Having spent the day at Dunster Castle, we swung by Minehead to get an overdue lunch / early dinner at around 5:45. Mullions had a two for £12 pre-six o'clock deal which we decided to try.
The interior is a bit retro seventies Italian - thick sculpted artex walls and fake thatched roofs, But there was nothing fake about the warm welcome, service and food.
Despite appearing to be a little short staffed, I guess due to the time of day, our waiter was having to see to the growing number of folk arriving but kept his pleasant demeanour going and saw to everyone's needs.
My wife and daughter had cottage pie and gammon steak from the menu. The pie was home cooked and tasty and the gammon steak a nice thick chunk of flavourful meat. I went for beer battered fish and chips. Nice batter and lovely crumbly fish with a great tartar sauce. All plates came with nice chips.
We had a round of desserts - poached pears - my wife thought they were going to be hot and was surprised when they were not. The jury is still out about whether she liked them or not, but any doubt there was more than made up for with the decaf mocha coffee. She's quite particular about this drink and was very happy with her choice.
The other two puds were sticky toffee pudding and chocolate pudding with chocolate sauce. Nice portions that rounded off the meal. I suspect they were not home made, but they did the job and sat nicely with the rest of the afternoon meal deal. Three meals, three desserts and three puds for around £11 a head.
The nearest thing to a complaint is we could not give a nice farewell to our waiter as he served coffee, dealt with an enquiry from a customer who'd come in from the street and was taking another order from a couple in the window. He'll sleep well tonight!
