I popped in for a pint and felt immediately at home and comfortable. Great to view the Hot Fuzz memorabilia as this is where scenes of the film were filmed. Nice staff , slightly pricey but would recommend it, either for a quick pint, family social of meal. I didn't try the Bistro so can't comment on that!

We stayed for a week at this lovely old coaching inn, located in a wonderful location in the centre of Wells. The staff could not have been more helpful or kind. The room was very old, but we expected that, but everything was provided and the room cleaned beautifully. We ate two or three times in the restaurant and had... More

As already said by other reviewers, old place and therefore accommodation judged accordingly. Fantastic location. Enjoyed my stay here; the room for me was perfect. If you are on the large side, fitting in the shower/toilet might be a challenge! No problem with noise on the Friday night either. All the staff were helpful and polite from reception to house...

After checking an incorrect bill on ordering, food arrived quickly. Generous but carelessly cut roast beef, meagre vegetables and soggy roast potatoes and burnt Yorkshire pudding. Meal not that warm either,a fact noted by another customer in our hearing. A let down given the location and reputation of the pub (yes it's a pub not a bistro, with or without... More

Thank you for your trip advisor review. We are sorry you were a bit disappointed. You're right, you were in the bar, therefore it feeling more like a pub than bistrot (we have a bistro within the building too) and why you paid when ordering. We are sorry for the mistake of your bill and that your meal wasn't our... More

We ate in Anton's Bistro on a Saturday night and was not disappointment. The food was lovely and not over priced. My steak was cooked to perfection. The atmosphere was calm and relaxed. We left very happy and will defiantly be back!

I visited the Crown on a Friday Lunchtime in August. I wanted a Ploghmans Lunch and a pint of cider and this was the only pub on Wells that I could find to offer one. It is a lovely old building and is clean and well kept I was impressed by the friendliness of the staff and by the welcome... More

What an amazing find. We stayed here for one night on a tour of the area and wished we could have stayed longer. It's location couldn't be better. From the moment we arrived, we were given such a warm welcome. The staff were lovely and went out of their way to help us. We had booked a standard room and... More

You can't fault the location of The Crown, just outside the abbey and with an outdoor seating area, with views towards the bishops palace. It was nice that the outdoor seating area had separate seating for smoking and non smoking, it's just a shame that some of the customers ignored this. You have to go to the bar to order... More
