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.

As usual the café was really busy, but this is a testament to the quality of the food also the friendliness of the staff, they work so hard to make sure that the food and drinks are served as quick as possible without losing quality,...please remember they can only go as fast as the cooking allows, if it is exceptionally busy they do give you a time scale for your food, it is then up to you if you wait or not (we always do, as do others for the lovely food), we'll done to all for your fantastic service and food, we will 100% be back again, and constantly recommend you to all our friends and family 🥰😁😋More

Waited 57minutes for sandwich’s in the cafe what an absolute joke!! Had to get a refund for 2 of the sandwiches as what they brought out wasn’t even edible!! Ordered a bacon spam and tomato they brought me a bread cake out with 1 slice...of bacon the thinnest piece of spam I’m talking paper thin. We was sat in the cafe for 57minutes everyone was getting there food before us even tho we had ordered before them tried to speak to the owner about the situation as I wasn’t happy at all wouldn’t speak telling another member of staff to sort it! Absolutely disgusting customer service and the food was even worst! I will not be entering the cafe again it’s absolutely appalling how we’ve just been tret! Your ok taking peoples money you should be doing peoples orders in line absolute joke. Doing peoples orders first because you knew them ect we are all paying customersMore

Great spot for breakfast came here when visiting the carboot sale held here. The large breakfast exceptional value for money. The standard breakfast i personally felt it needed more items has there was no tomatoes, hash browns. Or mushrooms but for the price it was...still very nice. The toast however was burnt and thick in butter not how i like it and not cut either.More

We have been eating at Tim's bistro for nearly 2yrs now whilst attending the car boot. Great food and good prices...nothing too much trouble for the wonderful staff who make us all feel welcome. Always friendly banter and a great atmosphere. Always busy and runs...like clockwork. ❤More

Tim catered for 30 of our guests offering a range of options. We ordered the meals to go (in advance) and they were all hot and fresh and thoroughly enjoyed by everyone. Steak pie was full of meat, quiche was super tasty, beef sandwich amazing...with tender meat. Cakes are varied and all is excellent value.More

At the Great Car Boot slae which happens each Sunday and went for our usual Fried Egg sandwich and Bacon and Mushroom. This is one of the best fried egg sandwiches, bread lovely and soft and eggs (you get 2) nice a runny. Hubby loves...the Bacon and mushroom as well. Really good value for money and great to see Tim using the new types of boxes.More

Friendly, attentive service. Ordered fish finger sandwiches and very pleased with them when they arrived. We sat in a conservatory area which proved a bit noisy but the noise was down to clientele rather than staff.

Went on my dinner hour with two colleagues, ordered a half pound burger no cheese no sauce as im allergic to cheese. My order arrived with cheese and sauce I told the staff who apologised and said they would bring another which they did. This...time it had no sauce but still had cheese. Again I explained my order to them, again they apologised and said they would bring another, 2 mins later another was brought I thought it was quick as the last time it took 10 mins to cook and bring to me. When they put it on the table I saw some cheese on the side of the burger so I lifted the bread of turned the top patty over and saw that they had just scraped the cheese off leaving lots of cheese on the patty and then put it back upside down hoping I wouldn't notice. IM ALLERGIC TO CHEESE. This is horrendous customer service and a shocking insight into how they cut corners what else do they cut corners on ?????More

Hadn't visited Thrope Arch in many years and found the Cafe Bistro to be the only place left open, but what a great place. Lovely staff, great service and wonderful food at great prices. Will be going back on my next visit to Wetherby

The only thing I would say is the gravy may contain gluten but everything else on a Sunday lunch should be easy to have without gluten. Contact place directly as I’ve never had a Sunday lunch with them.
