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 in here recently on a trip through Wick to Dunnet Head - Got a cheese & tuna toastie and a latte which were both excellent. Owners were really friendly and the price reasonable considering the location - Have a feeling they could charge 2/3...times the price - being on the NC 500 - but choose not to. Will certainly return.More

We were on our way back to Thurso from Wick when we came across this cosy little cafe where we decided to stop for lunch. So glad we did!! Amazing place! And the incredible artist: Glyn and (we presume) his wife were absolutely brilliant! Only...a few tables and very informal. We were the only guests and had a lovely chat with them over a nice lunch: soup and a sandwich. The walls are covered in beautiful wooden handcrafted figures that are all for sale. Will definitely come back next time we visit the Highlands. Highly recommended!More

We stumbled upon this lovely wee spot driving down from Orkney. We stopped at Tesco Wick for Petrol and as the café was under refurbishment we did a good google search and found this stop. (it's 2 minutes drive from the Tesco as you're heading...into Wick - easy to miss!) Simple but good breakfast choices, cooked fresh (not pre-cooked and hot held) and even better, they had Gluten Free bread and sausages as the owners are GF intolerant like myself. Will definitely stop here again for food.More

Back from the Orkney Islands and after a stop off at busy J O’G ....looked on the sat nav for a much less “touristy” spot for a bit of tea, as we were both fancying something down to earth and The Rumblin Tum came up...as being nearby. A quick check of T.Advisor and noted the reviews were OK and off we headed, You could easily drive past, as it doesn’t immediately look like a cafe but good roadside signage informed us that this was the right place. Quirky it is .....but Glynn, author, wood artist and chef today...is a welcoming chap and his cafe clearly reflects his style. Basic cafe food but absolutely nothing wrong with that & plenty of choice on the menu, everything is cooked fresh to order. Egg, chips and beans we fancied and thats exactly what we got, with two piping hot mugs of coffee at sensible prices. Glynn, wishing you lots of good luck with your bus project and thank you for our tea. Spot on. You know who we are.More

This was a perfect stopping point for lunch with our two toddlers. It's a reasonably small and slightly eccentric old school cafe but we were happy with our meals and the owner was cheery and helpful. There's also a range of wood knick-knacks. The menu...is basic but very good value.More

Think this is one of the friendliest cafes we’ve ever stopped at, I felt like we’d stopped in to visit friends the way we were looked after. The cafe was also very dog friendly, our wee dog was spoiled for attention which is always lovely....The food was simple but very tasty and generous portions too.More

We stopped off here for lunch with no expectations as we are not familiar with the area. We had lovely food and a warm beverage, it was just what the doctor ordered! The owner was friendly and very welcoming to us, nice quirky atmosphere in...the cafe. All covid precautions adhered to. Good luck with the book launch.More
