I recently visited Dunster and had planned to go to Tessa's tea rooms but on arrival it was closed. We found this tea room and was very very pleased! We ordered afternoon tea for two, there was three of us and it was plenty! The bread was very fresh and a wide range of sandwiches. We had chocolate and lemon... More

I visit many times, every time I holiday in this area, lovely cakes and bakes, free WiFi, gorgeous outdoor seating, a libel sheltered spot of tranquillity sitting on the High Street of this fabulous medieval village. Gate leads to the car park of the castle...it's fabulous and I love it!! Highly recommend

We have been to the tearooms several times recently and found it to be a good experience each time. Sandwiches and homemade pies (both delicious) on one visit and a cream tea on the next visit. The cream tea we enjoyed with visitors to the UK and our table looked very impressive with two 3 tier stands full of sandwiches,... More

Tucked in off the main street, this tea room has an small inside area but mainly is a courtyard and a garden, both are very nice. As with all tea rooms, food is a bit more expensive than you'd like but actually here it is worth it as it is generally good portions and filling. The ginger scones get the... More

We have been here a couple of times in the past, and have always quite enjoyed it. On this occasion, however, it was a real let-down. As others have said, it is in a quaint location in a courtyard just off the main street in Dunster. There are tables in the courtyard, in a small building and in a tucked... More

We just popped in for a cuppa and a slice of cake and we really enjoyed it. The homemade cake were very tasty and the staff were very plesent. Weather was great so we sat outside, the garden was very pretty.

We ate lunch here today, and were hugely disappointed. A slice of cheese on toast accompanied by 2 leaves of lettuce was £6.15, and the ploughmans lunch was a bit of lettuce, a crust of bread (literally) and half an uncored apple. We felt well and truly ripped off, and I feel truly ashamed that foreign tourists eat in places... More

This is a quaint little tea room, hidden away off Dunster high street. It is nice that there is an option to eat outside or inside - we chose inside. We were a party of 7, so sat on 2 tables across from each other. This wasn't a problem - except when 1 person from each table ordered tea and... More

Found this establishment whilst wandering down Dunster's High Street, and being a sunny day decided to sit in their rear garden. Staff were very pleasant and friendly and their service was prompt and courteous. There was plenty to choose from on their menu and we decided to try their pasties followed by apple pie and cream. It was the best... More
