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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Just been for coffee (and cake, of course!) with my elderly mum. The Dancing House is a lovely venue tucked away in a lovely setting, with a really interesting history. The coffee was excellent and the homemade cakes were delicious and generous portions. The service...was friendly, accommodating and efficient. Will definitely be back for more! Thank youMore

We stopped off for lunch while passing through Gomersal on a Sunday afternoon and we’re pleasantly surprised that The Dancing House was open. We had a great experience with friendly service and good prices, the chilli jacket special was lovely and tasty as was the...Italian meat panini. Will defo be calling if we’re passing again.More

This unusual venue used to be another name but the antiques always took priority over the customers. Wow what a fab change. Smiling staff serving lots of tots in the refurbished garden area on a warm day. Interesting new menu with loads of choice meant...we did not feel rushed to order. I was able to order a large cafeteria, with choice of coffee strength. My wife her usual pot of tea. Nice crockery. My order of a triple decker sandwich was excellent but my wife's order of boiled eggs and crispy bacon was just brilliant. A first, she eat everything , well nearly everything , I actually had to sneak a taster. Wonderful bap bursting with perfect bacon, no rind or uncooked bits, spot on eggs and clever mix of salad. I may go on but how often are sandwiches mundane. These are superb. The three ladies working here all smiled and made us welcome. An added advantage is the vast range of cakes for afters. I'm a simple scone jam and cream man which helped me to finish my superb coffee.More

Met a friend for lunch and wanted somewhere comfortable and could talk, this fitted the bill with really good food and service. Soup was delicious and cakes are to die for plus tea served in bone china. Roaring stove on a wet day with vintage...furniture without being twee!More

I regularly attend The Dancing House for breakfast while my daughter dances in the dance school upstairs. I've also attended a baby shower recently which was well-organised and delicious! Staff are always attentive even when busy and the food is great and prices reasonable. On...a nice day it's lovely to sit out in the pleasant garden which is family friendly with children's toys.More

The Dance House Café is a very welcoming, clean, cosy place to have a Deluxe Tea and Cake experience. It was the first time Linda had made the particular type of Victoria sponge that day and it was scrumptious, the butter cream and icing were...lovely and the cake very light indeed. The Rocky Road was chewy in all the right places! The neat little sandwiches were a real treat. I almost forgot we had the sandwiches recalling the tasty treats, but yes they were very fresh and assorted. We had been asked what fillings we preferred so nothing was wasted obviously. The experience had been a treat from family and that is what it was. The large tea pot was refilled without hassle and Linda was the perfect hostess though it was getting busy nothing was too much trouble, so THANK YOU. The place is full of nostalgic stories and photos of famous and dancers generally. I managed to get a photo of the grand piano in the corner and managed not to ask to play it! I'm doing well! If I lived in the area I would re-live my dancing years, join up for all the adult Ballet classes, tap class and even try the line dancing again, just to finish off in the coffee lounge and enjoy the atmosphere and the cake obviously! A REAL TREAT well done everyone and the young lady who bagged up our leftover cakes to bring home. YUMMY.I overheard it said that they try and help out if people have certain allergies etc so do ask if you ring to book .Go Try this worth a visit if only passing through. Car park at rear. Website for further information about children's activities and all classes listed on cards on tables.More

Great little place to take the kids for breakfast. Very child friendly. Lovely atmosphere. Food was nice, did come out slowly, my husband had finished his just before my food arrived. One waitress a bit overbearing, she asked my child what was wrong with his...food as he wasn’t eating, He’s a faddy eater at the best of times and the lady wouldn’t let it go. Would defintley return againMore

Called for a light lunch and cuppa. Such potential and character but badly let down by nonchalant and disorganised staff. Long wait (not busy) for food. Then teapot came without tea; then the milk was off and another 15min wait for replacement. Finally had stewed...tea 20mins after ling awaited sandwich had been eaten. No apology just the feeling we were a bother rather than the badly done to customers! Shame as place is nice enough and has potential but personally i won't be troubling them again. Bad show all round.More

What a beautiful place this is. Afternoon tea for adults and children. Food was brought for children before adults. A massive hit with most parents. The food was amazing. Little details on the children's afternoon tea made my daughter's day. She had cakes, fruit, salad,...sandwiches. Also a picknmix variety of sweets dressed around the serving plates. Served with a little milkshake. The sandwiches for adults were tasty, delicate and flavoursome. Tuna, cheese, beef, ham, salmon with cream cheese, all served with salads. Delicious. Not forgetting the homemade coleslaw in shot glasses. The attention to detail was sublime. Coffee pot ( large cafetiere) and tea pot ( with decent tea bags). The accompanying cakes were lemon drizzle, coffee and walnut, chocolate brownies. This was also coupled up with the largest, tastiest scones. The clotted cream and jam were delicious and plenty to go around. Price was low for what we were given. This was a visit for my mum's birthday. She was very impressed. Outside area is great for children. I would visit again.More

What a find! Tucked away, as part of a dance school (opened in 1910), this cafe has a wonderful “homely” atmosphere. The food is delightful and the service is amazing. I can think of no better place to while away an hour or so on...a lazy Saturday morning.More

Called on a Sunday with a group of hungry but picky cyclists. Loved it. Half of us had coffee and cake, the other half had cooked food. Pleasant and prompt service, reasonably priced. Came in the middle of winter so no chance to use the...garden but will certainly return. Never knew it was there even though it has a main road frontage. A wonderful find.More
