Had a brilliant night here! Lovely food! I heard a woman complain her steak took too long to cook..."you had a WELLDONE steak!!" These guys cooked my steak to perfection! The waiting staff were extremely efficient and friendly always seemed to smile! The bar had a wide selection of drinks and the bar worked quickly! Top class will visit again...

A very nice and enjoyable visit in the sunshine of late march. We were looking forward to a ploughmans all day and wasnt disappointed when it was served. Very friendly staff and does get busy but thats the sign of a good restaurant. Just one minor quibble is that we were sat in the corner by the toilets and the...

It's been a long time since we visited this establishment for food, but it was well worth the wait. A charming restaurant, with a lovely ambience, very popular with tourists due to its age. Our food was amazing, very fresh and tasty, beautifully presented. The staff were very friendly, and quietly observed the diners without being intrusive. Dogs welcome too....

Arrived on Friday afternoon, The Crown was ideally situated in the market place. Had a drink and lunch in the bar as we had arrived early and our room wasn't quite ready. Obviously a popular bar, but we were served quickly and food good. Our room was big and comfy, very clean with all the usual amenities. We ate in...

High praise for this Hotel, Staff very welcoming, accomodation lovely and meal at the Bistro excellent. Right in the centre of the City with free parking, a couple of minutes from the Cathedral and Bishops Palace (well worth a visit). Four- Poster bedroom very comfortable with tea/coffee making facility and good sized shower/toilet.Highly recommend.

Located in the square adjacent to the cathedral the olde worlde inn is ideally situated to cater for tourists wishing to experience great British hospitality in a traditional setting.

Stayed for 2 nights at Swan Hotel and called into the Crown Pub for a drink and looked at food and ended up staying all night. On a Friday 5 to 6 is Happy Hour and free nibbles and very cheap beer watching Rugby could not fault Ploughmans and Ham egg and chips very good for price

My wife and I visited Antons as an afterthought when we couldn't get a table at a new place, we were greeted with friendly staff, good service and a good choice of menu to which we both enjoyed very much. Great food perfectly cooked, hats off to the chef and staff and will be calling in again.

Beautiful building, staff welcoming and hospitable, meal was excellent and well worth the cost, pet friendly, and if you book to stay in their hotel, pets are allowed also.The hotel is right next to Wells cathedral, this town is lovely with some modern shops, but at the same time quaint.
