Tried to visit this cafe yesterday with my wife whilst in the area for a week. Looked nice, 10.30am on a very breezy morning. Opened the door to enter with only 1 lady with a young child sat at a table.
Straight away we were...asked by a member of staff sat behind a desk if we had booked in. When we said we hadn't but just wanted a hot drink we were told we couldn't unless we booked in to paint our crockery.
We declined and went elsewhere. After leaving the other cafe we walked past the corner house. It was empty. We walked around Watchet for an hour, walked past the corner house and guess what,,,, it was empty.
I know they offer a takeaway service next door but when you want a seat or to get out of the cold for a hot drink what good is that.
Give this place a swerve. It's not a cafe.More

I came here with some friends to have coffee and was feeling hungry so decided to have the cream tea. It came out with a good helping of cream and jam, I had the local whortleberry jam which was delicious. The scones where amazing and...when I spoke to the lovely staff I found out the chef makes them herself. Nicest scones I've ever had.More
We had the crab cakes and quiche both of which were really flavoursome and came with super fresh and generous salad. Next we had a cream tea, with the best homemade scones and local jam (and clotted cream). Great service to top - we were...made to feel really welcome here by all the staff we saw with the attitude that nothing was too much trouble. Super efficient too.More
Went in for lunch/afternoon tea and received great service for our large group. All the tables were full but they kindly made us lunch and drinks to takeaway. They were friendly and the food was delicious, especially the large scones! They carefully packaged everything for...us and made us feel very welcome. Thank you.More
We can never resist coming to the Corner House when we're in Watchet. Such a delight with lovely attentive charming staff and tasty generous portions.We sat opposite the window and could watch the activity on the harbourside near the statue of the Ancient Mariner. Such...a treat!More
