    The Carriage Restaurant: Next Stop......

    by Myfanwe Written Feb 18, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Carriage Restaurant is literally an old pullman railway carriage located to the rear of the Station Inn. We decided to eat here after booking one of the rooms through the Station Inn for a night. We were not disappointed in the least. The interior of the carriage is tastefully decorated to its' former glory, it was modelled on the dining car of the iconic Royal Scotsman. The waitress was lively and bubbly and really made the evening a laugh a minute.The food here was of a very high standard indeed and really delicious. I had the Gresingham Duck for main course, it was lovely. Gareth had a really sumptuous looking steak. The Starters and Deserts were great too. Meals can also be taken in the bar area of the pub if you fancy dining in less formal surroundings. The prices are a little above average for the area but I would highly recommend a meal here for a special occasion or if you fancy giving yourselves a treat.
    Bookings are made via the Station Inn, entrance to the carriage is through the rear of the pub.

    Favorite Dish: Gresingham Duck was lovely.

    City Arms: You're in the jailhouse now

    by tvor Written Jun 1, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The City Arms is in a building that used to be the jail for the City of Wells and later, an abbatoir. Despite the rather offputting history, the bar and restaurant is quite nice. On two levels, with a sunny outdoor court, the atmosphere is comfortable and the food is very good. They use as much locally sourced food as possible and have a good range of local beers and ciders which you would expect, Somerset being cider country.

    We found the prices reasonable (though a tad expensive by Canadian standards but we try not to think about that!) We each had a steak with lots of mushrooms and onions, and a drink with a bill of about 37 pounds. Not bad for steak which is never cheap anyway. The steaks were cooked to perfection!

    The City Arms is about a five minute walk from the cathedral and market square.

    Favorite Dish: We had lovely steaks with mushrooms and onions.

    Cafe Piano: Great food at Cafe Piano

    by King_Golo Written May 14, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Cafe Piano is not only a cafe, but also a very good restaurant. We came there in the evening and were the first guests, but it filled quickly and by the end of our meal every table was occupied and several potential guests had to leave hungry...
    The food is very good. My wife had pork loins in cider and cream sauce, I enjoyed tagliatelle with chicken and smoked bacon. A giant chocolate fudge cake was my dessert, and it was very tasty as well.

    Favorite Dish: see above

    The King's Head: Very old pub

    by leics Updated Nov 1, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a proper pub.

    It's much larger than it looks: the building stretches back a long way.

    There's a small front 'parlour' with a roaring fire, then the bar, then a long room with nooks and crannies and wooden furniture, and finally a small enclosed yard-with-tables for the smokers. There are even heaters in that yard...and customers have control of them!

    It is a lovely building as well, with (I suspect) its origins in the 14/1500s.

    The beer was excellent, with a good range of guest real ales (see photos). Bar staff were young, enthusiastic and very friendly indeed: the pub is clearly popular with locals as well as visitors, and has regular events....a weekly quiz night, karaoke, gigs etc (Chris Jagger [Mick's brother] was on when I visited).

    Although I'm by no means young I felt very comfortable indeed; it's not an exclusively yoiung person's pub at all.

    I ate there twice. The first meal (cottage pie) was really good: basic, home-cooked filling food for a cold night. The second meal wasn't so good....I enjoyed the chips but the garlic pork escalope just didn't taste right.

    It's definitely somewhere worth a visit though, if only for the good range of well-kept real ales.

    A snug and friendly place to while away a chilly evening.

    City Arms: Good pub in Wells

    by trvlrtom Written Jul 18, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We stopped here for dinner one night during our stay in Wells and were very happy. There are several rooms indoors, but since it was sunny out we went up to the outdoor deck and enjoyed a few beers and a light meal. The soup was especially good.

    Fountain Inn & Boxer's Restaurant: Pleasant Pub in Wells

    by trvlrtom Written Jul 18, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Fountain Inn is a pleasant pub and restaurant close to the centre of Wells. We walked here one night to have dinner and were happy with what we ordered, but were too full for desert. So the next night we returned to try the deserts - it was worth the return trip.

    Both nights the service was friendly and helpful. They made us feel at home, even though we were obviously just traveling through.

    RUGANTINO RESTAURANT: The Ancient Gate House culinarium

    by iris2002 Written May 25, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Ancient Gate House Hotel has a unique atmosphere created by a beautiful historic setting and welcoming ambience. This is complemented by our award-winning Rugantino Restaurant specialising in authentic Italian cuisine prepared by our Italian kitchen staff.

    With its friendly staff and warm, cosy surroundings, the Rugantino Restaurant provides the ideal setting for that special meal. The restaurant also prepares traditional English table d'hôte menus which can be enhanced by a choice of wines, spirits and beers available from the bar. A 2-course lunch is available from £8.50, with a special 3 course Sunday lunch served at just £11.50 per person. In the evening, try our 3-course dinner from £18.90 or our traditional Italian à la carte menu. We could say a lot more about our wonderful food on this page, but we think our delicious menu will speak for itself.

    Favorite Dish: Penne Arrabiata!!!!!

    and for meat lovers > scaloppini Milanese - pork, not the traditional veal - is simply served with salad and a piece of lemon. perfetto

    Rugantino Opening times:
    Monday - Sunday
    Lunch 12pm-2pm
    Dinner 7pm-10pm

    West Cornwall Pasty Company: Cornish pasties

    by Sjalen Written Mar 5, 2006

    This company was new to us but we have since seen it in London too. Pasties are one of the things we miss most about not living in England anymore where every baker has specialities. This one turned out to specialise in pasties only and what a treat! They are fresh and huge and mmmm...:)))

    Favorite Dish: Steak and stilton or cheese and onion.

    Bishop's Palace Restaurant: Delightful meal outside on a delightful day

    by KittyLou Written Nov 20, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We had a wonderful meal outside. On a less stellar day the inside tables would be nice also. Trying to remember exactly what I ordered -- the curse of not writing this VT tip sooner. I remember it all tasted so good.

    Favorite Dish: The soup -- I think it was a puree of watercress.

    Wookey Hole Inn: Don't skip the starter

    by tomruth78 Written Apr 17, 2004

    If you have a car whilst here, try and take a visit to this restaurant. It has to be booked well in advance as it is very popular. Perhaps it has something to do with the menu. This is my second favourite restaurant after Square in Prague. The food is delicious and the venue, well it is something out of this world. It has it's own style and ambience, not seen anywhere else. The genuine 60's furniture has to be seen to be believed. Make sure you try all three courses, you wont be dissappointed.

    It even has accomodation above for those who might want to enjoy the charm of the place.

    Favorite Dish: The antipastos are amazing, I love the vegetarian one. Yum.
