After passing the Inn many times when visiting my daughter in Wookey and previously trying to reserve a table to find they were fully booked we were really looking forward our Sunday lunch.
After looking at the menu and board two decided to have the Roast beef and the other Scampi. When the food arrived the presentation was good and the person who had the Scampi really enjoyed it. However the beef although plentiful was overcooked and tough. The roast potatoes were dry and the green veg not cooked to our taste. The service was hit and miss some staff not very smiley and one was on the verge of rudeness. Saying that two of us ordered dessert and one cam with ice cream instead of custard the other did not appear. We waited and a very nice young lady the only smile we saw on staff that day came to see if all was ok. We explained and she dealt with the matter and we received the correct order. At no time did anyone ask us if the food was ok which is standard in most eateries now. An expensive disappointing Sunday Lunch

We had a Sunday lunch with friends at The Rodney Stoke Inn last weekend. Have been a few times for a casual drink, but this was the first time we had eaten there. The Inn is very easy to find; it is on the main road between Cheddar and Wells, about midway between both towns.

The Inn has large car park, and offers a lovely southerly view across the Somerset Levels.

The interior is well presented and the dining room has a large and high extension with floor to ceiling glazing, which makes the restaurant feel light and airy.

The menu is comprehensive and there are also "specials" advertised on a board.

Excellent choice of food (our group chose different dishes (fish and chips, whitebait, ham egg and chips, liver and mash) with lots of side dishes. 2 of our party had starters. The food was good, the service was friendly and professional, and we were made to feel very welcome.

Price-wise, the value was good; 2 starters, 4 main courses and 2 rounds of drinks for 4, and the bill was approx £70.

No hesitation in recommending The Rodney Stoke Inn,

We attended a New Year Eve function here. It was a superb meal in every way. Quality, quantity and value for money were exceptional. The service was excellent and the disco was extremely good. Couldn't fault it. Neil the landlord put us at ease and made us feel very welcome.

Thank you Neil & Annette.
