“Good sandwiches but not made to order”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012 via mobile

The sandwiches here are lovely but my main concern is the fact sandwiches are already made up for people with allergies or wanting different fillings this could pose a problem as although I believe they might be able to make things to order clearly for a plain beef sandwich this isn't possible and you'd have to get one with salad.

May we thank you for visiting the Picnic Hut In Lovely Wells, in answer to your question if we have it we can make it, just ask. If you don't like salad you don't have to have it, we have to have our popular lines made up in the fridge for people that cannot wait, as we get extremely busy during the season. I do hope you will visit again and be assured we will make up your sandwich exactly to your requirements.

“Top place for crab sandwiches and ice cream”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2012 via mobile

Great place to stop and buy your picnic for the beach. The crab sandwiches are particularly good.

The sandwiches are already prepared in the fridge so I do wonder if they would make a fresh one if what you wanted had run out. I guess there's an easy way to find out.

The local ice cream is an absolute treat, probably the best I tasted during my stay in Wells.
