Not knowing the area we decided to come here for lunch. The first thing that struck us was the friendliness of the staff. We were going to have a sandwich but ended up having the best lunch we have had in a long time. 2...More

Stayed at the Crown Inn which this "Bistrot" is a part of and we were not impressed by it at all really. The food was on our table before we had our drinks which is , to us, a bit disconcerting. We had ordered belly...More

We are sorry you found your meal average. Did you mention it while here and give us an opportunity to rectify it? We really welcome hearing customer feedback in person, at the time, when we can do something about it.

Popped in for lunch before tackling the cathedral. Staff were all very friendly and helpful, directing us to the Bistro for the chefs special (2 courses for £10). I went for 3 courses. Pate to start, then both had chicken with pumpkin, followed by sticky...More

Popped in on a Saturday lunchtime with the family for a light bite, it was packed inside so that's always a good sign. The food was good, not outstanding but tasty and came out of the kitchen very quickly, though slightly overpriced for what we...More

My partner and I dropped in on the off-chance on a Friday evening after trying the Fountain which was heaving. At 8pm the restaurant was very quiet but we were welcomed with a smile and served by a very pleasant and attentive waiter. The food...More

This place looks tired from the outside but it's quite nice inside if you like rustic, which we do. There are lots of tables outside if you prefer. My husband ordered the scallop and black pudding starter which consisted of one and a half scallops...More

We are sorry you felt your meal was "average". This is clearly not how we want diners to feel. We can only apologise and assure you this is far from our norm.

We are glad to hear overall you enjoyed your meal with us. Of course you should not have had to wait for the pork belly to be redone and so delay your meal together. Apologies again.

Such lovely food at very reasonable prices. It was full on the night we booked when other restaurants were completely empty. Been a few times and will be back again. Waiting staff very good. Can't fault it.

Went for the early-bird offers, which is extremely good value. Good menu and excellent service. Would like to stay at the Crown next time we are in Wells. Check it out on the film Hot Fuzz!
