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.

Lovely cafe with friendly staff and good quality cakes. But today it was like a dog sanctuary. Dogs smell and the dog at the next table kept jumping up at me. Are dog owners so selfish!? Surely dogs shouldn’t be in cafes where people are...eating? How can that be hygienic? Shops like Next don’t even allow them in, but places serving food?? The waitress couldn’t even serve at the next table as the dog kept getting in the way. Will probably not go back due to that policy. Shame.More

I have been going to curious cafe for many years and have enjoyed my coffee, food and the atmosphere on every occasion. Whilst visiting on Sat 13th Jan around 1pmish I noticed a gentleman put his full hand into the tub of mini brownies without...using the tongs, even though the tongs where there. Albeit the brownies were going into a liquidiser it was still unpleasant to see whilst waiting for my take away coffee, especially as his hand had touch other brownies in the tub. I politely decline mine on this occasion. I feel this gentleman is letting the cafe, and the rest of the staff, who are all amazing and work very hard down. A quiet word to the member of staff should hopefully stop this from happening again. Hence the reason I still rated the 4 stars.More

We had to queue to get in for over half an hour, we needed a table for 4. However it was well worth the wait. The food was fantastic.

The service was very friendly, efficient and quick. We had chilli beef on chips with cheese. Lovely lean chunks of beef and chips homemade. Flexibility on the menu. Wouldn't definitely recommend and go again. This place was recommended by my son who had previously had...a good experience.More

Great coffee, great food and lovely staff. We generally treat ourselves to the cheese scone with caramelised onion and a dollop of sour cream. Butter also comes with it, but we decline that. This is absolutely delicious. The other food on offer also looks very...tempting. Well worth a visit if you are in the area.More

Stopped for lunch here on the spur of the moment as our usual coffee stop was closed. The staff were friendly and the service was very quick even though the place was full. The food was delicious and home cooked and a good choice of...cakes which I will leave room for next time.More

Always get great food here, staff are rushing but we always get great service. Thanks for feeding us most weekends!! Quirky decor, eggs Benedict is the top choice. Coffee and hot chocolates are fabulous, and always have a few different brownies to choose from.

Party of four called for drinks and something to eat and sat outside on benches with a clean table. Three of us had bacon sandwiches and were bowled over by the amount of bacon inside. One of our party wanted gluten free bread and this...wasn’t a problem. The coffee was good and strong without being overpowering and bitter. We haven’t been here for a few years due to poor service but today’s crew were on the ball. They were friendly, knowledgeable and efficient and the drinks / food arrived quickly. Paying the bill was unusually quick too. A very pleasant sojournMore
