A few Sundays ago, myself and Scott actually had the pleasure of having a rare day off together amidst chaotic weeks and conflicting schedules. We decided to get out our copy of the South West and South Wales Independent Coffee Guide and find a new place to enjoy some coffee!
The River House
The River House is an adorable little coffee shop in Frome in Somerset, quite near to where I live, that prides itself on serving great coffee and tasty treats.
On a lazy Sunday, this seemed like the perfect way to spend our time – sipping coffee (as we always seem to do…) and having some quality time in the warm on a cloudy autumn day.
On entrance, the place was already rammed and we were lucky to get a little table for two near the door and right next to the main counter full of home-baked treats.
The walls were adorned with picture frames holding various quotes and quirky images which I absolutely loved – particularly the fox one and the “but first, coffee” one.
The River House had a fantastic selection of coffees, teas, and various other drinks. I was especially loving the fact that you could choose between white, dark, or milk chocolate for a mocha or hot chocolate. YUM.
Alongside their drinks menu, they have a range of delicious sounding food! We didn’t order food whilst we were there, but plenty of people did and it all looked and smelled absolutely incredible – so we have made a note to go back there to give the food a go too. They offer a range of breakfast and brunch dishes, with plenty of veggie and vegan options too.
This place is a little gem, just down from all of the main shops but with great service, a great atmosphere and delicious coffee. I can’t wait to go back!
