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.

Never been before but had high expectations, from feedback from friends & family. Was not disappointed. Served by a lovely young lady, great surprise as I used to look after her years ago ! Pancakes were delicious with generous portion of bacon. Excellent americano coffee,...I have personal bugbear of 3/4 filled cups or mugs. This was fully filled. Great fun experience and will definitely returnMore

I have always been a big fan of Merkins. The staff are always very friendly and accommodating. However today I was not sure if due to cost pressures there has been a marginal change. The prices have been adjusted upwards recently which to a degree...is understandable. I had the Onion Bhaji burger, which was OK. However the portion sizes of both the burger and fries and even the coleslaw seem to have been minimised, and the with price of 14.95 in line with meat options. So from a value money standpoint I am not sure this was great, hence the rating.More

Visited today, as we live local we have been quiet a few times before. Today we met friends from Radstock who’s first time here. Everyone was impressed with the quality of the food. As a group of four we have tried various other farm shops...throughout Bath, Radstock, Trowbridge area and this has been the best. The staff are also so friendly and efficient. The cafe/restaurant was reasonably busy with a steady turnover the whole time we were there. The food was hot, tasty and good quality, the cake selection divine. Will certainly be visiting again soon.More

Fantastic service from all the staff. Holly and Abbie were super lovely and made us feel welcome and went above and beyond. The food was so fresh and delicious. I will definitely be visiting again for sure, a beautiful hidden spot.

Absolutely fantastic! Service brilliant even though very busy I’m particular about how my breakfast is cooked and asked for this when ordering. Breakfast was cooked to perfection and absolutely fantastic!

Very much “Emperor’s New Clothes”. As in people just like it because everyone else likes it. We found it to be pretty average. First thing was the wait to be seated. Almost ten minutes stood at the door. Nobody even took the time to acknowledge...that we were there. Would have taken a member of staff ten seconds to pop over and say that they would be with us shortly, but the “hooray Henry” staff were far too busy wandering around trying to be important. Seating was a reclaimed school table with both seats facing a wall. We accepted it because our previous visit has been very positive. I honestly wish we’d thanked them very much and left there and then. Too many people taking an hour to have a coffee and trying to feel like they’re part of the country set. Service was polite but slow. Food was ok, well cooked and presented, but not worth the £30+ bill for two breakfasts and two drinks. We are by absolutely no means near to the bread line or wanting for a quid or two, but that doesn’t mean we like to throw away money. I just think the whole experience was average and we won’t be hurrying back. We probably aren’t welcome after this review anyway. Shame because previous visit has been good.More

Beautiful rural cafe / restaurant set on a small country lane on the outskirts of Bradford on Avon. Ample parking. Sympathetically converted farm building blended with modern characterful extension. Helpful and efficient young staff. Our breakfasts were excellent, although bagel was slightly disappointing. Very popular...so very busy, this caused the place to be unpleasantly loud as the sound resonates from all the hard surfaces, some sound deadening surfaces would be beneficial. We also had a beautiful country walk directly after our breakfast. GreatMore

Lovely setting, friendly and efficient staff. Several vegan cake options and plant milks available. Would have given 5 stars but the 'background' music is too loud. My personal preference is for no background music, partly as it affects my tinnitus, partly because I feel it's...unnecessary. I suspect many customers would prefer no background music.More

I love Merkins. Always serving high quality food, well staffed, rural setting with a beautifully decorated interior. Nothing is too much trouble for Holly and the rest of the team. We both tend to go for a breakfast and milkshake - such good value for...money (not expensive!) and have never left hungry after a few visits. Can’t wait to come back already! JJ & RoseMore

I visited on Sunday and was greeted by a fabulous atmosphere and beautiful festive decor. The cafe itself has a wonderful atmosphere full of lovely staff happy to serve you and to make sure you have a wonderful experience. It was really busy! But added...to the nice atmosphere- Our food and drinks came out quick and I was surprised how big the standard breakfast was. My friend ordered the pancakes which were huge and she struggled to finish them. The coffees looked amazing not that I tried one. I cant wait to visit again- Great value for money for such a lovely atmosphere and great food. Thank you everyone at MerkinsMore

Opted for the farmers breakfast which was delicious, and you could mix and match things if you have an allergy. The only thing I’d say, is the extra sausage is a bit strange, but all in all very yummy!! Coffee was delicious and the banana...milkshake is huge and very yummy. Well worth the visit!More
