Went on a Saturday evening with a bunch of people and then on a Saturday lunchtime. They excelled themselves with the service on the SAturday evening, not quite so much during the day though.. Previously it had been extremely long winded, It had taken thrree hours to order and eat a meal.
On these two occasions the food quality was better, although Sea Bass on creamed rice is a bit over rated as a meal. On the Saturday evening I had slow cooked pork and that was delicious.

One of the best meals I have had. The pub/restaurant isn't fancy, but the staff are very friendly and helpful, and there is a pleasant atmosphere. All of the standard pub meals are available plus about 8 specials if you want to spend a bit more. The double cooked beef with bourguignon sauce was very very good. We all enjoyed each course and will certainly visit the place again.

Menu was great, delicious cod loin and lovely pesto and tomato salad.
However, my lasting memory is the 'panko mozarella' on top of my risotto actually being cheese wrapped in heavy beer batter and deep fried, rather than the delicate japanese Panko breadcrumbs i was promised! i left unable to move!

We popped in early evening on a Sunday and, although we were a little early, were greeted warmly and given a menu to browse with a drink. We were made to feel very welcome, and the food was really good. it looks like they have a very good wine selection, so if this appeals to you it may be worth a visit.

After leaving Shepton Mallet a year ago, we still had many friends and family still in the area. Pew decided to have afternoon tea at the Thatched Cottage. The staff could not have been more helpful. Afternoon tea was well presented and just good food. The sandwiches were like they used to be, good and basic. Lovely. Will go again
