We went there last night for dinner and we thoroughly enjoyed it! I highly recommend their Scotch Eggs starter, so delicious!

We called by for Dinner but nearly didn't stay as we were told upfront that the Kitchen had run out of Chips. If it had been an Italian, Chinese, or Indian that wouldn't have made any difference whatsoever, but for a Pub serving Ribs, Burgers, Barbeque Chicken, Steaks, Mixed Grills etc, the lack of Chips was a big No No....

Had an evening meal here with family. Not one of us could say we were impressed with the food. Average at best. Bland and boring and VERY expensive for what you get. Drinks prices are criminal.The pub has a fab decor and the service was brilliant but sadly none of us would go back.

Great service, excellent staff let down by the average food - it's okay but we wouldn't rush back. Food was very basic and flavours rather bland.

Had a lovely meal here with a friend recently. Staff were friendly and attentive without being over fussy. My friend chose a steak and declared it mouthwatering and I opted for the fish cakes which were delicious. My second visit here, just a shame it involved us both driving and we couldn't a bottle of wine. Will definitely go back... More

What can I say, food was excellent, best steak I have ever eaten, good pint of real ale and great service. Made better by the fact they take Tastecard :) Will be going back soon

I had never heard of The Mendip Inn before, but drove past and decided to have lunch. I had a delicious roast dinner and a scrumptious desert. The service was good, and the food was great. Highly recommend it, and will definitely be going back!

The pub is cheaply furnished and quite shabby and grubby with food from previous diners on the floor. We sat in what seemed to be a converted skittle alley with a low ceiling. It was very noisy with sound echoing. The food was awful. This place makes the classic error of serving small portions of the vegetarian options. Their vegetable... More
