Full of old world charm but could be quite difficult for tall people as some of the ceilings are quite low. The staff were very friendly and the rooms were clean and tidy. We had a four-poster bed, which I found a little uncomfortable as the mattress was far too soft for me personally. The food in Anton's was very... More

We wanted to dine at Anton's Bistro but unfortunately it was fully booked for lunch and so we grabbed a table in the Crown instead. The barman was friendly and we thoroughly enjoyed the food, particularly the dressed crab, which was lovely and fresh. As an added bonus our table was next to some interesting memorabilia from the film Hot... More

Have eaten here and stayed here before and found it reasonable. However, my recent visit was poor. First told that we would need to wait over an hour as the chef was changing, changed our order to a more speedy dish as advised but it still took 3/4 of a hour. If the menu claims a burger as superior then... More

Visited with friends for a late light lunch. The menu is interesting and reasonably priced and the food is tasty. The soup was delicious and the salmon sandwiches very tasty. The option to have soup and half sandwiches, whist not unique, is a very good idea. Only issue was the lack of enough waiting staff which was a shame.

For the 4th year in a row my wife and I had New Year's Day lunch at Anton's Bistro in the Crown at Wells. Probably the best meal we have had out for ages. 2 courses for £15.95 including coffee and mince pies, Christmas crackers and free bottle water is hard to beat for value and in this case quality....

Such a convenient location ,literally in the very centre of the city, a stones throw to the Cathedral and at the top of the main street. Attractive looking building with en-suite accommodation and Anton's Bistro. The dining room was nicely decorated and comfortable furnished, with very helpful and pleasant staff full marks all round for that. Before I order any... More

Stayed at the crown for the weekend for 2 nights. We stayed in room 2 which had a four poster bed but we were not impressed. The furniture is dated, but not antique dated, and grubby. The soft furnishings curtains, throws, cushions etc were cheap and needed a good clean. The carpet also needed replacing. This is a four star... More
