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.

Even though we live in Bury, my friend and Intreat ourselves every Friday to lunch at Leckenbys. Everything is so clean, and the food is cooked to order. The staff are so lovely and welcoming, and because of the quality of the food, and cleanliness...we sometimes need to queue for 10 minutes in order to get a table, but believe me it’s well worth the wait. Their menu will suit everyone, and in particular those will specific food allergies. Give it a try xxMore

It’s an annual Christmas shopping ritual for my mum and I to visit Leckenby’s and it’s always exceptional quality. Beautiful fresh bread with quality ingredients/fillings, interesting crisp salads, quiches and thick tasty soups. Lovely coffee and cakes too although we had mince pie for dessert...today which was served warm with fresh cream. Delicious! All the staff are so friendly and helpful and the lovely Management team, Jean and Melanie, have also been there each time we have. Their warm welcome and hospitality is another reason why my mum and i wouldn’t consider going anywhere else for our breakfast/lunch. I wish we lived closer to Leckenby’s.More

Although I work in Bury I had never been to this little gem before and must say how lovely it is. My mother and I only had toasted current teacakes and a pot of tea mid-morning but the atmosphere in the cafe, the courtesy of...the staff and everything as a whole was spot on. Would definitely recommend and would go again if I can find it in the maze that is Bury shopping area.More

We have been going here for many years and it’s our favourite place to go if we want a treat. On todays visit, I was with my 2 boys (1 has autism). We were seated at a table in the middle of the establishment. Very...quickly it became apparent that my son was not ok, there were too many people around him and he was uncomfortable and struggling. I asked a waitress if we could possibly move to the table in the corner but was told no, this table was for 6 diners and we were only 3. At this point my son started hitting himself in the head and crying. We left the establishment very quickly but spent 10 minutes outside while I tried to help my son out of his distress. My son said later on that the people sitting near him were making him uncomfortable and he never wants to go there again because the staff didn’t help him. I understand that ideally they wanted 6 diners at that table but there was none there when we were there and none waiting. Wouldn’t 3 diners have been better than none? Either way they have lost out custom as my son won’t go in again and it makes me question how inclusive they are for disabilities.More
