The tacky outside is deceiving. The gold windows make the entire place feel cheap; I assure you these windows aren't in keeping with the rest of the decor. The inside of the pub is tasteful and light, yet has the feel of a traditional pub. We only went in for a few drinks but the selection was vast and the... More

We hadn't booked so sat in the bar area, which was lovely. I think I had the nicest and largest pasta ever! It was like an infinite bowl, but very, very good. My partner had an equally large and very good burger. Nice atmosphere, recommended.

Lovely meal out with delicious food. We always manage to over order though as everything on the menu is so yummy! Relaxed atmosphere with great staff.

Compliments to the Chefs Simon and PJ! These top class chefs make it well worth a visit. They are a great asset to the place. We dine there often with our family and friends. Never fail to serve up excellent food. Highly recommended. Well done Mendip Inn! Look forward to visiting again soon. PS - we miss the scotch eggs!

We live quite close to the inn, but have never eaten there. Having recently obtained a Tastecard, we decided to try it out for an anniversary meal. We shall certainly be going back! Service, food, everything was first rate and we had a lovely evening. I'm glad we've finally discovered it!

Five of us adults and eleven children, aged from 8-14 turned up unexpectedly at the Mendip Inn and asked if they could accommodate us for dinner. We were welcomed with open arms and the staff were most co-operative, setting out one big long table for us. They took a chance on us really, as this is a reasonably 'posh' restaurant... More

The pub has been recently refurbished and is very nice inside. The menu is excellent, with lots of interesting options! Unfortunately the price isn't reflective of the food that you get. I found the meal to be tasty (nothing amazing), but certainly very edible. I even enjoyed the atmosphere. However, I found the food to be a little over priced... More
