Nearest town

Wellington (4 ¼ miles)

Close to the Blackdown Hills, Wellington is a small Somerset market town where good food is a bit of an obsession. Supermarkets seem to have lost the battle here and instead local produce, sold in traditional outlets like the fishmonger’s and butcher’s, is to be found everywhere. The monthly farmer’s market is heaven for foodies; fantastic local cheeses, meat from nearby farms and real cider give you a great taste of Somerset. You can diet when you get home…

Very impressive

As my partner is a pilot it was inevitable we would need to visit the airfield.... usually these places are quite basic and food is obligatory greasy spoon type fare....but not here in Dunkeswell! Very impressed and very helpful staff. Food great and very reasonably priced too and dogs are welcome. The location of the outdoor seating also means you get an excellent view of aircraft both landing, taking off and parking up....

Fantastic tea room and garden

My wife Mary and I visited the tea rooms during a walk over the Quantock Hills. The setting was superb and the staff very friendly and helpful. Home made scones with clotted cream and jam were scrumptious, and the tea was very welcome by 2 thirsty walkers. I would recommend this tea room to everyone.

Lovely old fashioned theatre/cinema. Great value for money compared to the modern Odeon in Taunton.
