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.

    We had a delicious meal, fantastic service. Good value. Such a fun, quirky setting and a funky atmosphere. Especially enjoyed the Avocado Ice-cream.

    Hi my first time there with my work team. Didn't know where to get in as the Entrance had a strange plastic bottle over it, think was being used as a self closure device. Would have helped if it had ENTRANCE marked up. on the door . Parking also quite tight on the road outside.
    On entering knew about the booking and had the table ready. Offered drinks quite quickly but getting them was very slow (approx 20 mins) and one was forgotten out of a group of six. Following that the service was really slow and once we had ordered our meals it took 45 minutes to get the food. We arrived some at 12;30 and 2 at 12:40 got our meals at 13:45.
    The place was very interesting and very quirky and menu very quirky as well. Once we got the food it was very good. I would recommend if you had plenty of time.

    Food and staff were really excellent. Had wondered whether we’d made a mistake when we first saw the place so don’t be put off by its look!

    Friendly, quick service, the food was fresh and cooked well! The sheppey is hard to find- the directions on the website help.

    This is a hidden gem of a restaurant. It is quirky but with an excellent menu. The service is attentive and friendly. We have been twice now and both visits have been excellent. On our second visit there was live music which was fun but for those who enjoy a quieter dining experience this would not be suitable.
