Lovely pub with excellent food.
Lovely place, great pub with interesting menu. The room was great, clean very easy to check in etc. Very cool place. Would stay again. Only issues: 1 parking is limited / on the road. 2 We had a balcony room. This was great in the morning but it’s directly above the pub decking - not particularly private, and so you get smoke and noise until the pub shuts. Next time I wouldn’t bother with paying extra for this.

Fab venue. I give 5* to the kitchen they served up a fabulous dinner. I am still raving about it. If someone asks me for a recommendation to stay when visiting Glastonbury then it has to be The Sheppey. I'm going back when the live music starts up. This place rocks!
