Food was very tasty with good portion sizes. Very good value for money. I'm a coeliac and the lady was very helpful in letting me know what was safe for me on the menu, including showing me ingredients on the products used. The peanut butter slice I had for dessert was particularly good. Would go there again!

Greeted with a warm and friendly smile and made to feel welcome, all staff attentive and the food was amazing. Delicious if you are a vegetarian or not (and I am not).Definitely a place to visit if you are in the area.

I hadn't even heard of this place until a week before I visited, and it was once of those chance happenings. One day it featured in my local newspaper, and my friend alerted it to me, the next day I found myself booked into a conference at the other side of town (bearing in mind I'd not been to Ilminster...

We had a joint 50th & 17th birthday lunch here and it was really excellent. Love the building, decor, staff, menu, food quality and value. Short menu of interesting and well made dishes in a relaxed, slightly quirky environment. We had no vegetarians in group but everyone really enjoyed their meals. Anyone who who can't appreciate this place should just... More

I am not a vegetarian but this is my third visit to this place and no visit has disappointed. The food is well presented and tastes delicious. The staff were friendly and helpful and the building though old, somehow just fit right.

Not been for a while and had forgotten how delicious the food is. Mmmmmm!! Totally veggie, 3 courses plus soft local drink (Somerset apple juice) and then coffee for just over £20 - excellent value. They are now open every Friday evening as well but suggest booking!

I went there today for lunch and it was a bit strange. The salad was completely coated in a very strong mustard dressing, so were the potatoes.also Balsamic vinegar.it really was a taste overload.I had to leave mine and I live on salad.the cafe is in an old house which was quaint but cold, the heating wasn't on and there...

Have wanted to try this place for ages but always seem to get the timings wrong for their opening times. Today got it right. Fantastic celeriac and apple soup with home made cheese scone. Best scone I've ever eaten. My friend had the soup with a vegetable scone, she said the same. I absolutely love to cook and it's my... More

This is lovely place with lovely staff and atmosphere. It is original and experimental and deserves success. But our latest visit was disappointing. My pan fried vegetables with poached egg on a bed of salad and lentils was a nice idea totally obliterated by a dominant, sharp and taste destroying dressing. The piling up of components looked impressive but reduced... More
