We had a meal here and were really pleased with the size and taste of the portions but it was fast food. We were not given enough time to relax before or during the courses. The waiters were lovely and, as said, the food was...More

Ate here with a group of friends after a Friday night out in Wells. Service was first class, attentive, friendly and we didn't have to wait long. Food was very good and prices were OK. Would recommend booking as its quite a small restaurant.
