We went for lunch in Wells but were really disappointed with the Crown Inn. Cold poor quality food that took too long, meals didnt arrive together and we were not given cultlery. Found staff unwelcoming and had a job to acknowledge us. Would of been nice to of had a "hello" when we approached the bar and to be told... More

Lovely old pub in the old part of Wells round the back of the cathedral. It also featured as a film set in "Hot Fuzz" as the local pub. I had a Brie and cranberry baguette which came with chops and salad and my husband had the burger which was huge! Both very tasty and served good beer too.

Had the traditional roast beef and Yorkshire pud Sunday lunch. Nice veg selection and crispy roast potatoes. Good horseradish sauce too. Service OK. Pudding menu a bit disappointing. In November you want a nice steamed pudding and custard, not cold desserts and ice cream - we went without and had cake in another café later on. Photos from the Hot... More

Six of us went to Anton's Bistrot on Thursday evening. We ordered our meals and enjoyed good food and service. One of the meals was not quite up to scratch and we reported this to the young man waiting on our table. We were so impressed by the efficient, friendly and pleasant manner with which he dealt with the problem... More

Nice room overlooking the market square. Very swish bathroom, comfortable bed room ( the beds were a bit too soft - I rolled of bed one night!) helpful friendly staff, excellent breakfast. Stayed before, would stay again. Fantastic location.

It was a most uncomfortable stay at four star prices. At well over £100 a night one does not expect cold fried breakfasts with a 35 minute wait. This was caused by the manager allowing lots of non staying guests to take precedence over the few people staying there to wander in for breakfast whilst the small group of us... More

No surprise to see your 'review' here. When you were shouting at our receptionist when leaving you said you were going to leave us a bad Trip Advisor review. As you know, breakfast is included in the rate and was deducted for both the days you stayed with us, in spite of you pushing for a larger discount. When you... More

Stayed at the Crown for three days mid-week. In the heart of a buzzing Wells city, close to the Cathedral, shops and restaurants. Wednesdays and Saturdays the square in front of the hotel is turned into a market. We were warned when checking in that it would be noisy in the early morning but the guys who set up the... More

All the staff are friendly and helpfu.The food is variable- however the ploughmans pub meal was amazing. It is in spitting distance of the cathedral and local shops and restaurants which were all very good.The plumbing is rather quirky, the soft furnishings are in need of replacement and the parking is not easy- worth considering parking in the car park...
