Visited for a quick lunch while visiting Cheddar gorge. Very nice friendly staff and good selection of lunch items. Hot chocolate was delightful and appreciated on a cold day! Dog friendly too so that was a bonus. Would visit again if in the area.

Derrick's has a real vintage, shabby chic feel about it. They offer a wide selection of teas which are served in vintage china!.

Fantastic selection of teas. Loose leaf with strainers and proper china tea cups. Great service. Subtle but lively period music. Only small drawback... plates for scones were really small and I made a mess everywhere. We highly recommend this tea room.

We walked past a Costa Cafe and my wife asked if I wanted to go in there but i said I wanted something more homely and "English"! We called in to... More
