“One of the newer Wetherspoons”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2014

As soon as you enter it's obvious that the decor is much more modern than Wetherspoons of an earlier period
Everything about it is really attractive and the staff are really on the ball!
I think what also sets it aside from others is the really attractive outside eating area with tables built into massive drain pipes. There are also hanging basket chairs that are quite novel.
The food is of the usual standard with all the usual offers, if in Wells I would advise a visit.

As you would expect from a Wetherspoons pub, there was a great choice of food and drink at amazing prices, brought to the table quickly! Very nice indeed.

“Busy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2014

As usual this pub is of a nice standard from Weatherspoons. It is quite big with lots of nice new seating outside and in. The staff were ok, not great, I have seen better. The food was nice and priced at the usual Weatherspoons price.

“Another Good Wetherspoons”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2014

Went here for lunch with the family. Despite various moans and groans from the shopkeepers and pub owners in Wells about Wetherspoons ruining trade on the high street, I have been looking forward to a Wetherspoons opening for years (by the way, the high street in Wells is already ruined with a multitude of coffee shops, mobile phone stores, and charity/cheap shops).
This place is exactly what you expect from this pub chain; good cheap pub food in a nice clean environment. If you want home-cooked or cordon-bleu meals then go to one of the other pubs in the city, but if you like what Wetherspoons offer then you wont be disappointed here.

“Rude staff member, otherwise would have been lovely.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 May 2014

All of the staff were really friendly, aside from one called Tim, he took my order and then got in a strop when my friend ordered the same drink - despite us needing to pay separately, he said 'oh could have ordered together' and then huffed several times. He then said, while making the drinks 'go home' in an exasperated manor supposedly under his breath but loud enough for both of us to hear. All up until this point was lovely - the food and the actual place were really good, its a shame that one staff member can ruin an otherwise faultless evening.
I must say that aesthetically this is the nicest whetherspoons I have ever been to, I feel that despite it being late (after 10pm) the staff should still be welcoming and friendly right up until the establishment closes. I dont feel that this is too much to expect.
