We have stayed in Wells hundreds of times in the past, as we have family that live there. When we first stayed at the Sherston, a few years ago now, it was lovely, but when we stayed last winter, it was a nightmare! It is not the staff's fault, they were pleasant enough, but the noise from the toilet systems... More

I am a bit concerned as it appears that you waited for 6 months before letting us know that you had a problem & that you didn't talk to us about it at the time. However, we did have a fault with the system and this has been rectified. We have many positive comments in our visitor book upstairs about... More

The Sherston offers great home cooking in a cosy atmosphere. The staff are really polite, friendly and helpful. We were actually attending a wake for my late uncle and the buffet was outstanding. We will definitely visit again.

We chose this venue to take our elderly Aunt out for a meal, having enjoyed meals here a few years ago and we also held the wake here for my mother-in-law's funeral (July, 2010). Although my husband had booked, there was no table reserved for us and the barman casually said, "Oh, you can sit where you like." Having ordered... More

Thank you for letting me know the problems that you encountered whilst having your lunch here. Firstly I would like to point out that The Sherston has changed hands several times since you were here last. I have spoken to the Chef on duty that day and although there were 3 other tables in front of you - they had... More

We entered what seemed like a lovely big inn, and the staff seemed accomodating as they arranged a big table for us. As we were seated we were handed a menu and then a Sunday sheet. We went to order once everyone, inc. kids, had finally made up their minds, only to be told we had to order from the... More

I sincerely apologise for the problems you had with our Sunday Lunch - this is quite unusual as we have a growing reputation for the quality of our Sunday Lunches. The person who served you was new and had not taken on board that between 12- 3 we only do Sunday Roasts and our Main Menu starts at 3pm. I... More

We stopped for lunch here after a family trip around Wells. The staff were very helpful and made us very welcome. I decided to have the Salmon Supreme. When the food arrived it looked very colourful and very pleasing on the eye but something was missing, no sauce. The menu says with either white wine sauce or hollandaise sauce but... More

Hi so sorry that you missed the sauce to go with your Salmon Supreme. You should have been asked which one you prefer but if not then it should have come with 1 anyway. I shall speak to the Staff & Chefs and make sure that this is done in the future. Thank you for bringing this to my attention.... More

Been meaning to write this for a while. The wake for a family member was held at the Sherston Inn. Despite a bitterly cold day, a warm atmosphere, good food and service, with an attentive and friendly landlady, despite our personal circumstances. Heartily recommend you support this establishment.

We went in on the Bank Holiday Monday for an early evening meal. There were three adults and five kids. At first, there wasn't a table free but the manager did really well to find us a large table. The food was hot, well prepared and tasty. Two of our party loved the steak and ale pie. I must say,... More

Had been meaning to stop by the Sherston since it had been taken over and regret not going sooner. Lovely atmosphere and decor. Food was lovely and very well priced. I especially enjoyed the puddings, the chocolate torte was to die for! Going back tomorrow!
