The Sheppey


On the Somerset Levels and only a hippy's dance away from Glastonbury, The Sheppey sits beside its eponymous river like a cider barn crossed with a private members' club. The ales and craft beers are reassuringly real - around a dozen to tease the taste buds. Cider is taken seriously too - 10 barrels sit atop the bar, so there's no danger of running out as happened in 1976 resulting in a loss of trust by the locals towards the then landlords. The modern menu offers twists on various international dishes. Start perhaps with duo of octopus (crispy and slow-cooked), chorizo, samphire, clams and spiced tomato glaze; then follow with half-roast chicken, bulgar wheat pilaf, gherkin salad with roasted mango ketchup. Round a good meal off with orange and almond polenta cake, poached kumquats with saffron and cardamom cream.
