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.

Budget graded bacon not much of it with low value bread bun Very disappointed for this kind of establishment. They need to use better produce not low value low cost to make more profits by selling higher. Certainly be more generous on the portions. Seriously...my bacon bap is better value at Greggs. Hopefully this feedback will be constructive.More

Love the new decor of the restaurant. Delicious food and great service. Good choice for children which was a reason we visited as had my 5 year old nephew for the day. Thank you.

Today’s lunch was exceptional. We had the steak and ale pie from the specials board. The pie is delicious with a lovely crust and plenty of meat. The fat chips are delicious especially with the extra gravy. Service is very friendly and efficient and we...are looking forward to going back to try the Supper Club.More

Called while walking and it's an unexpected find. The car parking is good and the entrance is flat. There is both inside and outside seating with umbrellas. It's dog friendly. The welcome was warm and it's spotlessly clean as are the loos. We had a...fish finger sandwich, it was first class, beautiful fresh bloomer bread thickly sliced and crispy battered fish finger filling in a good portion served with lovely coleslaw and salad with a nice balsamic dressing. Absolutely excellent. The drinks were very nice and served good and hot. The menu is varied and changes during the day but varies from breakfast to cream tea. You may have to book cream tea so be sure to check in advance for that. The service was friendly and efficient. We will go back.More

We were a party of 5. It took that long for the waitress to serve us we ordered drinks and food at the same time. The food was delicious. We had starters, mains and dessert. When asked if we wanted more drinks we just had...water. (The cocktails we had weren’t that cold so didn’t want to order again !). The glasses from the first drinks stayed on the table throughout the whole meal, and were still there when we left!! It wasn’t even that busy. Asked for tomato sauce and was given a bottle that was nearly empty. So had to ask for more. Waitress took ages to return and when she did there was about a tablespoon full in a small dish. Expected better service due to how expensive it was. Couldn’t fault the food but the overall evening was let down by the serviceMore

Very disappointed with the meal, over cooked quiche and the salad and coleslaw was poor. It was very expensive as well. The surroundings were very nice, but if you have mobility problems there isn't much room downstairs and there are a lot of stairs to...claim to the upstair restaurant.More

Visited with friends for our monthly meal out together. The Wednesday/Thursday evening menu is really good value; 2 courses £19, 3 courses £24. The quality of cooking is excellent and the service is friendly and relaxed. We will going here a lot in the future.

Recently extended/refurbished to an excellent standard. We have eaten here on many occasions for lunch and also in the distant past when they had bistro nights and it was excellent. Unfortunately this time the food was poor, being overcooked although members of our party who...had soup and pie were pleased with their choice. It is not cheap so on reflection I wouldn't return.More

We discovered this little cafe a few years ago and have been regular customers, usually opting to sit upstairs or on a sunny day, outside so our child can play on the little play frame. It’s always been a bit hit and miss for good...service, but they are often very busy here and we’ve never minded, but the last few visits we’ve been left feeling disappointed. The menu seems to have gone up a lot in price, and the portions aren’t very big at all. £12 for a fish finger sandwich that doesn’t even come with chips, I mean it’s just extortionate really. We ordered 2 sandwiches, 2 soft drinks and a kids sandwich and it came to over £35, which is just a ridiculous amount for some lunch in a cafe. I can only imagine we paid for the beautiful views, which yes it is in a lovely setting but I don’t think that quite warrants the price. The service is usually slow and they’ve now gotten rid of the gift shop which is a real shame as that was one my reasons for visiting. It’s a shame really as it’s always been such a firm favourite but from now on we will stick to one of the pubs or take a picnic into Bradfield, it’s really just not worth the moneyMore

My friends and I visited this lovely cafe on Sunday after a walk around the Dam. It’s newly refurbished and the interiors look amazing! We ordered coffees, which tasted delicious after our walk and they were very reasonably priced. For food we had the Headmaster’s...Burger, Bradfield Brewery Fish & Chips, Halloumi Salad and the Homemade Quiche, all our meals came out promptly, were piping hot and you could tell the ingredients were fresh. 5 stars for taste! They had a special deal on Cocktails and Cakes so we couldn’t resist sharing a couple of these to finish and they did not disappoint! The Victoria Sponge and G&T were a perfect combo 😉 I can’t believe I’ve only just found this place as we absolutely loved it! Would recommend to anyone visiting the area, and I will be back soon to try their brunch!More

The staff were just delightful from the beginning. Tolerated various tricky food intolerances with a smile. Even came to explain why they didn’t include the marshmallows in the hot chocolate because of concern re gelatin . Absolutely superb mince pie. Could not recommend more highly
