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.

    Sunday lunch and the pub was full to bursting. Parking tricky as we had a later table and all spaces taken - so had to park on the main road verge. Moved the car later when some spaces came available. Pub was completely full and buzzing. Atmosphere was good. Young staff were friendly and efficient and somehow kept on top of all the orders despite how busy it was. Food was delicious - sensible portion size - not huge. We all had the lamb wellington which we enjoyed very much. Apparently that has been on the menu for 10 years as so popular. Desserts were good. Brother had an excellent Irish coffee. Overall exceeded my expectations and would go back.

    The service was very slow, took over half an hour to serve starter and them over another half hour to serve main course. Had to send steak back as it wasn't cooked as asked.

    Unfortunately the Sunday roast, which I had high hopes for, simply failed to deliver. The meat (pork in my case) was flubbery, fatty and chewy. The roast potatoes were undercooked. Accompanying veg was watery and tasteless. My partner had the 'Mendip Trio' and was of the same opinion as me with regards to all components of the meal apart from his Lamb Wellington which he said was okay and did taste pleasant. For the price of the dinner, I know a few places in the vicinity that charge similarly, but are head and shoulders above the Mendip Inn's offerings. Sadly, desert was also disappointing. I ordered hoping that something could be salvaged from the experience (not to mention that I was still hungry from not eating the main meal!), but the 'Eton Mess' was a shop-bought chalky meringue with a few chopped up strawberries and some chocolate sauce drizzled on top. A real shame as the pub itself is lovely, but we won't be returning.

    Very long time to get drink and food, one of our starters was forgotten had to ask for it, one of our party was coeliac and very important that the meal was gluten free, very carelessly was given her dinner with a normal Yorkshire pudding luckily noticed and questioned as could have made her extremely ill. Two roast dinners like canteen food. Orange juice probably as cheap as can be. Waited over an hour for main meal. Very poor service will not return.

    Really enjoyed going to the Mendip Inn. The welcome was great, service quick and food was lovely. They were very accommodating given that one of our party couldn't come and others were quite late. Our table wasn't quite ready on arrival but they found us a comfortable seat and took a drinks order and were very attentive. It was really busy and yet the service was quick but didn't feel rushed when we were being served. All round it was a great job by the team there. Thank you

    We booked and had dinner on Sunday evening - were warned that it was a choice of roast plus a few options off the a la carte. We both chose a roast option - varying slightly from the typical - Potatoes were dry (kept from lunch-time?), meat was very thin, fatty around the edges and swimming in the cream and cider sauce that came with the pork. Brisket was tasty, if a little dried out also. Pudding menu came only to be told that two of our favourites were no longer available! Service was average, not many smiles to be had A shame for a birthday meal and a treat to have a night out without the little ones.

    A good Sunday lunch, if a little on the pricey side. Food was well presented for a Sunday roast, with plenty to around. The Lamb wellington and brisket was excellent, with no reservations. The pork and roast beef less so, (the pork was particularly poor, with very thin slices that tasted as if they'd been kept warm a little too long.) Vegetables all well cooked and tasty and the service was excellent. The desserts were again a bit of a mixed bag - some excellent biscotti cheesecake and panacotta, but also some decidedly average sticky toffee pudding (- a thin syrup over plain sponge not really doing it for me - didn't have that home cooked feel you'd hope for.) The staff were all excellent though and the place was very busy, proving they are clearly getting most things right.

    Extremely noisy with a total lack of character and ambiance - more reminiscent of a fast-food restrauant than a pub. Adequate quantities of food, ok'ish but not of the highest quality by any means, and certainly not 'home cooked' - and that's being polite. Must say however, that the chips were quite good! Thought we would give it a try - big mistake! In the future it is back to our normal other local pub, where for a couple of pounds more the food is excellent and home cooked, and the atmosphere is difficult to beat!

    My Dad said it was the best fish and chips he's ever had...and he's had a lot of fish and chips in his 75 years! Would like more salad options, although the staff and chef were very happy to make the delicious starter (goats cheese, beetroot and pomegranate salad) a main size portion. Lovely and clean, and very friendly helpful staff. Good sized portions.
