Really looked forward to visiting this place because of the other good reviews. Although this place is very pleasant that serves nice tea, I was very disappointed in the food. My wife and I ordered the cream tea with the "homemade" scones.  The scones that derricks serve are cheap and there is no way they are they are homemade as... More

Popped in here during our visit to Cheddar, to get away from the rain. We opted for sandwiches and cream teas. The chocolate cream tea was absolutely amazing!! For such a lovely little tearoom in a beautiful setting, the prices are very competitive, would definitely return here if we were in the area again.

Popped in here for a cream tea whilst visiting Cheddar. Tea room sits at the top of the village just before you reach the gorge. We sat outside at the back of the building and it was very tranquil. We opted for a £7.95 deal which got us a sandwich and a cream tea , which was top class. Service... More

Came here today after visiting the caves. Very friendly staff who couldn't have been more attentive. Outside seating in the pretty garden. We had the special deal of sandwich and cream tea which came with well filled sandwiches and the fluffiest scones I have had for a while. Just need to sort out the (not working) light in the toilets!

Called in for a snack when we arrived in Cheddar. Friendly service, clean and best of all a brilliant pot of tea.. So we thought "Let's see what they offer for lunch" I had the 3 cheese ploughmans which was lovely and my husband had a jacket pot with chilli (not very spicy) Both meals presented well and very good...

As it was a gorgeous day we sat outside which was bliss as the scenery is lovely. Garden full of flowers and rock formations awesome. Took a cream tea away with us which... More

We visited Derrick's for lunch after spotting a flyer in the National Trust shop saying that National Trust members get a 15% discount there (you have to show your membership card to get the discount). We got there about 12pm and it was pretty quiet but got considerably busier not long after. Table space seems plenty though as there are... More

We have visted Derrick's tea rooms many times over the last 10 years and it just keeps getting better and better as the food is the best in Somerset well presented and freshly cooked and prepared to the highest standard. The tea room is spotlessly clean the staff are helpful and friendly and they even allow dogs which is very... More
