Okay

I went into this small place around 5pm of a windy and rainy day in Wells and looked for some foods before driving back to Bath. There were many items on menu, but looks veggies. So, my friend ended up with salad and I ordered curry with rice. Both are okay. Nothing special to note here. Anyway... read 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

Service was good. Staff is friendly and not too slow. I had lasagne. It tasted of corned beef! My husband thought the same. It definitely had corned beef in it. There was not much sauce or juice. It was quite dry when I cut through the lasagne. The flavour is rather bland too. How good is a restaurant that mixed... More

Went here for lunch while in Wells yesterday, we were looking for somewhere to eat and this place had a good choice, nicely decorated with large real xmas tree inside, small buckets of holly on the tables and seemed very popular. We ordered pate and toast, onion and 3 cheese tart and salad and jacket potato with garlic mushrooms, 2... More
