The exterior has been nicely redecorated. The interior has been refreshed and expanded and now has about 55 covers and still has the excellent craft / gift / gin shop (note that many of the gins are on tasting - if they aren't too busy). The rather chilly outside loo has now been bought inside, with mega stylish decor. Still a similar interesting menu with excellent quiches, cheese scone / savoury combos, fabulous smoked mackerel pate and the like; their cakes are legendary ... all very reasonably priced. Wonderful drinks menu especially the alcohol - cheap G&Ts, bottles of great English sparkling for the off licence price. The decor, cruets, mismatched crockery are quirkiness at the best. Cannot recommend highly enough

Had nice teas and coffees. Returned for lunch. Everyone enjoyed their light meals. The service was exceptional. Couldn't do enough for us. I wished I tried the cakes but the food was really good.

Wow. This place is great. Lovely staff and great food. A hidden gem. We had an afternoon tea which was just amazing. And our daughter enjoyed her chocolate brownie and crumpets. Definitely worth a visit here if you visit Dunster Castle.
