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 visited this wonderful, friendly cafe for a few years now with family and friends , it’s become one of our favourites - especially my dads !!!! Fabulous home cooked food, with plenty of choice - certainly the best place in Accrington ! A...‘must’ visit place if you ask me !! Always a friendly welcome from Andrea and Sean and their staff ! Highly recommend 👍More

We were recommended to have breakfast here by our landlord of the hotel we were staying in for 2 nights who do not serve food. They have a massive choice for breakfast including vegetarian options and the staff were friendly and helpful. It's obviously very...popular but we managed to get a table for 6 of us, we all chose different breakfasts and everyone commented of how tasty everything was and served piping hot. We were so impressed that we came back the next morning not bothering to try anywhere else. As an added bonus the food and drinks are extremely reasonably priced but definitely not lacking in quality. I would definitely recommend this cafe.More

We went here on a recommendation and it did not disappoint. There is plenty to choose from on the menu and the pies are homemade. We both chose the mince & onion pie (which was a decent size) one was with chips and the other...with roast potatoes, then there was broccoli and carrots and it was absolutely delicious. The staff are lovely too. Definitely go back again.More

I cannot praise this superb Place too highly. Went in for first time for breakfast. It was perfection! I had the full English my wife the smaller version. The quality of the cooking was exceptional as were all the ingredients. I realise people might think...yes a breakfast is a breakfast. Not so. I’ve nothing to do with is establishment but please beat a path to their door. The whole bill including drinks was £15. We will definitely be back…with family and friendsMore

I called in for breakfast at around 9.15am. The Cafe was empty and I sat in a seat where I could see the TV while eating. I was then asked to move to a small table and told it gets busy at 10am. Bearing in...mind this is 9.15 and I'm just eating my breakfast and leaving. There were still plenty of empty tables when I left. I won't be going again.More
