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.

Free parking for 2hrs next to cafe. Lovely friendly staff. Had chips and ham and peas and Stilton soup with cheese scone. And our puppy was offered a little bit of chicken. Such a lovely thought. Super clean toilet with easy access

Truly the most welcoming cafe in Bourne. Today I brought my women’s running group to have post run coffee and breakfast and I have nothing but good things to say about our experience. Delightful atmosphere and so very welcoming when we arrived. Our coffee and...food (we had a range but the breakfast eggs was popular) served hot, fast, with a smile, catering for a range of needs, desires and palettes and the punch line- it was delicious. We will definitely be back! 🩷More

Wonderful afternoon tea for a family group - I was so pleased with the service and quality of the food. We had to book before hand - but this was good because we could discuss the sandwich fillings. The cakes were very pretty and tasty...lovely and fresh. The sandwiches were tasty too. I loved the fact that there was such a wide range of tea and you could try some speciality ones - with free refills (not like some other cafes). There was food left over and this was boxed up for us. Service was great. Everybody loved it.More

I regularly visit with friends, one of whom is Vegetarian, and we've never been disappointed. There's always a warm welcome from friendly staff and prompt service. There's a good lunchtime selection with some interesting Specials, as well as an abundance of cake and/or ice cream...to choose from. The food is freshly cooked, good quality ingredients, and the portion sizes are generous. We will continue to patronise this excellent local cafe.More

Visited with family and I had the Breakfast. Could not fault it! The sausages in particular were brilliant. If I'm being critical the only problems we had were waiting for cutlery and sauces after being served our lovely hot food, which was getting cold. We...had someone in a wheel chair and whilst very accommodating there is a step at the front of the building which goes out onto the main street and close to the road. (not their fault though) Just something to consider if visiting with Wheelchair users.More

Decided to try here as an alternative to a pub lunch. What a delightful find. Lovely friendly welcome and even though it was quite busy and not having booked previously, we were found a perfect table. Great thing is, it's dog friendly which was another...reason I chose it. The food was lovely, and delicious scones with jam and clotted cream. It's clearly popular with locals and has a clientele of regulars. A great little find.More

We decided to pop in for lunch! The waitress was very friendly and helpful. Could not fault the salad! But unfortunately the eggs, chips were over cooked when my husband had ham, eggs and chips. A second attempt resulted in soft eggs which were asked...for but still overcooked chipsMore

Ginger Fox is a great place for lunch or just a coffee and cake. There is always lots of variety in the home made cakes, savoury food is always well presented and freshly prepared and cooked. The staff are really great and go out of...their way to look after their older customers.More

Having had a bad experience at another café, we came here for lunch and were so glad to have done so. The service was friendly and helpful, and they catered very well for my gluten-free diet. We were all very happy with our meals. I...had the all-day breakfast with gluten-free toast and even gluten-free sausages - marvellous! I didn't have any room left, but they also do gluten-free cake so I'll sample that another time!More

My husband & I have become regulars at The Ginger Fox, popping in when we're not working for a sort of lunch with our dog. Tracy is always bustling around super busy but always has time for a chat & to bring our dog a...sausage. Jayne is a fabulous cook, producing the freshest food & amazing cakes & always has a smile. I can't recommend the Ginger Fox highly enough, there are so few places that not only allow a dog but also actively welcome them, bravo ladies!More

Was bowled over by this lovely little place. Very friendly service, where NOTHING was too much trouble. The Butternut Squash and Coconut soup was delicious. I needed a soft roll not on the menu, so a lovely soft slice of buttered bread was offered, rather...than the crusty one or the delicious cheese scone. On the website was a dessert not on the menu ( banana waffle with butterscotch ice cream) so what do they do, but they go and obtain some bananas and make it for us anyway! Where else would you get this with a huge genuine smile? Couldnt resist taking home for hubby a generous slice of chocolate cake that I "needed" to help him eat. DIVINE!! Thank you so much again to you all - we will certainly visit again and recommend you to your friends and family XMore

I visited this cafe for the first time on the 8th January having been recommended by a friend, and as far as the cafe is concerned there are nothing but positives, it is clean, well presented, the staff who served us were polite and helpful...and our choice of food from the menu certainly did not disappoint in presentation, quality and quantity. However that really is where the positives end. We chose a table for two and were seated in the upper section of the cafe, next to us, to our right were another couple enjoying a meal, and none of their obvious conversation could be heard by us, and no doubt neither could the discourse that passed between my wife and I be heard by them. Sadly at the top of the cafe are settees and armchairs and seated as a group on the settees were two young females and a male, who in fairness to him we heard nothing, but as far as the two females were concerned they could, not only talk for England but with absolutely no exaggeration we could not help but hear practically every word of their very loud conversations that continued for whole of the time we spent in the cafe, and to be fair it was not only irritating, but typified the inconsiderate and selfish nature of some of that so called generation of modern females, that seem to spend their entire lives talking at the top of their voices wherever they are, obviously they would have come from a family background where he or she who shouts loudest gets the attention, and that seems to be what it is all about, as for the second female sitting on the settee with her back to us, upon taking the baby in her hands and raising it above head height and bellowing, "super baby," three times, that really for me gilded the lily, and I made a conscious decision that I would count out any future visits to this cafe, much as I enjoyed everything else about the establishment, I am afraid that if I want the McDonald's, Burger King, KFC atmosphere of face booking youngsters totally ignoring any modicum of respect for fellow diners with their loud mouthed vocal discourse then that is where I feel quite sure that I will find it, and as such I avoid such establishments. I am sorry to say that those settees and armchairs are going to be a magnet for these type of loud mouthed inconsiderate customers and they will certainly not win any favour with anyone wishing to enjoy a drink or meal in a convivial atmosphere of relative peace and quiet where they can indulge in a personal conversation without having to endure listening to someone else whose intelligence would not even stretch to understanding the meaning of the words "soto voce." But I do thank you for the excellent service we received from the staff.More
