We stopped for lunch after a visit to the castle. With the Covid restrictions the main room was not open but the covered garden area was lovely. We were served by very cheerful staff. All Covid measures were in place and followed. I had the...cottage pie and my wife had the lasagna. The portions size was very good and the flavour excellent. We followed with scones with jam and cream again very good. Dogs are also catered for.More

Following our visit to Dunster Castle we stopped here for a cream tea, the cafe is very quirky set in a small courtyard but that gives it a bit of character. The cream teas were nice and the staff very friendly.

We loved this Coffee House. Thoroughly recommend it to readers and suggest they wait patiently for a free table, due to Covid-19 precautions, as the delay is worth it. Lovely food, very friendly staff. The cakes are baked locally (the Bakewell Tart was a star)...and the lovely scones, baked on premises. Very dog friendly too. Staff happy to suggest places to visit and restaurants/pubs to eat at.More

We ordered Somerset cream tea for 2 with a latte and earl grey tea. Girls were friendly and helpful. When the cream tea arrived my partner and I both looked at each other...in the west country the main part of a cream tea is in...the title ...CREAM!! There was 2 scones each which were lovely but the cream came in the same size dish as the jam and that wasn't huge! There was just enough for 2 scones so we had to ask for more cream and this time the dish was half the size!. If the owner has a problem with cream portions then I think he needs to look at putting the price up a little. While we were there 10 people came in, sat on 2 tables 9/10 ordered cream teas and then all hell let loose...the staff couldn't work out how many scones they needed and realised they didnt have enough so someone set to bake some more, the girls couldn't work out the drinks ...it was all a bit chaotic. We paid our bill and to completely finish us off they overcharged us. They really do need to get sorted before the season starts properly...there are lots of tea rooms in Dunster and I'm sorry to say we wont be returning!!More

Compact and bijou this little eatery was warm and welcoming when our family of five dropped in for a quick lunch on Saturday. The service was extremely prompt given that the food was cooked to order and I can heartily recommend the all day breakfast...which was beautifully cooked and generous especially washed down with a good cup of hot filter coffee. Others in our party enjoyed home-cooked Cottage Pie and Burger meals all finished off with relish! Our dog was also made welcome with a couple of doggie treats though she clearly fancied a nibble of the toddler at the next table (our apologies to the couple and their child) The bill was a very reasonable £35 and we didn't need to eat again for the rest of the day!More

A great spot for lunch if you’re in Dunster. Managed to accommodate my party of 5 adults and 6 children despite its tiny size. Delicious food and lovely staff.

The lady made us feel so welcome. We were able to take our dogs in and they were well looked after with a bowl of water, doggy treats and nice strokes! The food was good and reasonably priced. Will certainly make a return visit.
