The Abbey Tea Rooms - Restaurant




The range of coffees include modern favourites such as lattes and cappuccinos which are delicious with a toasted teacake dripping in local butter or maybe a slice of homemade shortbread or carrot and walnut cake with cream cheese frosting.

The range of lunches includes a choice of homemade soups with chunks of granary bread, a selection of sandwiches plain or toasted, a variety of traditional ploughman's lunches with local pickled onions and homemade apple chutney; these regular favourites are supplemented by daily specials such as steak and Somerset ale casserole, chicken and ham pie, and cottage pie - all served with a selection of fresh vegetables and choice of potatoes.

There is also a roast lunch available most days and always on a Sunday when a reservation is recommended. Vegetarians are also catered for including a vegetarian roast on Sundays. To complete your meal why not sample one of the old fashioned puddings that are on offer every day such as blackberry and apple crumble, sticky ginger sponge, rice pudding or treacle tart, or maybe some delicious locally made ice cream in a variety of flavours.

The Abbey Tea Rooms is licensed so you can enjoy a drink with your meal - locally produced wines, ale and cider are available together with a large selection of soft drinks including local apple juice and mineral water.
