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.

This little cafe goes the extra mile to make your experience really pleasant. The coffee was very good quality and our cakes were so nicely presented and very tasty. We had our morning tea on a table outside but the interior is really lovely and welcoming and the staff were very courteous and pleasant. After a road trip where so many cafes were pretty ordinary and slapdash, a good one like the Catching Pen really stands out.

After making the mistake of stopping in Woodville to try and find decent food on our way to Napier from Wellington, we checked out the reviews of The Catching Pen and swung by for lunch. Initially there weren’t many tables available, so we sat outside while trucks roared by as we hit some keys on the out-of-tune piano sitting on the footpath outside. As we were waiting, some tables freed up inside so we wandered in and enjoyed the decor while we waited. It wasn’t long before our food and coffee arrived, and it was absolutely delicious. we had the keto meal with eggs, bacon and mushroom while the kids enjoyed wedges and fish n chips. The bathroom was clean, and staff were lovely and friendly. this will definitely be our place to stop next time we travel this journey.

Thanks to great reviews, this was our place of choice en route to Hawke's Bay. What a great gem this cafe is in Dannevirke. As we had not long before eaten breakfast prior to leaving home, this was the perfect coffee stop. Coffee was great, service was welcoming and friendly. We loved the photographic mural on the wall. The cabinet food looked great and so did menu food, that we saw others enjoying. We will be stopping on our homeward journey.

The atmosphere is nothing unique but the food was quite tasty and reasonably priced. Unfortunately I got given a latte instead of the flat white I paid for - despite specifying "no froth please" at the time I ordered it (which I shouldn't even have to do). When I graciously pointed this out to the young maori girl (incompetent minimum wage employee) who made it, she responded by slandering me to her older co-worker. I saw it all girl! BUT, thankfully I still have a free will and can CHOOSE where I go and whom I give my money to - and it definitely won't be this undeserving cafe.

Good coffee on our stop. Much appreciated as very little on these roads. Took time to make it properly and the place was very busy

The food is excellent and cooked perfectly. Surprisingly creative with menu that could satisfy almost any variety or appetite.

We had breakfast here and were so impressed! I had the eggs Benedict with spicy chicken and saracha hollandaise, super tasty and a generous portion. My partner had the big brekky which filled him up and had great quality ingredients. Couldn’t resist a salted caramel slice for the road :) a super indulgent start to a weekend away.... diet starts Monday!

Stopped for lunch with friends. The food was delicious but don’t expect it too arrive quickly. It was worth the wait. The coffee was ok and the service lovely.

This little gem has it all, service, quality food, reasonable prices and comfortable atmosphere. This place is the real deal. I called in late on a Wednesday afternoon for coffee, tea, bite to eat and a business meeting halfway between offices. In these uncertain times, wouldn’t it be great if travellers took the time to stop and support these small businesses instead of speeding through small towns only supporting the large multinationals dispensing mediocrity. Take the challenge!!

An excellent stop for breakfast. Not a huge menu but what we had was delicious. Poached eggs with avocado and mushrooms and a quiche! Yum! Hot chocolate was superb
