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.

Visited with my youngest daughter for a treat while she's home from uni. Been here a couple of times before & we love it. The atmosphere is lovely & the decor is gorgeous, lots of things to see. We had roast beef Sunday dinner &...we can whole heartedly say, every single element of it was absolutely done to perfection, especially the gravy (&plenty of it)! We were full but greedy, so both had the crumble on offer (one apple & berries, the other pear & maple syrup) both with custard, oh my days they were both beautiful. 2 happy customers again. Thank you, we will be back 😊More

Visited here several times over the years. The food is usually good quality and the portion sizes are too. Had the Chicken Kebab Main Meal today, but there was only 4 (yes, 4), pieces of chicken, about 1" sq in size, with some salad leaves,...1 cherry tomato cut in half, a smattering of roasted peppers/onion on a small flatbread (dairy free offering), and a small bucket of fries, all for £18. Really not worth the money at all, and so disappointing.More

Visited for first time, ordered salmon salad and a glass of wine at a cost of £30. The poached salmon was very cold and had obviously been sat in the fridge for some time. En route home ( 22 mile drive) I experienced stomach cramps...and had a very upset tummy on my return home. Contacted Stydd to provide feedback. I didn’t think I had food poisoning as the gastric disturbance cleared up after a couple of hours but non the less was an unpleasant experience that I felt sure was attributable to my lunch. I thought the Stydd should be informed as other customers may have had a similar experience. The initial response was fine and I was told that the chef would be informed. However when the chef rang me he was extremely defensive said the salmon had been stored for 1 day had been ‘probed’ and ‘logged’ and he would keep cold salmon stored for 3 days, he did not offer an apology and suggested I consider what I’d eaten the night before! I informed him his customer care was poor and he should appreciate feedback which he eventually acknowledged. I don’t regret visiting the Stydd but do regret providing feedback needless to say both left me with a degree of discomfort!More

Really love coming here, it's always busy though - especially outside on a nice day and cosy inside with the heaters on in winter. The food is always of a high standard and never disappoints, service is always quick and attentive too . Highly recommended.

Amazing food in a beautiful relaxed setting 🥰 we had the Christmas menu which I thought was very good value. Gemma managed to add 2 friends to our table last minute for which we were very grateful 🙏 The food was outstanding & lots of...it served on hot plates (which is my bug bear in other restaurants). We will be going for breakfast next week. Thank you guys for a lovely evening.More

Ribchester resident. Not been here for a few years. Reserved a family of six for lunch recently. Arrived, saw menu and left. I eat out all the time, I go to Michelin restaurants and high end restaurants Not irregularly and expect to be charged for...quality food and dining. But this doesn't mean I won't engage my brains or will pay any amount of money regardless of what I get in return. £18 for a ciabatta and £6 for a bowl of chips from a cafe kitchen? If you don't see a problem with this, you have money but no sense.More

Lovely surroundings. Overpriced food. Ham sandwich and tiny cup of tea over £14. Sandwich must have been two inches think. Could have used it to prop the door open in a gale. Nice ham though. Asked for a sweetener for my tiny cup of tea...to be told these are not supplied by the cafe. When paying I was asked if everything had been ok. The cashier seemed surprised when I explained my disappointment. Doubt I will return.More

This place has gone downhill recently. The prices are far too high and the manager and one of the staff very off hand. I will not be returning. The cake place there far better prices and helpful staff. IMO. No provision for sitting outside on...a sunny day which would be safer health wise.More

We came for lunch yesterday at the glasshouse, the food was delicious as to be expected. The waitress that sat us to our table does a disservice to your establishment. Rude, unfriendly and I think a smile is not in her repertoire perhaps a front...of house job not the best fit. We would return for the food but not the service which is a shame.More

Just a quick visit for us. A lovely quirky place. The coffee was very good and the scones with butter, jam and clotted cream were excellent. The scones had that “just out of the oven” taste. We thought the prices were on the high side....The staff were very pleasant.More

Booked a table earlier for a Wedneday for a late lunch. I’m glad we did. We arrived to find every outside table taken. Really busy, but seated at a lovely table within 2 minutes. Drinks were offered and served within five minutes and then left...to pick from the menu. Time was perfect for the maitre d’ to return to take our meal order. We ordered a ham sandwich and a ‘posh fish butty’. Both plates came in good time, accompanied by a lovely fresh salad, bowl of chips and a really tasty home-made coleslaw, served by pleasant young waitresses. The food was Delicious! Obviously the place is really popular so booking ahead is advisable for peak times. Overall, food was delicious and plentiful, staff were pleasant and attentive and surroundings were beautiful with the gardens well kept and flowers in full bloom. We will definitely return.
