Going Downhill...

My husband and I have used this cafe for over twelve years and, being pensioners, we usually go there for a hot meal, to save cooking at home. We have always been pleased with the choice of hot food and the prices thereof. Today, however, we were annoyed to find that the only hot meal - at... read more

My husband and I ate here last Sunday on a day trip to Wells. The brasserie is right beside the cathedral and town hall, and the outdoor seating was great as it was such a lovely day. My husband had the Greek salad and I had lasagne - mine was lovely, but his was gorgeous! Good portions, not too expensive... More

Great location by the Cathedral but how about staff who understand food and customer service!? It's not that difficult. Disappointed.

This is a great little coffee shop/restaurant in a superb situation right in the heart of the City of Wells. Ideally placed for tourists visiting the Cathedral and the famous Bishop's Palace, the seating outside also make the Bekynton a great place for people-watching on the two busy market days (Wednesdays and Saturdays). The staff are friendly, helpful, and fast... More

Very friendly and have been several times over the years. Cheerful and quick service and decent snacks and food (the title of the place is misleading as they don't really offer brasserie fare). They were unreasonably slated publicly by a rude and demanding vegan diner whilst I was there. One drawback - a single towel in the toilet is not... More

What a shame. A lovely location but this place sucks. Appalling service from disinterested staff. No flexibility on the menu. £3.60 for a coffee. Seriously, go elsewhere.

This is an unprepossing cafe, despite the name. I had a spagetti bolognese that was perfectly ordinary and my wife a soup with a side order of chips. Being gluten intollereant she asked not to have the bread which came with the soup of which there was no mention when it came to the bill. Worse though were the chips... More
