stayed on business, after experiencing some disasters in Somerset this was a welcoming change. I had room 11 and experienced noise from the residents in room 12 including their bathroom however earplugs are provided and what do you expect from a building of this character. I ate in the restaurant, the steak was tasty and the cheeseboard an absolute delight,...

Really enjoyed our stay at The Crown, great location by the cathedral. The staff were all friendly and helpful, fantastic food and our room was spotless. Would like to have stayed more than one night, will definitely visit again soon

Went to this pub whilst in Wells as my boyfriend is a big hot fuzz fan. The menu looked good so we grabbed a table. We ordered fish and chips. The chips were edible but slightly undercooked which wasnt ideal and the meal came with salad which was a weird combo with fish and chips. The fish was really tasty...

Do wish you'd spoken with us while you were here. If you had said you were unhappy with chips we would have rectified that for you. We have a delicious dessert menu, which is separate from our main menu and available from the bar. Our fish and chips is £13.45, for a great size portion of a freshly prepared, cooked...

Staff were welcoming and attentive. Food was great, steak cooked perfectly and fish just fell apart. Food arrived hot and exactly as ordered particularly where both my husband and I changed a number of items it would traditionally come with.

We didn't have the best first night's sleep as I'm tall and the lovely looking cast iron bed was too small, but they bent over backwards to sort us a different room for the next 2 nights of our stay. What food we had has generous and tasty and prices are very reasonable. Range of drinks available were good and...

We visited here as a group. We took up almost the whole hotel. Jeanine, the front desk manager, went above and beyond to accommodate our needs. Jim, the breakfast person and Conner, the waiter deserve kudos, too. The food was wonderful. Some of the rooms were a bit cramped and noisy if over the pub area. Others were spacious. We...

I went to the restaurant for lunch on Monday, everything was great up until it came time to pay my bill. Where I was ignored while the girl from the reception desk and a man working in the restaurant continued to chit chat about their weekend. I was quite clearly waiting to pay my bill and I just think it...

Thank you for your review and we're pleased to hear you enjoyed your meal with us. The chap in question would like to personally apologise to you. He prides himself on great customer service and this was far from the norm. He is very sorry this was not the case on this occasion. We do hope you'll be back again...

Came here for a Sunday lunch. The meat was good quality but that's the only positive. Potatoes old and dry, boiled vegetables on the side completely bland. They have the worlds thinest knifes that cut into your hand when eating - no thanks! There's far better for your money than this place.

Thank you for your review. We're pleased to hear you enjoyed the meat of your Sunday roast. Did you speak with us whilst here concerning the potatoes - which I can assure you would not have been "old" - and the vegetables? We would have been happy to have dealt with your concerns there and then. That's quite a bold...
