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.

J one was the NICEST food ever, went in the other day and the food was completely different must have gotten a new chef, ingredients used in the curry is just cheap McConnell’s curry and not even made properly, very watery.. when it used to...be home made and so delicious, chips were also signature with j one but now they are awful and burnt, very very disappointing as it was the only enjoyable cafe in the town and now it’s not worth the moneyMore

Lovely breakfast and great service from the young guy working there. Would be five stars but lose one for not having pure orange juice to have with the breakfast. But totally recommended.

Thank goodness for TripAdvisor. I wouldn’t have found this café if it wasn’t for it. And what a find. Beautiful properly strong coffee, the nicest staff, and a really delicious breakfast - beautifully cooked not a bit greasy. Lovely old-fashioned shop I’d guess turned into...a cafe sometime. When it comes down to experiences it’s all about the staff and the food quality, and this place is an absolute gem. There are too many expensively kitted out hipster coffee shops around, that forget about getting the basics right. Not here.More

Friendly busy cafe, obviously very popular. Slightly noisy and 'cosy' table space area.. However excellent value for money, food delicious with good portions,fast service and very clean (hence being busy!). Highly recommend.

J1 never disappoints with their food and fabulous staff. It can get a little cramped but the staff and food more than make up for the lack of space
