“Fabulous food and service”
Reviewed March 15, 2012

A little gem of a restaurant in Wells. Both the food and service are of an excellent standard.

“Nice place with good menu choices”
Reviewed March 5, 2012

Have eaten here many times over the last 12 months or so.
Menu choices have always been good and it was nice to see small changes week on week to provide some variety.
Staff have always been very pleasant also.

“Excellent bistro in the lovely town of Wells”
Reviewed February 27, 2012

Stopped off for lunch on the way home from London recently. Picked The Old Spot from Tripadvisor reviews. Certainly not disappointEd. Good prices for the lunchtime menu, a busy, buzzing place. Food was excellent and no complaints about the service. The only observation I would make is that it is not clear on the menu that chicken is free range and pork outdoor reared. We asked if the chef and ensured that that was indeed the case, as I would expect for somewhere that clearly prides itself on local, quality produce. So why not market that fact on the menu? Many more people care about such things these days.

“Good food with view to the cathedral”
Reviewed February 13, 2012

Good food. Reasonable value. Best in Wells. Service is great.
We recommend you book in advance. Ask for table 13 to secure view to the Cathedral.
