We had a nice lunch at the back of the restaurant on the relaxing terrace. I had a delicious seabass with asparagus and my husband opted for the roastbeef which was equally good. A small downside: service was a bit slow but we had a good time.

So pleased to hear you enjoyed your meal with us. Apologies you felt service was a bit slow. Can only assume it must have been a busy day.

Stayed overnight here and it was a very pleasant experience. The room was clean and large and we heard no noise from outside. The staff were very helpful, professional and friendly. You are right in the centre of Wells so can walk to everything.

Ideally situated in the centre of the city alongside the Market area and close to the fabulous cathedral. Friendly and attentive service albeit a tad slow, possibly because a large party was also being catered for. The meal was good but spoiled by far too much butter. Shall visit again but other local restaurants are currently better.

The venue is instantly recognisable from the outside as are many other beautiful locations nearby, such as wells cathedral.

Just had a ploughman's lunch and my partner a sandwich. Ploughman's was not presented particularly well and didn't seem a lot for the money, 1/2 pickled onion,bread bit dry round the edges (£10). Again the sandwich was ok but again not worth the money to be honest in my opinion (£7) just normal plain white bread with cheese & tomatoes.

The hotel is fantastically placed in the heart of Wells so a stone's throw from the Cathedral and everything else you would like to explore. Just be aware that there is a private car park but it is round the back of the hotel and you might have to drive through the market if you arrive on a Saturday (which...

Me and my partner went to The Crown as it was Hot Fuzz filming location. Found the hotel easy and when we arrived there was an amazingly awesome picture of Simon Pegg, Nick Frost and Edgar Wright above the reception desk. The manager was wonderful, we booked the hotel on booking.com and could only get a twin room, she offered...

And thank you for such an amazing review. Hot Fuzz fans always very welcome. Please keep an eye on our what's on as 2017 sees the 10th anniversary of the release of the film and they'll be special things going on in Wells to commemorate this. See you before too long. Yarp?

We Googled Wells for a place to have Sunday lunch, and my wife chose this; well done that woman! We both had the crayfish and asparagus salad with aioli which was different and very nice, then my wife had pork belly and I had roast beef.
