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.

Before we did anything else in Beccles we thought have a coffee, this place looked good on the eye from the outside, the cakes looked even better on the inside. We asked if it was dog friendly and were told walk through the cafe to...the back and we could sit in the garden, if walking through why not just have an area inside somewhere any way it was a comfy area back there. Ordered a coffee and tea cake a lemon and carrot and walnut, it came quickly and very pleasant service. Cakes were lovely just a nice slice. After enjoying our stay we paid on the way out. Now don’t get me wrong everything was good but £20 for that. It was a bit real.More

Tea and fish finger sandwich snack. Teapot was less than 2 cups. Knife and fork not clean, had to wipe them on napkin. Value for money very poor.

Lovely little Cafe in the centre of Beecles. Went with friends whilst on a boating holiday. Service is excellent, and the food (especially the Suffolk B Breakfast) was great quality, tasty and well cooked. Later in the day we also had Tea and Cake in...The Secret Garden at the back and this outside space is lovely.. Highly recommendedMore

Popped into Beccles on way home from holiday. This cafe is lovely with vintage decor, friendly staff and excellent food. Sadly we had already eaten, and just had a coffee, but the breakfast looked amazing.

Cooking and quality of food poor for the prices you pay. Ridiculously expensive for what you get. Could not eat my over cooked dry scrambled egg and mass of broken bits of packet crispy bacon. Sorry but unless I hear of a change we won’t...be back.More

Lovely little cafe with a varied menu and strong coffee. Smoothies were fabulous, ice cold and tasted freshly blended. Continental plate had the biggest croissant ever seen. The granola with fruit and coconut yoghurt was delicious (vegan). Couldn't see any gluten free options on the...menu so perhaps it's a separate menu as there were some gf brownies (£3 per brownie to take away!). Marked down a star as it was a long wait to give our order and then be served. It's a pricier cafe and so I would have expected the details to be right. No spoons provided to eat with and no one around to ask so had to use the teaspoon from the coffee. Tiny bit of butter for the breakfast which barely covered the amount of breads given. They forgot to bring the water we'd asked for. Minor quibbles perhaps, but it matters. When paying, we weren't given the bill to check and it seemed rather expensive for what we had.More

Good quality coffee and delicious cheese scone. But £16.40 for 2 flat whites and 2 cheese scones seems ridiculously expensive

We arrived in Beccles after a 10 mile walk from Oulton B-road and we needed food! We have been here once before and it didn’t disappoint. We went in and were welcomed straight away. They found us a table for 2 and we sat down...within a couple of minutes. Maria was our waitress. She was so welcoming and friendly. We ordered the steak ciabatta and I wanted a jacket potato. However, I was a little fussy and asked for no butter and the dressing in a dish. I apologised and Maria said - no don’t apologise it has to be right for you. The food was first class. It tasted so good! We didn’t have time for cake so my husband got an amazing piece of coffee and walnut to have when we got home. It really was a lovely lunch. Thank you to Maria.More

When in Beccles always make a beeline for this fabulous venue. Never had any disappointment in the past and thoroughly recommend it. The ambience is very comforting and they always appear very busy which surely is good for business. The menu is varied and they...cater for all diets. The food is delicious.More

We used to LOVE this place but it has been going slowly downhill for a while now. The food isn't a patch on what it used to be and is ridiculously priced for what you are served. Todays offering was a chewy steak ciabatta that...i couldn't bite through (returned for refund) and a half empty club sandwich haphazardly put together. All very disappointing. The staff are friendly and helpful although i think they may of forgotten us as we waited over 20mins for the food and other tables were served their food a lot faster. All in all not a good experince and we will not be returning. Pity.......what happened Twyfords???????More

Visited last Saturday...great food but not as welcoming as usual. Waitress would not let us sit in the window as she said it was only for 2 & there were 3 of us..no apologies & there clearly was enough space & a chair nearby that...we could have used. Otherwise, all good & am sure we'll be back.More

We’re locals and Twyfords is without doubt the best place to eat in Beccles. We average once a week and it’s always very good food.

Always a favourite of mine when visiting the area but went today to finally try their afternoon tea. First off it’s nice that you don’t have to book in advance like most places. We were seated in a very timely fashion by a very friendly...member of staff. She took our order and as we already knew what we were having it was dealt with quickly and efficiently. After a few moments the lovely staff member popped over to offer us a an alternative afternoon tea (the original one we ordered didn’t have exact sandwiches/cakes etc and was left to the chef to decide what we were having, which I liked the idea of!) but on the second one offered we had an exact menu of what we would be getting. We opted for the slightly more expensive second option and I am so glad we did. Everything was delicious. And whoever had the idea to put cranberries, chickpeas and walnuts together in a sandwich deserves a huge pat on the back! That combination just should not work and as I normally don’t eat chickpeas or cranberries I didn’t expect to like it, but, it was the best sandwich I have ever had. It was a bit on the expensive side but I would happily pay that again as it was evident the time and effort that went into it. We left satisfied and very full! Friendly staff and a lovely atmosphere and definitely worth a look!More
