Bit grotty inside and could do with a makeover ! However as the weather was good we sat outside which was fine. Coffee was very good and not expensive. The staff was very pleasant and friendly.

First time in Somerton, passing through the ancient county capital en route to the Quantock hills. Buttercross tea room is a lovely, unpretentious place with good, honest fresh local food and friendly service. I thought I'd try something appropriate for Somerset, so went for the...More

This is a good, traditional tea room, serving traditional tea room type of things. Tables inside, plus additional tables out in the market square add to the atmosphere. Well worth a try if you need a cup of tea and a bun when you're in...More
