Sunday Lunch
The Mendip Inn is an exciting venue by food and hospitality entrepreneurs Jon and Nick Rossi, the brothers Rugantino Restaurant at the Ancient Gatehouse in Wells.

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 without losing that sense of welcome you get at the very best pubs.

As well as the A La Carte menu, we also offer the best Sunday lunch in Mendip and a children’s menu. Our menus offer wide range of options for vegetarians.

I would recommend the Mendip Inn because the service was second to none and the food was served promptly and tasted great

Roast beef very disappointing. Reheating pre sliced (possible pre packed topside ) was not what I expected.
The smell of the gents toilets were wonderful too whilst eating.

Amazing roast and really friendly staff despite the 2 children and 1 baby in our party making lots of noise and mess!
Want to come back to try more of the menu but can definitely recommend the roast and desserts!
Thank you for having us!

I felt the service was good, but we came for Wednesday steak night which was advertised on the website and also on the menu but in actual fact had been discontinued and this was no longer a thing. We went for steaks anyway as that is what we came for but our steaks were both missing the confit tomato and mushroom, however the table next to us had both on their plate. Charging £3 for peppercorn sauce is extortionate prices, it is not worth that in any shape or form. I spent £6 just on sauce. Also the nachos we ordered were poor quality, £9 for some tortillas covered in mozzarella and some tiny not even homemade pots of guacamole, sour cream and salsa. Our desserts were the worst part of the meal, the sticky toffee had been re heated for too long and was chewy and dry, not enough sauce either. And the blood orange set cream that was supposed to come with orange segments had actually come with chopped mixed peel which is wholly unacceptable. The set cream was small, far too set and such poor quality for £7! I love the whole idea of the Mendip inn, but the quality is very poor. We could have gone to a Michelin star or rosette for the prices we paid that night. I didn’t complain at the time as the waitress was very young and I didn't want to make her night rubbish, but I really regret paying £60 for the quality that we got that night.

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.
