Visited today with my family today after hearing great reviews. Had such a lovely welcome from the owner and his family. Really made us feel at home. We had food in the restaurant which was outstanding, with the chilli con carne and Duke burger exceptional. Chips were the best i have ever had in a pub! Prices were more than... More

Spent a couple of days down in Shepton visiting a mate and found the pub to be very friendly as are the locals . The food is extremely good as is the beer and cider. The bar staff are really friendly especially Sian. Looking forward to returning soon

Nice community pub in quiet village. The Sunday carvery is generous (beef or pork) and well supported with all the trimmings. Beats a lot of work back home. The beer - Otter Bright - served far too cold for my taste. It wasn't until I had completely polished off my plate that I was able to enjoy the character of... More

I stayed here for ten nights and ate in the restaurant almost every evening. The food was of an exceptional standard, beautifully presented with attentive chef and kitchen staff. I had a different meal each evening and every meal was a delight. Good sized portions and great value for money. I would recommend that you try the duck in the... More

Not your average pub food but something much better fresh ingredients and a proper Chef all served in a traditional pub, it doesn't get much better

The service was excellent even though the place was very full. The meals were well prepared, well presented and very good to eat. Good... More

Turned up on a Thursday night and it was 'Steak Night', 2 10oz Rumps for £22.50. Steaks were perfectly cooked, with trimmings (mushrooms, tomato and onion rings) and a small bucket of chips. Meal was truly excellent. Pub is down a country lane but don't let that put you off. It has a friendly 'local' atmosphere. I have 2 adverse... More
