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.

The Serenity Cafe provides a resource ( in theory) for those experiencing moderate to high functioning mental health issues. I had been encouraged to go to one of thier social evenings by my support worker. The evening was given over to inane games such as...'identify the sweet' and conducted in a way to discourage people interacting with each other or interacting with staff. The emphasis seemed to be getting the whole awful experience over and done with in the shortest time possible. An utterly abysmal experience devoid of imagination or value. I will go again to see if things have changed in any way and update. David.More

Serenity’s is a local community cafe in Upper Parkstone, between Bournemouth and Poole. All their profits are ploughed back in to the charities they support, including addiction. It’s a family and dog friendly place, with a very positive atmosphere - - and excellent food, both...hot and cold (their eggy-bread with bacon & tomato is simply superb - and there are the usual veggie options too. There are even a couple of pc’s available for public use - so you have the benefits of an Internet cafe, with much better catering..! All in all, a great place to stop (on street parking outside) for breakfast, brunch, lunch and afternoon tea - until 4:00 pm.More

True to its name, the decor and vibe here are cool and calm. However, having waited more than 20 minutes for cold drink, and more than 30 for sandwiches, I'm afraid we were feeling anything but serene by the time we left! Staff didn't seem...to know what they were doing and, despite telling us they were 'very busy' they didn't show any sense of urgency. Maybe too relaxed? To be fair, the food was fine when it did arrive and portions were generous.More

Twenty minute wait for a couple of drinks which wasn’t what I ordered, but weather too warm to have a moan about it, and a cake, not that busy either. Pleasant enough surroundings but wouldn’t return tbh.

My mum and I stopped for a late lunch after spotting the clean looking outside of the cafe and the handy parking right in front. I had a smoked salmon salad, served with lime mayo and slices of bread, along with a berry smoothy, whilst...mum had a bacon & chicken club sandwich. Both were freshly made, incredibly tasty and HUGE! We'll definitely pop back.More
