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.

This cafe is a great find! It’s dog friendly so was perfect after the forest walk we did. Heather was very friendly and welcoming! We loved the lunch, cake and coffee we had. Everything was delicious!

Visited for the first time today and it was a great experience. I had no idea there was such a fantastic cafe in Inveraray. The selection was extensive and I felt the prices were very acceptable for the quality and presentation of the food. I...had the HLT with fried and I have no issues with saying I think it could be the best sandwich I have ever eaten (and I have eaten quite a few lol) the fries were lovely too. Fresh water available to help yourself. Atmosphere was so cosy, service was super quick and staff very attentive and chatty. Overall great experience! I am already thinking about when I can travel down next from Oban for another sandwich!!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.
