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.

My husband had booked an afternoon tea here for two for my special birthday. When we arrived, the whole family was there so nine of us in total, including an 8 year old. From the very start, Charlie and his team could not do enough...for us. They took my magnificent box of flowers off to a safe, cooler place. They catered for the youngster. Even when he was told JUST as he was serving the absolutely scrumptious food that one of the party couldn’t eat dairy, he didn’t panic, just ran through some other delicious options which were produced very speedily. To say the afternoon teas were large definitely does them an injustice- they were huge! Charlie popped over at one point to remind us all there were cakes and scones etc to follow. We ended up taking 4 packed boxes home with us. Such a lovely treat made perfect by the lovely staff and the quality of the food. Go there when you are very hungry- you won’t be at the end!More

Well, following a positive day yesterday this is an interesting perspective. One can see from past reviews that this cafe is not generating poor service and quality therefore, if yours is a real review, it is interesting that you bothered to wait an inordinate amount...More

Such friendly staff, warm atmosphere, interesting environment (with antiques for sale!) and delicious food. The cafe catered to various dietary requirements including vegan, vegetarian, gluten and lactose free. We had a wonderful baby shower there and would highly recommend this to anyone! The staff even...boxed up the elements of the afternoon tea we were too full to finish. Look forward to visiting again soon.More

Great place for breakfast/brunch/lunch. Plenty to choose from on the menu and they accommodate dairy and gluten intolerances. The cafe is small and very popular so I would recommend booking a table.
