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.

Popped into the cafe for breakfast this morning, and despite all the new regulations, the staff did a good job. I did notice that they have new plates, they're shaped like rugby balls, and slightly smaller than the old round ones. Not impressed with these as your food tends to fall off of the plate as you're trying to cut it up. Having said that, the food seemed better than the last time I visited. Tasty. Reasonably priced and will definitely use them again.

I called into this establishment with a group of friends whilst travelling through the area. I was very surprised at the value for money that was on offer. The service was good and the staff were friendly. The food was very quickly supplied and was hot and filling. I will definitely be visiting here again.

We pulled in here as my friend was desperate for the loo 🚻 and we thought we'd have a coffee ☕. We ended up having a full meal which was well cooked and great value. Of course it's not high end dining but more than acceptable Highly recommended

To be honest, I cant fault Glanusk Cafe for serving up a really tasty cooked breakfast in double-quick time. Vegetarian alternative was great and the option of mini versions was very welcome. A nice, clean, modern cafe with great service and the promise of lunch dishes that I am sure would be equally spot on.

This place used to be my favoured stop off but it has really gone down hill. Myself, my wife, and our 8yr old son called in for brunch on our way to England and the woman behind the counter was incredibly brusque to the point of rudeness. There was no greeting and we got the feeling that we were just an inconvenience. She was highly impatient when discussing our menu options - I'm hard of hearing (too many years on a bike) not stupid and she spoke to me like an idiot, She was generally unpleasant. The waitress was just as prickly and we all felt unwelcome. Sadly the food we ordered didn't compensate for the unfriendly atmosphere - fatty bacon, cheap, tasteless sausages, weak tea etc. We will not rush back.

Having been working in and around Brecon for 2 years now, and visit the cafe 2 or 3 times a week, today was just terrible. Asked for a double cheese burger, told they didn’t do them. Had one many times before. Very nice lady came out and corrected that, so ordered a double cheese burger. When it came it was a single. Said don’t worry about it. Went to pay, tried to charge me for a double. When my colleague went to pay for his(he actually got a double) it was £10.50! When asked about the price was told to look at the menu several time. Not good customer service for recurring customer who spend a lot of money in both the cafe and petrol station

An incredibly miserable older woman who should not be working in customer service was extremely rude to me. Without asking me nicely or saying it in a more calmer tone she snapped at me to take me dog outside. She could of said hello first! I said of course that's not a problem I had actually asked if my dog was allowed I just needed to get the WiFi code. She snapped at me again, I had asked twice for the WiFi code and she didn't answer me so I took a photo of the code on the wall and sat back outside. She told me they were closing now anyway, I had only just sat down with my cup of tea! I have never been spoken to or felt like that in a cafe before. I didn't feel comfortable staying even though I was outside on my own so I left, such a shame. I work in customer service myself and even on days where I have found it incredibly hard putting on a happy face for the general public I have never spoken to anyone like that, I'm really shocked. I left feeling quite upset. Clearly a very unhappy person who needs to consider a different job for herself! I have to mention the lovely younger lady who served me my tea she was polite and happy to serve me thank you.

Okay food. Okay prices. Bad service. The woman who works behind the counter is very rude and abrupt. Completely put me off ever going back. Place would be better off without her. I also heard the table next to us mentioning the same thing. Tap water also tasted like it came from stream outside. The young lad rhat served our table slam.ed all plates down, then pucked a butter off the floor and put in my friends toast. Finally, £2 for a slice of toast is a joke.

Great cafe open 7 days a week from 8am. Sadly no gluten free options so all I had was a cup of tea. After asking about gluten free I was told they sold stuff in the garage shop next door! Then they put a biscuit on the saucer of the tea I ordered. Sadly can’t return if there is nothing I can eat. More training needed for staff and a more inclusive menu.

Went to wash my horses rugs in the washing machines, the machine stopped working. We travelled to ask male member of staff for help and he was anything but helpful. Female member of staff then became aggressive and then began holding a conversation behind my back with another member of staff, rude, unhelpful staff with no manners. Will never use the service again.

A fab cafe! Called in whilst on a bike ride with my husband. He had been before but I hadn’t. Initially we only intended having a drink but ended up having food too. Don’t be put off by any negative reviews - it was great. The food was tasty, well cooked and reasonably priced. We didn’t try them but the cakes looked insane! Very popular with bikers which is a good sign food wise. Great little place

We have been visiting this cafe many times over the last two decades and it's an enjoyable experience, both in atmosphere and excellent service. John, David and the rest of the team are hardworking, friendly, professional and provide a first- class service. We highly recommend a visit and after the current lockdown in our area ( Neath Port Talbot) we will be eagerly returning. Top drawer!

Called at the this cafe as its usually a very good choice of place to have a quick bite to eat. However on this occasion all social distancing measures and mask wearing as its mandatory in hospitality in Wales have now been thrown out of the window, the staff wore masks under thier chins and there were at least 10 people queing by the till with no masks or Social distancing it was like being somewhere were there was no pandemic going on. The people that were wearing masks were in the minority here and there were no challenges from the staff employed at the cafe either. I would give this place a miss if you value your health,

(review on garage itself and staff, could not find a place to review it apart from the cafe) I shouldn't even give this place a 1 star rating it should be 0, I have been to this garage numerous amount of times and every single time I have felt so uncomfortable going in there due to the attitude of the members of staff. I wouldn't even call this individual rude because she is so much worse than that. She is patronising and extremely miserable. It seems they train their staff to be this way, as most of them are. The person I believe to be in charge is also an impolite cow, I hope they see this review and seriously change their attitudes to customers. It's appalling.

This is a review of the garage - not the cafe. Having just spent over £50 in her shop, the female owner was extremely rude, miserable and unhelpful. I was snapped at, and spoken to as though I was a piece of dirt. Never mind 'customer care' - just a complete lack of basic courtesy. Will be avoiding and using other garage in the village for my fuel.
