We had booked a meal for a Saturday night and found the place to be very comfortable and welcoming. The food was excellent and very good value reasonable selection of beers which gave us a very enjoyable evening.

We have eaten at the Mendip Inn several times over the last few years, but this time decided to take my 94 year old mother, who lives in a care home nearby, with us for lunch. My husband phoned beforehand to book a table, and asked for a table near the door, as my mother has to use a Zimmer... More

We randomly stumbled upon Mendip Inn on the way back from visiting Cheddar gorge. The decor is clean and Modern, the staff were really friendly but the food was amazing!! I had beef brisket. Beautifully cooked with a selection of tasty vegetables and my boyfriend had the 3 slider burgers with the dirty chips. It was yummy. Thank you.

We enjoyed a lovely birthday meal here with family. Service was great. Our only criticism is that the mains were huge and fairly pricey! Lots of wasted food at the end. Consensus of the table was that we'd much rather pay a little bit less and have a smaller portion. Other than that it was very enjoyable.

Been here many times and had no problem but this time was not so good! Tables a little close to the people next to us, felt like we were having a meal with strangers. I would check your salad, my wife went to eat hers and she had a huge caterpillar in it! This wouldn't put us off we would... More

The bar staff dressed in black are fantastic they could not be more helpful. There was a man behind the bar with... More

Went for lunch with my family today. We arrived near the end of service to be greeted by a very rude barman. He rudely told me that we had to wait 30 minutes to place our order. The wait was not a problem, but his rude attitude was however. The food was ok, not amazing. Such a shame as we... More

Good food, well presented and plenty of it. Ate here twice both times food was good. Staff were great one of the waiters even showed Mum how to fold the napkins in the way she had asked about. Nothing was too much trouble. Loved the cheese board.
