    Sat upstairs so atmosphere not brilliant as only another couple came up!!
    Table was a converted door - quirky (not a problem) but also a bit unstable, all others were proper tables but never offered a change!!

    Had the most delicious meal the other night. Glorious Lamb Shank that melted in the mouth. Can't recommend enough.

    A very homey atmosphere with an efficient and friendly waitstaff. They serve large portions of well-prepared food. Only my local cask ale pint seemed off.

  • ((((* 2 October 2018 by Gillian from Glastonbury

    The food was exceptional quality - the best Sunday roast we'd ever had at a restaurant, with all the vegetables cooked to perfection! Very good portion sizes, too. Quaint and comfortable setting. The only negative was that the service felt rushed, almost as though we were being pounced upon. It would also have been nice to have been given a wine list with the menu.

    Food was excellent good portion sizes. We wished we had eaten here both evenings of our stay in Wells.
