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!

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

We popped into Feast on Saturday after a pleasant hour spent pottering in Ilminster. The menu, although limited, was full of very original and tasty vegetarian dishes, nearly all served with a wonderful selection of fresh salads. The food arrived in good time and was excellent. We will hopefully be able to return in the near future.

Always tasty, hearty vegetarian choices. Friendly people. Interesting interior with lots of rooms to sit in. Great coffee too. Sit outside on the private patio if its sunny.

I always love go to Feast and I am a meat eater! I have been here with large groups, for lunch and evening meals (on a Friday). The menu changes and the coffee and cake are wow! The building is a series of interesting rooms. Lots of other good shops in Ilminster
