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 fancied a cooked breakfast and decided to try the blue door. It was genuinely excellent. The bacon was thick and delicious, sausages were great and mushrooms perfectly cooked. The staff were charming and patient....wholeheartedly recommend!

I always make sure to visit the Blue Door when in Newport. Always serves excellent coffee, it used to be Blue Mountain and now it's Lavazza. Quaint, great selection of home made style cakes, jacket potatoes and sandwiches. Prime position in Newport on the shopping...square. What's not to like. Part of my trip to Newport always :)More

Working in hospitality myself I always notice when I get good service, the key to being good is to just be yourself. The young blonde lady who served us was smiley, complimented me and was bubbly and approachable, which puts the customers at ease ,...my bacon Brie and cranberry roll was of good size with plenty of filling . We spoke to the manager on the way out who was also just as friendly. So on my next visit to Newport , this cafe is worth a visit .More

We went twice! We abandoned the traditional Full English for an incredible warm waffle with a thick slice of goat cheese topped with walnuts and honey. Divine! Melting cheese and slightly caramelised sugars. Later we had the cream tea served with warm crumbly scones. Plenty...of clotted cream. Sadly the jam was more a gel than homemade strawberry but it’s all a matter of preference. Staff are welcoming and helpful.More

We stopped off for liquid refreshments whilst shopping. My husband had a large coffee, I had a cold drink. We sat outside in the sunshine with our drinks, which were delivered by a friendly young waitress. I would have left a 5 star review as...it was very pleasant sitting there with our drinks. However, we were somewhat surprised when a young waitress approached our table and asked us if we minded leaving as soon as we had finished our drinks, as someone else might want to sit down. There was nobody waiting to be served and two tables were unoccupied so I was somewhat surprised. But she then approached the table next to us and asked the two older ladies the same thing. One lady protested that she still had half her latte, and the girl told her that was ok but could they leave when they had finished. It ruined the ambiance for us so we got up and left. For this reason I have a rating of 3 as we wouldn’t have ordered there if we had known we were expected to rush our drinks and leave.More

No, you don’t have to book, but it can get really busy as it’s very popular. There’s seating both indoors and outside.
