The Mendip Inn is an exciting country pub and coaching rooms concept at the foot of the Mendip Hills, near Glastonbury, owned and run by hospitality entrepreneur, Matthew Lowe. Styled by the talented team behind Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen restaurant, The Mendip Inn takes the concept of a great British Pub and adds an exciting, contemporary style of its own, to the food and design, without losing that sense of welcome you receive at the very best pubs. First class service is at the heart of all that we do. The Mendip Inn offers a fantastic, modern and fresh à la carte menu, seven days a week. We have a weekly specials menu, highlighting local, seasonal produce, cooked to express the flavours of the ingredients, with a twist on exceptional pub recipes. Wednesday is Steak Night, Friday is Fresh Fish Friday, with fresh market fish specials each week, and Sundays are, of course, for fabulous traditional roasts.

    Fantastic service and so lovely to see a pub thriving on a Monday evening. Excellent stuffed pork loin with mixed veg and creamy mustard sauce. My friend ordered the burger which was superb. Thoroughly recommend.

    Good food, good value for money and great service. Didn't realise we'd be dining in the pub part and not the restaurant part of the Mendip Inn, which only slightly detracted from the overall dining experience. A really enjoyable evening.

    Really excellent food and great service. The quality of the produce was lovely and the portion size was generous. Cannot fault it. My only suggestion would be to amend the menus where it says that ‘all above items will come with chips and mixed leaves’. You would assume that this meant a small salad on the plate as well. However, when I questioned it, I was told that the gem lettuce inside the burger constituted the mixed leaves (despite my items specifically saying that it came with gem lettuce leaves inside the burger). The chap was very polite and said that he would give a side on the house on this occasion. Problem solved! It should be noted however that others on my table had burgers which were in the category of having mixed leaves on the side but they had no lettuce in their burgers at all and therefore it cannot be the case that the lettuce in the burger constitutes The described mixes leaves. A very pedantic point but one that needs sorting out one way or the other LOL :-)

    Bit of a disappointing Sunday roast - the meat was nice but the potatoes were undercooked and dry and the Yorkshire puddings were also very dry. Such a shame as feel the food quality should reflect the price.

    The food and service we had were both excellent at The Mendip Inn. However we were cramped into a corner table, very close yo another couple, we could each hear and take part in the others' conversations. There was also a speaker overhead which wasva little too loud. My husband and I had anticipated a quiet Sunday lunch together and ended up sharing our 'date' with strangers. The prices were not extortionate and the food was excellent, with both our cuts of meat being cooked to perfection, the portions were very generous too and neither of us could manage a dessert, sadly.

    New owners? Lovely staff, efficient, good food, good choice. Dog friendly. When we sat down a dog bowl and treats were brought over. Thoughtfully given a table in a corner so even though our dogs are well behaved they were out of the way for guests that prefer not to dine near them!

    Roast consisted of carrots and red cabbage two potatoes meat and a yp. It wasn’t a lot for £17. Paid £4,50 for caulk cheese which was really hard. It felt like they had ran out of veg and we just got what was left. The three meat roast the beef was just grey not rare or slow cooked just grey. Desserts were nice but roast let the whole thing down. Although build your own sundae for the kids was already made so that was misleading. Usually enjoy our food but we were really disappointed.

    We visited here before and the food was good so came back with some friends. Where we sat felt cramped and was noisy. The main that I ordered I had last time but this time was completely different apart from the goats cheese. This time it had olives instead of the nuts and the dressing was not the same. My husband had ham egg and chips. The ham was slimy and the only garnish was the pepper on the egg! The chips looked pale and under fried. We also felt rushed. We had literally taken the last mouthful of the starter and the plates were whisked away and the main bought to us immediately. We won’t be back.

    Perfect for a Thursday evening dinner. Lovely food, lovely staff and atmosphere. Loved the log fire which was on all the time even though the place was fairly quiet. We both chose from the specials menu and was very impressed. Not the cheapest country pub but definitely worth it based on our experience.

    I’m not one to complain or go to the trouble of writing a review but The Mendip Inn was overall a pretty poor & disappointing experience. We were told when we were seated that we only had 5 minutes to order before they closed the kitchen & we hadn’t even been handed menus. The two lagers we ordered in the first round of drinks were completely flat & looked more like ale. The food arrived & was warm at best. The two side dishes we ordered were forgotten & had to ask twice for them to be brought out. We then ordered a second round of drinks which were completely forgotten & had to remind the waitress twice in the space of 30 minutes. The drinks arrived with no ice & we were told that they had switched the ice machine off as they were closing soon (if they had made the drinks when we ordered them then they would have had ice?!). We were then basically rushed out of the door with a waitress coming up to us every couple of minutes telling us that they were closing soon & we needed to pay. Disappointing & poor experience. Would not recommend to anyone & will not be returning.

    The food was excellent however, the bill was put on the table before we’d even ordered our coffee. The waiter did apologise . At 9.45 the bill was brought to us again even though we hadn’t asked for it and then the card machine at 9.55! We felt that we had to leave straight away and so felt uncomfortable.

    All was fine as usual, however for some reason i was given Beef instead of Pork, but they did change it for me, then for the next 60min evry time a staff member walked past it was, "is evrything ok" " is your food ok" was a little repetative for 60min.

    This has been a regular place for us to dine over the years, but yesterday's visit will be our last. This place has really gone downhill. The menu has been reduced drastically and the options on offer are very poor. On top of that, they had run out of many options, from the starters, mains and desert! My wife is vegetarian and there was only one option for her, vegetarian Wellington but they were out and had Falafels on a plate of gravy. The service was terrible and slow, we were all fed up by the end of our meal, it was a meal for my mother's 70th birthday and I wish I'd booked elsewhere to dine. There was a 10% service charge added to the bill which I requested to be removed, I've never done that before but it was such a poor experience, there's just no way I'm tipping for poor service.

    Food was nice even though some things were unavailable. The waitress couldn’t even crack a smile. Served food over your head rather than handing it to you. And asked for sauces and didn’t come back to had to get it yourself.

    Service and food were good, but as usual not a lot of choice for vegetarians. The veggie wellington was quite spicy without any warning. We did feel a little hidden out of the way at the end of the pub and the table & chairs were odd heights.
