Had lunch here recently on a Monday. Seduced by stunning building, perfect location and nice-sounding menu outside. We found a table easily. We waited. My companion went to bar and got two menus. We decided to share a platter. We waited. My companion went back to bar to order. Pleasant young man appeared with our water. We waited some more.... More

We were in need of a late lunch on a Sunday afternoon so we found this very traditional pub very near to Wells Cathedral. The interior is basic and when we arrived it was very quiet which enabled us to be served straight away. When the food arrived it was freshly cooked and tasty although it could have been hotter....

We ate in Anton's Bistrot one busy Friday evening. It isn't really a bistro and I would agree with other reviews that this is most certainly a pub! However they do provide good food. It is freshly prepared using good quality ingredients and it is well presented. In the restaurant we found most of the staff very helpful apart from... More

Apart from the most repeated fact that this hotel was used in the film Hot Fuzz I can truthfully say that this inn has more history coming out its pores than any other hotel we have stayed in for quite a while.Fabulous staff,super food,beer and location,what more could you ask for? I booked The Crown for 2 nights as it... More

Ah, we'd forgive you of more than taking your keys home with you following a super review like yours, thank you! Good to hear you received a deserved 'round of applause for your parking skills (we're happy to move cars for folk as we appreciate it can be a bit of a swine to manoeuvre). Come again, won't you?

We have stayed at the crown twice before and always liked it so on returning to Wells last weekend we stayed for a third time. We stayed for two nights in a fab room (number 1), we ate in Anotn's Bistro at the hotel and we were perfectly well looked after (and our 18 month old daughter). Great food, a... More

A large group of us (including 3 kids under 5) had dinner here recently and despite eating early, the pub was busy. I can see why - excellent quality food using local ingredients and HUGE portions. We all had burgers and they were massive - most of us didn't finish them so I can't comment on desserts which looked great.... More

Thank you for your review. Great to hear you enjoyed your meal with us and left suitably stuffed! Sorry you found the courtyard to be lacking in sun: there's usually the option of both sun and shade. More

Went to Wells for a day done the various sights, decided late in the afternoon to have a little drink and maybe an early dinner, pleased about the drink and pleased that my company and I was not that hungry, the kitchen had 5 orders up on the board and who ever the man was he come out of the...

Thank you for your review. A little confused as to your comments. We are both a pub and restaurant. On occasion the kitchen will be busy; diners may be sat in the bar where it is relatively quiet while the bistrot is busy and vice versa. This can understandably be perplexing to diners who are in the quieter area. Sorry... More

Lovely looking place with the added appeal of the location of hot fuzz. However after ordering it went down hill. We were a party of seven and two of our dishes came first, and then the other four came half an hour later. One of our party decided he wanted a refund after. I had my meal first so I... More

We are sorry to hear of your disappointment. It would seem there was a breakdown in communication. Your party was told there would be a wait for food and that, as orders had been placed separately, the dishes may not come together. The kitchen should have been told that your orders should have come together, where possible, to try and... More
