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.

Called in for tea and cake this afternoon. The staff were friendly, the tea was spot on and my coconut and lime cake was delicious! Highly recommended.

Very small, perhaps room for 8 people, at the back of the shop but with a couple of tables outside. Tea, coffee, hot chocolate to drink, excellent cheese scones and fresh homemade cakes (slices). First rate service paying attention to detail (eg cleaning the cake...knife between cutting cakes)More

We enjoyed a full flavoured espresso and an Americano in this compact but lovely cafe. Had a good chat with the owner who invited us to take in the wonderful aroma of a couple of the teas which are available.

I popped in this morning after the place was recommended by a friend. My dog generally goes everywhere I go & I wasn’t sure they’d let her in but thought I’d ask. She couldn’t go in the shop or inside the cafe, which is fair...enough, but the ladies were really kind, unlocking a gate so we could go round to a nice little courtyard & sit outside together. Their latte was really smooth & the coconut cake delicious! They also kindly provided a dog bowl of fresh water, a must in this heat! What a lovely little cafe, with good coffee & cake & great customer service. I’ll be back!More

We popped in to this cafe tucked at the back of the antiques centre after reading positive feedback on TA. There was a delicious looking selection of cakes under glass and a blackboard menu offering savoury choices too. We were very warmly welcomed and both...chose toasted plum bread with butter (2 generous slices each!) I had a huge pot of tea there were at least 3 large cups poured and my partner had a cappuccino, again a very generous sized cup. The plum bread was just delicious with creamy butter melting into the toasty top, just yummy!More

In the centre of Navenby village the Lounge Cafe is situated in Navenby Antiques Centre. This is a fantastic cafe with helpful and friendly staff, serving great coffee (and a wide range of teas), cakes and light lunches. There's a courtyard garden for sunny days.

The food here is always wonderfully laid out and very fresh. Oh boy are the cakes yummy. Have a look at the fantastic array of antiques books pictures etc then have a well earned tea or coffee where the staff are attentive yet leave you...to enjoy your rest. We love having lunch here or afternoon tea.More

... a great combination! This is a fairly small but interesting antiques centre. The café is especially tiny, but makes a very welcome break from browsing. We enjoyed really excellent coffee and very pleasant service. The home-made cakes looked wonderful: next time I'll be sure...to get here less close to lunch time!More

Navenby is a pretty village with a delightful antiques centre. There are lots of rooms in which to browse and admire the objects for sale, even if you don't purchase. The coffee shop at the back serves freshly made beverages and offers a tempting range...of delicious cakes and scones (the two cakes we shared were very good), as well as savoury choices such as soup and sandwiches. It's a small space, but comfy and quirky, and just what's needed if you're passing through Navenby and looking for a refreshment break or something more substantial.More

Warm and friendly service, lovely clean surroundings and delicious food. We shared a Cheese Platter with a coffee for Lunch, toured round the Antiques Centre, and returned for Afternoon Tea and Cake, all of which was very tasty and nicely served. Cakes were made locally,...we had the Dorset Apple which was very tasty, and the cheeses were also local. A thoroughly enjoyable afternoon.More

Small café that sits at the back of a antique and curio shop. Excellent cakes all home made and a good variety of teas. Only draw back is that it only sits about eight. Light snacks are available reasonable prices

This is only a small coffee shop but by jove it packs a punch.A large range of homemade cakes scones and lots of other goodies. The coffee is superb and attracts customers from miles around.
