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 lived in great Denham for two years and I'm ashamed to say this was the first time using The Eatery cafe but it certainly won't be the last! I missed the cut off point the day before for a takeaway roast dinner but I cheekily messaged on Sunday morning to see if they had any spares and fortunately for me they did and it was the Roast lamb I was really wanting! I brought it home and warmed it up following instructions on the tray, it smelled amazing just taking it out of the oven. Everything was beautifully seasoned and tasted amazing, probably the best roast dinner I've ever had and all in the comfort of my home. Would 100% recommend The Eatery and their lovely roast dinners!

We've enjoyed a number of lovely brunches here - and always recommend it to friends/family. It can get busy quickly, so it's best to arrive early on weekends to secure a table. We love their avocado/poached eggs on toast, which is the best in Bedford! The selection of vegan cakes and sweet treats has always been great too. Sometimes you can be waiting a little while for the food but we don't mind waiting as we know it's worth it!

Our order came out in the wrong order & with a slight error.They could’ve been apologetic or friendly about it but server seemed more interested to move onto his next job. Had two little one with us so didn’t bother making my point The lady on the till was nice though

I am really disappointed, came in for a quick stop off to order a takeaway baguette for lunch. Was told when I ordered and paid £6 for a ham, cheese and salad baguette that there was “a little wait on food” which I said was fine and expected a 10/15 minute wait maximum as the shop wasn’t even at full capacity. After around 25 minutes I asked for an update as I had been waiting for so long only to be told again it would be another 10/15 minutes. When I finally received my food I had been waiting for over half an hour and wasn’t offered any form of compensation when I questioned why it had taken this long to prepare a cold baguette. I feel that for a price tag of £6 this just isn’t acceptable.

Over a 45 minute wait to get a sandwich! Had Club sandwich, bacon and chicken, came back home and had stomach pains all afternoon so either something not cooked right or the mayo isn't refrigerated. The sauces were on the side in the restaurant and when squeezed onto plate the mayo was very watery, so likely it was off. Won't be returning.

Visited for a post parkrun coffee and cake, which were good. We expected the understandably long queue and a wait for a table; however, did not forsee a 45 minute delay between paying and receiving our order, frankly appalling service. Will give it a miss next time.

Lovely little place. Very welcoming with a good selection for brekkie. Slightly more expensive than other places but lovely quality food, so worth it. Only thing is that it was freezing in there and had to sit with my coat on! The fire door at the back was propped open so it was soo cold! But otherwise a lovely visit

Lovely coffee, relaxing atmosphere and friendly staff - plus cheap prices to top it all off! In addition, a great range of food and cakes that all looks fresh and tasty.

Love the look and feel of this place. Very modern, warm and rustic layout with a simple menu and amazing coffee. The owner is passionate and this is reflected all around the place. The menu is a little pricey and servings on the smaller side but everything Ive had is cooked fresh and tastes really good. I really love it here and make excuses to drive out to visit.

Been here many a time. Service prompt and staff friendly. Come for the breakfast but stay for the delicious milkshakes and cakes.

If like me you want to steer away from the stale franchise coffee-shops and support independent business then look no further than the Eatery. I have been coming here since it opened and I must say that I love this place. Yes it can get busy at times but that's a testament to the great food and friendly staff. The decor is stylish and modern and it's a nice place to pitch up during the day to fire off a few emails over coffee and cake (which there is always a good variety). My regular go-to dish is toasted sourdough with avocado and eggs and as a frequent customer I'm often asked if I'd like the usual! I also recommend the full breakfast (sausages are delicious!) as well as Eggs Benedict. Unfortunately due to the quality of the aforementioned I've not tried the rest of the menu... yet! The specials board is also a nice touch as a small independent like this can't constantly reinvent their main menu. Overall I love this place as has great food/coffee and is a cosy place to relax. I have to give a special mention to Narinder, Ranj and their staff as they are always cheerful and extremely helpful. If you haven't visited yet, give them a go and support local business! (Can you tell I hate Starbucks/Costa??)
