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.

At first, I thought that £10.95 was a bit ott until I saw the portion sizes. The food was first rate and the service was excellent. The atmosphere was good and they are dog friendly as well. The friendly staff were very helpful and efficient.

Large menu for such a small place. We both settled on the panini that came with coleslaw and a fresh well dressed salad. Staff were friendly and prices reasonable so recommended.

Totally surprised by the wide, innovative and varied menu including vegan options. It was very busy so we were lucky to get a table. Our food was delicious and the staff were very friendly and welcoming. The downsides were the clutter, the artificial flowers, the...annoying piped music and the gents' toilets that need a complete makeover.More

We ate here on our last morning in the area. We had tried to get in for lunch the previous day but they were full and as a party of 9 there was no squeezing us in! We then booked for the next morning and...all had a lovely breakfast. There was plenty of choice and it was served fresh and very tasty!More

Popped in as we’d spotted an empty table outside. Excellent service to go with a very delicious scone. Really lovely place which is well worth a visit.

This cafe is a must visit place in Allonby. The staff are super friendly, quality coffee and the homemade food is delicious. During our recent holiday we went many times and the standard was consistently excellent. Even on the wettest of days, myself and one...very soggy dog were made welcome. It gets very busy so, if you are planning a visit, booking ahead is recommended.More

We were here about five years ago but it was great to return. Friendly staff and wonderful food, in fact we were spoilt for choice. Offered a hot water top up and more milk without question for the tea. Would go out of my way...to go here.More

What a great find. We were lucky to book a table for lunch. The service was good and the food was very good, arriving quickly and well presented. We had two vegans in our party and they were catered for better than most eating places...you would find. Highly recommended!More

We had a wonderful lunch, bacon & black pudding baguettes, at the Allonby Tea Room and Gift Shop - very tasty. We would have liked to have sampled the cakes, that other reviewers have commented on but we were just too full. The staff were...extremely welcoming, friendly and there is a "home from home" atmosphere. The tea room is dog friendly and we thought it extremely good value for money. The tea room is a must visit when you are in the area.More

Lovely little tea / cafe shop on the seafront. Great food and super friendly staff. A little jewel if you are passing by. Allonby is a rather unfashionable seaside town with a history of herring fishing. Beautiful beaches and far from the crowds.
