“Excellent and you did wonderful Gluten free”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2014

We were attracted by the gluten free scones and my daughter thought that it was the best gluten free (cream tea) scone ever. All scones had just come out of the oven (mmmmm).
We returned the next day for an evening meal so that my daughter could experience the gluten free fish and chips and they were apparently excellent (just like the wheat versions). We then all had lovely puddings which we all raved about - each different and each excellent. I was asked to comment on the crumble but the owner was very busy when we left, so her goes: the only thing I would ask possibly, is a little less sugar on the apples as I like them tart(ish), but then my daughter says I always like things less sweet than everyone else.

The meal was tasty, care was taken over the presentation and the service good, and all for a very good price. Lots of tasty gluten free to choose from.

“Caters to so many tastes and requirements: including gluten free!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2014

So good we returned after our first visit.

The good:
::Food is very reasonably priced (there are offers at certain times), with a great choice (especially when you're used to being very limited if you cannot have gluten). Food was more than adequate/average/run of the mill, it was as good as you pay for in more expensive establishments and was above average in all aspects. It was tasty, hot, fresh (and you could tell it was freshly cooked) with excellent portion sizes and nicely presented.

::Ian, the owner. He makes the place with his attentive service and this continued through as attention to detail.

::Expense: amazing considering the quality and size.

::Choice, choice and more choice. Everyone out of the 6 of us struggled to choose solely due everything sounding so yummy! And the GFers were so chuffed at the choice.


The bad
Now I am having to be reeeeaaally picky.

When busy you may queue for the toilet (!?) as there is one 'each'.

On our second visit an error was made with our order (the table to the right of us ordered 2 of the same meals albeit different fish) ad so we had meals all arriving at different points. Ian wasn't available at the time and as soon as he knew he was very very apologetic. We didn't feel the need to moan as it was no big deal and with hungry teens they just wanted to tuck in! Similarly, had we been the sort to moan, the way in which Ian handled the issue was lovely.

Would we return?
Without a doubt.
And possibly for every day of our holiday if we have the funds: we have eaten around Minehead as a big family and this is the only place where each person could choose a meal they truly wanted even when choosing from the 'two for' menu.

Would I recommend it?
Yes [as long as you don't expect haute cuisine] and most definitely if you need some GF options ad are tired of always having to cater to this at home!

“Great food, great atmosphere, great host!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 August 2014

We holidayed in Minehead earlier this year and having previously dined at Mullions decided to go for lunch. We ended up there on around three occasions as the food was fab. Great choice, nicely cooked, nothing too much trouble. Ian, the proprietor, was very attentive friendly, funny and chatty but not over intrusive. We had Sunday lunch there which was second to none. I have friends who visited just after us and they loved it two. They are returning in September and will definitely visit again and some more friends are going to Blue Anchor next week and I have recommended they visit Mullions too. One thing which did surprise us was that my friend is diabetic and Ian said he had diabetic Ice cream which was delicious. I would highly recommend a visit to Mullions and will definitely be visiting again ourselves next time we are down there.

“Good , not good enough.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2014

For the price we've paid it should have been better. It wasn't bad but overall average. I've had the salmon steak, nice but simply "good", nothing special. The dessert was apple crumble but not as it should be, you can better ones in a bakery.
Good menu , plenty of choice.
Sitting outside is ok but close to traffic.
