Such a vast range of milkshakes, and they will add anything and everything you fancy! Prices aren't half bad for both the quality and quantity you get.

the shakes are delicious, and such a range too, a bit on the expensive side though, but definately worth every penny!

Hi and thanks for taking time to write a review! Were very pleased that you enjoyed your milkshake and that it was "worth every penny"! We really do try our best when it comes to tingling those taste buds and on this occasion it seems like we really did! Unlike any local chain we use real Ice Cream and fresh... More

Enjoyed the rocky road shake which was reasonably priced and pretty thick which for me is a must for a milkshake.

Thank you for your kind comment Rhys! Not only are they reasonably priced and yummy, they can be even more reasonably priced if you buy one using our ShakesCard! Why not ask about our new loyalty program next time you're in. Matt More

I booked this place for hen do for my sister as the photos on their page looked really good. I paid £40 for a 'vip corner' and lots of table decorations and a bottle of prosecco. Well we got our prosecco but the decorations were cheap and scarce. They put a banner and a few balloons on a wall and... More

Hi Gemma, First off we are VERY disappointed that you were disappointed with what you got. This is not what we aim for, we always aim for happy customers and it seems that on this occasion that didn't happen. We would like to clarify first off that we charge £40 (Cost Price) for a VIP Package. This comes with 1... More

Expensive drinks with very little atmosphere. The place was empty. Went there last night and very much doubt I'd go back

Hi there David, Were very sorry to hear about you night out, but we would like to know if this review was meant for us? We have a very popular Karaoke every Friday night which finishes at 1am and our drinks prices are the cheapest in town so we are very confused as to your review! It would be great... More

Brilliant for shakes in the day and cocktails at night. In the evening if you're looking for somewhere to have a bit of a dance or just a drink this is one of the nicest places in Wells. Lovely atmosphere and friendly staff. The place is always clean and everyone seems to be having a nice time ! :)

So glad we found this little gem, milkshakes are heavenly - cannot recommend the banana and honey highly enough, it was freshly made and simply delicious. Lady making the shakes was very pleasant - all in all a first class find.
