Four of us went in for the roast lunch with potatos cooked in duck fat, Yorkshire puddings sounded lovely!!! Well, the plates where only warm, two slices of beef, difficult to cut, three halves of soggy roasted potatoes and a Yorkshire pudding that was completely deflated and not crisp at all. One dish of carrots, green beans, cauliflower and broccoli,... More

You did mention your issues concerning the vegetables, rightly so, while here and we did give you more. You seemed happy with this as you left so unsure about your subsequent review. More

Best chicken burger I've had in a long time - delicious tarragon mayonnaise! Watch out for the glasses as 2 of ours had lipstick on. Otherwise, a nice place to sit with a good choice of drinks and reasonably priced, tasty food with quick service.

Such a friendly pub, the barman Jack made us feel welcome immediately and was happy to recommend a beverage and the best toppings for my burger which had my husband drooling in envy. Fantastic place would definitely go back next time I am in Wells.

We had a nice lunch at the back of the restaurant on the relaxing terrace. I had a delicious seabass with asparagus and my husband opted for the roastbeef which was equally good. A small downside: service was a bit slow but we had a good time.

Stayed overnight here and it was a very pleasant experience. The room was clean and large and we heard no noise from outside. The staff were very helpful, professional and friendly. You are right in the centre of Wells so can walk to everything.

Ideally situated in the centre of the city alongside the Market area and close to the fabulous cathedral. Friendly and attentive service albeit a tad slow, possibly because a large party was also being catered for. The meal was good but spoiled by far too much butter. Shall visit again but other local restaurants are currently better.

Came here on my birthday as thought it would be fun to see some of the locations from the Hot Fuzz film. The venue is instantly recognisable from the outside as are many other beautiful locations nearby, such as wells cathedral.
