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.

My friend and I were travelling through Duncannon and stopped in a nearby pub for food at about 12:30 in the afternoon. As we were leaving Duncannon we spotted the Wild Rose Cafe and decided maybe to go there for a coffee later in the...day. We drove to a few places last of which was Hook Head and then said we would make our way back via Wild Rose Cafe for the coffee on the way back. It was just after 3pm when we arrived back outside the cafe and we opened the door to go in. We could see a few free tables but before we could get in the door the staff member (thinking the owner) stopped us at the door and without an 'hello' or 'can I help you' the first thing he said was 'Sorry lads I have nothing for 20mins or more' and basically closed the door in our faces. Now we were completely taken aback by this as at the very least I would have expected him to ask if we were there for food or just tea / coffee. Surely if they were that busy then tea / coffee only would not have been an issue and surely if we wanted food that it was our decision to wait the 20mins or not - especially given there were free tables. I found the whole experience to be rude and offputting and I certainly won't be going near this cafe again in the future - despite the reviews on here.More

We breakfasted here twice in the week we spent in Duncannon, and enjoyed it thoroughly both times. The ladies serving were on top of their game and the place just worked well. The kitchen clearly had good people, and the whole experience just went smoothly....Hats off to them.More

Enjoyed our visits here while staying in Duncannon. It was still outdoor dining at the time of our stay so we were shown to a lovely sun terrace. The staff were so welcoming and friendly and the food was lovely. Definitely would recommend!

This is a wonderful cafe! The food is delicious, the deserts unexpectedly varied and scrumptious and the service warm and solicitous. To top it all up, the coffee is exquisite. This cafe enhanced our stay in Duncannon. Thank you!

Visited on a busy sunny Sunday afternoon and received a warm welcome. Relaxed atmosphere. Enjoyed the sun trap terrace and all covid regulations well in place. Very clean. Nice selection on the lunch menu and the food was good quality, fresh and good portion sizes....The prices remain reasonable at a time where others are charging extortionate prices at the moment. Best value family meal we have had since outdoor dining opened up again.More

I had a really gorgeous Seafood fettuccine here, it was delicious and it came with a side of garlic bread which can only be described as melt in the mouth. Decent sized portions & all reasonably priced.

We arrived here hoping we would get a table as we had not booked one and fortunately they have one. Immediately the service was outstanding as the staff showed us to a table and made sure we were looked after. The menu had a good...selection on it and we ordered what we wanted. It was soon brought to us and it was delicious. I would recommend coming to the Wild Rose Café for lunch or even just a coffee, as the service will be the same....excellent.,More

This cafe, located at the top of the village, is a must for visitors and locals alike. Whether it's a yummy breakfast or a light lunch you want, you will not be disappointed. The cafe is so well spaced out, with tip top hygiene procedures,...and serves tasty food at a very reasonable price. There is on street parking adjacent to the hotel. A very relaxing and satisfying eating experience.More
