“Delightful little restaurant in centre of Wells”
Reviewed July 11, 2012

We stayed at the associated Crown at Wells Inn, and ate dinner here one evening. Food was excellently prepared and served, and was a very good value.

“Good early evening deals.”
Reviewed July 10, 2012

Pleasant dining room and solid menu. They offer low prices for those ordering before 7pm, but the retaurant is usually empty at that time, and it is always slightly depressing to be the only diner(s).

“Ideal for an early dinner”
Reviewed May 29, 2012

Anton's has an early dinner offer of three courses for £13.95, including a small glass of house wine (or £10.95 two courses). The food was enjoyable and well presented. Duck pate and warm mackerel salad were tasty, although the portions can be on the small side, as with the slow cooked pork belly. Yummy desserts. Despite being set in a historic building, the restaurant hasn't much atmosphere, and isn't helped by the tables being placed so close together. Although there were several empty tables further away, another couple was placed very close to us and we heard their conversation as easily as our own. The waiting staff were attentive but not always quick. . Anton's is only one of the eating venues within The Crown and staff seemed to work in these too, so weren't always available. On balance, however, good food and good value.

“Not a lot of atmosphere”
Reviewed May 23, 2012

We visited here for a roast dinner and it was Ok, but based on this visit I wouldn't rush back. It's all a little dark and just a bit tired inside.
The food was fine - thinly sliced meat with just a little gravy on the plate and some nicely cooked (still just crunchy) vegetables. For pudding I chose a traditional apple pie and custard, which again was ok. Staff were pleasant and service good - I just wouldn't rush back.

Thank you for your Trip Advisor review. We're glad to hear you found our staff "pleasant and good" and food satisfactory. Not sure which part of the building you were dining but we have just redecorated our bar area. We try to light the rooms appropriately on dull days and pride ourselves on an informal, relaxed atmosphere. Sorry to hear you will not rush back, but next time you're passing, do try us again?
