Whilst staying at the White Hart Inn opposite this restaurant we had an afternoon drink in their garden looking out at the West face of Wells Cathedral and wondered if the food would be as good as the location. (I am sure most people, like us, have been seduced by the best-located restaurant in town only to be massively disappointed with the goods.) As I sat down, a sour-faced customer remarked to me that I would have an 'incredibly long wait for food, and it was not that good when it arrived'. We weren't planning to eat then, but since it was a Sunday we returned later for dinner and thought we would take the risk. We sat out with a drink and olives before coming in for our meal. We both chose pasta and I have to say the linguine carbonara is the finest I have tasted. It was clearly freshly cooked and not microwave-blasted.
The decor was cosy, yet elegant (and I particulary liked the grey furniture which another reviewer dispised - hey, it takes all sorts).
The service was excellent - prompt and professional. When we received the bill an 'optional 10% service' was added. We were more than happy to pay this, but were particularly impressed when the waiter asked if we had enjoyed our meal and 'which price would we prefer to pay'. I am very happy to recommend this restaurant.
