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.

We had the pleasure of enjoying their afternoon tea earlier this year and it was amazing. We only wish we had taken a photo before we polished it all off. We had a quick look at their lunch board while we were waiting and I...would be hard pressed to pick just one thing. Luckily, we had a fantastic selection of savoury and sweet treats in our afternoon tea and even the meat eaters amongst us, enjoyed it all. Exceptional food and attentive service, what more could you ask for!More

We were fed like royalty - delicious roast dinners beautifully served and generous portions. We had eyes bigger than our tummies for delicious pudding. Such pleasant folk at the Deagonfly, we were spoilt and had a wonderful, memorable Mothering Sunday feast! Thank you so much...we look forward to stopping by again xxMore

My recent visit to DragonFly Bistro for afternoon tea was exceptional. They offered a variety of sandwiches, quiche, cakes, and scones. All looked and tasted amazing. The attentive and wonderful service added to the experience, making it highly recommendable not only for vegans and vegetarians...but for anyone in search of quality culinary experiences.More

Went here for the first time a few weeks ago and was super impressed. I went for the nut roast Sunday lunch which was gluten free and my mum went for the celeriac soup which could also be served with gluten free bread. Both were...absolutely delicious and felt very comforting. When taking the order the waitress asked if there were any allergies to which I said I was coeliac. Very reassuring that she was aware of it and told the people in the kitchen. I felt safe eating here. Staff were very friendly too. As a local I will 100% be back here very soon!More

The best food available in Aberystwyth, The owner is truly a goddess in the kitchen and balances every flavour in every meal perfectly. The menu caters for any food allergies, food is fresh, healthy and cooked with passion. I use this restaurant regularly and as...yet have not found anything that I did not enjoy. All food is served with a relaxed friendly atmosphere. A must go to if you are thinking of eating out in Aberystwyth. Truly a gem of a restaurant.More

We ate here whilst passing through Aberystwyth and it was great. We had a Buddha Bowl and a Lentil bake platter, followed by a Bakewell Tart and Flapjack, washed down with coffee and ginger beer. It was great value and would definitely recommend!

Hi Craig. Apologies for the late response. Unfortunately, we did not get an alert. To help other diners, we just want to confirm that we are a vegan/vegetarian eatery so we do not serve meat, fish or poultry. Many thanks... More
