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.

Sweet little bakery. I was pleased to discover they had some vegan options - I enjoyed their vegan sausage roll, very delicious. My feedback would be that I would love to see them expand on their vegan range, to make the bakery a more kind...and conscious choice for consumers ~ reducing their contribution to animal suffering and lowering their carbon footprint.More

After reading all the good reviews, we had to give this place a try. I got a sausage roll and my wife got a bean roll. I know this is a small sample size, but neither of these rolls was anything to write home about....My sausage roll was taste less, kind of like some you would get at the gas station and the bean roll was not much better.More

Some people have a 'thing' about wine, others about cheese, others about bread. I'm in the third group. A few years ago, I bought a loaf from Burns the Bread in the High Street in Glastonbury. It was, to say the least, beyond perfect. I...was there, again, this Monday, so I treated myself to an 800g granary tin that cost £2.80 (yes, that's right; I had HIGH expectations for that price, as I could purchase the same at Asda for £1.30). To say I was almost in tears when I came to eat is it an understatement. The 'crust' was wrinkly soft and the entirety too firm, tell-tale signs of an old or stale loaf. Having cut off ALL 6 crusts, I came to something that would be deemed barely passable after two days given a bog-standard loaf. This 'Burns' loaf had NOT, I repeat NOT, been baked the same day and was being sold from the previous day's leftovers. I can tell, I just can, because I have to have real, fresh bread. The only positive is that I took a closer look at the Special Bread section in Asda today. I bought a 400g fancy kalamata olive loaf (£1.95). It was gorgeous and HAD been baked there that day. Needless to say, I'll be going through the rest of that Special Bread section. Burns the Bread in Glastonbury is now a farce. AVOID at all costs.More

Burns the Bread simply sells delicious baked goods. And that's it. :D I've known them for a couple of years now and whenever I visit Glastonbury I enjoy one or another thing from their bakery. Absolutely delicious!

Fabulous cakes and pastries. The Eccles cakes are delicious. As too was the carrot cake, apple danish, Viennese finger and the pasties! Crisp pastry. Just out of the oven.

This is not a restaurant... It's a bakery and they make the most delicious rhubarb muffins, which we like to think are a healthier option :0} Nothing more to say... Except, leave us some for our next visit ;0)

I don't know but you'd probably need to leave all but service dogs outside, it's small. But wonderful!! Not to be missed.
