Farm and Field Cafe - Review
Farm and Field Cafe is part of the Frogmary Green farm, nestled in the beautiful south Somerset countryside, in South Petherton.
A visit is a delight to the senses, with every attention paid to detail. The newly extended cafe is bright and airy, with splashes of colour from flower displays and an Instagram background wall, complete with neon sign saying ‘this must be the place’. And indeed it is ‘the place’ – this is probably the best cafe in Somerset. From ambiance to food – we couldn’t fault it.
The atmosphere is friendly and relaxed, with families, young children and dogs, all welcomed by the most friendly staff. Inside Farm and Field Cafe is a delight but there’s also a veranda complete with log burner and blankets in the colder weather for anyone wanting to snuggle up with a hot drink.
Then in the summer, you can wander through the beautiful wild flower fields of Frogmary farm and sit by the lake. This is such an idyllic place, and we haven’t even got to the food yet which is amazing! Read the verdict below…

The menu offers a good range of vegan, vegetarian and gluten free options, with tasty twists on staple breakfast favourites until 11am. The mouthwatering brunch menu is available until 3pm and is so imaginative, over and above what you’d find in other cafes. There’s an amazing range of homemade cakes and their coffee (Clifton) is delicious.
Most things on the brunch menu are around £10, including: laksa, smokey and sweet burgers, Moroccan halloumi salad, pulled pork harissa, avocado on toast with feta, pancakes (berry, corn and jalapeno, or Cajun spiced buttermilk chicken), big caramelised banana crumpets, panna cotta, tequila and chicken burrito, fried chicken with American biscuits. Then there are the sarnies: Reuben, Club and kimchi cheese,
What we ate…
Pumpkin in a light batter with sesame seeds, on a bed of greens, garnished with the cafe’s trademark flowers. This was cooked perfectly, biting through the light, crisp batter into the moist pumpkin was a delight.
The berry pancakes were so beautifully presented and cooked to perfection, fluffy with the tiniest crispness on the outside. The mixed berry compote was so thick and fruity, a perfect partner to the whipped yoghurt, garnished with fresh fruit and flowers of course!
