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.

    The Sheppey the Sheppey. Oh the Sheppey! We all love it. I am grateful for the vegan options and the fabulous craft beers on tap. Warm, friendly staff. Even when busy they are top on the game. Thank you and sorry.

    Great service in a lovely country pub. I had the ox cheek with truffle mash which was amazing. Great selection of ciders and a great location. Will definitely go back.

    Great experience my second visit for dinner. I like the menus being rather different to normal pub food and drink. The quality of the food is good. As you ask for every detail on this occasion I had the dahl, for me it could be more spicy bordering on bland, however, I appreciate there is no pleasing people over food and others will probably say it was perfect. I enjoyed the selection of different drinks and wines and on may next visit will probably go for a selection of tasters. Staff are really friendly and relaxed which I enjoy. Young lady explained about the wine dispenser which was interesting to us. We felt there was something strange about the taste of the draft Budvar since our last visit. Young lady was helpful making us feel comfortable about indicating our concern and in the end we just had an alternative drink. This always worries me a little as sometimes you just don't know if it is your own taste. I am looking forward to coming back again at some time probably for lunch to see the place in day light, also probably when you have live music. While people keep coming don't change it, I like what is to me the Glastonbury atmosphere, I wish it was my local pub!

    Loved our Sunday lunch here. The staff are welcoming, friendly and helpful. The food is absolutely fantastic I had pork loin and it was cooked to perfection with crackling. The pudding was a masterpiece I had the lemon dish which was gurt lush. Loved the quirky decor and atmosphere.
