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.

Staff are nice but tech is awful. What coffee shop these days doesn’t have a healthy supply of plugs? But that’s not my main complaint. Since 2022, this location has not had any wifi. Apparently the staff have complained to management but they ‘just don’t...give a damn’. Wake up! It’s 2024!!!More

We always go here for our coffee treat - the atmosphere is comfortable and welcoming and all the staff are friendly. The coffee’s good too!

I called in on a busy Saturday and the line was to the door. I decided to stick it out and found the staff to be very efficient in taking and delivering orders. My coffee and pastry were above average. Overall: a good branch of...this generally good chain.More

The place looks pleasant and the food etc well displayed. And that draws you in. Don’t bother. The service is at best indifferent, the staff devoid of manners and the ability to ignore you offensive. The hot drinks served in disposable cups and the food...I will never return to try.More

Long queue, poor staff, could only have a take out cup to drink in - if you get kids who are unsupervised to run your coffee shop you’ll let the standards plummet. Kids can’t be bothered to wash up - I would give the place...a wide berth.More

Love going in here for the friendly staff and good coffee. However...I was shocked today to find out Rebecca did not make her probation. She was simply one of the best staff members there, and was one of the main reasons for my visits. She...was always very polite,courteous,professional and an asset to the cafe. Why oh why have management got rid of an excellent member of staff?? It simply does not make sense.More

Weekday visit. A Thursday. Late morning. Two ladies serving. Short-staffed as tables full of unwashed cups and plates where people had been sitting ..but when trying to clear up...oh ..it was literally as if they were throwing ceramic mugs into a ceramic sink. Smash, crash,...bang. All customers stopped drinking coffee, neither of the two ladies seemed to have any clue about the noise they were making. The couple nearest us were aghast with the noise and shook their heads bowing not to come again. No care or apparent knowledge re: noise or how heavy-handed they were. Awful experience and female manager there can be quite blunt. Not a nice experience. Won't be going back..shame as coffee was good.More

My car in for service today, so had 2 trips to Coffee #1. First visit was for breakfast. Banana and cinnamon porridge, with little pot of honey on the side. Delicious. Washed down with pot of English breakfast tea. Tea is always good here with...proper leaves in a pot. After passing time wandering around town, returned for a lovely vanilla latte and salted caramel slice. Coffee was lovely. Slice, thought it may be over sweet, but no, it was lovely balanced flavour. Staff are always very friendly. Atmosphere always feels relaxed. Definitely my favourite place to relax and spend time in Newbury.More

Weak coffee and very slow service. The time to get a coffee hear has always been bad and it does not improve. Coffee is very watery due to cheap coffee beans and no passion for coffee.

I normally would go to Pret or Costa but I thought I'd ring the changes and grab a coffee in Coffee #1. Bad decision. The coffee shop itself looked nice with a good selection of cakes and a good selection of coffees. Then it went...downhill. I requested the special brew filter coffee but was told there was no filter coffee available so it would need to be an Americano. Fair enough, I guess. However, the Americano that was served was the most watery, insipid and tasteless coffee I have ever had (and I have a lot). I then went to a table and had to get a tray to clear the accumulation of cups, litter and plates. It's such a shame as I do like to support different coffee shops but I'm afraid Coffee #1 was a bit of a letdown. I have added one coloured circle for the selection of cakes (even though I didn't have one)More

This cafe has THE loveliest baristas, and has long been a favourite of mine and my French Bulldog, Pudding, (who adores the place). Great selection of food and drink, and a lovely place to visit, even during the lockdown periods. I want to point out...that this cafe would not have survived without the efforts and skill of Alex, who is the life and soul of the place. Having worked in a cafe for many years myself, I doubt she gets the recognition she deserves, but she kept that cafe afloat and full of positivity during some of the toughest of Covid times. The service is great, the hygiene is great and the coffee is great....Pudding loves you Alex! You're a diamond! I never leave reviews normally, but, after seeing some of the negative ones, I wanted to throw my hat in the ring and offer my opinion, as a customer of this establishment for years.More

I came into this coffee shop during the week, only to be greeted by a young woman with a broken arm in a sling, not only was she writhing in pain but she was having to clean the shop and serve coffee to other customers,...this is complete negligence of the manager/assistant managers part and a huge health and safety concern, not only for the employee but for the customers, absolutely appalled that she is even working at all as it is quite clear she should be at home resting and not having to do her job one handed.. disgusting behaviour from management and you should be ashamed of yourselvesMore

Still no cash accepted even with lockdown lifting. Not very well advertised to say this, should at least have sign by till and not in small writing on a board. Poor customer service
