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.

We have now travelled the hour from home to visit this place on many occasions. The breakfasts have always been excellent and the staff very friendly. Not really interested in motor bikes but always worth a look as there are many stunning and rare examples.

I have watched this café develop over the last 7 years from a motor bike showroom with a café, to what it is today. The food is superb, the staff so helpful and friendly. I live right next door so use it often. I have...never had a bad meal, and the fact that it is local is excellent. I cannot recommend it highly enough. An asset to the town.More

We hadn’t been to Gillingham since we purchased a motorbike from the now defunct Moto Corsa, but passing through we dropped in on spec as we’d heard it was now a cafe. Great to see that the place hasn’t been too messed around with, and...still motorbikes around. Tasty food, a decent cuppa and friendly staff. Will go back.More

Unfortunately our table which was prebooked was in the front part and was extremely cold and because we were out of sight the service was awful plates not cleared we did not order desserts because no staff came around to take order. Just paid an...left shame it’s nearly there to be good a cafe perhaps bad day but waiting staff needs to be more organisedMore

Always excellent food and lovely staff. Even the customers are invariably pleasant and thoughtful. Can’t fault it and love taking my friends there as it never disappoints. To crown all that it’s dog friendly and you have lots of choices on places where to sit.

Second visit here as a large group. Once again didn’t disappoint. Pre booked due to the size of the group (26) and as before the food was amazing. Great portion size and really great quality of food. We saved ours levels this time so we...could have a breakfast as before we had eaten earlier. Most definitely worth a visit staff are amazing and really do a wonderful job. Thank you so much and I’m sure it won’t be our last visitMore

Fantastic food beautiful building wonderful bikes. Came here with many friends on a bike weekend on our way to the New forest. Service was impeccable. As a group of fifteen people we’d thought getting meals out pretty quick and tighter normally is a problem but...these guys managed to hit it perfectly. Hot yummy food and at an amazing price. Great environment with all the bikes. Some great history and really is greatly arranged. We’d been sat on an extremely long table and didn’t feel all huddled together. Loos clean and tidy. Well done guys and thank you so much.More

Had a great breakfast today courtesy of the Old Brewery. A very unusual setting, surrounded by beautiful motorcycles of various ages. Well priced, delicious breakfast. Good sized portions, quality ingredients and great service. Thoroughly recommend the ice cream milkshakes (and everything else)!

Nine of us had a lovely lunch. We are bikers but you would not need to be and there were plenty of non bikers enjoying a meal. Service was top notch.

In the cultural desert that is Gillingham, this is a really nice place for a well-priced lunch. Four of us came on Easter Saturday and there was some choice of tables. The menu was fine and our waitress very helpful. Everyone liked their food (and...wine) and the price was extremely reasonable so we'll be doing this again (soon)!More
