“ok coffee but poor atmosphere and disinterested staff”
Reviewed 30 October 2013

ok quality food, but expensive and staff seem totally disinterested. Seating area is rather characterless too.

“Not for me”
Reviewed 5 September 2013

Having recently moved to Crewkerne I gave this place a couple of chances but won't be returning. Very average food, below average service and, massively overpriced.
The previously mentioned "hidden charges" are just bang out of order in the way they're applied and the "free wifi" wasn't working.
Not a good experience and one which I have no intention of repeating.
My advice is steer clear.

“Expensive”
Reviewed 10 August 2013

Grossly overpriced for what you get. Buy and pay for at the counter - no waitress service. Food average - bread is thick bloomer type - with hard crusts - great if you have all your teeth, if not, avoid like the plague. more expensive than a local restaurant where we had a meal with a wine and a tonic water, and we only had a toasted sandwich in Number 7 with 2 coffees. Definitely would not recommend.

“Disappointing all round”
Reviewed 6 August 2013

We have just visited No. 7 for the third, and probably last, time.

The decor and fixtures/fittings give a good impression and at first glance, things look good. Having said that, a large bin lorry was parked right outside for the duration of our visit which definitely didn't help what view there is.

We now know that there's no waitress service and that you have to order and wait at the counter. We also know that they add an extra 20p for paying with either a Credit OR a Debit card for totals under £10 - but you only find that out "after the event": not acceptable.

The coffee (extra shot) was quite tasty but apparently the milkshake (banana) and apple juice were just average. The service was quite poor with two of the only three simple items having to be repeated; and of course the hidden charge most certainly did not help.

I do feel this place could be so much better but having given it three gos, I think that's enough.
