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.

    Fab food, delicious posh gin and tonics. My favourite place to eat

    Booking on line very simple, quirky decor, good service, great staff. Food ok, nothing special but way over the top expensive, I had steak with pepper sauce, £25 no veg not even a mushroom or side salad, partner had sea bass which came with only a few florets of roasted cauliflower £18. A real shame as we live near and came on recommendation. £75 without even a bottle of wine for 2 courses of mediocre food. Loads of places nearby serving better food for far more reasonable prices. I have been in catering for over 30 years, dont mind paying good money for good food but would not return to this one.

    Whilst the location promises much the whole experience left us feeling extremely disappointed. From getting the order wrong, which meant our mains arriving in 2 goes, to the food being of surprisingly poor quality The steak was lukewarm, the fennel curry was so bad it led us to question whether they had served us the right dish! The waiter did well in offering us compensation but I'm afraid that is as far as the praise goes!

    We had a really enjoyable evening at the Sheppey. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the food never disappoints. There is a good selection of drinks to suit all tastes.
    There is always a great atmosphere.

    The Sheppy Inn is a place where you are instantly comfortable as soon as you enter the bar, the choice of drinks is mind boggling but great to try something different, food wise I went for the ale battered fish & chips this time, it came very well presented and the taste matched that expectation, crispy batter, chunky cod and lovely chips!
    My only criticism would be table seating position, I was a table of 3 and placed next to a large group, as other tables filled up were are all bunched close together therefore I became uncomfortable and found it hard to hear the person across or even alongside me. I understand on a busy evening this is the norm but on a weekday evening I felt they should spread the covers over the two dining areas rather than all of the diners within the vaulted ceiling area.

    Great vibrant place, very welcoming bar and waiting staff. High quality food and a fine selection of drinks, a little on the pricey side, but a good dining experience and a bit different than most pubs.

    Had a fab meal and although some folk came and sat next to us with 3 smelly dogs they did move away when we politely told them. Staff always very attentive and great wine.

    Expectations were high based on the reviews online, but they were not only met, but, last night, they were exceeded.

    From the initial reception, to the sublime gin, to the truly excellent food - fish stew/lamb mains - to the outstanding service and very reasonable final bill, the whole 'Sheppey' experience was exemplary ...
