My husband and I chose a selection of Mezze's. They were all absolutely beautiful and perfectly presented. We found the staff were all very polite and helpful. Would certainly recommend eating here and we look forward to returning in the future.

We have been here a few times now and never been let down! The food is great, especially the drunken pork and beef stifado on the mezze menu. The service is good with lovely friendly staff. A great night every time and very reasonably priced.

Booked a table for two as had a recommendation. No one to show us to table so went to the bar. Nowhere to sit so stood. Eventually ordered a bottle of wine but young bar staff not very friendly. Didn't seem very happy in her job. Shown to table - not in restaurant, but out the side and next to... More

Visited the The ship and castle after a recommendation from friends, booked a table of 4 and arrived at 7:15pm. The restaurant was quite busy at this point but by no means packed. It took them 20 mins to take our order, at which the waiter at was quite blunt and unwelcoming (turns out he was the manager). The menu... More

We ate here with a large group of friends and felt the staff were friendly, welcoming and efficient. All the meals arrived together and everything was hot, well presented and delicious. I would particularly recommend the veggie mezze starter - absolutely scrumptious! All in all, very good food and excellent value for money.

I have been going here for several years and they never disappoint. The food is always excellent, they have changed the Mezze menu added different foods and also the mixed Mezze no longer includes dessert and the price reflects this. As always the service is excellent with friendly staff and the food is great, so many combinations of wonerful flavours... More

I spent two nights here while exploring Somerset and Exmoor just before Easter. When you approach, it looks like an average pub from the outside, but this is a friendly and comfortable family hotel above a very imaginative and well-run Mediterranean-style restaurant. The rooms are very large and comfortable, with a huge en-suite bathroom and large shower (plenty of room... More

Didn't stay over as we only live around the corner but we went for a meal here and enjoyed the food. The service was 'OK' and there was a nice atmosphere but for some reason it didn't quite gel for us - just one of those things I guess. Still, it's probably worth a visit if you're looking for mezze-style... More

My family of four was traveling and had a very early flight out of Bristol airport in the morning and I hesitantly booked this for a overnight stay. I was pleasantly surprised how nice this place was. The room we had was spacious, decorated nicely, and clean. They provided nice touches to the room- coffee press, cookies, etc. One of... More
