A great little tea room tucked away behind Jacobs of Dunster. Cakes are all freshly made and only display for you to choose. I went for triple (yes triple) layer Victoria sponge which was very good. My partner went for the cream tea. Although I struggled to finish mine as they are not mean with the portions. Total came to... More

Dunster is quiet in November with many Tea Rooms closed but the Locks Tea Rooms courtyard provided a nice enclosed outdoor space for a lunch ( dogs not allowed inside) The fare is simple and reasonably well presented. Good value for money.

Yet again we were delighted by the first class service and the food at Locks. Two had soup and a generous chunk of delicious granary bread and two had local ham sandwiches (on granary) with a salad garnish. The sandwiches are a very generous size with 'real' ham and the 'garnish' is actually a very substantial serving with coleslaw, lettuce,... More

Stumbled across this courtyard cafe en route to the castle. Friendly staff and excellent cream teas in a secluded courtyard enabled us to enjoy the last of the autumn sun. Garden area was pleasant too. A good place for a pit stop.

We stopped off here in Dunster for afternoon tea. My partner and I had the Victorian Afternoon tea. This included a large pot of tea, sandwiches, scones with clotted cream and jam and homemade cake. It was really scrummy and a delight. Really couldn't fault it. We definitely go again

I went here with my partner and we had a Victorian afternoon tea.......it was delicious. The sandwiches were huge, with a choice of fillings. We had some ham and some Brie. We then had fruit scones, with jam and cream and a huge slice of cake each. I couldn't manage all of mine so the staff kindly boxed it up... More

Mushrooms abound in this wholesome delicious soup. Enormous, filling bowls. Sandwiches and hot food are equally well proportioned. Good value too.
