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.

Just got back from another great breakfast with my lad. A good old English cafe that clearly prides itself on its food and service. My 14 year old is the worlds biggest food critic and he rates the Carousel as the best breakfast.

totally underrated and ignored by the Cleveleys community yet the food is half the price and twice as good as anywhere else in Cleveleys, the menu is extensive, and all the ingredients are fresh and cooked in-house. the only letdown is it shuts too early...meaning those who finish work at 4.30 pm miss out and cinema-goers can't use it as a pre-cinema meal, they often close before the advertised time. it is the best place to eat in Cleveleys without a doubt.More

We came as a coach load from Greater Manchester and were treated to some delightful fish, chips, peas, bread and butter and hot drinks (very welcome after the sea air was cool!). The fish was cooked to perfection, as were the crispy chips. Flexibility was...no problem for extras or changes. The service was friendly. A very pleasant experience. Well done to the staff. I'm sure we'll be back.More

Have to say my socks have been blown off with this little gem. Son and Daughter in law went in the summer - loved it. So mum and dad tried it today and just loved it. I had steak pie and wife had cottage pie....Both really tasty, fresh veg and homemade chips. Good portion size and freshly made, they were both really tasty. Freshly made trifle to finish, pot of tea for two and the lot was under £28 Fantastic value.More
