The Sheppey Inn, Lower Godney, nr Wells, Somerset

A surprise amidst the peat moors and vast open skies of the Somerset Levels. Hip and happening, the décor is pared back, eclectic and funky; painted brick walls, open rafters, mismatched furniture, with several rooms and a few more intimate areas, and there’s plenty of quirky pieces about to look at. Out the back on the riverside terrace is industrial/schoolroom chic, and you can sit there and gaze out over the fields or watch fish swim lazily by. The menu is modern European, with things like chargrilled squid, sharing platters of artisan breads, olives, charcuterie and potted crab, and their own fish stew on the starters. On the mains are some seriously tempting delights – hickory smoked chicken, bulgar wheat & feta pilaf with mushroom ketchup, oat crumbed chicken burger with pickled jalapeno, chargrilled pineapple, Mexicana cheese, chilli jam and chips, and whole barbecued sea bream with mojo de cilantro, watercress and pickled cucumber. They’re big on local brew and live music and on the whole, it’s a refreshing change from the more traditional pubs you generally find around these parts.
