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.

Stopped off here on a drive around the area as we staying in locality. Lovely place and sat in the garden. A lovely natural place to sit. Ordered 2 coffees and 2 sausage pastries. Came to £20 which I feel was a little overpriced for...what we got. We got our food but had to chase the coffees. Was ok but as I say perhaps on the expensive side.More

I ordered a Cezar salad sandwich. It looked amazing and tasted even more amazing. I do recommend this. When I was there the place was fully booked and the staff worked hard to get everyone a good seat.

Good quality food, however really overpriced. We were charged £7 for a single strudel with a single scoop of ice cream. These prices are higher than in central London. Staff however polite considering the high turnover of customers.More

Stopped in the town for breakfast and found this place. Warm and friendly greeting and a nice setting to have breakfast. Food was excellent although could have done without the extensive salad leaves added to my breakfast, not everyone wants to eat salad for breakfastMore

Called in for breakfast. Nice coffee. Good porridge, granola, berries, and yogurt. Unfortunately, the yogurt was rather bland. Nice place, good service, but my wife did not appreciate being called a "guy", typical of so many people providing service these days. A little pricey but...the best in Inverary.More

No I dont think so as I’ve been to Brambles many times and never seen a dog in there, you could however give them a phone to double check.
