Cream tea for three

There is something very British about cream teas server outside on a hot sunny day by very well spoken friendly .staff. This you find here. You can sit inside or outside and watch the day go by. Strongly recommended.

I visited with friends and my 4 year old daughter on Saturday 27th June. It was fairly busy when we arrived but we were shown to a table. Service was very slow - we ordered food and drinks and the drinks took a long time to arrive. I ordered a toasted tea cake for my daughter's lunch as there wasn't... More

I discovered Mr Miles a month or so ago and have been won over by extremely polite staff, an extensive selection of coffees and a relaxed, friendly atmosphere. Most recently, I visited to try the coffee of the week (a smooth Nicaraguan number!) and to try a sweet treat from the new menu... I went for the summer pavlova. Bliss!... More

My friends and I enjoyed a tasty breakfast here. The scrambled eggs on the crusty bloomer were very tasty and had well cooked, good quality eggs. My friend had hers with salmon which was a generous portion. The only down side was we could have eaten more but then maybe that is just us being piggies! My other friend had... More

My daughter and I have been regular visitors to Mr Miles but alas no more. We ordered a Banana Split Sundae to share and when it arrived my daughter and I noticed after digging in that it was lacking the main ingredient of bananas. This was pointed out to the waiter when asked if everything was ok and we were... More

Dear GrimsOnerNerd, I have responded direct to you but just wanted to acknowledge the fact that despite staff training we have managed to mess up what should have been very simple. How on earth one of my staff could miss out the banana from a banana split is remarkable!!! What is worse is that it was brought to my attention... More

A rare find, a lovely gift shop combined with a light and airy teashop vibe - Impressed to see not only vegetarian and vegan options, but vegan cakes on offer. Also nice to see an array of ages amongst the staff, with the professional and upmarket feel of the establishment you wouldn't usually expect to see quite young staff, so... More

A group of 28 booked a three course dinner in Mr. Miles. We had been offered a pre-booked choice out of three for starters, main and pudding - difficult to choose as they all sounded delicious. We were greeted upstairs with a glass of wine and the large main room had been laid out with a three-sided table. The room... More

We paid our first visit to Miles tearooms in Taunton today and based on the experience we had it will also be our last! Having been shown rather abruptly to our table we all ordered the high tea.
