This is the second visit we have made here and it didn't fail to impress yet again. The food was really nice, and fresh. The service was prompt and friendly. I orded a ploughmans and it came within 10 minutes and it was the full works. The price is reasonable for the quality of the food, would definitely recommend to... More

Had lunch on a warm sunny day, sitting in a secluded courtyard. Our food comprised of ginger scone cream tea: blue cheese on toast and 2xblue cheese, leek and walnut pie with side salad and chutney. The pot of tea also came with an extra tea bag and pot of hot water, an appreciated addition. Decent sized portions and extremely... More

...yummy! A bit sweet and very sticky but it is a cream tea after all! The concept of ginger and honey is a good, and original one. Next time we have visitors from afar and it's a lovely sunny day, we'll be back.

Dunster is fairly local to me so I'm a fairly regular visitor, however it is the first time I've been to Locks Victorian Tea Rooms. The town is usually very busy with tourists and weekend visitors but today, maybe because it was Fathers day, was very quiet and peaceful. That peaceful atmosphere was certainly present in the part-cobbled courtyard that... More

Visited Dunster and spotted the umbrellas of the tea room from the national trust car park. The waitress was very attentive and took our order quickly. We chose afternoon tea for two so had a few decisions to make in terms of cakes and sandwiches! The outside was very busy and a few tables occupied inside. The drinks and food... More

This lovely little tea room is much more than that. You have to go through an 'arcade' between two shops and arrive in a cobbled courtyard with seating. There is then the tea room with windows overlooking the garden, a covered terrace with seating and a very pretty sheltered garden with back entrance access to the field and parking for... More

Such a lovely place, we found tranquility here in the courtyard amidst the madness of Dunster By Candlelight!

We've been here a couple of times now when visiting Dunster. Outside seating area is lovely if it's not raining! Inside is nice but a bit squashed. Food is lovely. Cakes are lovely too. Service is ok. Tables are left uncleared for quite a while which means you might have to sit down to a dirty table on arriving.

This place is very pricey for what you get. I tried to order a jacket potato but they ran out then I tried to order something else and they had ran out of that too. Eventually I managed to get a sandwich (which was very average)! The service was terrible and the waiter didn't seem to know what vegetarian meant.... More
