Enticing combination of ales, ciders, art and music

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 Lyme Bay scallops, raisin purée, celeriac, cauliflower bhaji, sorrel oil; then follow with hickory-smoked chicken, bulgar wheat pilaf, feta, mushroom ketchup. Round a good meal off with toffee and stout cake, banana crumble, banana spring roll. In addition to three bedrooms, there's also accommodation in two cottages with Glastonbury Tor views.
