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.

We were attracted to this venue from the pictures on the net, but when we arrived we found a cafe/restaurant with a bar, not the old fashioned pub we expected. Not withstanding this the food was excellent, with large size helpings. If you wanted a pub you would be disappointed, but if some food and a drink you would be... More

We were very unorganised this Father's Day we didn't book a table at any of our local restaurants (a little foolish!!). After driving around for 45 mins we happen to come across the Mendip Inn. Luckily they could squeeze us in. The food was very good and the service excellent. A good choice for the children. They were very impressed... More

Mixed grill dry as dust, one of the 4 sweets arrived ages b4 others, no one offered anything else after clearing table. Ordered wine-chased this up after waiting ages-they didnt have any. Apparently it was too much for anyone to let us know this! They then put... More
