Did not realise this delightful restaurant was there although we eat at times in the local restaurant in the evenings. Had been to the hospital and we were in need of a quick snack and hot drinks. We sat in the very smart "Garden Room" which was spotless and comfortable with some pretty pictures round the walls. Nearly bought "Scruffy"... More

Very well presented cafe and deli in the centre of South Petherton, with an excellent selection of cakes and pastries. We had Guinness cake and canoli (no-one there knew the Italian name for what were presented as "lobsters' tails"). Very pleasant surroundings, with a wealth of tempting chocolate products and Italian food on sale together with a good selection of... More

Hi Peter Thank you for our kind words - and I'm glad that you enjoyed your sweet treats. We've always labelled them as "lobster tails" as many of our customers have great difficulty in getting their tongue around the correct Italian name of "sfogliatelle". We hope that you'll be back to try all of the flavours - hazelnut, lemon, chocolate,... More

I'm sure they pump out some sort of mind controlling drug that takes over control when you pop in for one specific item but end up coming away with half a dozen items that you can't live without!! I love this place. The cheese counter is incredible and always something new to try. There is also a good range of... More

We visit here quite often, the deli foods are always really nice (a great selection of cheeses in particular) and the coffee shop in particular is really nice, the hot chocolates are perhaps the best I've ever had, and when they add a syrup you can actually taste it.

Cycled by to get a decent cheeseboard for our cider making the next day. These people have about 40 really good cheeses on offer, a lot of them local artisan numbers like White Nancy and Rachel. Also Montgomery Cheddar, Ticklemore, Sharrpham Rustic and lots more, such as Cropwell Bishop stilton. While choosing them I had a black coffee, which was... More

My family and I have been to Provender a few times since we moved to Somerset from London and it's my favourite deli in this part of the world. I love the unusual selection of deli items and their choice of cakes is great too. I'm a particular fan of their 'lobster tails'. The only downside is I'm always so... More
