A welcome respite from a long diversion, the pub looks great and the menu sound good too although there is no hint whether the food is fresh and home cooked or out of the freezer. However, the Apple and Parsnip soup tasted like Apple sauce from a jar and it was impossible to eat a whole bowl full, indeed my... More

Stopped for a quick pub lunch on the way home from Bristol Airport and were delighted with this lovely refurbished pub. Great menu, friendly staff and a delicious lunch.

We arrived late afternoon (on our way home from a day at the seaside) because we noticed a big play apparatus in the gardens, very handy when you have 11 children with you! The staff were really helpful, service was great and they didn't bat an eyelid at serving 19 people a late lunch. It's a classy place and I... More

The Mendip Inn offers good quality food in country pub surroundings. The Sunday lunch is value for money as are many of the choices on the menu. For special occasions the restaurant side is upmarket and food cooked to order. Unrushed at tension and a pleasant atmosphere.

Four of us enjoyed Sunday lunch the beef was very tender, although sliced very thinly! The owner seemed rather gruff without a smile or pleasantries, his ? wife made up for him. Delicious desserts.

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
