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.

Very disappointed with my lunch The salmon appeared to be sitting under a heat lamp for way too long and it and the brown bread were hard and dry. Some of it inedible When visiting the bathroom there was no toilet paper and no soap...in the dispenser. When I pointed this out to the manager I was told that there were no other complaints about the salmon that day and no apology was offered! I certainly will not be going back nor would I recommend it to anyone elseMore

Went in for breakfast. Staff were very nice, no issues there and did was not too long unlike other reviews. However, food was poor when it came through. I paid extra for bacon, and got one piece chargrilled to the point of flaking apart. The...pancakes were bland and there was insufficient syrup/sides etc - mostly it was just a plate of cooked dough. Overall would not recommendMore

Very disappointed with my visit to foam. Took over an hour for our food to be brought out after ordering. Staff were not attentive and couldn’t even be bothered to bring us out a glass of water. Would not recommend, terrible service.

Visited Foam with a friend and was appalled to say the least. We had ordered our food and drinks and were waiting quite a while. I had waited 20 minutes for a cup of tea and I approached a young girl working there to remind...her of my order and received a narky and snappy response of “ Ya we’re busy” even though customers who arrived after us received their orders before us! Another 15 minutes passed and still no tea so I told another girl behind the counter and she said that she had not been told by the other waitress about the order. I finally received my order by the original waitress who slammed it on the table with no apology or even acknowledgement of the fact I had been waiting over 35 minutes just for a cup of tea!!! Food arrived eventually. Unfortunately this extremely poor service has deterred me from wanting to visit foam again.More

Left waiting around , you need to flag down staff to get anything. All the food is slow and overpriced. This opinion is formed over multiple visits.

The service was awful. I had to repeatedly ask for things I had ordered so that they actually were brought to my table. I was served my sandwich without my sides. I had to ask for water for the table a couple of times before...I actually got it. It was served after I had had my meal. The food, however, was alright. Wouldn’t honestly say it was great. Waiting 45 minutes for the food to be served did not help!More

With the latest restrictions this coffee shop needs our support - friendly owner, delicious coffee and yummy sandwiches. Menu is attached. Available to take out. Happily recommend the Chicken sandwich. Moorish. Bushy park is nearby with lots of benches so enjoy the last of the...summer sun with a Foam sandwich. (Three onside benches also available to sit and sip your coffee.)More

Went for a lovely coffee and felt safe with numbers even being taken for contact tracking.....roll on a week....went back again to meet a friend...for coffee BUT was stolen as it was during "lunch" I had to order food and not coffee..... Now....whilst I understand the restaurant needs to capitalize as it has limited seating....I felt ALL customers should be valued as by them coming back is what keeps a business going.....

Foam is open for sit down and take out lunch and the food’s delicious. The service is excellent and there’s lots of obvious cleaning going on ( plus hand sanitiser in each table). If you book ahead you can have a lunch table for 60...mins, Recommend the smokey lemon chicken sandwich ( french toast was also a winner with super sweet fruit). Delicious teas a d coffees Top marks !More
