Restaurant details
Dining options: Breakfast
Description: Unique Cafe / Restaurant located on an organic farm in beautiful rural Somerset. We are just a 30 second drive off the the A303 perfect for a half way stop on your journey between London & Cornwall. All our produce is the highest standards of quality, welfare and sustainability. We proudly support other local producers including and excellent range of local Beers, Ciders & Soft Drinks. All served either in our repurposed late 19th century Great Eastern Railway Coach 1085, or with breathtaking views from the top deck of our newest addition an 1980 Daimler Double Decker Bus. The Garden is also a great place for the kids to let off some steam.

Adjacent to a far shop selling a wide range of local products, this cafe offers excellent coffee and good vegetarian meals at reasonable prices. The staff are very friendly . There are panoramic views over rolling Somerset countryside.

“Right on track!”
Reviewed June 1, 2013

Although (quite literally), this carriage is right off the rails! It has never failed to excite my taste buds in a unique dining receptacle overlooking the glorious Somerset countryside. Mostly vegetarian, but now with a hint of meat on a short menu. I have always had super salads and scrumptious soups, cakes to die for and dying for a drink; always the best tea and coffee and fortuitously they never ask to see my ticket!
