Sunday roast tasted good but portion sizes not so good. A child portion had two potatoes which was fine but the adult portion had the same amount! The two men in our party were not impressed! Not very good value for money.

Very nice meal my only gripe was two of us ordered steaks and a waitress came to tell us there were no mushrooms left and asked if we wanted extra of something else, I said ok can we have some onion rings to which she very abruptly said oh no they are expensive which took me aback, and I didn’t really know how to respond I don’t really think it would have hurt to give us a couple each, so we ended up with two tomatoes
However the meal was very nice and it was at the end of no doubt a very busy bank holiday weekend so I expect everyone had probably had enough by then

I’m afraid I thought the Sunday Lunch was underwhelming. With so many providers available these days the food needs to be above average but on this occasion average was as good as it got. Lack of taste and a feeling that the meat was “processed” didn’t help. Not outstanding enough I’m afraid.

The menu has changed they don’t do sides anymore . Yorkshire pudding were not the same as didn’t seem homemade . Me and my family have eaten here on a Sunday a lot and this time I wasn’t as happy with the meal as I have been in the past

We booked the Mendip Inn as a stop half-way between Cornwall and Nottingham. Internally, the decor is modern, fresh and extremely smart, with a large restaurant area and a separate bar area. Service was very friendly and polite and the food was very tasty.

Discovered this little gem of a pub recently and the visit was outstanding. Truly faultless, which is hard to come by these days. The atmosphere was great, the decor was beautiful, the service was impeccable and the food was amazing! We will definitely be back. Thank you for giving us a lovely evening.

A party comprising three generations, we thoroughly enjoyed the delicious Sunday Roast with a twist - the service was prompt without being intrusive, and when it came to 'bill time' presented excellent value for money
which is why I bring my special people back to The Mendip time and time again!

Highly recommended

I can't recommend this restaurant highly enough. The menu was very good, the quality, presentation and quantity of food was great and the service was exceptional.

The restaurant was busy but the staff were always attentive and anticipated needs discretely and efficiently. At the end of the meal I was pleasantly surprised with the bill.

I highly recommend the Mendip Inn.

Lovely Sunday lunch. The lamb wellington was exceptional. Apparently the beef was excellent. The wine was very good and reasonably priced. We ate mid afternoon so it was very quiet but still lots of helpful staff around. Would go again but probably at a busier time for better atmosphere.

Food was so good and well priced. Burgers were a big greasy but was so tasty!
Staff did not tell us upon entry that their card machine had broken so I was forced to drive and get cash out. Not ideal!
We weren’t also asked if everything was okay and even had plates offered to be taken away before we’d even finished.
All clean and tidy inside

This is a very nice country pub. When we arrived for dinner I was anxious that the place was very full and a number of people were waiting for food, but in fact it did not impact on service to us at all. We ordered nachos, which were very good and then two burgers - a traditional burger and and a haloumi burger. Both were great, served with fresh and tasty fries and coleslaw. We also ordered a decent bottle of white and a gin and tonic and the total bill was £65.00. So it scored highly on service, food and value.

The food was nice but having been promised roasted new potatoes we were very disappointed to be served just 3 plain boiled new potatoes. When we pointed this out to our waitress she seemed nonplussed and walked away. She was very curt with us throughout which was a shame because the setting is lovely. The was good but a bit over priced for what we had.
