Shared with BK, plenty of room to sit in or outside. Just off A303 to Chard. Idea for children. Good wholesome food

Weak, over-priced coffee, toilets like public lavatories were in the old days. Won't be using again!

I've been twice in the last couple of weeks after not going there for years, I had the Early Starter and I thought it was very good, service was excellent and very quick, the only down side was it was a tad expensive, will definitely be back again.

Over priced, I had a much superior breakfast in Weathspoon for 65% less. So Chard is a better option for travellers to the west.

Been years since I have been in a little chef so it was a little like going back in time except for the prices. My view of this area is use the Burger King if you want more than just a seat. I opted for the soup that came in two option both in the smallest bowl ever and cold... More
