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.

Visited Cafe on the Green for a cream tea. Over the years I have had many cream teas and the one provided by the Cafe on the Green was one of the best. The scone was lovely and light in texture, the jam was good...and plenty of clotted cream was provided. The tea provided was very good. Service was provided promptly and with a smile. Will be returning again soon.More

Perfect and luscious seasonal mince tarts. Full on flavour and crunchy almond top. The coffee is pretty good too as is all the food. Cosy log fires. Doggy friendly. Very attractive interior with vaulted ceilings. 🇬🇧🇳🇿

Beautiful cosy cafe. Came in for lunch after a blustery rainy walk up to bonehill rocks and back. Great vegan options (had sweetcorn fritters) and we shared a lovely cardamom bun. The food and all the service were super quick and efficient. Thanks for a...lovely time!More

Love this place, food always so good, staff always pleasant. So happy that the family members who choose a plant based diet are catered for, with plenty of variety on the menu and the same excellent quality throughout. Large car park adjacent is not owned...or run by the cafe, usually plenry of spaces and minimal parking charges at £1.60 for two hours.More

Absolutely wonderful place! Fabulous meal. Something for everyone on the menu which is well thought out and really well delivered. I can see a lot of effort has gone into the decor, the food and the choice of staff. Thank you how refreshing x

The first disappointment was the £2 parking charge and there was very little parking otherwise available. This was extremely dog friendly with 3 well behaved animals that easily made their way between the clean and tidy tables/chairs as their owners found empty spaces in the...spacious dining area. Despite the number of young people seated behind the counter, one had to go to the counter to place an order. The friendly staff were not long in bringing our order to the table. We had a Brie brown baguette accompanied with a leaf salad and apple juice and soup with a Cappucino that came to just over £23.00. All of the food was tasty and ample.More

We have visited several times over the last few weeks. We usually have a cream tea and coffee. The coffee is excellent but the cream tea is absolutely incredible. The scones are by far the best we have had anywhere, and the clotted cream and...jam is plentiful. The staff are friendly, helpful and efficient, the service is also quite excellent. Even the area is wonderful. A place not to be missedMore

What a beautiful location, a fabulous cafe, clean and modern with friendly staff and excellent lunch. Lunch was busy but drinks and food were delivered efficiently. We sat outside enhanced by the September sunshine and enjoyed the village green vibe. Would recommend.

My wife and I both had the Steak pasty with Salad ??? a side order of Chips and two Coffees, quality of the food was good if a little over priced, my only gripe was the ` Salad ` which consisted of just a couple...of different varieties of Lettuce, how about chucking in a little Tomato, Cucumber, Red Onion or Radish ? The service and staff was quick and friendly, as I said, just the one quibble which could easily be corrected.More

Breakfast £14.00 should be spot on. Had to return it to the kitchen because the eggs were really undercooked (we got there at opening time 10.00am very quickly presented with our breakfast... It's OK turning out food quickly but make sure it's cooked well). Then...the second breakfast turned up and the eggs were the same as the first ones the rest of the breakfast was really niceMore

It’s a stiff walk and probably only suited to serious walkers.

Like many others who have answered we did not have a meal here just a snack. With Christmas fast approaching perhaps better to ring and book and ask menu choices.
