It's not often you find a restaurant that is pleasing in almost all respects. We had the duck breast and the salmon, plus dessert, beer and wine, and we came away at under 40 quid. Top value for money. Plates were hot; table was not sticky as in all too many UK establishments. In fact, best dining experience in Wells, in our opinion, and we'll be back.

The restaurant is just off Sadler street and we found the food and drink very much to our taste. There was plenty to choose from and it was very reasonable. Would visit again if in Wells

My wife and I was visiting Wells Cathedral on Wednesday 13th and decided to have lunch at The Courtyard as I had read good reviews on Tripadvisor and on entering we was rather disappointed by the rather gloomy atmosphere and lack of ambience but stayed anyway.
We shared a combination of starters...Sharing Platter £8.95 (Whitebait,Smoked Salmon, Prawns, Olives and Bread & Butter), Duck and Orange Pate, Salad and Bread & Butter £6.25, Goats Cheese Homemade Tartlet,Salad and Bread & Butter £6.25....Overall they were good but nothing exceptional. To accompany we had a glass of Merlot £4.40.
The service was attentive and friendly.

Was in Wells for a week with a visiting choir. Sometimes had a hard time finding a place that could host a sizable group of hungry singers without a reservation or a considerable wait and decided to try out the Courtyard one evening after not having luck elsewhere. Wish we had tried this place earlier in our visit, as it proved to be very good food, at a decent price, served fairly quickly and without the sense of having put them out by having to accommodate a large group at short notice. We got in at just the right time (around 6.30) as the restaurant filled up quickly. I had the roast pork medallions in a tasty cider sauce and a great sticky toffee pudding. We had a vegan in our group who found the baked nut and berry cutlet very good and very satisfying. When next I'm in Wells, I will definitely eat here again.

We had an evening meal here and could not fault it. The food was excellent and was very reasonably priced.
I would particularly recommend the warm tartlet starter and the pork medallions
