Great food, warm welcome and great value

Very warm welcome from the resident host, with 3 of the party enjoying the Mulled Orchard Pig Cider by the fire, which on a cold March evening was most welcome. With a great choice of dishes available, the selection from the menu took some time as all the dishes on offer sounded good. We had... read more

This restaurant was recommended to me by a friend and we have been wanting to try it for ages. Lovely warm welcome and a glass or 2 of Prosecco to relax by the fire. We were the only ones there as it was midweek but I'm in no doubt that this place gets busy at weekends. Our starters were lovely... More

We were given a warm welcome upon arrival and had a drink by the fire in the cosy entrance lounge. The food was of a good quality with plenty of choice on the menu with two courses for £20. The problem for us was the lack of atmosphere since there was only one other couple in the restaurant. I would... More

We returned to Blostins for the Valentines Dinner. Good value given the quality. After a warm welcome we settled in to the cosy bar alongside the fire with a mulled cider. We both chose the fish hors d'oevres consisting of smoked salmon, mini fish cake and prawn cocktail. Delicious. My wife had duck cooked to her liking and I chose... More

A small cosy restaurant with friendly atmosphere.The reception area is tiny with a real fire burning in the hearth which added to the cosy atmosphere. This is a family run restaurant and that personal touch again attributed to the atmosphere. We went for the goats cheese tartlet. followed by the belly pork. and both courses were delicious! What we particularly... More

I recently visited this restaurant in Shepton Mallet for the first time. On entry the reception area/bar is quite small, we were a group of 13 and space was tight. There is also a fire in the room which makes it feel warm and cosy. The tables are set over two rooms and have a cottage feel. We ordered a... More

We were staying in Shepton Mallet whilst visiting the Bath Christmas markets and having read the reviews on trip adviser, booked a table for Saturday night. From the minute we opened the door on a very wintery cold night we were made to feel so welcome. The roaring fire in the cosy bar and the lovely lady who remembered my... More
