“Friendly atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2014

We popped in early evening on a Sunday and, although we were a little early, were greeted warmly and given a menu to browse with a drink. We were made to feel very welcome, and the food was really good. it looks like they have a very good wine selection, so if this appeals to you it may be worth a visit.

“Wife's 60th birthday afternoon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2014 via mobile

After leaving Shepton Mallet a year ago, we still had many friends and family still in the area. Pew decided to have afternoon tea at the Thatched Cottage. The staff could not have been more helpful. Afternoon tea was well presented and just good food. The sandwiches were like they used to be, good and basic. Lovely. Will go again

“To Absent Friends”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2014

Reasonably good ambience, slightly better than average food and good service, but the gaps between courses were so vast that we raised a glass to absent friends (the waiting staff). We even contemplated doing a weekly shop in the nearby Tesco store between courses. Three hours for a three course lunch, is way too long in a busy reatuarnat, but it wasn't Maybe that's why.

“Just what Shepton needed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2014 via mobile

My husband and I have visited this restaurant 6 times now for lunch & evening meals on our own, for Sunday lunch, weekday lunch and evening meal with family. We have never been disappointed with our meal or service. The menu is good and interesting, and reasonably priced, the staff friendly and welcoming. Some reviews say that service is slow but I feel that usually means food is freshly cooked and not microwaved. We would recommend this restaurant to anyone.

“Saturday night dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2014

After a personal recommendation, my husband and I decided on a belated anniversary meal. Everything, from the welcome, to the first class décor and ambience, to the excellent food was first class. Will definitely go again. Thank you all.
