We chose the pub as it was recommended to us by a friend who lives in Wells, we wanted somewhere that we could take the dogs in with us. We were greeted and served by a cheery barman who processed our order very quickly. The food arrived promptly (always a blessing when you have kids!) and was very tasty too,...

Had a nice lunch here with friends. I had the goat cheese and onion tart which was garnished with pea shoots and walnuts, really good, followed by haddock,chips and peas. The fish was very good but could have done with fewer chips and peas. The service was very good.

Although we'd booked, a table for four, in advance, neither the bar or the bistro(t), had any record of our confirmed internet booking, which was an embarrassing start to our lunch, as we were entertaining friends. Fortunately, there was a table available in the pub area. We sampled three different roasts and all were delicious, served with plenty of well-cooked...

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights as part of my 75th Birthday celebrations. Although we live near Wells, we have never really "DONE" Wells before, and this hotel is right in the heart of Wells and within walking distance of everything you are likely to visit or need in this City (the smallest City in England). The hotel...

Thank you for such a super review. We're so pleased to hear you enjoyed Wells and your stay with us. Apologies about the jacuzzi bath. There should have been a notice up warning people about the perils of bubble bath and the jets and this will be rectified. So sorry for the inconvenience caused to you. We do hope to...

Good to have parking by the hotel. A very historical building but would loved to have known more as there is not much known apart from recent history and a bit of how it was built. I wondered why breakfast was only until 9.30 and 10 on Sunday as I would have loved a proper lie in. But as it...

We stopped by because there was a great big fire in the fireplace and it was cold. The place was packed. After a short wait, we managed to get a table near the fire just as someone left. It took a while for the table to be cleared but that gave us a chance to thaw out a bit. We...

Try Afternoon Tea at The Crown. A sheer delight at a great price. The freshest of sandwiches, delicious homemade mini scones and cakes, plus deserts. One of our party had experienced Afternoon Tea at The Ritz in London last year and said this one beat it hands down!

We ate in the bar at lunchtime today in spite of reservations about the food quality from recent trips there for lunch. The burger looks great, but it tastes and looks like cheap sausage meat. Unfortunately you then have to spend the rest of the day regurgitate/ repeating the flavour. My veg soup looked like bland puréed leftovers without any...

Sorry to read your comments and that you did not enjoy your meal with us. Please be assured the burger is not "cheap sausage meat ". It is very meaty with little fat. The soup is not made with leftovers and we apologise if it wasn't up to standard that day.
