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.

The waiter serving us during both visits was friendly and attentive, the breakfast’s were fabulous with lovely thick cut bacon and the duck eggs were delicious. Very generous portions and they were happy to alter our dishes when we had a request or two. The...coffee was amazing, including fresh chocolate in the Mocha. We will definitely be back to eat breakfast here again the next time we visit Ventnor!More

We were looking for a dog friendly place to have lunch and fell upon The Kitchen at London House. It is a beautiful Bistro for you to be able to dine in with the option of having takeaway items right next door. The food was...tasty and wholesome and the service was friendly and had a family feel to it. If you are ever in Ventnor it is a must visit if you want to experience a warm and welcoming environment while enjoying some food with your partner, family or canine companion. They were very accommodating for our four years old son who just wanted a sausage sandwich rather than something from the extensive menu - we will definitely visit again!More

Lunched here with my friend on a cold winters day. The welcome was very warm and friendly and the chatter of our host waiter very humorous. Food was splendid with home made breads, traditional recipe soup and paired with fabulous wine if you ask. The...menu is slightly French but not pretentious or overpriced . There’s the added bonus of duck eggs for breakfast til 3pm. I just wish I could visit more often so I could try more of the delicious food ❤️More
