fantastic - a restaurant that tells you to turn the mobile off. We had delicious home made soup and shepherds pie. A basic setting but very suitable for quick lunch whilst shopping or between meetings. A quiet unassuming venue.

Visited on a day trip to Axminster whilst staying locally in Lyme Regis. Very pleasant venue , friendly welcome and delicious coffee. A most enjoyable mid morning break.

Visiting Axminster on a Saturday afternoon, disappointed so many shops and ta/coffee shops close so early - this was the only one open. Staff polite and helpful, tea excellent but a tea shop in a department store may not be everyone's cup of tea!

Being fairly local we often travel down to Axminster, and these tea rooms hidden at the top of the Trinity House department store offer good well cooked food at reasonable prices. Today I had an excellent Welsh rarebit with a small salad and some really good bacon rashers. Freshly cooked and very tasty, my other half settled on Scrambled eggs... More

I had no idea where to find lunch in Axminster, but this very central department store has a first floor café with lift access. Prices were reasonable and the most expensive item was this gluten free pastry chicken pie with runner beans and carrots - real vegetables! No sweets on the menu and I asked about ice cream. Too late... More

Good seating, nice surroundings, friendly and efficient staff. Food very good and nice selection. If you sit by the window you have a great view of the town and what's going on. After your visit you can explore further in the shop.

cold and unfriendly. My companion an elderly lady had her walking stick taken off her and put out of her reach without the waitress asking if this was OK. No ambiance, wont be going there again!!

A great 'old fashioned' but NOT past it, coffee house/café in a lovely Department Store in Axminster. We visited on route from Bristol to Beer and it made a welcome break. It is comfortable and a good choice of snacks and meals, all well presented and extremely edible.
