Dunster is fairly local to me so I'm a fairly regular visitor, however it is the first time I've been to Locks Victorian Tea Rooms. The town is usually very busy with tourists and weekend visitors but today, maybe because it was Fathers day, was very quiet and peaceful. That peaceful atmosphere was certainly present in the part-cobbled courtyard that you reach after walking through a passageway between two shops. Seating was comfortable, not too close to your neighbour with very attentive and cheery staff and equally cheery Sparrows. Various flavoured Teas and Coffees were available and we chose Peppermint tea with 2 Cream Teas and two Sandwiches. The sandwiches were superb, not the flaccid mass produced supermarket stuff but glorious thick slices of what seemed to be home baked bread which was delicious, accompanied by Coleslaw, Salad and home made Chutney. I had Tuna Mayonnaise and it was stuffed full, no thin scrapings here! The accompanying Cheddar sandwich was on Granary and equally impressive! The Cream Teas came with a choice of Scones including Cherry which was quickly demolished.
A couple next to us opted for a triple decker cream tea and ended up with 'carry out' boxes as they couldn't finish it all. Very reasonably priced for a 'tourist' town and recommended, particularly on a nice sunny day.
