Amazing food! I had the falafel roast, and brownie for after. Both food so so incredible! Family also all had the most wonderful meals! Would 100% recommend and would definitely go again! (Price is fair and certainly worth the treat of how good the food tastes!)

We had an excellent menu with many gluten free options and the waiter even arranged for me to have my chicken off the bone (breast). He was very polite, helpful, clean and tidy. The price is fair for very tastey, non chain food. I highly recommend The Mendip Inn

A lovely Christmas Meal with my husband. I had the vegetarian – to start the delicious Camembert, with a beautiful Gooseberry compote followed by Savoy Cabbage leaves stuffed with Butternut Squash with roast trimmings, to finish Poached Autumn fruits. The staff were efficient, polite and friendly. Thank you.

Service was a let down , forgotten drink, several staff waited our table but didn’t talk to each other.hence we had to repeat ourselves several times. One male staff addressed my wife as ‘darling’ not on that.

I don’t visit this pub often but have always regarded it as a welcoming stop when travelling that way. Sadly on this occasion the welcome wasn’t particularly warm. We waited well in excess of 5 minutes to even be greeted and then longer to be served. Staff seemed distracted and lacking in patience. We weren’t shown to a table nor did we have the different menu options explained to us. It was a case of ‘sit over there or over there’ despite an advance booking. The pub wasn’t overly busy so would have expected a more personable service.
The food was adequate but not overwhelming.

I booked a table for two people to have roast dinner for Sunday because we saw on the menu that they do a vegetarian roast (falafel), so was excited to try. We checked the menu again the day before to ensure it was still on there and it was. Arrived on time for the booking, but nobody came to greet us despite the restaurant not looking very busy. A short-haired lady avoided eye contact with us complately, so we had to go to the bar area to get attention. We were finally acknowledged and shown to our table. We had to go and find menus ourselves because nobody brought any over to us. The falafel roast was no longer on the menu, so we checked with the waitress and she reassured us with confidence the kitchen was able to serve this. Turned out they just "sold out" and offered to add more veg instead. This was the first time we ever came to the Mendip Inn, but we won't be returning because the service was awful, there were dirty crockery everywhere and other loud customers made the short 10-minute experience very poor.

We all agreed our Sunday roast beef was nice would have preferred vegetables on a separate dish to help ourselves maybe with a bit more choice, and two Yorkshire puddings rather than just the one. Dessert was just the right size. Would visit again.

The second time we’ve been to the mendip. We meet our friends here as a half way point they come from Bristol and we come from Yeovil’. We’ve only ever had roast on a Sunday both times but both occasions it’s been delicious. The brisket of beef is mouth watering as is the sticky toffee pudding. We’ve already booked to come back in new year.

I booked through opentable some time ago as the restaurant was recommended to me I had my family down from London and are always looking for new places to go however when we arrived it was extremely busy it was difficult to find anywhere to park and it was fairly noisy when we arrived however it was to an except-able level. We were told we had to wait 40mins for food as they were busy I joked that was fine if they offered us a free drink but they didn’t and felt they should have also the food was not all that good average I’d say and the portions were massive I know some people like this but it just puts me off more than anything the coke I ordered which was in a glass bottle was flat so I had to complain about that so overall I wasn’t impressed at all and won’t be returning.

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.
