Went to the lion rock while visiting cheddar , there were 7 of us, and it turned out to be a little gem, service was very good, and the food which was general food such as all day breakfast, spaghetti bolognase, sandwiches and cakes, but all was good,the restaurant has a 1950 feel about it, would definitely use the lion rock again, and would recommend this restaurant again

I went to lion rock for afternoon tea with my husband. We were very disappointed the service was slow we had already booked in advance wish I hadn’t of bothered as they were trying to get as many customers in as they could. We ordered the celebration afternoon tea and it was more of a let down the cakes did not seem homemade overall a disappointment won’t be recommended this restaurant to anyone.

Lovely tea rooms - also doing great all-day breakfasts and lunches in the heart of Cheddar, a stone's throw from the main cave entrance and other attractions of the Gorge. Lovely food - plentiful and good value with a fun 1940s/50s vibe to the place. Nice roof terrace area for when the weather's good. Definitely one of the best places to eat in Cheddar if going there for a day out
