Great pie!

We visited late morning and missed breakfast so had an early lunch. The ambience was lovely, staff very polite and everything was clean and well presented. I had a nice gluten free fish and chips (a rare find) and my boyfriend had homemade steak and kidney pie. The pie was so good that we went back... read more

We had a very mixed experience at Edelweiss, We walked in after the Gorge walk on a Sunday around midday, and sat down for a cup of tea. After recomposing ourselves with tea we then asked for a menu as we decided to eat there too. The Menu looked fantastic and the food we had see coming out to other... More

I am so sorry that you didn’t receive what you asked for, it frustrates me to hear this. Circumstances beyond our control meant that our front of house team included one new member of staff and one temporary employee, on the day you came in. I perceive they unfortunately didn’t select the correct item on our electronic order tablets, and... More

Set by the river, this restaurant is very really lovely inside. The food is lovely and the service is great. Definitely worth a visit.

What an awesome little treasure. We had a beautiful English cream tea with scones and clotted cream, which was scrummy. I would heartily recommend this place.

On arrival in Cheddar it was raining so we wanted to find somewhere to warm up. We popped into this little cafe and were pleasantly surprised. Not only was it warm but the decor was inviting and cozy. Apparently having been established for over 50 years (I believe this to be correct) it's not hard to see why. The cafe... More

Edelweiss in cheddar is in a lovely spot at the bottom of cheddar gorge - beautifully presented with old photos of cheddar and pretty bunting and decoration. We enjoyed a delicious meal - kids very happy with scampi and chips/ sausage and chips. Adults enjoyed a lovely large fresh salad and faggots and chips - with extra gravy! Friendly and... More

We stopped in Cheddar for a quick lunch and were very fortunate to find Edelweiss at the bottom of the town. We chose paninis, one of our favourites. They were served with some salad and home made colslaw, which was delicious. The venue was very prettily decorated with bunting, hearts and pictures, which made the eating experience very relaxed. The... More
