We are a small friendly cafe and tea room set in a well known family-run garden centre. We are situated on the main A38 between Wellington and Taunton and just 5 minutes from Junction 26 of the M5. We have a wide and varied menu and chefs daily specials. We are known for our 'All-day breakast', lunches and cream-teas. During the Summer you can enjoy the fresh air and somerset-made ice-cream in our lovely tea garden which has great views of the Blackdown Hills.
