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.

We hadn’t eaten in here since 2018 and on subsequent visits to Glasson have dined “al fresco” from the van as we didn’t think the vibe in here was particularly nice last time. What an improvement. Professional and enthusiastic service. It was chilly outside and...the Quayside gave us a warm welcome in more ways than one! There were several breakfast options available and me being rather partial to the biggest thing available - chose that! Everything on the plate was lovely but the bacon and sausages in particular were top quality. Glasson was quite quiet so we had a leisurely time in here which gave us the opportunity to benefit from the hot drink refills. Clean - with decent loos. Will definitely head in here (if we can) during our next visit to Glasson Dock! Bravo.More

Great fish and chips and probably the best value gin and tonic in the UK! Cosy cafe with attentive service. The desserts looked fabulous but so was the calorie count! Purchased local bakery produce.

This is my third time visiting & it’s really lovely. The food is delicious & the staff are so very warm & welcoming. The only downside for me personally is allowing dogs inside. There was a dog who wouldn’t stop barking & another that smelled...terrible & slobbered all over the floor. It did put me off I’m sorry to say. However, I will return in the future but will stay outside in the lovely seating area they have.More

We were looking for a cafe before our walk and found here. Wonderful warm friendly welcome even though it was very busy. Polite and chatty servers. Totally clean and cared for and cosy. The food coming out of the kitchen all looked fantastic so it...was tricky to choose. The coffees were beautiful and so well presented. Our food was delicious! Really unexpected and so well presented like a restaurant. My husband had the potato cake stack which was incredible. Worth travelling out there just for the food ! And so reasonably priced.More

The Quayside is in the heart of Glasson Dock village, at one end of the walking/cycle path from Lancaster and the Lune Valley. It is a favourite cycling destination for us, with outside and inside seating, friendly service and delicious food. They serve a range...of breakfast-type dishes, fish and chips, baked potatoes, quiches and soups, with a huge range of desserts and cakes. All home cooked from locally sourced ingredients. The eggs royale, with local smoked salmon, (smokehouse is around the corner) is highly recommended. They also serve wines and locally brewed beer. This is a very popular venue, and it is clear why.More
