Some of the dishes were tasty but we wouldn't return or recommend The Cafe.

Cold dining room, no sign of any management or chef only 2 really sweet young girls who did their best. We left a generous tip(for them!) but management then asked us for £1 as we requested an extra slice of bread. This was because I had to request gluten free bread so our basket of selected bread was removed and 2 small slices of GF and 2 half slices for my husband were served instead. Of course I paid but it is not what we expect from a good restaurant! The fish dish was spoilt for our taste as it was swimming in oil. We certainly wouldn't pay the full price. There are some really good restaurants in Somerset and North Devon which we enjoy and we are happy to pay for quality food. We very rarely complain, but you did ask, I hope this has been helpful.

The food was excellent and the service friendly and unstuffy.

There were very few people there despite this being superb cordon bleu food.... Easily the best in the area. We wondered whether their external appearance ( eg a bit stark, no flowers etc) and their publicity board ('' take away, light lunches and snacks'') really did justice to what they had on offer.

Nice meal in pleasant surroundings with attentive staff. Good sized portions for a taster menu.
