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.

    Bests sticky toffee pudding I have ever had. Loved how homely the pub was as well. And very lovely, friendly and helpful staff.

    We booked for an anniversary meal and we were so pleased when we arrived to be seated at a table overlooking the stream what a lovely setting. Service very friendly and the food was delicious. The portion size was more than enough! I love how this bar and restaurant is in a beautiful setting tucked away and the quirkiness adds to the experience. We will be visiting again.

    The Sheppey is a lovely spot in Godney, the food is brilliantly prepared, fresh and full of flavour. The staff looked after us really well - including accommodating a couple of allergies/intolerances on the table. Will definitely be back!

    I loved this quirky place from the moment we arrived! We were made instantly welcome and enjoyed every moment and morsel of out visit. The food is so fresh and vibrant and the coffee cocktail I began with certainly enhanced my experience. Well worth searching out.
