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.

A heart warming spot brimming with locals and visitors alike. We loved sitting in the window watching the world go by with both our two dogs and son very happily welcome as we munched yummy toasties and delicious soup in a great atmosphere!

Have been there for lunch and always had an enjoyable experience. However decided to try Dinner for a change and what a disappointment. The oysters and local wine were excellent, however the food produced in the kitchen was way below the usual standard. The crackling...with the pork was so hard and inedible. However the chef did a great job with the log fire which was a great feature on a cold January night so perhaps “ a change of roles “ !! ??More

Can not fault the food or service in this quirky deli/bistro. Food is amazing and wholesome, Tortilla was fabulous, the rhubarb drink was soooo lovely and the baked cheesecake was scrummy.

Took my old dad to his favourite breakfast place in Bridport. We were a party of 5 on a very busy Saturday morning so chances of getting a table were slim. However, the fabulous chap who greeted us shuffled a few accommodating people around and...we were seated within a minute. Glorious breakfasts of pancakes, beans, eggs, bacon and the best gluten free bread I've tasted in yrs were served up. We indulged ourselves even more by having cheesecake to follow ! What a splendid place Soulshine is, such fantastic staff and such superbly toothsome food. Bridport has many good food establishments and Soulshine is up there with the best.More

Great service with fabulous home cooked, fresh tasty food. Lots of choice and plenty of seats. Local mackerel, turnip soup, cheese toasties, with good house wine and choice of beers. Washed down with excellent coffee and a sensational brownie. Enjoy

I love popping into this cafe when I am in Bridport, the menus is small but full of nice dishes. I love their doorstep sandwiches and their tortilla, just delicious. I am either vegetarian or vegan but they have some lovely vegetarian dishes. I found...their coffee has a bit of a funny undertaste, not sure I like their coffee bean choices. Their baked cheesecake is lovely but some of their (vegan?) cake slices were also not quite my taste. However, those are my personal tastes, other may very well disagree.More

Visited with the family for a late lunch. The generations all loved the food and the ambience. Short queue to get started but the experience more than made up for the frustration of waiting. We all had vegetarian options and they were packed full of...flavour. Coffee was great, cake delicious.More

We had the most delicious meal here while staying in Bridport for the Literature festival. We had tried coffee one morning with the most delicious cinnamon buns I’ve ever had so couldn’t wait to try their dinner menu. The service is lovely, very friendly and...helpful team who know all about the food. We had confit garlic with sourdough which was so tasty and different. We then had potatoes with pesto and beetroot warm salad - both so tasty and beautifully prepared. Lovely organic wines and a great cocktail selection. I only wish we lived nearer- we’d be there all the time!More

We simply love the food and atmosphere at Soulshine. It's hard to walk past when we go into town. The supper clubs and guest events are really great. We really enjoyed two events this year with Robin and recently Sabrina Gidda.

I went here for lunch with the wife, after perusing the menu, nothing really grabbed my liking. Lots of vegetarian, vegan and gluten free food, but next to nothing for the now virtually extinct meat eater; just one dish. My wife had a toasted cheese...sarnie which came out as two doorstep slices of bread with cheese melted in the middle; no finesse as with the other dishes. I understand you can’t please everyone; if you are a vegetarian or a vegan, you’ll love this place, if you fall into the category of the virtually extinct meat eater, sadly this is not the place for you.More

Fabulous food and drinks. Great knowledgeable staff and fantastic tapas style food. We were not disappointed, we left feeling well fed, happy and had thoroughly enjoyed our time here. The decor and ambiance were certainly conducive for an enjoyable time.
