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.

My first time but not for the other 3 diners, wow I'm impressed the menu and cabinet options would suit all taste bud's. Staff very friendly and perfect service no wonder it's so busy plus the coffee is the best.

A good cafe menu supported by great coffee this cafe was warm and welcoming. The food was great and the service friendly and attentive. Indoor and outdoor seating available. Large gas fire for those colder days.

A group of us had the best Brunch at the Blackstone Cafe and Bar. Even though the Café was busy we were served quickly, food was superb and the service we could not fault. Even the coffee was great. A surprise for me was finding...Eccles Cakes!!More

Should have walked out, as we weren’t greeted at all . Was reasonably busy. Had a look in the cabinet, grabbed a menu then went to a table. Went up to counter and ordered after the staff could be bothered serving. A steak sandwich and...a kiwi burger. Burger standard with fries. Steak in sandwich was cooked to blue/rare . Was ok. They obviously don’t have plates as most things were served on boards. Customer sneezing all over the table, chair and floor a table away from us, not that it was this places fault, but when the people left their table was wiped down with four other tables. No spray to be seen just a damp cloth.More

Went for dinner on a Friday night. They have a special menu for Friday nights. Tapas, mains and desserts. During the day they have meals and cabinets. It’s like they aren’t sure if they are a meal venue or a cabinet food venue. You have...to go to the counter to order. They think you are paying when you order but what if you want dessert, more drinks or coffee. I had the stuffedriadted chicken breast and vegetables. Unfortunately it wasn’t stuffed. The food was over salted and had way too much pepper. The trio of cheesecakes (raspberry, lemon and blueberry) was lacklustre. They looked good but weren’t. Coffee was good. Staff weren’t friendly or engaging. They never said come up to order. They basically ignored us for the most part. Really disappointing overall.More

Visiting the place with friends, the menu looked good with the prices fairly reasonable. Two had the lamb salad which they found ok. One had a poke salad which was slightly below ok. One had corned beef sandwich, they found the bread tough and hard...to cut. One had the kiwi burger, the patties had a strange flavour and I think they had been cooked the day before and they forgot to heat them.More

I ordered a ham and cheese omelette with toast and a flat white. They were all good. The atmosphere is comfortable and clean. I was a little surprised that toast was extra and jam for toast is also an extra charge.
