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.

A lovely part of the Oswestry café scene. Amazing cakes, glutton free included, and a good menu. Impeccable, friendly service from the owners and their staff and a fabulous Sunday lunch which can be a takeaway.

I was recommended by a friend when looking for someone to make a 70th Birthday cake for my sister. I have never eaten in this coffee shop, but when I went in and saw the cakes, I knew it looked very promising. The owners were...lovely when I explained what I wanted, and I have to say the finished cake (chocolate) was exactly what I'd asked for. The cake itself was delicious, very moist and everyone particularly liked the fact that the filling was a ganache and raspberry jam as opposed to just buttercream. As a bonus the cake also freezes well! Handy for any leftovers. This shop will now be my first port of call for coffee and cake, although the lunch time menu looked also very tempting. Lovely atmosphere and extremely pleasant owners.More

As a solo luncher I received a very friendly welcome, excellent service and very tasty, well cooked snack lunch - rarebit with bacon. The cafe is comfortable, individual and an asset to the town. I was only a casual visitor but it made a very...positive impression and I would recommend it highly.More

I literally can’t recommend this place enough. We had such a lovely meal-the salad that accompanied our meal had so many different parts to it rather than just lettuce and tomato. The cakes all looked amazing on the counter and they had a special pancake...menu on at the time for shrove Tuesday. It had a really nice family fun vibe and at the end the chef came out and did a magic trick for the kids. Faultless!More

Today was my first visit to the Old Coffee Pot in 2023. I was not disappointed, the service was great. There has been some minor menu changes and so today I tried the new ham hock & potato cakes with a savoury lentil and bean...stew. It was fresh, healthy and tasted wonderful. Well done Darren and Rachel, another great lunch experience. Plus I opted to bring my piece of lemon meringue pie home for supper - always fabulous 😍 thank you all 👌More

We are limited on vegan options. We can do a fantastic salad or baked potato. But I must say we do a fantastic chocolate cake
