Description: Pitcher & Piano Taunton has a really vintage look and feel to match the classic West Country heritage of the building. Relax in one of our Chesterfields with an Illy coffee or enjoy lunch away from the office with a £6 dish from the Munch for Less menu - and you really won't want to leave. Fridays & Saturdays are all about having a great night out with delicious cocktails, fine wines and premium draught lagers, bottled beers, ciders and ales. At the weekends you have to try our tasty breakfast dishes, with delicious roasts on a Sunday to cure the weekend blues.

“Excellent service!”
Reviewed 28 March 2014

First time here and very pleasantly surprised. It's a lovely building (it was once the library), full of character with squidgy sofas, vaulted ceilings and wooden floors (so not good acoustically but aesthetically very pleasing!) Lovely and warm last night (apart from the first floor toilets which were a bit nippy), and a relaxed atmosphere.

Menus are imaginative, but ciabattas, burgers and snacks rather than three run-of-the-mill courses. We had roasted veg with halloumi in a ciabatta (£6.95), with fries and salad to share - all delicious and delivered to us quickly with a smile. In fact, the service here was outstanding; both Alice and Teri had the right level of friendliness and professionalism - they knew when to chat, and they knew when to leave us (two old friends catching up). Drinks were served at the table, and help offered when choosing puddings. My friend's apple crumble was 'amazing' she said, but my bakewell could have done with a bit more fruity, jammy filling (£4.50). Very impressed - will be back again.

“Lovely time all round.”
Reviewed 21 March 2014

Last week we stumbled on the Pitcher and Piano after wandering around starving, not wanting to do the McDonalds or Weatherspoons thing again. We didn't know quite what to expect. The four of us ordered a couple of 'sharing' dishes and were pleasantly surprised by what arrived. Not only was the food lovely but the service at the bar was really friendly and our waitress (called Alice?) was the perfect waitress.. It was quite busy when we arrived and having looked at the menu we were not sure if we'd be able to order suitable food for one of our party as they had to have a gluten free diet. Alice rocked up to take our order and Sam explained about the Gluten free thing.........Off Alice shot to have a word with the kitchen...Back two mins later. ..All sorted. Thank you. We'll be back!

“A lovely lunch with my daughter”
Reviewed 17 March 2014

My daughter comes here a lot but this was my first time. From the moment we walked in to the impressive bar area it was a most enjoyable experience. Our waitress Alice was friendly and attentive. Although we weren't here for a huge meal, just a lunchtime snack, we were just made to feel that we were important and valued customers. I would definitely come here again every Friday and Saturday lunchtime when in town. I think it is one of the best places to eat lunch in Taunton. Well done Pitcher and Piano, and especially well done Alice. You are a perfect model for a beautiful, friendly waitress.
