Very quaint restaurant with the feeling of eating in someone's house. Excellent food well prepared and nicely served. Portion size looks a little small but is actually perfect if you want three courses. Wine list excellent although a tad expensive. We had a middle priced red which was smooth and served well by the waiter. We would happily go back... More

We visited Blostins as a birthday treat for a special friend and were not disappointed. Both menus offered were varied and having ordered dishes from both can say they were both equally delicious. Beautifully cooked and presented, we especially enjoyed the asparagus and smoked duck starters and the sea bass main course. Deserts were delightful and the famous coffee and... More

We dined at Blostins soon after they opened just over 30 years ago & were amazed at the quality of the food & the service. We have been back periodically over the years & always been happy. After tonight's experience, I can confirm that nothing has changed! Check out this little gem nestling in the heart of Shepton Mallet. You... More

For some years now we have been appreciative diners at Blostins. You fall into the cosy reception area and contemplate the menu on the wall while you enjoy a pre-prandial drink. You order, and are led to your table when it is ready. There is always a seasonal fixed-price menu which is so good that I have seldom strayed from... More

We were looking for somewhere to eat whilst away on holiday as a group of 7 friends and stumbled upon this place thanks to trip advisor. Thank goodness we did, it's a real hidden gem! From the outside it may not look like anything much, but do not be deceived, the food is something really special. The menu was relatively... More

We arrived at this restaurant by chance, looking for somewhere to eat on the way from Frome to Bridgwater. The pork dish I had was brilliantly designed and executed, with an interesting and plentiful sauce, a melt-in-the-mouth piece of apple, and a sprig of crackling. My wife had an excellent fish dish. Gourmet meal results without gourmet meal prices. Just... More
