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.

Ordered scrambled eggs with mushrooms on the side… sorry the chef is allergic to mushrooms we don’t serve mushrooms. Ok fair enough. So I asked for halloumi cheese on the side, which was on the menu for other breakfast dishes. Was told by the waitress...I’ll have to check with the chef. Chef said no “we don’t do add ons” because they have had customers not want to pay extra for add ons. Told them I was happy to pay extra, nope wouldn’t budge. Wow, have never experienced this in any cafe or restaurant in my life. Order exactly as per the menu, you can’t modify anything. They are just turning away money. Someone else I was with asked for a simple modification to their order and the waitress said can you please just keep it simple for the chef, he has had a big week! What a joke, I think you are in the wrong industry mate. Heard other patrons try and modify their order, no they wouldn’t do it. Too hard to add on a side of something. Staff were friendly but obviously the kitchen is the issue, very unprofessional, good coffee though. Wouldn’t go back again.More

We met family members here for a quick lunch and we were pleased with what was served up from a very good menu. Friendly customer service and large portions served up ensured a very enjoyable lunch experience. A large menu and we ordered and received...our meals in very good time, with well presented plates full of fresh produce and very tasty indeed. A very good lunch experience and is recommended.More
