Called in one Sunday evening having passed the pub a few times to check the place out . We got a very a friendly welcome & the food that was being served looked good so we booked a table for the following Wednesday evening. We arranged to meet our friends there and as they were coming from different areas we... More

Second time meeting friends at this pub and the standard was just as high. Lovely atmosphere, very good service and lovely food. It's now firmly our get together venue!

Came here for lunch one Friday. Menu is excellent, a bit on the pricey side but the food is certainly worth it. Sizzling Duck which melts in the mouth, and chunky triple cooked chips the size of railway sleepers! Heard a conversation that they can be incredibly busy on weekend evenings, so make a booking.

This was a recommendation from a member of staff at the Mulberry factory outlet further down the road. Although 2:30pm on a Sunday we easily got a table for two, offered menus and drinks. Prosecco by the glass really pleased my wife and I tried a beer from a local brewery which was very palatable. We choose from the two... More

First time for Sunday lunch, table booked for 12.30, drink and then shown table on time, varied menu, I had the fried goats cheese with beetroot for starter, others didn't have a starter. Quite delicious. Three had 'rare' roast beef, one Somerset pork. Mustard and horseradish bought to table without asking, beef was rather thinly sliced and not that rare... More

This used to be a pretty horrible pub on a busy road. Now it is a welcoming and warm place to go for lunch or a pleasant evening with friends. The uncomplicated food is of an excellent quality, but you will pay for the privilege. This is not the cheapest place to eat 'pub food', but this is not exactly.pub... More

Having visited The Mendip Inn tonight during our short stay in Somerset I can honestly say that it's the best meal I've eaten for a long time. I rarely order a lamb meal when going out as I feel it's a difficult one to really achieve perfection. So in my eyes I took a gamble with the lamb Wellington and... More

We booked an early table at the Mendip Inn because we had my three young Grand children with us. There was 9 of us in total. What can I say the staff were very friendly and could not do enough for us, the food was excellent and a good variety to please everyone. This was our last night in Somerset... More
