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.

Food deserves 5 stars as it was delicious. Staff friendliness doesn’t deserve as many stars. We visited on Sunday morning and the place was quite busy. Expect to be almost thrown out once you finish eating, I didn’t even had a chance to finish my...coffee. It says on the menu that during busy periods you can have table for 1 hour, which totally get, but we were there less than 45 minutes when we were asked to leave multiple times in a row.More

A really great spot, you can feel the sense of care for ingredients and flavour, it is simple, tasty, great quality bacon, eggs and black pudding. The homemade lemonade with ginger is the perfect healthy pick me up, yummy... the service is friendly and fast,...dogs are welcome, there's a really friendly neighbourly vibe, the decor is simple and no frills but somehow feels welcoming and just right.More

I’m from Los Angeles where brunch is a religion, and without a doubt Social Fabric’s offerings are the best I’ve ever had. The Social Fry is heaven, best Irish breakfast I’ve ever had and also better than any English breakfast I’ve had in London.

We ate here Wednesday morning not knowing what to expect but on a recommendation. Outside it looks small and featureless but inside is bright, airy and seats more than you’d expect. We both had difficulty choosing as it all looked delicious. Portions were generous and...we couldn’t fault the food, flavoursome and filling. Neither of us could finish despite wanting to!!! A fab place perfect for Easter brunch.More
