Excellent food and service

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

A nice welcome in a charming old pub on Mothers day by the landlady. However once seated for our meal the service can only be described as mechansic. The food was brought out in a timely manner, but lacked a personable service. Felt like staff were just knocking out without much passion. The beef was very good quality, let down... More

We first went to the Mendip Inn a few years ago and were very disappointed. Since then it has changed hands and menue so agreed to go again with friends and give it another try. I am really glad we did. The food was excellent with good portion size and 1st class service. We will definitelygo again.

We had a wonderful evening at this delightful resteraunt. Throughly enjoyed the prompt and attentive service received and with a really nice atmosphere made our night really special. The food is very reasonably priced with very reasonable portions to go alongside. All is freshly prepared and no sign of things being bought in. We used our taste card and where... More
