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.

Something for everyone, with the most amazing selection of cheeses. Pleasant for coffee and brownie, but also looked very interesting bistro food. Plenty of seating with quiet areas. Counter service takes a while if someone is buying a cheese selection !! Individually cut whilst you wait, will be buying a selection on next visit.

I visited Turnballs recently for the first time and I can say I was pleasantly surprised. My hot chocolate was delicious and the pizza to die for! The staff were very approachable and the waitress that served me was very helpful! Would highly recommend!

I often go into Turnbulls to drink tea and read my book, it's always got a lovely atmosphere and the cheesey chips are to die for! I enjoy it there very much and the waitresses are always lovely.

Service was very quick and efficient and the atmosphere was great. Bustling and warm, I will definitely return with my friends. We particularly enjoyed the pizzas, highly recommend!

My husband and I popped into Turnbulls for a quick lunch, we were greeted by a lovely waitress who tended to our table throughout our visit. The restaurant was busy but we were shown to a table straight away with our drinks delivered soon after! Our soup ploughman's and welsh rarebit with a poached egg were both delicious and despite...

If you want a deli and café that serves really good food with quality ingredients then Turnbull's is your place. As well as a menu of simple dishes done well (not trying to be too clever like so many places) the shelves are stacked with delicious culinary treats to take home. Helpful and charming staff contribute to a relaxed atmosphere... More

This morning I decided to treat my husband to some breakfast while we were in Shaftesbury and chose Turnbulls as the menu looked nice. I ordered coffee and chose croque monsieur as we love it having had it in hotels and in France. We were served a plate of undercooked toast with a little ham hock and a sea of... More
