Just back from a weekend break in Wells, Somerset. We had decided to stay at The Crown because of its location right by the Cathedral and the Bishop's Palace. What an excellent choice, from the moment we checked in the staff were friendly and welcoming. Our room with its four poster bed and a window looking out on to the... More

Went here on a quiet midweek evening for dinner. Got a nice table and ordered starters, mains and drinks at the bar. Ordered the soup to start which took over 40 minutes (!!!) to arrive - to be fair the waiter was apologetic and said it had been taken to the wrong table but was still very frustrating considering it...

Four of us really enjoyed our evening meal at the Crown the food was excellent last Thursday evening. When the bill came they hadn't charged us for an extra bottle of wine. We mentioned this to the waitress who just said Oh right!. One of us made the comment that the restaurant could give us a discount on the extra... More

We were a party of ten on a quiet Sunday evening. We had been asked to communicate our menu preferences well in advance even how steaks were to be cooked! Our starters took 15 minutes to arrive. Our main course took well over one hour to arrive! The staff were amateur. No monitoring tables or asking if everything was OK.... More

Food and drink very tasty. Hubby had bubble and squeak with chorizo. It was nothing like what he was expecting. ... it was a pleasant surprise and was VERY tasty. Decor could be a little neater and the choice of music was not the best, it was dance music and didnt fit as "back ground" music and was too loud.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review on Trip Advisor. Great to hear you enjoyed your meal with us. Apologies for the music, should have been something a little more sedate, we shall have a word! We do try to keep the decor 'uptogether' and note your comments, thank you. More

Great food, very tasty and reasonably priced. Children's menu great value and big portioned, children were very happy. Staff were very friendly. The decor and ambience of the establishment were very pleasing and relaxing. We would definitely go back and we would highly recommend.

We visited the Crown for our wedding anniversary for 3 nights and had a lovely four poster bed room at the front of the hotel. The hotel is ideally situated for the Cathedral and the beautiful Bishops Palace. They had thought of everything including ear plugs if it got too noisy at night in the market square (we never needed... More

A good central hotel in Wells. Handy for the Cathedral and Bishops palace. The room was comfy. The parking of the car was a bit troublesome. They have too few spaces compared to their number of rooms. You had to leave your car keys in the reception so they could move the cars when necessary. The dinner and breakfast was... More

Good to hear you enjoyed your stay with us and thank you for taking the time to write a review on Trip Advisor. Sorry to hear you found the car park troublesome. We are bound by the 15th century design of the building but manage this well. We have 11 spaces to our 15 rooms. It is free to park... More

We had a very nice meal here on Saturday tea time. Nice selection of ales on. Very relaxed and touristy atmosphere. The establishment is on the market square and a minutes walk from both the Cathedral and the Bishops Palace. Would like to eat and drink here again one day.
