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.

Fantastic pre booked afternoon tea of cakes and sandwiches with plain scones . Originally booked for 4 people but extra person came as well and as we had let them know the day before it was sorted out fine. The food was lovely and so...much for £12.95 a head. Service was excellent and very efficient. Would definitely book again.More

Went to Loubees Tearoom on moulsham street for the first time a few days ago. There was a group of us. Firstly, the food 🤌💯 with an all day breakfast menu and also a lunch menu. Cakes tasted AMAZING! And the staff and tearoom were...superb - super attentive, friendly and just awesome. So rare to find such great customer service lately! KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK.More

Walk-in for bread pudding - wasn’t nice at all, way too much cinnamon (which I don’t believe is a traditional ingredient) couple of bites, had to throw away. Over priced. Such a shame..I’ll keep looking for that magical moment of bread pudding.

Chelmsford was our chosen pit stop to break our 3hr journey. Came across this tearoom on line and reviews looked good. We phoned ahead to book once we were en route and I'm glad we did as it was reassuringly busy. We had a baguette...and an omelette and salad. The omelette was beautiful and we ate every last bit of our lunches. We then had a homemade warm scone each with cream and jam. 😋 There is plenty of seating inside and out. Beware of the 1hr street parking though as very strict. We moved our car to the nearby carpark so that we didn't have to rush. Couldn't fault this lovely cafe and the ambience was an added extra. Staff very friendly and helpful too.More

Dropped in to this sweet café for lunch. Very friendly welcome and service. The food was really tasty, and in particular the desserts were huge! I took some home with me :-) All the staff were helpful, checking in that things were fine, telling us...about he recipes and just very pleasant. Will definitely be back!More
