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.

Absolutely terrible service. Ordered panini and icecream in cone. Panini arrived and I was then told to wait at the icecream cabinet and someone would serve me. I stood there for 10 minutes and was totally ignored! I then asked the lady that was cleaning...the bench if someone was going to serve me. Reply: I didn’t know you were waiting. 3 staff all saw me standing there. Felt like they were all fighting over who does what?? Very cold atmosphere.More

Stopped here en route for Kaikoura for a quick cuppa. Sat outside in the sunshine. Can’t comment on the food although it looked good. Busy, which says it all!

Great food, but used Prezzy Card/Visa and they charged us TWICE, said it had not gone through, but it had! Did not find out until we tried to use what we expected balance on card to be today, after we got back to Blenheim. Checked...online and saw they had charged at 11.33 a.m. and then again at 11.36 a.m. Will be phoning them today, and update this Review. BlenheimMore

Terrible service, ordered two farmers breakfast and asked for mushrooms separately. I was going to give them to my partner 🤢. Asked twice to make sure they were separate. They arrived at the table thrown all over the toast. The rude and unhelpful waitress said...it will be fine and walked off. She needs a personality transplant. You make a request when ordering you expect it to be done. Will never go back. Food was under average anyway. Over cooked eggs, bacon that need a chainsaw to cut.More

Picked up some pies on the way home to CHC and got in the car to eat as we drove, we voted them the worst pies ever!! Pie warmer pies tasted like stiff pastry and lumps of meat and one was soggy! - we ended...up throwing them out, even our 14 year old who eats everyone's leftovers said "no thanks" Would not recommend sorry!!More
