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.

Such a lovely little cafe with outside seating. All food was incredibly fresh and yummy. We sat outside and enjoyed our breakfast alfresco. I had the avocado with poached eggs and potato cubes. Staff highly attentive. Excellent for breakfast!

Dropped into Lark today having not been for a while. Was a regular diner when formly The Lovely Food Company. I was very disappointed with my Chicken Burger that I ordered. The burger deep fried was too hard to bite into and even as tough...when cutting with a knife. The chips were re heated and overall a very dissatisfying lunch. I returned it uneaten and in fairness to the Management wasn't charged and an attempt was made to rectify. Hopefully next time improvements are made and my experience and review will be alot more positive.More

I visited this place on Friday at 1PM It used to be the Lovely food company but now called Lark The menu seemed to indicator that breakfast was served till 3 or maybe 4PM maybe I misread this ? But on their website it says...breakfast till later at weekend, so they obviously don't include Friday as the weekend, but either way when we asked we where told flatly NO. And then had to wait another 10 minutes for our order to be taken as they seemed to have forgotten us as they took orders from newer customer Eventually we ordered a roll each but after about 15 minutes there was no sign of our food so we asked as we where just on a lunch break from work and we told the chief was preparing it and it will be about 5 minutes more as they where busy ? About 15 minutes after our food arrived We made a complaint to somebody who looked like the manager ? And while he said they where very sorry he didn't seem that interested really Anyway we ate and paid and left but unfortunately they have lost my return visit as I used to go their regularly before Covid a very unhappy customer BrianMore

We arrived at this nice looking coffee shop today. We were passing by and liked the look of it. So we decided to try it out, so we went to park up as we were on our bycicles. As we were parking up at around...3.30 pm, We were if you want to call it greeted by a woman who pulled the blinds down on us and said that they were closing. She was so rude as the door was wide open as we were standing outside. I'm not sure what her problem was, as we were just looking for a cake or scone as they had an abundance of them, but she seemed not to want our custom, so I just drove away as I have never experienced this kind of heavy handed approach to dealing with customers. I will not even go back to try it now as I am still in shock from her behaviour. We are just out of lockdown and I was thinking people in business want to make money. Obviously I am mistaken. Well I'm still in shock, so I will have to get my head around it. Regards, Ms Schmidt.More

We ordered the Friday night take away. Two starters, two main courses, two deserts and a bottle of wine all for €50. More food than the two of us could see, exceptional quality. Staff were lovely thank you.
