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.

Wonderful place to go for coffee. Impressed by the welcome and atmosphere and what this place has achieved in 10 years. So much more than a cafe.

What a lovely, vibrant and welcoming place to visit whether you want to meet new people or have a quiet brew. The cafe is run by volunteers and provides help and support to the local community as well as being somewhere you can learn new...arts and crafts. The food was delicious and service excellent! We will be back!More

Thanks so much for your encouraging review, it makes such a difference to us and I'll share this with our volunteers.

This is by far the best cafe in Bolton. You can expect great home-cooked good, to -die-for-cakes and the warmest of welcomes by the attentive volunteers! A great place to lunch with friends over a delicious meal or just a coffee and a cake. It...is also great value for money. The ambience of the place is amazing and you can shop for unique hand crafted gifts made by local potters, artists and creators at very reasonable prices! There are many different craft classes available too some of which are free (but they welcome a donation to cover costs if you are able to). Would highly recommend this oasis of peace and calm in Bolton Town Centre!More

I have done many workshops and classes here. I found them very creative and enjoyable. The volunteers and staff are fabulous. Recently I have done a pottery class with Andy Lee having never done it before, it was great. Great value for money with a...brilliant teacher, would recommend to anyone. The cafe is great and great value. Lovely food.More

Joy and Andrew are brilliant and so attentive, making sure we had everything we needed. They even let us put candles in the (DELICIOUS) cake for a birthday we were celebrating! The cafe has a fantastic atmosphere and we were so well looked after.

Having been here a few times to have a coffee, do some work, and once to do a bit of spontaneous pottery... I cannot recommend this cafe strongly enough! If the warm welcome, smiles and excellent customer service are not enough then the epic cake...will surely make it a worthwhile experience! I am coming back this month with some of my colleagues and cannot wait!More

We visited on a Saturday afternoon with a group of friends. We had a lovely range of food from cheese pies, meat pie, soup and cheesy toast and cornedbeef hash with home grown pickled beetroot and pickled onions. Top ups for our tea and coffee...too witg lovely jam and cream scones and the price was really good. Would definitely recommend if you are in Bolton on a Friday or Saturday. We will definitely be returning very soonMore

We visited on Saturday afternoon with family and friends. My choice was the homemade cheese & onion pie, absolutely gorgeous. Other members had homemade scones with jam and cream. There are handmade gifts for sale, all of a very high standard of workmanship. Cafe Create...is well worth a visit.More

Wonderful atmosphere and a great place to meet up with friends and family; a welcome for all! Lunches are excellent - reasonably priced and a good range. My favourite; jacket potatoes with chicken, crispy bacon and mayo - complete with a nice side salad- all...served with love and humour by a great team of enthusiastic and caring volunteers.More
