...people were ordering takeaway lunch and coffee.More
