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.

Sadly having ordered the overpriced 'Breakfast Special' I was served with an average breakfast which had a heap of incinerated bacon on it. The happy go lucky staff would maybe be better focusing on service than chatting between themselves. A good location will not always...guarantee returning business. Put me right off a returnMore

Love coming to Bothy. A word of warning, there does always seem to be a queue however, it does move quickly and the wait in the queue is made up for by the fact that you don’t wait long for your food. Really nice relaxed...atmosphere, delicious hot food and buns, well worth a visit.More

Awful place. The ramp for disabled access was blocked by cars, I couldn’t see a disabled parking space in to be blunt a muddy horrible type of carpark. I had to go up one step with no handrails at all. The place itself is a...shack, the so called music being played was nothing but bass dance music and gave me a headache. I spent £3 on an americano that was the size of a thimble ffs!!! I tried to see disabled toilets but could only see normal toilets. Avoid like the plague absolute hole!More

I’ve been here many times, and it’s hit and miss. Sometimes I go and have amazing food and drinks, other times it’s just average food and the drinks are not hot and can taste different. I also find I’m treated differently when I’m in with...friends (all adult) vs when I bring my kids in. Don’t think the lady that runs it/owns it always has the best attitude and it can put a dampener on it all. I’d say although it has a board game or two it’s not so child friendly. It would be great if they nailed down the consistency of when they do get it right as it has great potential.More

Popped in yesterday on our way back from Carrick a Rede. Lovely homely atmosphere, great wait staff and a great menu. We only wanted coffee but couldn’t resist two pieces of cake. Very reasonably priced too

We happened across this place while looking for shelter from the rain and we’re so glad! It is a wonderful cafe. We ended up going back the next day because we liked it so much. Day 1, we got coffee and snacks-all great. Day 2,...we had bfast there and it was wonderful. The inside is warm and toasty and then the covered back part allows dogs and includes a resident cat. The whole place is very nicely decorated, the servers were very nice, and the WCs were very nice. What a great place!More

After wanting to try here for sometime now I finally got the chance. It did not disappoint, considering we arrived in the peak Saturday morning rush staff were polite, professional and under control, nothing was a hassle. The food was just incredible, fresh, tasty, portions...ample and beautifully presented. Flat white was like velvet, latte art was exquisite. Cannot wait for my next return. Hats off Bothy coffee, amazing spotMore
