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.

Great welcome and food. Cafe very busy but a table quickly became available. Despite how busy they we were served within a reasonable time and food was not that long either. A lot of choice with farm products and homemade.More

My husband and I eat at the cafe regularly and have always found the food wholesome, homemade, and the salad is excellent. An option of French dressing would enhance. (Note so keen on a splurge of mayonnaise!) Dogs welcomed outside. Would like it if allowed...inside as well! Staff friendly and helpful. Lovely walks in the area. Heartily recommend.More

Stopped by The Parlour Cafe as our usual Sunday staple Full English venue The Anchor in Shapwick was closed and i must say how impressed i was. The Parlour breakfast (full english) was awesome, lovely sausages, hash browns the best i have ever tasted and...that black pudding (an extra but well worth it) was amazing, lovely atmosphere and very happy and helpful staff. My wife had the English Muffin (basically Eggs Benedict) and said the poached eggs were delicious. it was all very reasonably priced too which is a bonus. I simply couldnt fault it 10/10 The Anchor may have to share us now... :DMore

Used to be a favourite venue. Today, the breakfast was disappointing. The quality of the ingredients were always top notch, but unfortunately corners have been cut and in particular the quality of the sausages. Very average now and definitely no better than other competing venues.More

We were so lucky to find this excellent restaurant with delicious food and great service. Sunday roast looked amazing but we chose farm shop sausages and a baked potato. Superb and served with such warmth and genuine smiles. Thank you for such great service in...a beautiful setting. All tables happy and families catered for with a quick change to seating.

Called here to shop at the farm shop, specifically for products to make 2 Christmas hampers with items from Dorset. Ample products in store & we spent well over £100 on various items. All look to be lovely items & should make lovely gifts. Sadly...didn’t sample the cafe as looked very busy & they had a notice that coffee machine not working.More

Delighted to find this farm shop cafe close to Kingston Lacey. Excellent lunch, the quiche is amazing. I wish it was available to buy in the shop. The tea was very nice too and cakes looked amazing.

We were delighted to discover this spot where we enjoyed a savoury cream tea ie cheese scones, served with cream cheese and relish. Well presented, fresh and delicious. We were able to sit outside which was a bonus. To be picky, we would have preferred...it if the tea hadn't arrived well before the food but that's certainly not going to put us off returning.More

Very disappointed with this place. We arrived at 2h35 hoping to get some lunch only to be told that they stopped serving hot lunches at 2h30. I explained that we had got lost , had a two hour journey back home and would be grateful...if they could serve us just one ham, egg and chips. I was told that they had already switched off the fire. We only had a drink and noted that they were still bringing out hot lunches at 2h50! Obviously they couldn’t be bothered to go ever so slightly out of their way to accommodate a customer. Unhelpful staff whocould learn a lesson or two from a nearby farm shop/cafe we were lucky to find later.More

We’ve been to Pamphill many times over the years when visiting family locally. The food is consistently good however our recent visit (Sunday) and our one last year the service was too slow. This time we ordered 2 creams teas and 1 kids meal. It...took almost an hour to come. By the time it did our tea was cold so we didn’t have anything to drink with the cream teas. Next time we will stick to takeaway ice cream (which is excellent) on the picnic tables. The shop is also worth a visit. There’s a great kids playground so such a shame the slow food let’s it down.More

Beautiful spot out in the country, not just a farm shop and restaurant but also a shop for pet food and accessories amongst others. Restaurant is cosy and with good friendly service. Very busy. We had the special, a chicken salad wrap and a side...salad and chips. The wrap itself was disappointing, just too big to eat easily and the chicken was somewhat dry and tasteless. A pity as otherwise an enjoyable experience.More

1st time here and my last. Met a very dear friend her for lunch Was sitting straight away with menus. Ordered drinks and lunch I ordered cheese on toast while my friend ordered a carnation chicken sandwich. When food arrived, it did look good Started...when I noticed something in my salded a dead moth. omg 😲 I felt sick as it was on my fork. At this point, my friend went to counter gentleman came over. Apologies, took my lunch away and asked if I wanted anything else, which I didn't. I was very shocked that there was no real apology apart from not having to pay for what we didn't eat. Myself working in the catering industry, and I would have bent over backwards for that customer to return as it only takes one bad episode review to have a big impact on this sort of industry.More
