We popped into Wells to go to the farmers market but came across Old Spot and decided to get some lunch. The food was superb and £18.50 for three course, great value to. The service was excellent and we will definitely be going there again....More

We had a great evening here, the food was delicious, salmon sashimi starters as fresh as you like, mains of monkfish and pork ribeye. Wonderful setting with views of the cathedral out the rear windows across the green. Tables nicely spaced, very attentive waiting staff....More

I have been to the Old Spot twice, both times with my mother, and we have, without exception, really excellent meals. The interior of the restaurant is attractive, warm and very inviting. Our meals were expertly prepared and presented, and tasted absolutely delicious. On one...More

We sat in the raised area at the back with a spectacular view of the cathedral. My starter was braised leeks topped with anchovies and crumbled boiled egg with a dill sauce - absolutely delicious. My wife had parmesan, rocket and Parma ham salad; very...More
