Had lunch here on a dull chilly day and thought soup would be ideal. Unfortunately no vegetarian soup although there are other veggie options on the menu. My husband had a ploughmans which was big enough to share. The cafe is an old school room. Pleasant staff.

Ordered soup which was enormous and piping hot with plenty of crusty bread. The waiter (or may be the owner) was very friendly and cheerful. Lovely garden outside for the summer. Nice atmosphere.

These tea rooms are a delight. Visited on New Years Day and had delicious soup, sandwiches, cream tea and cake all freshly made. Sandwiches with thick freshly sliced bread with butter and thick slices of mature cheese were a real blast from the past how my Grandpa used to make them for me as a child. Ham ones were equally...

This is a great little cafe,even more so in the summer months when you can sit out in the lovely garden next to the Castle grounds or in the courtyard.The food and drinks are excellent.Expect. Big plateful with your sandwich or pasty as you get lots of salad and coleslaw. Greatly recommended!

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.
