Popped in while visiting Bath. Packed at lunch time which is a good sign. Didn't notice a TV which is another good sign. Good range of beers - had the Doombar which was good. Daughters happy with cider and an Italian lager. Prices seemed very fair particularly given that Bath is such a popular place for visits. Staff friendly and... More

Stumbled on this whilst walking round Bath the lamb shank was excellent with plenty of vegetables to go with it would eat there again as menu seemed varied with plenty of choice

First visit to this quaint and slighly quirky pub. Quiet when we visited. Friendly and very attentive staff (although she was the only member front of house), excellently cooked food (wide choice) at very reasonable prices, served promptly. Slight issue over the drinks which she resolved graciously and generously. Excellent customer service.

Visited Bath with English friends. We looked for a place for lunch and came upon Sam Wellers by chance. We were delighted! It's everything an English pub should be: attractive quirky interior, friendly staff, good food at reasonable prices. We feasted on jacket potatoes, which were a meal and a half and delicious. The other diners were having a good... More

Was raining, so we thought we would find a pub and have some lunch. This very nice cosy pub fitted the bill. It is a little darker than your average pub, but no problem. The food was good and reasonable priced. I must say that the faggots we had were the best we had ever had in a pub. The... More

Nearly walk straight past this place as there weren't many people inside but looked at the small but adequate menu and took a punt. A very nice place with good wholesome grub at a reasonable price. Well worth a visit for real ale and nice food.

Went here for a bite to eat on a Sunday afternoon. The pub is very dark, the bar staff that day were miserable and rude, though fortunately the food was nice. Because of the female member of staffs bad attitude we won't go there again.

Thank mona75_11
