I recently visited for the afternoon tea and I was genuinely happy with what we were served. This is a rustic and traditional pub/restaurant and the afternoon tea matched the feel of the place. The cakes were home made and gorgeous, the sandwiches were lovely and very generously filled - we got ham and salmon. I think the cakes change...

Looking for a glass of beer one hot August day, we noticed a prominent sign on the door i- Dogs Welcome, not something you found in many places in England, despite the reputation of the English for being animal lovers. Inside we found a well kept glass of real ale and a welcome for our dog. We didn't eat there...

A lovely and charming hotel. We stayed for two nights and ate in Anton's on one evening. We were upgraded on arrival which was excellent and had a lovely room overlooking the square in front of the cathedral gate. A superb meal in Anton's and that would be worth going to even if you weren't staying. Staff were very friendly...

Thank you for such a wonderful review. Parking restriction on the Market Place is a nuisance but there is long stay parking at South Street, at the back of What!, which is a minutes' walk from The Crown. We're glad you found us too and look forward to seeing you again.

Looking to stay in Wells I accessed Booking.com to get some feel for the place. I was somewhat discouraged to find the second of many photographs displayed was of two burly, sun glass bedecked armed policemen! Weird if not alarming. Moreover the location is described as being 'one minute walk from the beach'! I would have happily drawn this to...

Apologies for any confusion. The 'burly policemen' you describe are in fact Simon Pegg and Nick Frost in the hugely popular film Hot Fuzz which heavily featured The Crown and the Market Place, hence the picture on our booking.com page. Many people love to stay here on that basis. We cannot find anywhere in the description as being 'one minute...

We stayed at The Crown Inn on a Friday night in July. The hotel car park is small so cars can be doubled parked and due to his we decided to park elsewhere. At the weekend cars cannot be parked overnight in the square near the Inn, due to the market on a Saturday. We had a nice four poster...

Thank you for your review and we're delighted to hear you enjoyed your stay with us at The Crown. When The Crown is busy, we do have to double park cars but happily move guests' cars for them to provide access.

Our room had a brilliant view of the market place and the cathedral, an the Crown has a very interesting history. A delicious meal in Anton's with lovely flavours, and served in the time they said (freshly cooked so of course had to wait a little as you would expect.) The staff were all very attentive and helpful and it...
