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.

OH YUMMY! Eat in or indulge on their delicatessen take home, which we did. Beautiful bread, ham, olives, salami, chorizo and my favourite Snowdonia cheese albeit there are other choices. Quiche, lasagne, cakes ❤️ Or Eat In, equally as lovely.

A lovely coffee shop and deli counter. Staff were welcoming and attentive. Only went in for a coffee but was tempted by the raspberry and lemon cake that on offer. It was delicious, would highly reccommend it. Lovely atmosphere and we weren't hurried once we'd...finished coffee. We'll worth a visit.More

Lovely deli with great service. Perfect for a light lunch whilst in Beccles. We had a ploughman's and a sausage sandwich which we both great. Other diners around us food looked great as well.

My wife and I had a delightful lunch. The food was fresh and beautifully presented. My wife had moussaka and I had a ciabatta with chicken and bacon. We were made to feel very welcome, my wife has an intolerance and this was checked on...before she ate and this was much appreciated. We shall certainly return. Thank you.More

When visiting Beccles please check out this Gem of a Restaurant and Delicatessen. Superbly situated at Hungate in the Town with obvious local trade, the establishment owes its success to it’s excellent well turned out staff. We were seated upstairs in the air conditioned loft...area, tables are well set out and the whole premises is spotlessly clean, an obvious thumbs up to its 5 star hygiene rating. The food served is of a very high standard, presented in such a way to compliment a Top Chef. I had a pasta dish which was excellent, simply the best accompanied by Penny Bun Bakehouse ciabatta. I wiped the plate clean and would certainly recommend to all. Homemade cakes with cream finished the meal. Do try the Bakewell Tart it’s a joy!More

We stumbled across Baileys and what a gem it is! We were seated upstairs (without a reservation) where there is a lovely ambience and air conditioning. All the staff were welcoming and accommodating with our foodie queries. I was impressed with the menu and I...have to say my Vietnamese prawn salad was delicious - very tasty and well presented. My friend’s soup was also good. We couldn’t resist a cake as well and a take away sausage roll for the other half! All-in-all, I can highly recommend Baileys - good value, scrumptious food, relaxing ambience and lovely staff. I’m not local but I’ll definitely be back!More

The departure of Xavier from the helm could easily have spelled disaster for this popular eating spot. It’s true, his passion for the food of his homeland, will be missed by those who remember him, but Baileys remains one of the top places to eat...in a town that punches well above its weight when it comes to places to dine. Whether you opt for their full English, an eggs Benedict or tostada, you are in for a treat. The two ladies in our party, noted the latter dish wasn’t quite as generous as it had been previously, but it remained tasty and a nice alternative to the more traditional items. While we were brunching, on this occasion, the menu has plenty of alternative dishes to cater for lunch and afternoon visitors. The platters, sourced from the shops supplies of meats, breads and pickles are always worth trying. Our group enjoyed a variety of teas and coffees and they the pleasant and unhurried atmosphere, stayed for a further round of drinks and assorted cakes. The town offers bargain basement alternatives, but while we had booked - no bad idea - for 11am, by the time we rolled out the door after running up a bill of around £20 each, we all felt we had probably eaten our main meal of the day. Not bad for brunch!More

What a lovely place Baileys is. My first visit could not have been better. A very warm, genuine welcome greeted me as soon as I set foot through the door. I chose the small English breakfast along with a coffee and sat down at a...table by the window. My order arrived in no time. Beautifully presented and simply delicious. Egg, smoked bacon, black pudding, fresh tomato, sausage, hash brown and flat mushroom. This is a very generous sized breakfast and cooked perfectly. Bought a few things from the delicatessen too. The staff could not have been more helpful and accommodating when my partner arrived concerning food allergies. This was discussed and a small gluten free breakfast was produced including gluten free ciabatta. Thank you, Baileys and here’s to the next time.More

Visited Baileys on a busy lunchtime. We took a chance on getting a table and were lucky but would recommend booking. We ate ciabatta with meatball marinara & smoked duck salad both of which were delicious and beautifully presented. Amazing value for money and so...tasty. Look forward to a return visit.More

We came with a large group of ladies . We were welcomed with friendly services. The afternoon tea was delicious, the only issue I and another member of the group had was that there was not an option of a cold drink apart from water,...we don’t drink coffee, tea or hot chocolate . But a cold cordial would have been appreciated. Not everyone drinks hot drinks.More
