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.

We found this by chance and stopped for a coffee, but stayed for lunch. The food was delicious and the staff were warm, welcoming and professional. The premises are a wonderful stable conversion resulting in a bright airy atmosphere. We will be back!

Visited this gem for the first time today and what a find! Wife is coeliac and the owner certainly knows her stuff. Great variety for everyone, including gluten free, which can be so difficult to find. Wife only had a gluten free syrup sponge with...cream as she doesn't eat much at lunchtime and said it was lovely. I had the Korean Chicken Bao Buns, delicious but beware of the bird's eye chillies, (can be omitted if required,) 😂🙈 Mother in law had the red onion quiche with salad which she too really enjoyed. Not the cheapest but you definitely get what you pay for, too quality food and excellent service. Wife normally nervous about eating out and I'm not easy to please but both of us can't wait to return, maybe for the Sunday roast with the optional gluten free gravy and Yorkshire pudding! 10/10More

Visited this establishment on the recommendation of a friend. However I’m a bit disappointed especially after the hour drive. The coffee shop as a whole looks amazing but the staff are rude, food is ridiculously expensive for what it is and once sat at a...table, other than to take my order I was ignored. Whilst paying I could hear obscenities from the kitchen along with the reception/counter staff using mobile phones. Rather than cause a ruckus in-front of the other paying customers I decided to pay my way and then leave promptly. Sorry but I won’t be returning.More

I ordered Falafel and Hummus in a sandwich. Unfortunately it was quite dry and a bit salty. My friend had an Avocado, Mozarella and Sundried Tomato Panini. We were asked if we wanted to share a portion of chips and we agreed. These were presented...in a small mug and were very greasy, limp and dark (old potatoes and old cooking oil I think). Not what we expected at all. The cafe was in nice surroundings and the staff were very friendly and pleasant. Not sure I'll be dashing back though.More
