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 very nice cafe with very friendly and helpful staff. No matter how busy they are they are always attentive and happy to chat. They do an excellent cup of coffee and the cakes are always very tasty too. I am more than...happy to recommend a visit to anyone.More

Ordered 2 coffees and 2 sausage sandwich's for takeout , pretty ordinary order . The service was very lukewarm, i struggled to open the door with my order but no offer of help , on getting back to the car we found the bread buns...to be hard and dry and the sausages just to say warm , the coffee was okay but needed to be hotter, the dog had no complaints so at least she enjoyed her breakfast, for £20 it was poor quality along with poor service.Very disappointing.More

Having read the reviews before going I was a little unsure about what to expect. Well it was a great experience x 2. We walked in at 10am when the cafe opened to be greeted by lovely friendly staff. After our drinks - which were...hot and quickly delivered we walked along the bank and returned to cafe for lunch. The cafe by this time was full but our lunch soon arrived and was brought to our table by a friendly, helpful and very professional young lad. The food (2 x sausage sandwich, one toasted sandwich and one child's dish) was all lovely and we all had clean plates at the finish. I can only vouch for the day on which we visited but the welcome, the staff, the time from order to delivery and the food/drinks could not be beaten. I look forward to going againMore

We often visit the cafe as we take the dog ( Charlie) for a walk along the top of the Sutton bank . They welcome dig inside as well as outside which is nice when it cold and wet dayThe staff are always polite and...helpful, as we only call for coffee and cake usually, I can’t comment on the cooked food but it always looks nice and looks good value for the price paid. Will call again as we go most weeks even during the winter months, it can get very busy in summer you just have to be patient and wait your turn .More

Often like to pop in here, for a coffee and a snack, when I'm out and about enjoying Englands finest views. Have always found the staff very friendly and welcoming and always enjoy my visit. Will give a shout out to Rach who has served...me the last time or two I've been in, she's very professional, efficient and organised but remains friendly and helpful. A great asset to the cafe. Looking forward to my next visit!!More

Having enjoyed a walk with fantastic views of the surrounding country, we decided to drop in at the cafe for breakfast. The deluxe breakfast buns were delicious and iced latte very welcome.

What a brilliant cafe. After a short walk/bike around the green bike route with the kids, we popped into the cafe for a quick lunch. Great service with a smile and the food was served very quickly. Fantastic food which for 4 meals and a...few drinks under £30 we thought was great value for money. Topped off with an ice cream each. We’ll definitely be back again!More

Absolutely terrible!! Our 2nd visit. we weren’t impressed by our first visit but gave it another chance and definitely shouldn’t have. Got there at 10 Am excited to start our day with some breakfast before our walk. It was still closed as they were half...an hour late opening. Went to order our food at the counter, to be told they could only do a sausage sandwich as they didn’t have the kitchen set up yet even after opening late. After our 1st visit I’d advise to swerve the sausages as they resembled cat food! Both members of staff were extremely rude about the situation, so we decided just to get a coffee until the kitchen was ready. After 10 minutes they still had no idea when they would be able to provide the food on menu. So we asked for some takeaway cups, the coffee could only be described as luke walk milk and reminded me of what my mother used to give me as a toddler for bed! Anyway headed up to high paradise farm for food which is just a 5 minute drive away, amazing place lovely food and very welcoming staff highly recommend to go there to avoid disappointment and shocking customer service.More

They did not when I visited, however now the covid situation has improved they may well do, but I suspect it would be very overpriced. I would advise you take your own picnic.
