The fact that my husband and I popped in for coffee then decided to have lunch and left over two hours later speaks for itself. Sophie and Pat are delightful and On the Brook is a little gem. Go for the short walk through the wood before returning to the cafe/restaurant for coffee and cake, lunch or afternoon tea. It’s not a slick, impersonal operation but very much their home with Sophie spending a lot of time in the kitchen and front of house and Pat being kept busy producing wonderful fruit and veg which can be on your plate hours after being picked. The old farm is having a real facelift and the accommodation to let is of high quality, I particularly like the latest small barn conversion which is still ‘work in progress’ but has a charming mezzanine sleeping area. Bruton has several good places to eat but On the Brook is unique, sitting in a charming little valley, beside a rippling brook and with a superb view. Give it a try.

Ate here on a beautiful sunny day for lunch. Managed to sit on the terrace overlooking the brook. Sheep and cows roaming around in the fields nearby! Good selection of drinks and a nice lunch menu for a light bite. Food cooked to order so a slight wait but you don’t mind for good, locally sourced produce. Will definitely return.

Overpriced and lacking in customer service.
The setting is delightful but the attitude of the owners lets the place down.

This is a great place for a quiet drink and amazing homemade ice-cream! It is so laid back and friendly, dogs are welcome and there are wonderful walks nearby. An absolute gem.

The cafe has a beautiful setting overlooking the hills and is an easy walk from Bruton. The food is delicious and is locally sourced, the style of the cafe is small plates, which makes a good lunch option as you can select a variety of dishes. The breakfast is also good, the best dish being the galettes!
