Our deli serves the best cheese for miles, where we showcase the pick of local classics such as Montgomery and Dorset Blue Vinny, plus the finest examples of the European Greats. We stock cheeses so good, so extraordinary and perfectly matured, you'll taste the difference in every mouthful. Turnbulls Bistro serves seasonal home made lunches with many dishes under £10, made here by us with carefully sourced local ingredients. And our coffee, well, it's Great Taste Award winning, and our hot chocolate special is renowned in playgrounds from Bath to the Jurassic Coast.

Try the gogonzola.

This is a deli with a 'bistro' - we had great sandwiches, baguettes (ah! the bacon), flan, chips - all very very good. Loved it. Good coffee and a nice bottle of Bristol Gold beer (local cider also available). Only downside was the lack of training of the young staff who didn't really know the... read more

The food here is lovely, there's no doubt to how well it's cooked, it is on the pricy side but matches the standard of the food. However whilst having lunch with my sister, we ordered a pot of tea for 2. There wasn't enough for 2 cups each, so I asked if the pot could be filled and we just... More

Previous reviews say that staff were slow but a waitress came to take our order very quickly.We both ordered ''Mexican march hot chocolates'' and eggs benedict (one ham and one... More

Had lunch here, and we're very pleased with the deli sharing platter. Then just had to spend time buying some delicious local cheeses, a good stop.

New refurb gives a lovely feeling of space and light. Love the colours and a great new spot for the sofa in the conservatory. Ploughmans board is still a favourite - great choice of best bits from the deli and light enough to still leave room for a naughty slice of cake! Smily ,welcomimg staff make it a pleasure to...

Have been a regular for many years,mainly because of good coffee and great waitresses.Took a friend today for the first time for breakfast.The proceeding order of toast/marmalade arrived,along with the coffee.8 slices of completely untoasted toast,together with an empty jar of marmalade were served.Apologising,as we Brits do,pointed out that the toast was un-toasted and,no marmalade left in the jar!.So,the toast...
