On a Sunday lunchtime for a birthday celebration. Service was good and there was a good atmosphere. Unfortunately the food wasn't as good as it usually is and the portions were a lot smaller. I ordered prawn cocktail to start and my husband ordered pate, but we swapped-the pate was so small, it was definitely not enough for my husband!... More

We were driving home to Derby and passed this pub which had been recommended by friends. We stopped as it was lunch time and had a simple cheese ploughmans. The cheese was excellent, as was the presentation and the service. Definitely will back,for dinner next time.

During a recent visit to Shepton Mallet, we decided we would go back to the Mendip Inn for dinner, as we had had an excellent dinner there in January. We were not disappointed. It was every bit as good as we remembered! As on our previous visit, we found the menu to be an interesting mix of traditional pub food... More

This is the third time I've eaten here in the last few months, and each time the food has been fantastic. We always receive a warm and friendly welcome, and so does my dog, Whiskey. It is very much a food pub, very contemporary design, clean and smart, with wooden floors, and a great menu with good vegetarian options. We... More

We had been looking for a pub for about half an hour when we spotted The Mendip Inn. We had been travelling for a couple of hours and we wanted a pleasant lunch to kick start our holiday in Somerset. We could not have found better. We were made welcome, served a wonderful lunch and enjoyed the extremely pleasant environment... More

Hmmm what can I say, we arrived at the Mendip Inn after a full on day at the North Somerset show looking for a nice pub meal. We were greeted by a reluctant young man who told us to 'sit anywhere' which we did. He then came to take a drinks order and when we asked for a juice he... More

This was our first visit to the Mendip inn, the first of many I am sure. The menu is diverse and really interesting, Staff are definitely on the ball - very good service. The dining area is modern - a good place for friends and family to get together - the place was buzzing with conversation. We chose the sizzler... More
