Tucked away within the National Trust’s Holnicote Estate, a mix of moorland, woods and coastline is a superb cafe, popular amongst walkers and cyclists alike, just a short cycle from pretty Porlock, Minehead and Dunster Castle.
Cakes on the counter range from a fruit, coffee & walnut, Victoria sponge, lemon drizzle, carrot (pictured) or double chocolate, with tray-bakes including a yogurt flapjack, millionaire shortbread and an extremely tasty cherry Bakewell slice (pictured)! There’s also a reasonably priced and popular cream tea available too at £5.95.
For those looking for something savoury there’s a great selection of jacket potatoes, sandwiches and toasties with varying fillings too. The ‘Horner Ploughman’s’ although large is our recommendation and comes complete with Somerset cheddar, honey glazed ham, thick crusty bread plus a range of salad items and local chutney.
Out in their sheltered garden is plenty of seating for cycling groups of all sizes, complete with racking for your bikes. Inside too there’s a good number of tables and at weekends you can be sure to find great company from like-minded cyclists exploring the area on two wheels.
