“Some excellent, some not so good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

Firstly the welcome was very warm and friendly. Beers were excellent and well kept with a good choice of real ales. My wife and I ordered the specials. I had the belly pork which was very good but the crackling (the best part) appeared to have been removed. The dauphenoise potatoes served with it and the side of vegetables were excellent. My wife had the pollock but sadly this was overcooked and very dry. The crushed new potatoes were not crushed and could have done with a knob of butter to give them some moistness. Overall a very, very dry dish. She was a little disappointed. That said we would go again and give it a second chance. A nice friendly pub with reasonably priced food.

“Delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013 via mobile

Passed this pub on the way into the city and menu looked good so called back for lunch. We weren't disappointed the food was delicious, rustic homemade and very flavoursome. Pleasant surroundings and clean facilities, service prompt and friendly. Rhubarb crumble and clotted cream was divine! Quiet over lunch but this suits us anyway :-)

“Popped in for a quick pint”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

So glad we popped in on our first trip to Wells. Nice modern interior, friendly staff, 4 real ales - I tried Cheddar Ales' 'Gorge Best' which did the job. Sat in a comfortable leather chair right next to the log fire - shame we couldn't have stayed longer. Will definitely return on next visit.
