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.

Had lunch today at the HOT CAFE. Herne Bay. With two of my grandchildren. The girls had burgers, as they do.But I had a prawn salad. And it was delicious. I liked it so much, I sent a message to the kitchen to thank the...person who had prepared it. The staff were very helpful. Didn’t have to wait to long considering how busy they were. I would definitely have that salad again. Thank you.More

The breakfast provided was very poor, many items cold and either over cooked or dried by having been kept. Wouldn't use it again.

We visited here for some lunch and was pleasantly surprised. We took a table outside and ordered from indoors. The staff were very friendly and happy. We had a set breakfast and a custom breakfast, toast and teas. Even though it was busy the tea...came out no longer than a couple of minutes after ordering which was really nice. The food soon followed. The food was hot and tasty and the toast went down well with the kids. The chips were cooked perfectly. It was a really nice experience and we would definitely return.More

Re opened with social distancing and it’s as good as ever. Eat here every day during the week for breakfast or lunch. Liver with onions, bacon, mash potato & peas is juicy, fresh, tasty & highly recommended for less than £5 for a filling lunch....Friendly service, nice people & great tasting freshly cooked meals at reasonable prices makes this restaurant a must visit...More
