This is a quaint, slightly expensive cafe. The outside area was packed on the day of our visit but there was a table for us inside. You always sense that when you arrive at a destination which is popular with tourists you will have ancillary shops feeding off it and create tourist traps. At least Derrick's Tea Rooms have a...

Had breakfast here on saturday, was quiet in café but waitress welcomed us and advised us of menu options. Breakfast was very well cooked and a good sized portion. Tea and coffee was hot and good quality. Would recommend for service, friendliness and good decent food

I previously wrote a review that for some reason has been removed!! So I write again as I think people deserve to know how bad this place is. I have been visiting this place for a long time whenever I am in the Cheddar area, I hadn't visited in a while (so I honestly don't know if it was always... More

Lovely place to eat in Cheddar. Friendly staff, nice selection of afternoon teas and children's menu. We also got 15% off with our National Trust card which was an added bonus!

If you are in cheddar and want tea/coffee/breakfast/lunch, then Derricks is a must! We had breakfast here twice on our short visit to Cheddar and enjoyed it very much. Well looked after and friendly staff, plus the best scrambled eggs i've ever had. The little shop adjoining the tea room has some lovely gifts too.

My boyfriend and I stopped by for an afternoon tea on a sunny October afternoon. The tea room was traditionally decorated with music nicely accompanying the meal. Service was very quick and the cakes and scones were delicious. The place and staff were unpretentious and we felt very relaxed, which is not always the case in tea rooms! We only... More

Riding Harley's into Cheddar Gorge for the sole reason of having afternoon tea. Seemed that from reviews seen on Tripadvisor, the only place we should stop was Derricks..... WERE NOT DISAPPOINTED!!!! Greeted with a lovely smile at the front door while my 2 fellow riders were finishing their 'smoke' outside. It was suggested that we could try the decked area... More

We decided to stop in Cheddar on our way back from holiday to get away from the usual service station food! As we were driving through towards the car parks this place caught my eye and we decided we'd stop there for lunch. Our main aim was to sample some Cheddar cheese! We ordered a quiche, a ploughmans platter and... More
