Excellent food: good choice of cakes, light lunches and a range of teas, either in the old mill house, or on the patio, or in the glorious garden at tables under the willows near a little stream (very shallow). Light teas, cream teas and posh...More

Fed up with poor quality/quantity food, or over-priced 'cheffy' nonsense? Cole tea rooms will restore your faith in humanity! The quiche was a massive, filling, and tasty slice, and the accompaniments were well thought out and delicious. the cakes looked equally inviting. The gardens are...More

The Tea Rooms will be closed for the winter from Monday, 9th November and will re-open on Wednesday, 3rd February but we are ending our season on a high as the Tea Rooms have recently won the Best Tea Rooms/Coffee Shop award from Somerset Life Magazine. We look forward to seeing you in February when our wonderful display of snowdrops will be in full flower.
