We had a Sunday lunch here today. It was absolutely delicious, cooked to perfection. Nice clean restaurant. A jug of water with glasses was brought to our table without having to ask for it.The service was impeccable, we will definitely go back to try their evening !special offers" of two courses for £12.95.

We visited earlyish on a Saturday evening and, at first, it was strangely deserted which gave us a sense of foreboding. However, things soon picked up. The service was attentive and friendly and the menu varied and very reasonably priced. The meals were very tasty. Worth a visit.

The food is REALLY yummy and is quality and quantity combined! I had the roast duck and it was so delicious. The atmosphere wasn't the greatest as it was really busy and loud however despite this, they took us without a booking. I would recommend this restaurant for dinner.

A wonderful meal in this slightly quirky establishment just off the main Market Square, and although the approach is up a courtyard, it is well worth seeking out. The management were very friendly and the whole evening worked well. The rib-eye steak was absolutely to die for.

The Courtyard Restaurant is the best restaurant in Wells. The food is always superb, the staff are exceptional and the atmosphere is so relaxed and cheerful.

Visited restaurant on a Wednesday. After a wonder around the cathedral and local market on a beautiful sunny day, stopped here for an early lunch. Could not have been better, from the very friendly welcome to the wonderful food. Everything professionally presented and tasted divine. All in all a lovely experience and would definitely recommend this eatery.

Arrived in Wells last night and were really struggling to find decent veggie food (I've had enough butternut squash and sweet potatoes to last a lifetime!). We came across this restaurant quite by chance tucked away in a small courtyard. The staff were friendly and welcoming and offered several vegetarian choices. We settled for mushrooms and brie in filo pastry.... More
