This was a surprise visit, booked by my husband for my birthday. We've been before but not for a long while as prices were always a little expensive. However I was pleasantly surprised that the prices now are not that much more than other restaurants in the area. We both chose the 7 course tasting menu and the food was perfect. Each course with its own distinct flavours, each complimenting the last. I would thoroughly recommend it. Service was good, but not as polished as I would have liked to match such high class food. Paper napkins a definite no-no! Why would you down grade such perfection with a cafe table and paper napkins? Personally I would have liked table cloths on the table and a little more thought on the plates that the first three dishes were served on could have made a difference. Had this been a lunchtime visit on the hoof, I would have been satisfied, but sadly the whole experience was missing the finishing touches that could have made a very good evening into a perfect evening.

My wife and i celebrated our anniversary at this restaurant, the staff were friendly, welcoming and helpful, the sign of a good restaurant is how busy it is and it was packed, the food was outstanding, real quality and mouth watering, reasonably priced for the quality of food, i would not hesitate to return when in the area again.

Although we hadn’t booked, (booking is recommended as it gets busy), they managed to squeeze us in. The food was delicious, well presented and plentiful. The rear of the restaurant overlooks Wells cathedral and the lawn in front of the cathedral. On the evening we visited the restaurant, it was a full moon which rose over Wells cathedral which was beautiful.
