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.

I have previously visited before they change management, and won't be returning after today's vist. Arrived at 12 45pm, was queuing for over 15 minutes as service was so slow. Finally got to till to be told by a miserable member of staff with no...smile on her face that they have stopped serving food, no sign anywhere saying the time they stop food service to avoid people queuing for no reason, unles there just having drinks. She then said abruptly "are you having drinks or not." At which point I walked out and won't be returning!More

Great coffee and service but no gluten free options for food. Will go back but for coffee only which will mean return visits are very limited

We come on holiday near here and always pop into selby for breakfast. Our usual cafe is closed on a Sunday. I don’t know if it was an off day but the staff did not even crack a smile. Miserable as sin! We go stared...at like we were aliens when we walked in. The food was nice but the service was, erm miserable. One of the female staff members was heard complaining it was her day off and she was in, and boy could you tell she wasn’t happy! A young lad came in at 10 to, I assume to pot wash etc and the 2 staff already in there ignored him. We won’t be returning, would rather starve! 🙄More

Been going in the Hub for years. Unfortunately since changing hands, the coffee isn’t the same, people no longer go in for breakfasts as they used to, as they are not as good.

We tend to pop in to this establishment for snacks. Staff are helpful and welcoming and tables cleaned regularly and in some areas have screened bays. The food has always been well cooked and presented

Really impressed by how this place are managing the COVID restrictions. Felt really safe throughout and the Big Breakfasts we had were excellent too, especially the black pudding. Staff were friendly and attentive. Lovely spot for breakfast after a few miles on the cycle route....Would recommend.More

Lovely staff here at The Hub, most of the patrons are local, more mature group, so zero bad language or attitude. Fabulous coffee and snacks, free morning papers too.

My wife and I used to pop in here for a nice cup of coffee whenever we were in Selby but have been able to since Lockdown. The Hub has recently re-opened and has taken all measures necessary to make everyone safe with screens between...tables and conter top screens to separate staff and costomers. Very well done to the owners for their measures and for making customers welcome again. Unfortunately disposable paper cup but fully understand.More

First visit... we were mother daughter and two grandchildren, we sat at the first table next to the counter so we could order and still see the children.... who were very well behaved holding the laminate menus that were on plastic stands. The lady that...was serving us broke of to serve something to someone else came back and said to my daughter can I take the menu’s of the children as they are £15 each (the stands are at most £2 and the laminated piece of paper does not cost £13) my daughter just said whatever as we were a little taken aback by this, she took them from the children which made the little one upset, I just said to the lady you are not very kid friendly and we left, it goes without saying we will never go back or recommend it to anyone.More

Called in for lunch on Saturday and was pleasantly surprised. We found a table and ordered breakfast, jacket potato, coffee and chocolate milk shake. Was served quickly and the staff were very friendly. Will say was slightly disappointed by the jacket potato which came on...it’s own in a dish, no side salad or greenery. My husband’s breakfast was very good and came with two rounds of toast with jam and marmalade. Please support this local, independent cafe if you are visiting Selby and we will come back again.More

We visited this cafe for a snack and sat where we could see the food preparation!! It took an age for our food to arrive and it was only soup and a sausage roll. It was nice when it arrived but the time we waited...gave us the opportunity to watch the food being prepared. the lady who was cooking was constantly coughing over what she was handling and we noticed she had very red nail varnish on. She went into the back and came out carrying two items which looked a bit like fish cakes and put them on the counter (no plate) she then went into the food cabinet and selected what looked like sausages and licked them up with her bare hands and added them to the other items on the counter, i think these items were part of a breakfast. The cutlery was stored with their blades, prongs, bowls upwards so everyone touched them while selecting their knives, forks or spoons. I cleaned mine with a napkin. Then there was a young lady making a milk shake and when the ice cream would not come out of the scoop she pushed it out with her finger and then when she put marshmallows on top of the cream and they started to fall off she pushed them back on with her hand. Finally the toilets were covered in cobwebs, but I suppose they don't earn them any money. The food was nice and a young man who was collecting dishes was very pleasant but the hygiene left a lot to be desired.More
