We visited the Mendip Inn as a family group of 19 people, we were sat at an annexe to the main restaurant area this was good as we had a number of young children. The menu was good and had a good selection. I chose the Whitebait for starters and these were nice and tasty, my main course was slow... More

We had lunch here for a post Christmas family get together with 15 adults and 4 children. We had been reserved a side room at the back of the pub which was ideal since the children can be pretty lively, and our hosts were extremely accommodating with their food options. The menu had a good range with 2 vegetarian options,... More

The lamb in puff pastry was very nice as was the sizzling fillet steak, also the plain steak and chicken and ribs were also nice. The portion sizes... More

We booked the Mendip Inn as a treat for Christmas Day...just me and my partner. We weren't disappointed. The food was delicious over the 5 courses and all cooked to perfection. The staff worked so well together and you could see that it was all managed perfectly from serving drinks to serving the food. Nothing was rushed and adequate time... More

Went with family for late Saturday lunch so pub was not busy. Had white bait, pulled lamb in puff pastry and treacle tart. Order taken quickly and drinks arrived. Food was delicious and plenty of it. I think this us one of the best places to eat in this part of Somerset. I will certainly return.

We went here for a family meal to start the weekend. We all ordered a burger and unfortunately couldn't eat them as they were too spicy - no mention of spice in the menu. The manager, whilst accepted that we were not happy, was not apologetic or in the least concerned.

The food was very nice. The atmosphere is quiet cold as the rooms are so big. Service was very good with pleasant staff.
