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.

We called here for lunch and each had a jacket potato, mine with tuna and my daughter's with beans. The potato's were small and the skin black. The inside of the potato was quite slushy and we formed the opinion that they had been cooked...for a long time. We didn't have side salad with our lunch as it was £2.50 each extra on top of the price of the filled potato's. This is quite unusual, as every restaurant without exception we have been to, include side salad with them. My daughter said her beans were only luke warm too. We were both disappointed with the actual meals, although the service was friendly and welcoming.More

A beautifully presented tea room. Amazing afternoon tea enjoyed by a gathering of old friends. The staff are super friendly and helpful! Going above and beyond to make our special afternoon even more special! So much so that a couple of days later I brought...my sister along to sample one of the breakfasts. I feel this is going to be a regular stop from now on! Highly recommend a visit!More

On my first visit I came across this little place and went in just to waste time whilst waiting for someone. The food and drink was amazing and the atmosphere was so delightful that I went back to Aylsham just to visit this place. I...had a large mocha and when they brought it out to me I was very surprised because it was actually a large mocha not something that was only a mouthful more. The bacon sandwich was full so when it came to paying bill I felt like I had my monies worth. The atmosphere and staff were both very friendly and there was a nice buzz to the place. If you are ever in the area even if you have to wait a little for a table, it is really worth it.More

Followed the advice of a local to this restaurant and we were very pleased we did. My partners cake ,freshly made in-house that day was superb and my egg mayonnaise sandwich was chunky and delicious. Staff were friendly and the place as its name suggests...is oldie worldy but none the worse for that. As a bonus prices were very reasonable.More

What a fabulous tea room - we were in a real hurry - but our hostess, took our order immediately and made the sandwiches herself to ensure we could get on our way. With free parking nearby and the most wonderful cakes too - it...was a traditional tea room with refreshingly efficient service. Thank you!More

For 3 or 4 years we have been visiting this lovely tea rooms when-ever in the area and have always been satisfied with our visits. Then two years ago I think, it changed hands and ownership and became the property of a lady called Pam...who has transformed a 'nice place to visit' to the fantastic place that it is now. Beautiful soft grey seating and pretty crockery and the young working girls are all dressed in the same matching outfits as is Pam also. They are happy to serve and we are all happy to be served by them. Lots of places just 'do a job' but here it looks like they are all happy to be working with Pam. I can promise that once you have visited the Old Tea Rooms in Aylsham you will return again and again as do we.More

We were staying in The Ironmongers which doesn't provide breakfast despite being advertised as a boutique hotel. Old Tea Rooms was a brief stroll away, so we tried it for breakfast one Saturday. The decor and menu probably hasn't changed for decades. Menu options were...limited to cooked food, and orange juice and coffee were pricey extras. Service wasn't exactly with a smile. The cook had clearly decided that scrambled eggs didn't need seasoning and they were also overcooked. By the time we left, the premises had been taken over by older folk with bags of board games.More

This place is like going back in time, I actually do not have a problem with that, it obviously has its regular customers who all seem to know each other and the staff well. I chose to sit in the back, quieter as a rule,...have been here a few times. The service is good, welcoming and polite. I just had a cheese scone and coffee. The coffee was good, it I cannot say the same for the cheese scone, it lacked any taste of cheese, even though it was supposed to be a cheese scone. I just failed to taste any cheese. Only two portions of butter, now I have eaten cheese scones in loads of places over the years, one needs loads of butter on a cheese scone, well I do. I did not ask for more, it should have done, that would not have made the scone taste any cheesier. I went to pay but realised I had left my purse In my car, which I have NEVER done that in my life. I was fishing around my handbag, a lady who was seated near me, doing the books perhaps, she may have been the owner, said it will be fine, so with that I told the staff who said just get it and come back, this I did. I am very appreciative of the way my stupidity was handled and thank you to the staff for allowing a customer, who you did not know from Adam, to get her purse and return. I wonder how many people would not have returned?? I would probably go in there again, but not have the cheese scone. Lovely staff....good service. Thank you once again for your help in letting me settle the bill!More

Decent food, not overly expensive and friendly staff. The menu is varied enough and appreciated the fact that the WUK don’t seem to have bowed down to the pressure of modernising as this would spoil the charm. Worth a visit if you are in the...area.More
