Visited in December for the festive lunch menu. Good choice of starters, mains and desserts including the traditional Christmas fare. We've never been disappointed with a meal at this restaurant and it well deserves it's inclusion in the Good Food Guide in which it has featured for many years.

We were a family party of 4. We all knew this restaurant from previous visits. The atmosphere was intimate and relaxed, the service impeccable but friendly. Our food was superb. I didn't feel hurried and imagine we could have sat there all night. My only reason for not giving this 5 stars is the access to the toilet which is... More

After eating at Charlton House several times and the thatched cottage while staying at Shepton wedecided we would eat some where differently and did not want another pub meal and saw the menu while walking to Wells, so thought worth a try. The food was fine, but not exceptional. I liked my crab starter the best. It was well cooked... More

This is in the Good Food Guide as a Little Gem and that it is! Very welcoming and friendly, lovely menu - we would have been happy with any of the dishes. Well presented, tasty food all very sensibly priced for the quality. One amusing thing was the 'Blissful garlic bread' which was 2 not very generous pieces of toasted... More

4 of us were in on a busy Saturday night, we usually visit twice a year to treat Mum on special occasions. This restaurant is so welcoming, a nice snug of a bar where orders are taken and first drinks can be taken. I love the fact that the menu changes on every visit, although we search for our firm...

Having, on local recommendation, recently eaten twice here it is difficult to find anything special about the place. The bar/reception area is small and a thoroughfare to the loos; the welcome was not exactly friendly; pre meal drinks were very slow in being served,. the menu is written on boards which to see you have to be seated on the...

My partner & I visited this restaurant for a meal out with family. As a first time visit we would recommend it especially for a quiet celebration. Food was excellent as was the service. Will definitely go again.
