This historic chapel makes a fantastic setting for The Meeting House - Ilminster's Arts Centre. It offers more than the varied programme of musical concerts and arts events and tuition. There is usually an art exhibition in the refreshment hall, while the main hall also...More

This converted church is a great place to visit to see some unique art and crafts. They have a full programme of events throughout the year which are varied. Whilst there we had a coffee in their cafe. A very pleasant experience all round.

Welcoming and friendly staff. Flashy gift shop with lots of bits and pieces worth the value. Excellent offer on food and drink, opted to have a quiet and relaxing lunch on budget! Couldn't recommend more, worth a visit!

Been living in ilminster for two years and have always enjoyed popping in here for a coffee and cake from a wide range of homemade selection available. Friendly faces, happy atmosphere and always an exhibition of art and crafts to admire while you're there.

Pleasant little cafe, good food, able to adapt small details on menu. Relaxing surroundings. Access may be difficult if you have restricted mobility but they have done their best, in an old building, with grab handles to help you up the stairs. I would return.

Lovely venue with the added interest of regular art and craft exhibitions. Lots of workshops and groups, performance (jazz mainly) going on throughout the year and local crafts on sale in the shop. Good coffee, cake and cheese scones in the cafe.
