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.

Solo diner betwixt satuday breakfast and lunch. Funky space in the old industrial area of town. Mix of locals and (rah rah) visitors. Very busy; staff were a bit overwhelmed but professional. Ordering protocol is a bit unclear as a first timer but all sorted....The meal was underwhelming - but great coffee! All in all a good experience, and I'll return, but i think if it was less busy, things would be better.More

Very, very unusual place , quirky doesn't cover it. Interesting cobweb collection. Having said that the bacon sandwiches were the best ever. Visiting the toilets is an experience in itself. Not sure how they passed the hygiene inspection, but if you are not too fussy,...it is quite fun!More

Excellent is not a high enough grading. This place is exceptional on so may levels restaurants or cafes in trendy places would love to emulate it. The Red Brick Cafe copies nobody it is a gem you must visit but please follow the rules and...you will be in for a treat/experience. Number one CASH ONLY. Do not moan you cannot pay with your phone the Red Brick Cafe is unique go to Costa in the high street if the method of payment is your priority. Number two. Very limited opening hours just 10-2 Wednesday to Sunday and Friday evening 6-10. Number three. You do not have a menu at the table it is all written on a chalk board by the stairs and as it is all sold out it is chalked off. In other words it will be a bit hit and miss and the menu will be limited. If you want a massive choice always available go to other restaurants and cafes serving straight from the freezer! Number four. Be prepared for a lot of people in close proximity if you are inside and particularly if it is raining. Some shared tables people queuing to pay and look at the menu. Number five it is not cheap but quality food cannot be cheap. Do not go and then say it was expensive if you want cheap go to McDonalds. Go and embrace a truly different cutting edge Cafe that does great food with a vibe that fits in perfectly with Bridport as a place.More

Only take cash so had to go on a bit of a hike to get to a cash point. Limited menu (fine) but not all options available (not do fine as early lunchtime). Chips ok, salad seemed like it had been made the day before....Looked great and wanted to like it but just felt a bit unprofessional and mediocre.More

Bridport has lots of shops, cafes, restaurants that work hard at being "quirky", "off the wall", "hey, we're a bit crazy" - and they are usually none of these things. The Red Brick Cafe doesn't have to work hard at it , because it does...it effortlessly - ate there tonight (Persian themed food - I think most Friday evenings are themed, but can't be sure) Food was fresh, tasty, generous and served without a single "have a nice day". Because it's Bridport there's lots of stuff about the provenance of the food, ethics, etc - but it's done with a light, genuine touch. The coffee is excellent. Expect to share a table of an evening, but during the daytime there's a pleasant covered garden area to the side. I will continue to go back!More

Stopped for a coffee and a snack, loved the wide range of outdoor seating and relaxed atmosphere. I had a coffee and a deliciously gooey brownie, my husband had a bowl of chips which looked great. Overall would recommend as a place to stop for...lunch, a coffee or other drink or snack!More

Wonderful gem in the heart of Bridport Latin Quarter. Fantastic time transporting atmosphere of the 80s art cafés, very relaxing yet stimulating. And the food is truly and wholesomely tasty and brings together the best of the world cuisines. Good music coming out of speakers...too! Somebody mentioned a try-hard feel…well, they indeed did try hard and in order to accommodate COVID restrictions managed to create an alternative outside space with a twist. Unlike most places that just put up marquees, the Red Brick cafe created their own unique space reminiscent of an ancient eco bubble filled with rustic tables and plants and and pots and more. Particularly love their imaginative wood+concrete walls. All feels as if it has always been there… Will be back again and again…👍🏼More

Went along for brunch with family today on a recommendation. Food and setting was fantastic but I ended up interacting a couple of times with a sour faced senior staff member that put us all off returning. The other members of the team were great..., the young waitress forgot our drinks but was apologetic and very friendly but when a senior staff member walks round scowling the whole time and then refuses my wife use of the loo at the end of the mea as they were closing it takes the shine off. Great food , mostly very nice staff - just keep this one away from the public until they understand that without customers they won’t survive.More
