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.

Wonderful venue for coffee and breakfast, always get a very warm welcome. Great decor if a little eclectic.

One of my favourite spots. Great coffee and atmosphere. Wonderfully quirky. A place where you can feel comfortable having a coffee on your own

I just love this place, while I am not a regular that is down entirely to proximity and not desire. The coffee is great, the selection of teas are delicious, and as for the food, it is wonderful. What is on offer is to be...found here alone, at least regarding other coffee shops, good home made food. The staff too are without question some of the warmest people I have met. I doubt that I am ever remembered when I find the time to visit, but my family and I are always welcomed like old friends.More

Don’t come here expecting a decent breakfast! Came here after seeing the great reviews, sadly Anke’s didn’t impressed me at all really, I had a breakfast with potatoes …was ok, but very small… 1 egg 1 sausage some potatoes and sour bread which cost £10.00...(massively overpriced) - the place itself has a 20’s vibe which was cool and the staff were nice, won’t be rushing back.More

Took my mum out for lunch here and we had the stew and dumplings which was delicious. The bread rolls and cakes were also divine! Really friendly efficient service, will definitely return.

A wonderful place that creates calm once you step through the door. A mismatch of furniture creating a sort of will trodden path of familiarity. All the staff are friendly, with honest smiles and words. The food and drinks are good, just take a trip...through the menu. Yep, if there was a metaphysical bookmark, I would mark this place.More

I love the feeling of Anke's. It is so Artisan with a capital A, with its quiet jazz playing in the background and the artifacts of bygone eras plus the old piano. When Covid is over I will ask if I can run a poetry...reading here. Till then I shall sip my coffee and drink in the Ambiance of Anke's (with a capital A).More

I am so thrilled that Anke's has opened for takeaway. A couple of weeks ago, we had the stew with dumplings, a most generous portion, and cheesecake. Yesterday, coffee to go (delicious!), rolls (I loved my pickled herring one, my husband had roasted veg with...hummus), and, of course, I can never visit there without a slice of cheesecake to share. One of my go-to eating places, service always with a smile. Anke is now also selling her own design greetings cards.More

I said “Can I just have a sandwich and a cup of tea” Next thing I got a bill for £12! £6.50 for a sliced white bread toastie with processed ham and cheese. £2.50 for a small pot of tea Extra £3.00 for a few...cubes of horrible watery boiled potatoes mixed with onions and capers Don’t go there. Much better food at a third of the price in almost anywhere nearby.More

A lovely, quirky little café with multiple rooms to spread out in, making it a quiet place to sit and relax or catch up on some work away from the main café downstairs. The service is friendly and the cakes are delicious but the stew...with dumplings is OUT OF THIS WORLD!! 🥘🍴💙 This little corner of the world is my new favourite place and I look forward to visiting again to set up a new tab and enjoy the peace and quiet for a few hours while I work.More
