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.

    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.

    Visited for lunch with friends and enjoyed good food and service. There is scaffolding outside so I hope this means the place is being tidied as the external appearance has deteriorated significantly over the lock down period. Happy to support a local eatery and worth another visit. Convenient main road location so it is easy to get to as winter approaches.

    The mushroom bourguignon was very bland. The vegetable Wellington was great as were the puddings but we were sat behind the door which wasn’t great.

    Sadly we had to wait for an hour for our food, which spoiled the experience. After finally getting the food and tucking in my husband realised he didn’t have any roast potatoes on his plate. They did rectify this when I called someone over, but there was no apology. Saying all this we did enjoy the food, it was tasty and hot and the puddings were delightful. I would say avoid peak times if possible.

    Excellent Sunday lunch. Despite being very busy made no complaints when others in our party were 20 minutes late, which I am sure messed up their planned schedule. Were with an elderly relative who struggled to hear over the background noise, but this was simply a feature of being busy.

    Our first table was very noisy in the main restaurant we could hardly hear ourselves talk so we moved to the bar area which was much better. The service was poor staff are very young and untrained. They are doing their best bless them but they need some training. The Sunday lunch was cold and I had a long hair in mine. Very underwhelming. It was expensive and poor quality.

    Ribs- reheated and not made in the kitchens. Sides of cheesy garlic bread and chips we're good. Burger - nothing special Lamb Wellington - shredded cooked lamb pressed into greasy puffed pastry. Tasteless. The seasonal vegetables mediocre. The cranberry jus was good. Overpriced. Service was friendly and attentive.

    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.
