Having just been ignored in River Cottage across the road, we were pleased that this establishment was far more welcoming from the offset. Pleasant surrounding, friendly staff, drinks and cake was fine.

Pop in to the Trinity Coffee shop often, and always well treated, with quick, efficient service. Market day on Thursday can be busy. They do a mean cappacino!

Went in for a hot drink and cake. The carrot cake and Coffee and Walnut cakes were excellent. No complaints about the hot drinks either. Friendly service, highly recommended.

Went in with a friend for lunch. We enjoyed soup, wasn't fantastic but perfectly edible. We enjoyed looking out the window and watching the world go by. We had a mooch around the shop and tried on some clothes.

Whenever we are in Axminster, we have our lunch here. It is a bright and cheerful coffee shop with a very varied lunchtime menu. They cater for people on a gluten free diet as well. On this occasion, my husband had quiche with vegetables and I had a toasted Brie and cranberry sandwich.

Arrived in Axminster around lunchtime, looked for somewhere to have a quick coffee and a bite to eat but saw everything was already full. Sat in the church yard looking around, across the road we were surprised to see that Trinity House department store has a coffee room. It was really nice, well priced and had lovely cakes on display... More

Thank you for your lovely review of Trinity House Axminster. We are very pleased that you enjoyed your experience. However, please note, Trinity House is NOT closing down, and neither is the Coffee Shop (it is our homewares store). We would be very grateful if you could please edit your review and remove this last sentence, as this may confuse... More

We are regular visitors at Trinity House, sometimes just for a drink and often for lunch. The food is always brilliant, the staff are always friendly, polite and attentive. The atmosphere is relaxed and the decor adds to the enjoyment of our visit. Highly recommended
