A place to

eat, drink & sleep


A country pub of distinction: welcoming, friendly and open to all.

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, Michael Porter.

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.

Our Rooms

Our individually designed guest bedrooms are luxurious and elegant, welcoming and above all, comfortable. All rooms are double en-suite, with tasteful, stylish décor and crisp, white linen.

Facilities include complimentary toiletries, free Wi-Fi, Freeview TV, radio alarm clock and hair dryer. An iron and ironing board are available on request. All bathrooms have a power-assisted shower, hand wash basin and lavatory, towel warming rack and large mirror with bright lighting.

Located centrally to the walks and tourist areas of Somerset, a stay at the Mendip Inn provides a comfortable stop-off en-route to your destination or a fantastic base from which to explore the delightful Somerset countryside.


Guest Reviews

  • Lost our way and needed somewhere to eat and fell across the Mendip Inn wow what luck! A very friendly welcome from the moment we walked in. Food was absolutely delicious would highly recommend the Lamb Wellington and Chocolate Peanut Butter Stack for dessert. Service was attentive and all three staff very polite and helpful to the point of giving us directions to find out way around the road closure on the A37! Thank you!

  • Amazing food at reasonable prices. This is our go to restaurant, for any occasion. The food is always cooked to perfection. We’ve not experienced a bad meal yet (and trust me we’ve been there a lot. I would recommend the Mendip Trio, purely so that you can try the lamb wellington. However, if you go for something else I’m sure you won’t be disappointed. They have a lovely room that you can also use free of charge, is there is a larger group or function. I think there were around 20 of us when we used it last and there was plenty of room.

  • Lovely family dinner. Meet up with our son and his lovely girlfriend for dinner on a quiet Tuesday evening. We ate in the bar area and enjoyed a share platter for starters followed by very enjoyable main courses. There was a good choice of both meat, fish and vegetarian meals and the staff were friendly and helpful.

  • Fantastic lunch today for 9 of us at The Mendip Inn (5 adults and 4 under 5y boys). The staff got a table ready for us in 10mins without us needing to book. We had great service, friendly staff and divine food, nice big portions for all! Definitely returning and high recommend, especially for families with children as made us feel welcome even with our crazy boys being loud and active and they even have an ice cream bar! Also has a good outside play area. Absolutely cracking!
