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.

Delightful find, quirky as a tea room should be! Food is fresh and meals are cooked to order. The staff were very welcoming and cake was delicious.

The tearoom was an oasis of calm on our travel to the West Country. We sat outside in the shade under a grape vine with the flowers and butterflies. Tea came in a China tea service and we had a mixed platter for for two...to eat. Probably the most enjoyable lunch I remember having anywhere. The staff were kind and helpful. Why isn’t this place closer to homeMore

This is a lovely little tearoom for a light lunch, morning coffee or afternoon tea. We particularly liked the small outside area, which was simple but inviting. We were able to enjoy a sunny lunch with relatives, who were travelling up the M5 and could...break their journey. We loved the cheese platter and delicious cheese scones, very nice sandwiches too.More

Went into Odettes tearoom for a quick lunch on Tuesday with my daughter. The staff were extremely polite and helpful. We asked was it possible to have a salad ( which wasn't on the menu) After checking the kitchen for ingredients we were told of...course we could. In no time at all we were served with a beautifully presented and very tasty crispy bacon salad! Would definitely recommend this place and will 100% be visiting again soon!More

This was the first time myself and 2 friends visited Odette's. It is a quaint tea shop in the heart of Wellington Somerset. Upon entering the young lady greeted us with a smile. The food was cooked to order which was just perfect. Will most...definitely be returning in the near future.More

I have worked in hospitality before and for several years. I understand being stressed out due to understaffing and that receipts get lost, I’ve been guilty of losing a few orders myself. However, when a customer quite legitimately and politely asks what has happened to...their food after an hour of waiting I also know that keeping calm and being friendly and apologetic is the best policy. When my mother asked where our order was though the waitress simply shouted in her face that she “had not received an order” despite my mother being entirely non-confrontational. We were then apologised to by the waiter who explained he’d lost the receipt asked if we still wanted our food, which we did, and we explained to him we weren’t at all angry just confused. However, when the waitress came back with the food she plonked it down on the table without so much as a smile and stalked off while my mother was still thanking her and trying to sympathise that it was busy. When I then went to pay I was met with similar frostiness with the waitress claiming she’d forgotten what we ordered and not offering any compensation of any kind. It was only when we were leaving that she mumbled something to me about being “sorry again about the toast”. I understand that some customers can be aggressive and unreasonable about mistakes made and that it is hard to work in an environment that is busy and understaffed but I do feel my mother and I should have received a much better level of respect and service seeing as we had remained friendly and reasonable in spite of a staff error.More

Visited when it first opened and gave a bit of a negative review regarding price versus portion size. Have been again recently several times and happy to report that the food is definitely value for money. Have had all the variations of Eggs Benedict etc...and every time the poached eggs have been nice and runny and it is so easy I have found at different cafes to mess this up and serve them hard - not here, they have all been absolutely perfect.More
