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 place for great food. We actually travel about 20 miles just for a breakfast here and then back home. The food is always hot, you are never waiting long. The food is served with a smile (and a curse to me as...I play up the lady who cooks the food). It is nice to find a place that are happy to exchange foods to suit preference. I have no egg and no black pudding and add extra bacon and extra sausage, my wife has no black pudding and extra egg. We sometimes go all in and have the super large. It is a great place to go to, the staff are amazing and friendly. We have a laugh with the staff and it is just a great atmosphere there. Each person is welcomed and it is truthful friendliness. Thanks all. See you soon.More

This is a great place for an amazing breakfast. We come here regular and travel a reasonable distance to get there. We only have a breakfast here as it is really nice. There are some staff here who are fun characters and have banter with...customers causing a nice atmosphere. They remember customers. The food turn around is good as this place can get busy and when the food does come out, it comes out nice and hot. We are not truckers but for those that are, there is parking with a meal voucher, showers, toilets. Easy access to get to. Well worth a visit. Have a big breakfast, it is worth it.More

Well once again we visited here, it is pretty much a weekly occurrence. The staff are always friendly, I get played up by a certain member of staff who knows who she is ha ha... She plays me up as I do not have an...egg. However, although I do not like egg, my wife tells me that the person who does the egg (not allowed to mention names) does a perfect egg. There are no faults to this place. There is plenty of parking, the breakfast is top and now and again we treat ourselves to a piece of cake. I can not rate this place enough and considering we travel nearly 20 miles just for a breakfast it tells people just how good it is.More

From the reviews I expected this to be better than it was but in truth it was just an average cafe in almost every way. Inside it’s a bit basic and cramped and had little to make it stand out from hundreds of other places....The food was pretty standard stuff but that’s not a criticism it’s just how these places are - it’s a place for a fry up pure and simple and there is nothing wrong with that. The ingredients used are clearly selected for a price and are just ok. Can’t fault the size of the portions as they were generous and I think that’s the issue. I would suggest that on the sliding scale of quantity versus quality the customers here are firmly in the quantity camp. So, in summary, if you want a big ok fry up then this will hit the bill. If you like decent coffee and a fry up that uses good ingredients then maybe look elsewhere. The place was pretty busy so clearly they have a market and are serving that market well. Houses for courses I guess.More

Love this place!! My partner took me here to get some food as it somewhere he visits whilst working and we have been regulars every since Don’t go here if you expect posh remember it is a truckers cafe, although a lot of people in...there are not just truckers, I can not fault the service or the people who work in there. You can choose to eat in or take food away I have to say the food is yummy I have never been disappointed, you receive very generous portions, the customers and staff are friendly, it is easy to order and the range of food offered is excellent, you get good value for money and your meals are served quicklyMore

We love this place and we do drive about 15 miles each way just for a breakfast. On this occasion we chose a mixed grill. Whilst it was really really nice as usual we did think that the value for money was not as good...as the breakfast. Could be a bit cheaper. However, nice and enjoyable.More

Once again we have had a great experience. On this occasion the place was VERY busy... It was so busy that we pulled over in the car to work out where to park. Hard to find space for a car. The guy driving round checking...the trucks stopped and asked us if we were here to eat and told us where we could park as certain trucks were there for the night. Someone pulled out anyway and we parked. Looking through the window we saw it was very busy and considered driving somewhere else but we had driven for a good breakfast and went in. The server was quick and efficient. One thing I love about this place is the fact they have no problem exchanging things. I do not eat egg and when asked they are happy do do sausage or bacon (the place up the road will not exchange egg for meat or other items, you have to choose specific)... Truckers Rest have NO problem with the exchange. The order was taken well considering us making mistakes making the order. We got our drinks and headed to the table. Tables are cleaned quick so there are no dirty tables. The staff here are friendly and not automated (like a nearby un-named place). Even at the time we went when it was busy as there were a lot of people in there and the kitchen must have been very busy. The food was coming out regular and people were being served pretty quick, our turn came and we were not waiting that long at all. The food came out hot and fresh and we were told there were 4 toast and not to fight over it lol... Service with a smile an a little banter too. Once again it was worth it and we really enjoyed the food. The fact they can still be happy friendly and efficient at a very busy time just shows how good this place is. I totally recommend it to anyone truckers or someone who just wants a good breakfast. I REALLY want to try one of their cooked meals as I see them pass me but the breakfast is soo good. Whilst doing this review I may consider the 15 or so mile drive to get there tonight and try a meal. The staff can not miss us, we have the Bug on our jackets. The only fault about this place is the food is not 24hours and some times we work late and it is sad to know this place is not open later as it is difficult to find late night food places of this quality. In the past we turned up at closing time. Most places would have turned us away or pretended that they did not see us through the window as there are things blocking their view and they came up to the window and beckoned us over. They unlocked the door and said what would you like. We were invited in and they cooked the food for us. They are so good at what they do and we will be back real soon. People will see by other reviews that I am a fussy person where quality and service is important to me. The fact I can only complain about it not being 24hrs (or at least longer hours) is a bonus for them.... P.S. Photos included were after I started eating.... Choice... photo or eat.... EAT!!!! lolMore
