A very nice place, the clientele are mainly 30-40 something’s, the staff are friendly and the food is very good. The main bar and the restaurant are on the first floor accessed by a very steep staircase making this a very impractical place for wheelchair users. There is a downstairs bar but it is very rarely open, I have been here on numerous occasions but I think I have only seen it open once. There is also a small shady garden which is quite nice in summer.

This is actually a hotel but I can't comment on the accommodation as I have never seen the rooms. It also has what looks like an impressive restaurant but as I have never eaten here I do not feel qualified to comment on that either.
However, I have popped in for a drink with friends from time to time and it is a very nice and comfortable bar. It has a clean, modern decor and cheerful friendly staff.
The sort of place I like for a quiet relaxed drink with friends!

A nice pub with a varied clientele, friendly and cheerful staff and a good atmosphere. This was my favourite place for watching sports, before I was allowed to have Sky Sports indoors, as they have a few plasma screens as well as a big screen projector. That said you don't have to be a sports fan to enjoy a drink here.

A traditional pub with a friendly atmosphere. The pub is tucked away up a side street, off of the High Street. The small garden exits into a small but attractive piece of parkland with a children’s play area. There is a selection of very good real ales available here.
This place gets mixed reviews on various websites, personally I think it's a great pub for a drink (a real pub atmosphere), but I would not plan to eat here.

A nice little pub with good beers and a good atmosphere. It gets very busy in summertime but don't worry about overcrowding as everyone takes their drinks outside.
I have spent some very nice evenings here!

Fun and friendly chain bar/restaurant with a slightly exotic feel (for T.Wells anyway!). I had some excellent vegetarian fajitas here, though I do remember sending back some cheesecake once - it was still frozen!
Dress Code: Informal but not shabby.
