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.

I stopped at Kellys, which has been good in the past. I waited and waited and waited in the queue at the hot food section with people walking round me. Finally I asked was I at the wrong section and was told "Wait for x"....Finally I ordered. I was hungry and probably overordered. I ordered a bagel with spicy mexicanpork and a side plate of 2 salads. I did not realise that the bagel came with a salad, the one I was avoiding as it had dried fruit in it (cranberries). I sat outside. My tea when it came was cold and horrible and the bagel was so over toasted it was chewy and you could have broken your teeth on it The pork was tastless dry and chewy. terre was no sign of any sauce ? spicy. The lettuce in the overtoasted bagel was brown and the rest wilted. The salads on the other plate were completely tasteless, appeared to have a bit of vegetable oil on them and no seasoning.I gave the bagel back on the grounds of inedible and was offered a refund " but you have to go in"., I took a ham and cheese baguette . I said no toasting please and wrap it to go. That baguette was horrible, overpowering dollop of relish, chewy bready bread and plastic cheese. I ate a few bites and took half of it and the salad with me. I think btw the baguette was cheaper than the inedible bagel. I got to my friends and gave her the half baguette and salad. She pronounced both awful, she said bread bready and overpowering relish. Avoid this place. I bought a takeaway load of bread and takeaway pate. Both were good. Its whatever they are doing in the kitchenMore

Always loved coming here but recently found the service bordering on rude. Particularly poor today not a please, thank you in or an even acknowledgement when ordering/paying. An awful shame as food and location is lovely.

I recently tried this restaurant and It was amazing. Very friendly welcoming staff. Great menu choice. I was intolerant to something that came with my order and the staff member gave me an alternative which was very nice. The food was very nice and well...presented. Great cakes and coffees too. Lovely atmosphere. I highly recommend Kelly’sMore

The food is quite expensive for what you get, and seating area has hard surface and roof so very noisy, extremely loud. How we were treated by some of the people working there was very poor. Not many choices in that part of town but...would go to McDonald’s over Kelly’s next time as at least there you are treated well.More

Dining here is always a pleasure so it was greatly missed during Covid lockdown. While their takeout meals are delicious and a good substitute they lacked the greater experience of "dining in" at the cafe and maybe having a nice main followed by a yummy...desert and a good coffee. Its great to returning to norma.More

Have had a few good experiences here in the past. Last Sunday we visited at 4.15 p.m. Staff were totally disinterested in serving us. There were only two people in front of us and only one girl serving. It took 15 minutes before we got...the ask for our food. Eight people behind us at that stage!!! There were four other staff who were busy cleaning. If you don't want clients after 4 p.m. please close at 4 p.m. and don't have clients waiting. As they didn't have our first, second or third choice we decided to leave. We cannot comment on the food, therefore. Please don't visit after 4 p.m.on Sundays as you will be disappointed.More

My husband and I visited here for breakfast. There was a long line of people queuing so that their order could be taken. After 20 minutes in the queue we noticed the lady taking the orders kept disappearing! When we got closer we could see...that she was trying to take orders and then serve the customers when the food was ready. Whilst this lady is flying around there are 3 people standing watching her! Because the service was so slow there was nobody moving in the line to order tea/coffee hence the three idle staff. Very badly managed. I noticed people giving up and leaving! Food lovely and kudos to the lady taking the orders she has a lovely smile and is very welcoming.More

Went there for weekend lunch and place was quite busy. Service friendly and we just made the breakfast with only 5 minutes to spare. OH went for the pancakes with maple syrup and pecan nuts. They were superb, the pecan nuts working really well as...a counterpoint to the sweetness of the syrup. Simple addition that works very well.More
