BISTRO | Seasonal menus | Cosy tables

Our deli serves the best cheese for miles, where we showcase the pick of local classics such as Montgomery and Dorset Blue Vinny, plus the finest examples of the European Greats.  We stock cheeses so good, so extraordinary and perfectly matured, you’ll taste the difference in every mouthful.

Turnbulls Bistro serves seasonal home made lunches with many dishes under £10, made here by us with carefully sourced local ingredients. And our coffee, well, it’s Great Taste Award winning, and our hot chocolate special is renowned in playgrounds from Bath to the Jurassic Coast.

We are the big old fashioned yellow double fronted shop on the High Street.  And we’re now ONLINE TOO with our own DeliShop. Come and find us!
