Would definitely recommend these tea rooms, good selection on the menu, lovely outside space for a sunny afternoon lunch or tea, friendly staff, good value for money.

It was sunnier than forecast, I think, yesterday – Minehead can tend to do it's own thing weather-wise! So glad you could enjoy our sunny tea garden yesterday, and thank you for taking the time to review us.

Stopped for a cup of tea in Minehead and found this lovely tearoom. Full of character with a sunny enclosed garden and friendly staff. Shortbread and carrot cake was delicious. Homemade. Dogs made to feel very welcome. We even loved the toilet! Do visit!

Description
The Apple Tree Tearooms is to be found half way up the tree-lined avenue in Minehead. Serving a healthy cooked breakfast, soups, jacket potatoes, toasties, sandwiches and baguettes and salads and Ploughmans. Luscious home-made cream teas, cakes, cookies and slices make this venue a mecca for visitors and locals alike. Boasting a colourful interior and equally delightful al fresco tea garden, this café is ideally suited to families with young children, as children's books, toys and treasure hunts are provided. There is good disabled access and facilities. Oh, and dogs are also most welcome -they are offered dog blankets, treats and water bowls (as long as they are owners are well-behaved).
