Good Nosh

Always a problem when you are on the move as to where to stop for food. This pub was recommended by my brother in law and it was as good as he said. The staff were friendly and helpful without being intrusive. The menu was fine - not huge but more than enough choice and the prices were very... read more

This is my 2nd visit to this pub despite being local. The first was on a busy Sunday about 3 years ago and the pub was full of noisy kids and the food was lacklustre. As it was my birthday my friend took me and we thought we would give it a go as we had heard good things. When... More

A lovely meal for four in the country. I had the fish cake and the ribs. As the photo shows the meal looked like a massive portion. And it tasted fine but there was no sense that the meat had been marinated in the sauce, but rather had it smeared on afterwards. However, as the photo shows it all got... More

Really great night, taken here by a friend whos family have been coming for years. Everything we ate or saw was beautiful and delicious. Portions perfect, dishes just scrumptious. You know a menu is great when you just cant decide what to have! Very reasonabley priced. The only let down was that they use instant mashed potato instead of the... More

Haven't been to the Mendip Inn for years, definitely changed for the better since, much more modern and bright with great atmosphere. Food was really nice, had great selection for my partner who is a vegetarian. Only downfall is that it took over an hour to arrive.

We stopped on a journey for a meal and came in before opening. They kindly let us wait until they started serving. We had a really delicious dinner and really great service. This is a great place for a nice family meal. Lovely atmosphere, and good food on the adults and the children's menu. I recommend a visit.

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....
