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.

I’ve been popping in for a coffee, filter brew, and hot chocolates for years. The quality is so good and remains consistent. The baristas are top notch professionals and always friendly. I highly recommend a visit if you’re in the area.

I nearly didn't review this place as supporting local independent businesses is the motto of our family. But I then had a change of heart. This needs saying. We have over a few months visited here for take out coffees and hot chocolates.. The first...time my husband commented that the coffee was nice but it was expensive and the "man and woman behind the counter had an attitude" The second time I was alone and noticed the sniffy attitude to. It's as though they are doing you a favour serving you. I don't need over the top false niceties but slightly friendly and polite would be nice. Roll on a few weeks and the lovely smell of coffee wafted across the road and I popped in for a take away coffee and a hot chocolate. I am a diabetic so I asked for a hot chocolate made with 100% cocoa chocolate. I then asked if they had any sweeteners to which the woman making the drink said "really? Do you really think you need more sweetener? Don't you think it's sweet enough?" I replied that it was 100% cocoa chocolate and therefore has no sugar, which was the point of the order. In anyone's book this was extremely rude. Sorry Bean and Bud, you may have your niche customers who think you are wonderful but if you are consistently as rude to non regulars you don't deserve more custom.More

Had the most amazing chorizo and mozzarella toasted sandwich - it really was lovely! Coffee was fab too - I liked the fact I got a choice between two coffees of the week - nice to be able to try something different. The service was...excellent - everything came out quick, hot and was all served with a smile :)More

Found by chance as visiting Harrogate. popped in for a coffee and a tea with a cake. Lovely service. Toasted tea cake was perfect and coffee was delicious. Sometimes coffee is bitter, here they have it just right. Thank you for our lovely stop!

Gorgeous ‘home made’ cake selection & very tasty coffee. Excellent service from very friendly staff. Able to sit out in the sunshine. Interesting mix of shops in the streets around.

Never misses a beat. The coffee is always top notch. Whether you prefer filter or espresso. And it’s the only place in town that offers a variety of beans/roasters. The staff are super friendly and knowledgeable. I highly recommend a visit for anyone seeking a...coffee adventure. Also, they’re dog friendly, family owned, and a local business.More

Extremely rude customer service as I paid with a £20 pound note and was given change for a £10.. I fully understand they can be genuine mistakes and they are people out there that lie but as a customer that uses the coffee shop around...5 days a week and have never had a problem or issue I was basically called a liar. They can keep the £10 that they stole and I will never return for what it would have cost them to refund for 2 coffees until the following day was pennys. I was even willing to leave it with them until the following day but as I was waiting I could see the girl who served me talking amounst them self's saying I didn't give them a 20 if that was the last of my money they would have had a total different response.More

The baristas at Bean and Bud always serve excellent artisan coffee, you can tell it isnt your run of the mill coffee beans and they also give a choice of coffee beans for my flat white from different regions of the globe. The young lad...on the counter is always really friendly, so big up to him as well. Would definitely recommend, far better than the chains.More
