“Friday evening Happy Hour”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

We had just popped in for a quick drink on a Friday to be told it was happy hour! What a pleasant surprise, so we had a few drinks and some complimentary food that was also been offered at the bar.
Staff very nice and a good pub with a nice atmosphere. Will visit again.

Being a bit of a geek I really wanted to stay here as I love the movie Hot Fuzz, and this place features heavily in the film - as does much of the surrounding area.
The staff are incredibly kind and welcoming and the rooms are very nice, even if they are a bit dated.
It's a listed building so it's easy to pick fault, or you can just accept and appreciate the character of the building.
The hotel happily provides info on local services, they honestly can't do enough for you and the breakfast in the morning was just out of this world.
A big thanks to them all for making my stay such a memorable one. It was a real highlight of the trip.

We arrived at The Crown at Wells and found the accommodations quite average, and the staff was perhaps over tired when we arrived. Our view of the lovely medieval street, fountain, and cobblestone street made for a romantic setting, and the bed was quite comfortable and the linens fresh and clean. the town was very quiet at night, and it was somewhat difficult to find a pub where food was being served. Our breakfast in the morning would have been better with a cheerful greeting from the server and perhaps a remark or two of some pleasant nature. Overall, this was a very convenient location as it is a very short stroll to the Cathedral at Wells, but the staff was not eager or interested to show any interest or friendliness to us,

Thank you for your trip advisor review. Sorry you found service was below par. That should not have happened and is not usual. We pride ourselves on friendly service and are disappointed to learn you felt this was not the case.
You said you had difficulty finding a pub that served food; you could've popped downstairs to the Penn Bar at The Crown.

We were invited by some very dear friends of ours to Antons for a silver wedding meal. And I wasn't disappointed. The service was amazing as there were about 26 of us so quite a big crowd. We had two large tables laid out beautifully. There was a set menu which was emailed out a few weeks in advance and all ran smoothly indeed. Not rushed but not lots of waiting either. And the food was great with lovely presentation.

Stayed here for two nights in two different rooms and were pleased with both. Location is right on the square so there will be some noise but nothing that was really bothersome; and you are close (short walk) to everything. They even had free parking behind the building! Both rooms were very clean, had good beds, and were good size. Nice bath, plenty of hot water. WiFi was a bit week in first room but good in the second. Breakfast was nice, service was friendlier the first day (different crew); desk and bar service was very good. Would stay there again.

We have been to Anton's Bistro before and my last review was not favourable. But my parents said that they had tried the restaurant again and had had a lovely meal.
So I returned with them and my husband son and his girlfriend.
2 courses £16.50 3 courses £19.50. I had potted old spotted pork with chutney followed by the Lackham farm roast sirloin of beef. The starter was fresh and tasty and different from ordinary pate. The roast beef was cooked well very tender and not over done. It came with crispy roast potatoes and a good selection of fresh vegetables. The waitress also brought extra gravy which I love! So well done Anton's this was a lovely meal and would recommend to friends.

Very busy on a Saturday lunchtime. It look a long time for the food to arrive. Unfortunately when it arrived my order was incorrect as I had asked for my burger to have one of the toppings left out. The waitress was very obliging and replaced it quite quickly, however the order was then wrong in another way. At that point I just ate it because I was starving after the long wait in the first place!
It was a decent burger, not especially out of the ordinary for the type of place.
My husbands steak sandwich was apparently really good.

Sorry for the mistake in your order; shouldn't have happened once, let alone twice. It is far from the norm. Good to hear your husband was happy with his steak sandwich.
