Restaurant description

Housed within a quirky restored barn, The Sheppey Inn is a contemporary country pub near Wells. Just 5 minutes from Glastonbury, The Sheppey pulls in a diverse crowd with live music from a range of eclectic artists.

The Sheppey Inn menu features modern European offerings such as Somerset lamb carpaccio with beetroot and minted Greek yoghurt dressing, while a Spanish charcoal oven produces tender smoky barbecue chicken and roasted Somerset pork belly. Far eastern influences run through the ‘Asian fish and chips’ with chilli-battered haddock, triple-cooked chips, wasabi peas and Asian slaw, and a duo of duck with pak choi, chilli, chorizo and baby new potatoes.

High-vaulted barn ceilings in the The Sheppey Inn in Somerset are peppered with skylights, and a latticed outdoor terrace area looks down the tranquil River Sheppey. Craft beer nights feature alongside live music, which ranges from blues to an innovative chilled dub folk.

In a tranquil spot in Lower Godney, The Sheppey Inn is 6 miles from the centre of Wells.

    All amazing and great with my severe allergy. Fish soup was wonderful and the non-alcoholic cocktails were super for a driver

    Wonderful food, friendly service and 80’s music to entertain us! The cider and own made gin was delicious! We ate and danced the night away! I do believe we were the last to leave in the early hours of the morning! Unexpected and great fun! Thank you!

    Wonderful atmosphere, friendly and efficient staff and almost all of the food was superb! The exception was the chick pea burger, which tasted a bit beige, and lacked contrasting textures. The rest was wow! Highly recommend! The Sheppey is our favourite place to go, either for special occasions or just because we fancy eating out.

    Booking really easy. Very friendly greeting from all staff, warm greeting happy to be flexible to ensure we made the evening the way we wanted it by giving us options to have pre dinner drinks relaxing in the bar or going to our table. Made to feel relaxed and welcome. There were 3 people in our group we all had different choices from the starter and main menu. All food was excellently presented and tasted fantastic. Service was very efficient again friendly and unobtrusive. This was my 4th visit to this venue and I am already looking forward to the next. Great food, great people, great place thank you Shirley.
