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.

The food is basic, just a stop over for a quick cuppa, tray break or microwaved sausage roll . That sort of place. Satisfactory for what it is but don't expect a proper quaint coffee shop with a substantial lunch. There are also a few...outside tables where dogs are allowed. We went on a rainy day in October but I would expect it to be very busy on a different day. Covid restriction were good..screens, plastic cutlery and take away cups. The staff used tongs to pick up the tray bakes which I always prefer. It is ten minutes walk from the car park so you could spend a little time feeding the duck before setting of on you walk. The staff member was exceptionally helpful and friendly.More

This is a simple pleasant-enough cafe with both indoor and outdoor seating. Coffee was rather weak: a range of cakes available. Family friendly Good attention paid to hygiene - important post-pandemic. The use of disposable crockery is unfortunate but understandable

My partner and I had a 10km walk in the Silent Valley Reservoir and had lunch and tea at the coffee shop after the walk. We were trying to call our Cab to pick us up but our Eire phone did not allow to call...a Northern Irish landline for some reason, and the staff allowed us to use their landline so we could actually leave the place :) That was lovely from them! Very much appreciated, thank you so much. The panini was also lovely. I wish I had space after it for an ice cream :) Hope to be back soon, the location is stunning!More

This is a simple coffee shop in the gorgeous Silent Valley Park. We just had some coffee and scones which were good. Staff were very nice and its a nice stop on the many walks around the park.

The cafe is in a beautiful location, sent valley definitely needs a cafe. The prices are not expensive, however, I don't believe the food is worth the price. A toastie is £3.95 - this is for a toastie and a few crisps, no salad /...coleslaw etc.More

Was pleasantly surprised that the cafe was open on New Year's Day. Some of our party had vegetable soup and wheaten bread and the others sausage rolls. The food was very tasty and the lady who served us couldn't have been nicer.

It’s a very pleasantly and efficiently run cafe. They have a wide range of savoury and sweet dishes. They also offer a good range of drinks, and on a warm day like today there are tables to sit at outside.

As many others returning to the cafe after the 6 mile walk along the reservoirs is very welcoming. The selection of food sandwiches and hot drinks are very good. They have a unique selection of flavoured scones, white chocolate and raspberry, mint aero and what...we thought was cheese and chutney ended up being a mars bar scone ! Honestly truely unique and worth a visit.More

One of my favourite spots in Kilkeel such a lovely place to sit and have a bite to eat and a coffee . The kids won’t be disappointed as there is plenty of space for them to run about.. 🤗 Also a Museum is close...to the restaurant filled with the History of the Silent valley which is very interesting 😊 Suitable for all ages. Cafe offers a variety of foods & refreshments. 😍 very tasty. PMore
