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.

We visited this cafe in the 1980’s and was happy to still see it there. It has gone a bit more upmarket since we last visited. I preferred how it was more traditional. We had to wait outside and then there is a seating area...you sit to wait for a table, it’s a bit awkward as you are facing other customers eating whilst you sit and watch them. The food we had was tasty and the drinks were nice but it was £30 for soup and a sandwich with a drink so not cheap. What I didn’t like was whilst we sat by the door waiting for our table watching other customers eat, we and other waiting customers we were never acknowledged or said hello to, it’s only a little thing but to be made to feel welcome is so important. Would I visit again? No I think I’ll keep my happy memories from the 80’s 😂More

We went into the Hazlemere for lunch, and were pleasantly surprised to find that they did a traditional Sunday roast. Four of us ordered the small roast beef, and it was delicious, and very good value. The beef was beautifully pink, and we got 3...generous slices each with a Yorkshire pudding and all the trimmings. An absolute must for us in future whenever we are in Grange.More

Service and food is slow, I was wanting to catch my train so asked for the bill, the girl said she was inputting orders first. If my train had not been late, I could well have missed it, and would have had to wait another...hour. The Coffee is not excellent, just average, like one made by a tea shack, and it is not obvious where the Wi-fi access details are for you to check train times, for example...

We stopped into this traditional tea room on a recommendation from a local who told us about Grange-over-sands last year, and they said you'll have the best fish and chips ever at Grange-over-sands, a tall order to top as I've had some amazing fish and...chips in my time. When I say traditional tea room, I don't mean that tired, old fashioned post war England Tea Room, I mean, traditional in the sense they offer amazing teas, coffees, cakes and pastries and hot/cold food. What makes this restaurant special is their attention to the smallest of details, like, individually wrapped butter pats l, and the butter is at room temperature so it actually spreads. All the food is beautifully presented on quality earthenware, the staff are polite, engaging and friendly, they make you feel valued. So, the food. I had the small portion fish and chips.....wow, beautiful, white, flakey haddock wrapped in light and crispy batter, homemade, Chunky tartar sauce, homemade mushy peas and crispy/fluffy chips, gorgeous. My partner had the grilled peach and Feta salad, a huge bowl full of goodness. The decor and atmosphere of this tea room is modern yet somehow traditional, fresh and immaculately clean. Can you guess that I loved this place, I did. They did everything perfectly, very rare today. We actually made a special detour of 25 miles to go here, and we weren't disappointed, you won't be either, GO!!More
