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.

    Lovely meal overall - not so sure about the corn fritters - staff very friendly - lived the non alcoholic fruit cocktail - so nice to have something other than coke when driving

    The Sheppey never fails to impress and delight! The food presentation and quality is second to none. The Team are all very friendly and professional. You just wouldn't expect to experience such a great place in the middle of no where. The place is like a tardis and the outside, although traditional and within the keeping of the surrounding buildings doesn't give it justice. To be honest i would hate for them to change the appearance of the building as it actually serves to give the customer a "surprise and delight" when they walk inside. The only thing they shouldn't have done was to remove the lamb off the menu. It is still on their website but not available anymore in the restaurant.

    We had a delicious lunch. My husband and I have been several times before but our friends were first timers. They were literally blown away with the quality of the food. We shared all the puds as we couldn't decide which ones to have. The waiter serving us was very friendly and efficient. The only slight negative was that we were charged for an extra raost which we didn't have but it was quickly sorted out once we bought it up. Many thanks. We will be back. Emma

    Booked this hotel on the basis of the TripAdvisor ratings as a stop en-route to a wedding in Bagley. When we arrived it didn't look that inviting from the outside but when we entered we were immediately made welcome. The staff were all friendly and welcoming. The food choice and quality was great. The surroundings were quirky but homely. Have already recommended it to our friends.

    From the scenic drive in, following the river sheppey to entering this quirky yet inviting inn we were sure we had made a good choice for our lunch. We most certainly were not disappointed. The staff here are very friendly and offer a great service. The menu is superb and the food is absolutely spot on. It is a little out of our way but well worth the drive and we will deffo be going back. Might try an evening next time! Thanks to all, from Caroline and Archie.
