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.

Where do I start? A really friendly welcome and this continued through the entire visit. If I could have given a 3.5 rating then I would have but I'm not sure this visit deserved a 4 star rating. Had an £11 breakfast and whilst the...plate was cleaned I was just a little bit disappointed. Really being a bit picky but the sausage didn't appear to be the best quality and the eggs were a little overdone. The bacon looked as though it had been sat on a hot plate and not particularly fresh (lightly burned on the one side) but like I said I had no problem in finishing the entire plateful. The toast was really really good and the large pot of tea was just what was needed. I'm reasonably confident that a future visit (perhaps earlier in the day - not the owners or chefs fault) and my comments would have been better. The cake offerings looked really good and the place was decorated nicely and gave a good ambiance. Would this be my first port of call for a breakfast on a future visit to Ondle - Yes, absolutely.More

Went for a family lunch at the Greedy Piglet.  We've never had a bad lunch here & it's always pretty busy, with today no exception.  A booth became available & we settled in.  Two of us went for a breakfast, one for a ham &...cheese sandwich & I went for the burger.  We had milkshakes (always delicious) as well.  We all thoroughly enjoyed it & were very full! The girl serving brought a can of drink for my daughter for free, apologising for a delay.  We hadn't noticed the delay, but it was a busy Saturday lunchtime, so inevitably the kitchen would be strained.   Two diners were far less patient & began to get loud & grumpy before kicking off very loudly at the staff. The poor young girl serving them was soon in tears after the cafe politely refused to refund the full meal, as rudely demanded by the shouting visitors.   They may have had a point. I don't know.  What I do know is they behaved horrendously & showed no remorse for leaving a young girl in bits. Shame on them.  Anyway, they failed to ruin our experience & we will absolutely be back.More

The best coffee in Oundle in my opinion (it’s often just not strong enough), a great selection of cakes (coffee cake and scones are my personal fave) , you always get a warm welcome from the friendly team and they’re dog friendly. The prices are...very reasonable too. If you head there in the afternoon you can might even get a seat outside in the sunMore

This cafe is in an amazing old building with what looks like the original flooring. Thousands of pairs of feet have worn down the stone flagstones into grooves showing where folks have used the building for various purposes over the years. If the walls could...speak I'm sure they would have a fascinating tale to tell. Now it is a cafe, and a good one too. Nice atmosphere, pleasant staff and interesting decor. The cakes look good, though not outstanding, but my coffee was spot on. I hope to be back.More

I went in with my brother for a snack for me and a breakfast for my brother. Brother was given his coffee before his breakfast was made and he asked to take it back to keep it hot til the food came. The waitress said..." what am I meant to do with it " and that she would get into trouble ?. I ordered a sausage roll and a steak bake. The sausage roll was dry and hard and it snapped when I bit it. The steak bake was dry and when I opened it I saw two small bits of "meat" inside. I asked the waitress to change it as it was inedible, when she brought a replacement I asked her if she would eat it and she laughed and said "probably not". I asked her to take it back and for a refund, I was told I was not getting a refund and to leave the cafe. That is NOT how to treat customers but I suppose if you employ sub standard staff who give sub standard service and serve sub standard to inedible food then its not surprising that the place was empty on a Saturday mid morning. Food awful, staff rude and inexperienced and place not very clean, would certainly NOT returnMore

Always have friendly staff and the coffee is great. I used to have breakfast here regularly but recently the quality of breakfast has gone down probably down to the cost of ingredients rising. The sausages used to be premium and now the sausages are poor...quality and are very salty which is the dominant taste. The bread used to be freshly sliced doorstep bread and is now thin ready sliced. The omelettes also used to have a good reputation and were very filling made in a pan. These have now changed to being made in an omelette maker and are smaller. I won’t have breakfast there again but will happily have a coffee and a cake there.More

We’ve recently moved into the area and found this little gem of a place on one of our shopping trips. Now we’re hooked. A varied but not over complicated menu, welcoming staff, efficient service and the food is plentiful and nicely presented. To top it...off there is a relaxed but cosy atmosphere which just makes the whole experience a very pleasant one.More

My lady and I have always eaten at the Coffee Tavern nearby. However the last few visits there have lost its charm. A few weeks ago we decided to give this place a go and had a breakfast each….brilliant. The lady who runs the establishment...is very down to earth, very friendly and very efficient and staff are polite and on the ball. We went back today for our second visit. All tables were immaculate and very clean. We chose ours and ordered a jacket spud for my lady and an omelette for myself. My lady described her spud as delicious and my omelette was the best I’ve ever eaten…and I’ve had a few I’m 55! When in Oundle we will always eat here from now on….you should try it!More

The Greedy Piglet is a coffee and eatery opposite the church on the main street into Oundle with good wifi and coffee and great (and really genourous) breakfasts which you can eat in or take-away. What really sets this place apart is the exceptional and...super friendly service of one of the staff, Rachel, who always sparkles and shines and makes you want to come back over and over again. Rachel you are amazing and we love you!!!More
