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.

This is a lovey place to eat. I am vegetarian. It was so refreshing to have such a choice on the menu. Usually I am limited to about one and it’s rarely anything I particularly like. If I see another “goats cheese tart” as my...only option when eating out I might just 😡🤬😤. None of that here, all great choices for vegans. Lovely people working there, very friendly. Thank you.More

Visited with a couple of friends today. Our waitress was very nice and helpful. Food was really good, especially the steamed puddings. Although the weather was poor we had a lovely visit and will come back for sure.

Would definitely recommend Wilfred’s. The staff were very friendly and helpful and service was quick. We had tea and cake and there was a great choice of both, including my favourite masala chai. The food menu had plenty of choice and the food we saw...other customers eating looked great.More

We spotted this lovely little cafe whilst walking along one of the many cobbled streets and so pleased we did t walk by. Service was speedy and food was delicious. Dog friendly which is nice to see. I would definitely recommend this place for breakfast...and I can imagine the other meals offered would be equally as good.More

Fantastic find. Lovely little place that’s dog friendly too! We had a breakfast each that was really well priced! Lovely people serving and very welcoming Watch out for the add ons though! When it says add bacon or hash brown or black pudding for £1.50/60...it means just that! You get 1 piece for your money! One hash brown or 1 piece of bacon/ black pud for that price seems really steep! Stick to the main one and you’ll get a really great breakfast at a decent price!More
