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.

We called in for a late lunch with friends. Great lunch menu, all vegetarian, & drinks. Well presented and very tasty. Not expensive and with very pleasant staff.

Great vegetarian and vegan food. We tried the veggie and vegan breakfasts and both were very tasty with generous portions. Staff were very polite and friendly locals. Welcoming to dogs as well

Although the staff were lovely, and very friendly, the food was poor at best. And terribly overpriced. £10.95 for a jacket potato - seriously!! The Welsh rarebit was truly awful - dry and tasteless, not googy and unctuous as it should be. One piece of...poor cheese on toast for £10.95. Quite unbelievable. The onion bhaji wrap was ok but why oh why big chunks of badly pickled cauliflower?? It wasn't mentioned on the menu. Good points are the sweet chilli sauce - delicious, the lemon drizzle cake, and the service. However, we certainly won't be going back for lunch anytime soon.More

After reading the reviews and previewing the menu we were really looking forward to Mother's Day lunch at Leila's Kitchen. But sadly the food was frankly very disappointing and uninspiring. I had the tofu sandwich. As a vegan I have eaten lots of tofu and...this was the worst in terms of presentation and taste - the sandwich came with 4 slabs of tofu and hummus plus a side salad. Tofu can be bland so thats why I was so surprised that little attempt had been made to add flavour to it eg marinated. Another member of our party had the onion bhaji wrap. The flavour of the bhaji was overpowered by too much pickled cauliflower. The third member of the group had Welsh Rarebit which was very poor value for money only having one relatively small slice of sourdough which was topped with what looked like sludge. On leaving and having spent over £45 we were not asked if we had enjoyed the food or not. If we had been then we would have shared this feedback at the time.More

A great brunch menu with lots of options. On a weekend visit, we ate here both mornings. My friend had the banana and cinnamon porridge on both days which she said was delicious and I had scrambled egg and mushrooms and the avocado stack. The...portions were really generous and everything was fresh and tasty. Lovely people serving great food. Thank you!More

Stopped here for lunch after a visit to the gym, hadn't been before. Staff were very welcoming and friendly upon entry. We had two dishes a halloumi wrap and Ash Reshteh soup, a Persian soup which was absolutely delicious, possibly the best soup I'd ever...tasted. All in all, good value, tasty food and excellent customer service. Far better than the awful experience and Mooch the day before.More

I love this place, it’s one of my very favourite places to go to for drinks, or for food. Great drinks and food (the breakfast Persian Omelette is just amazing!!), a great atmosphere and always excellent, exceptionally helpful, warm and friendly service too

A really good meal. Came for lunch whilst away. Really good quality food. We did wait for a quite a while but it was very busy so not surprised. Probably best to book if you are going as it is clearly popular!

Just had a hot chocolate and a pumpkin spice cappuccino, with an added Ginger beer. The Cappuccino was interesting with the spice. The Hot Chocolate could have been hotter but was good quality. The standout was the very polite service.

This was a very lucky find. Looking for somewhere to park up and ended up right outside. I need food that is gluten free and veggie so this place immediately caught my attention. Was a very warm welcome as we entered. Menu was a delight...and to be frank I found it difficult to choose. I settled on the Persian stew, my wife had a halloumi wrap. The food arrived quickly. Service was very efficient. This is such a gem and would definitely go back.More

Searched Google for the "best lesbian restaurant in Hebden Bridge". Well, we were in Hebden Bridge! This came up. What a lovely place. Vegetarian too. Pity Sue wasn't with us. She's always grumbling about lack of veggie choices. Great food, service & prices. Love it.

Quirky little place that is full of charm. Located in a beautiful period building. Good coffee and a delicious felafel wrap. Good value and smiley staff. Perfect for lunch!
