I tend to pop into the garden centre when in Minehead, leaving aside the food the plants are always top notch and the staff have so much knowledge!
If I need a bit to eat it's always a pleasure to eat here - not too pricey unlike the major chain garden centres and always tasty and home cooked.

The garden centre is a lovely place to browse. The restaurant is very good. Yes you order your food at the desk, but it is hardly self service. White bread only! I think not. It is very hard to please some people sometimes. The staff will bring your meal to you if you need help. There is an outside decking area as well. The staff are very pleasant and helpful, and yes, sometimes they are a bit slow. So what - why are we in a rush? The food is good, reasonably priced. We will return again.
If you want rubbish food just go to the sea front ! Please do not give poor reviews to a local company with local staff. They really do their best

Went here which is a self service cafe with a friend for lunch. Ended up with just a coffee as they only serve white bread so great disappointment for us as the food looked and smelled good.

Visiting Minehead recently I was taken here by a local resident for lunch. Set inside the West Somerset Garden Centre, which I have to say is also first class, this small busy cafe is an absolute treasure. Home cooked cakes and very tasty lunches cooked to order. We sat outside on the decking area with occasional lovely smells coming from the surrounding plants. What was going to be a quick lunch turned into 2 hours of pure delight.

Tucked out of the way from the town, this cafe is set in the Garden Centre and is always very busy. Delicious coffee and cakes and piping hot, tastey lunches.
There is an outside deck surrounded by mature plants where you can sit in good weather. The location being where it is makes it a nice quiet spot away from the hustle and bustle of town.
There is quite a variety on the menu and it changes regularly. Often full with the locals here morning and lunchtimes. Always a good sign.
