Very attentive and friendly staff. The food was absolutely delicious, I had the blade of beef which was cooked to perfection and my husband had the sirloin steak which was also cooked as requested and was also delicious. The restaurant is separated into two rooms,...More

This was my first visit to the Crown and I wasn't disappointed. I was initially attracted because it is dog friendly and I had Jack, my springer with me. Good friendly service and reasonable value. I had the Tai green curry which was delicious. I...More

Nice place, nice wait staff, clean, prompt service. Inside the Crown, of the Simon Peggy /Nick Frost movie fame -"Hot Fuzz". Pictures on the wall and the sort. Good food, good beer. Not the typical english pub atmosphere, but still enjoyable. Definitely worth a visit.

After arriving in Wells for our weeks break we came here. It was bank holiday Monday and I was with my wife. The man on reception was most unhelpful to us on our arrival. When he proceeded to be as rude to his staff too...More

We were very busy bank holiday. Busy, not rude. Not sure what warrants you 'reviewing' Anton's when you didn't dine with us.

While the ambience and service was good, the food was but average. My soup tasted good and plentiful, but had unknown additives. The allegedly Gourmet Burger was anything but, the meat was dry and heavy, the bun dry and it contained a cold piece of...More

Spur of the moment visit but able to be seated without a wait. It was busy but not packed. The steak was beautiful, tender and tasty and the mackerel was also very good. Friendly staff, who didn't rush us. Would recommend
