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.

Went to have breakfast, we waited for half an hour after ordering food, I asked how long it would be, I was told they hadn't even started cooking it yet. Got our drinks which a tin of juice costs £2.75!!! Day light robbery.

We were gifted a voucher for afternoon tea and used it for our anniversary. Amazing from start to finish. Everything freshly prepared, really tasty food and well presented. Great to have a decent sized tea pot and mugs! Great friendly service too, will definitely be...back (breakfast menu also looked great!)More

We checked the web site which said it was open till 4 so we got my grandaughter organised and headed over there at ten to 3, got the baby out the car etc and went to go on but the door was blocked by chairs...& someone shouted at us we’re shut! No sorry we were quiet and closed early sorry for the inconvenience just we’re shut & very bluntly too and the owner was there also. We were pretty disappointed and won’t be back, it’s not easy getting a baby out the house so we went to Greggs and spent out hard earned cash there.More

Used to be a regular but not been for a year. Menu smaller and quality poorer. Not good value. Staff seemed unorganized, service slow and not friendly, two items arrived were wrong ( brown not white bread and wrong filling) and response was not responsive....No salad with toastie/sandwich/baked potato and served instead with with salted crisps! at 7 quid for even basic cheese toastie I would expect at least a small side salad. Americano so so. No diet coke, no sparkling water! Needless to say will not be backMore

The staff were friendly, informative and polite. Food was lovely and nicely presented ( warm plates,...always a plus). Next time we are definately having an afternoon tea, looked amazing. Thanks for a lovely experience.More

Visited with friends and was very pleasantly surprised ( in a good way) with this place. First impressions were good, the decor is lovely. Food and service was first class, our waitress was very cheerful and patient with us as we took a while to...decide what we would have from their wide selection on their menu. The waitress looked like she enjoyed her job as so often nowadays the staff looked bored but definitely not in this little cafe. A visit to the toilet is a must, I’ve never seen a toilet like it, the decor is amazing and whoever decorated this has a beautiful 😻 imagination , we will definitely be back and would highly recommend it to everyoneMore
