I found myself in Somerset as the result of a surprise trip for my 30th Birthday! I am sooooo glad we consulted trip advisor when deciding where to dine on Tuesday evening! The descriptions of The Sheppey sounded right up our street and on locating this magical place on a dark lane behind a pretty ordinary front door our expectations were surpassed!!! There was a special feel about the place and with us being 'foreigners' the pleasant barman was happy to advise on the best cider! Our waitress (Romney....so sorry if thats incorrect - I'll blame the cider) was lovely, offered us a choice of seats and explained the bits of The menu that were too posh to understand, encouraging my partner to try the chilli lamb burger with triple cooked chips. He was so glad he took her advice as the burger was Devine - thick, juicy,immaculately presented and a complete treat for the tastebuds! I myself chose the lamb rump with seasonal vegetables and it was simply the best meal I can ever remember eating! The lamb was ridiculously tender, vegetables cooked to perfection in the most delicious rich sauce! The desserts were even more impressive with a dark choc and peanut brownie that just melted in the mouth and a cinnamon sponge cooked to perfection! The prices were more than reasonable for such a high standard of food and I'd still be beaming from ear to ear if it had cost double - it was THAT good!!! We are now back home in Middlesbrough and still talking about this meal!
All I can advise is that wherever you are right now just get in your car and drive to The Sheppey!!! And if they aren't open.....WAIT!!!!
