Just wanted a snack before going back to the bus, but as my friend needed something savoury - even just a sandwich we were told they were only serving sweet things, so we left. Don't bother - find somewhere else.

Called in for morning coffee and tea cake whilst on holiday before exploring Wells. Very quiet when we called. Ordered coffee and tried to make conversation saying what a lovely cafe it looked and no real response. Ordered tea cakes with butter. Waited longer than expected and when they arrived minimal butter on top (halved buttered). No smile from waitress... More

I went into Crofters at 11.15 one cold morning and was informed I was too early for soup as they were still doing breakfast. Won't be going in there again!

Looking for somewhere to have lunch we were drawn in here by the promise of 'oven baked' jacket potatoes, something we rarely see. This did not disappoint. Lovely filter coffee too. Staff are very efficient and friendly.

I came here at the end of the day, which isn't a great time to experience any place, tired staff, clearing up etc. However, apart from the clearing up, it was good. I found the staff pleasant and welcoming. If they were thinking, 'your a bit late', they didn't show it. I was served with a pot of tea and... More

A delightful tearoom. Very clean and spacious. A good menu with a fair choice. The food we ordered was beautifully hot and nicely presented. The cafetiere was warmed before the coffee was made in it. All in all a really good experience.

Sunny day so sat outside. No-one brought menus so we went in and fetched our own, then returned to order sandwiches and soft drinks. Our order did not appear for nearly half an hour. Long after we had finished, no-one had come with a bill, so we went inside and paid. Food was average...my egg mayonnaise sandwiches, for example, did... More

Just had a lovely cuppa and catch up with a friend who needs a gluten free diet. We were very impressed with the range of snacks and treats which were gluten free. Will definitely come again as the service was also very friendly and caring.
