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.

What a lovely place, friendly staff and gorgeous food. Very busy and had to wait for table as party of four. Staff kept us up to date and once we got table the service was excellent. Food and drink very good, lovely ambience.

The food was good once it arrived- there was a very long wait, although it was a busy Saturday with a Christmas market going on so we expected it to be honest. My milkshake arrived but no tea. After a very long wait I had...to get up and ask where it was but there was no apology for the delay. I know what others mean by the service- it wasn’t rude, but it wasn’t friendly. There were no smiles greeting us as we entered, and we had to ask to have our order taken, and when it was it was all rather perfunctory. We don’t visit Bishop’s Stortford that often so when we’re next in town we’ll probably try elsewhere because of that.More

We were quickly shown to an available table. Then completely ignored. Staff were walking past all the time and even though we tried to get their attention they ignored us. After 20 minutes we saw someone coming towards us only to go to the table...next to us, who came in after us to take their order. We then decided to leave. Such disappointing customer serviceMore

The drinks and food were nice. Shame about the rude standoffish staff! After initially just ordering drinks, we decided to have something to eat. It was busy and after trying to attract a member of staff from our table unsuccessfully. My friend approached a waitress...as she was going back inside to ask if we could order food, to which she was answered with an attitude of “we take orders in order of who has come in first”! We explained we just wanted to make aware we wanted food to be blanked. We waited another 10 minutes and asked a waitress who was just standing if we could order and she said I’ll get someone, which we thought was strange as she’s a waitress?! Then another waitress came out who’d originally served us and said “I thought you said just drinks’ in a brusque manner. We did continue to order food. But on paying it all seemed like we were just an inconvenience with rolls of eyes. Having frequented several times and this bring my first cafe choice out of the many in the area, we will not be returning! I’m not sure why they all seemed so standoffish and it’s certainly not the service I would expect to receive. Overall nice food, shame about the service from some staff!More
