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.

    Friendly quiet atmosphere, pleasant seating and eating area with friendly polite staff. The service was a little slow, but that was probable due to being short staffed in these covid times. Over all very good. Will recommend.

Have been to the mendip inn several times including xmas day last year which was lovely . Would definitely recommend to the Mendip Inn.

    Arrived at the mendip inn for a celebratory birthday meal with a family group of 6. Table booked for 7pm. Had drinks orders taken by a young lady and these were delivered quite quickly. Food orders taken shortly afterwards. Restaurant was fairly busy so we expected a reasonable wait. However after 1 HOUR our food hadn’t arrived! I asked the waitress what the delay was and she replied that they were waiting on one steak to be cooked…. However, after a further 20 MINUTES, meals were still nowhere to be seen! I went to the bar and asked for a second time! The restaurant by then, was pretty quiet. A different waitress seemed quite concerned and went off to the kitchen to enquire what had happened to our food orders. It was by this time, 8.20pm! Absolutely not acceptable! We ate our meals and paid up after receiving an embarrassed apology from the young man who took our payment. We have been to this pub several times as we are local. I’m not sure we will be returning in a hurry. Shame.

    What a wonderful find! Just in the area for a couple of hours and booked in to have lunch. Christmas dinner was the easy choice and it was FAN TAS TIC. Presentation was really inviting, everything was cooked to perfection, the staff were extremely friendly and accommodating and I want to go back and do it all again. Modern interior with plenty of space.

    Had a prawn cocktail for starter. That was lovely, full of flavour. Turkey for main, was bland, potatoes & stuffing was frozen, gravy was watery with no flavour. No question about it, I could do a better job at cooking a dinner. Everything else was fine.

    Very prompt service. We were met at the door and given a choice of a table near children or somewhere much more quiete. No prizes which we chose. If only other establishments would offer this choice. Quick, polite and efficient service and a varied and extensive menu. Superb mains and outstanding deserts. Only one local draught beer available although it was excellent. A little more expensive than some other places we've tried for Sunday Lunch but considering the quality of the food it was excellent value. It is top of the list so far. We've been many times in the past and tried elsewhere but keep coming back and never been dissapointed. I'm not sure we will bother to go elsewhere in the future. We must try an evening meal soon.

    The food we had was lovely. Good quality, very tasty. If I had to have a negative point it would be the pudding for me. I had ice cream and the portion size would have been fine for a child but for an adult it could have been more.
