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.

What a fantastic little cafe, really well priced and beautiful food. Highly recommend the home made ice cream. Better than anywhere! Lovely little shop too with lots of nice bits and pieces.

I had a cheese scone with delicious cream cheese and pickle, it was amazing, had to stop hubby from diving into his carrot and coriander soup, served with a real fresh crusty roll. The gardens looked amazing even in the drizzle and even though the...main flowering season had passed, the very well thought out planting was still giving lots to look at, why doesn't mine look as good now! Everything was well priced, food, plants and gifts. Prices certainly gave St David's a run for their money and the quality was superb. Great service and such a well thought out place/project, if you don't visit here you will be missing out on one the top spots in the area!! We're going back for afternoon tea before we leave for home 😍😍😍More

Ok, you’re going to need to sit down while I tell you about the cheese scone - you think you know cheese scones? You know NOTHING unless you’ve had the cheese scone here. I suggest you stop what you’re doing, get in your car/on a...train/on a plane and get down here for a cheese scone. You can thank me later. You’re welcome. Seriously though, this is a lovely little place, with tables set in the gardens and in the trees, and offering some fantastic food for a reasonable price. We visit every time we’re in the area, and we really look forward to going. I’d probably be bankrupt if I lived nearby… :-)More

A hidden gem near St David's Pembrokeshire. Lovely setting down quiet lanes. Cafe offered veg, vegan and meat lunch type meals. Range of teas and coffees. Lovely cakes. Best bit is tables set within the gardens and poly tunnels that you can wander through.

A real gem of a place . A short distance from St Davids , lots of local Welsh ingredients / produce . Delicious homemade soups . Gluten free options not a problem , vegan options too. Lovely helpful , welcoming staff. A really relaxing garden...space and small shop . Our second visit and we’ll definitely be back soon . Even our well behaved Labrador was welcome . Thank you all for a wonderful trip once again , we thoroughly enjoyed ( and the home produced gelato too ) .More

Stopped for ice cream on the way back from the Blue Lagoon, having passed it en route. Well worth the stop. The homemade ice cream was delicious. The staff later proved to be a lifesaver as I dropped the key to our accommodation there. Called...and they said would remain open until we collected. Good array of plants too!More

A lovely little gem of a place. Worth the drive out. We popped in for a cuppa, lovely staff. Went off for a drive and came back for lunch an hour or so later because it was so nice. We both had quiche with salad,...coleslaw and chutney. Food was lovely, staff friendly. Then we decided to pick up some scones to take with us. They came packed with little tubs of cream cheese, chutney and knifes. We bought a slice of bara brith each to go, then realised we could buy a loaf so they were happy for us to swap for the whole cake. Very kind and accommodating and reasonably priced! Highly recommend. Thanks.More

Wonderful place! We have been twice in last week. Once had scrumptious fresh cheese scones with cream cheese and chutney & generous amounts of fresh cafetière coffee . Today 4 of us really enjoyed soup, toasted sandwiches, quiche, cream scones. Delicious, served at table in...attractive quiet garden. Even loo has pretty flower arrangement. Can buy locally made produce too. Many thanksMore

It was brilliant - tiny but perfect. So lovely to sit within the garden whilst having food and drink. Very dog friendly and the team were very welcoming. Highly recommend a visit if you’re in the area!

Lovely location and very pretty setting. The lady who served us was lovely. If the quality of the food matched up it would be 5/5. We ordered tapas which had olives, bread, tomatoes and olives, no meat and the bread wasn’t crusty. The quiche was...very disappointing and what I would call soggy. The mozzarella panini was OK. Have a look at your menu and focus on the lovely vegetables and salads you are growing in your beautiful garden !More
