An amazing restaurant! The friendly staff were not at all phased by the increase in numbers to what was already a sizeable group. The set price menu was excellent value. It was difficult to decide what to choose. We will certainly be returning.

Wednesday night in Wells and time to try the top rated restaurant for dinner. £10 for 2 courses is extremely good value for money. Food is good but not extra special so 4*only. My 5* are saved for the places that are just wow.

A beautiful meal at a very reasonable price. We've paid a lot more for this standard of food elsewhere. The staff are lovely and the restaurant very pleasant. We can't understand how not many people know about this great restaurant.

As mentioned above by John Howard, there would be no problem eating in the traffic free courtyard, but I would suggest a call to the restaurant on 01749 677772 to enquire whether your dog would be welcomed inside.
