Visited here with two children aged 6 and 4 after we'd been walking round the Dunster Estate. We sat in the courtyard as it was a lovely day and a waiter came to our table.

We found the tea room by chance What a find? We had lunch there twice. Their home made soup and the spiced apple tea were delicious. I would love to visit again in the spring or summer to sit in the beautiful garden. A real gem.

The setting is lovely and the food selection excellent. We especially recommend the ginger scones with honey and clotted cream and the Devonshire blue cheese on toast.
