We say, “The small and friendly Shrubbery Hotel situated in the centre of Shepton Mallet. Has been providing food and drink for as long as I can recall, with a bar menu or restaurant menu to choose from. Why not pop in and say hello to Lorraine (the owner) for either lunch or dinner. We say the Friday night steak night is excellent value for money and a good atmosphere to have with the locals and guests alike in the bar.”
