We often call in here for our lunch when in town. Sometimes only for a snack and a cuppa, and other times for a lunch. Service is always very good and the food excellent. Surroundings also are very much in character. We shall call often, and have recommended to friends who do likewise.

While passing through Taunton we happened to find this lovely tea room. The breakfast was really good as was the coffee. The staff were friendly and efficient. The décor is reminiscent of a traditional English tea room. We will definitely go back when we pass through again.

We were unable to book a table in our preferred room as bookings are not taken and declined the table near the loo and till. Downstairs was less elegant but ok. The sandwiches were dry and there was no choice of cakes. The ones on display looked far more tempting than our selection. I had been looking forward to this... More
