Stopped off here with some dishevelled friends after a festival to refuel was genuinely delicious! well presented, fresh ingredients, great portions, worth every penny! I'd nearly make sure i'm passing this way again sometime in the future just to have the opportunity to eat there again!

During a recent visit to Shepton Mallet, we decided we would go back to the Mendip Inn for dinner, as we had had an excellent dinner there in January. We were not disappointed. It was every bit as good as we remembered!
