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.

Don’t be put off by the location. This place is a gem! We had short wait … because it was rammed … but gosh was it worth it! Great, plentiful plates of food, epic milkshakes and lovely staff. Brilliant!More

This is a lovely cafe. Fabulous breakfasts and lunches, efficient, polite service, and so reasonably priced we returned to check they hadn't undercharged us. Also, spotlessly clean, and car parking too!

This was my first time here. My friend has come here many times. We had two small breakfasts. I was impressed by the fact that the breakfast did not feel greasy and the sausage was of a really good quality. The cafe itself is really...pleasant and not noisy. I am looking forward to coming back with my husband and 17 year old son and sample other dishes. The decaf coffee was excellent too. I nearly forgot to mention the service which was also excellent.More

We enjoyed an all Inclusive breakfast for £9.95 with friends this morning. The breakfast was excellent. Lots to eat and all cooked to perfection. Staff were polite and friendly and our meal was bought to our table nice and hot and quickly. All in all...a very pleasant experience and we would definitely recommend 😊More

Cannot fault the food great size portions too, all allergies catered for including gluten free. The staff are attentive and friendly, always welcoming especially Donna who has become the highlight of our visit for our little girl. My son is autistic and likes his food...very particular, this is always catered for with no question. The Worx has become a firm favourite for us and I recommend it to everyone.More

I was totally shocked and taking back by the lack of respect some of your staff have. I was sat opposite a family one of the children/young adult had very clear disabilities to what your staff thought it would be funny to make fun of...her. A waitresses with short dark ponytail and the other with blonde hair continued to make nasty remarks about this individual loud enough so that I could hear. A short time after a gentleman came in to the restaurant and again these two females would insult him. I am utterly appalled by these two females.More
