We enjoyed a well prepared lunch at Anton's Bistrot. Chicken satay appetizer, soup, desserts delectable. What they don't know is how to make a good burger. Meat was overworked, so dry and tough. More like a meatloaf, and not a good one at that. Perhaps...More

The title of your review is a touch unfair and dramatic we feel. Our beef burgers have a high meat content and so very little fat which makes it a dense burger. It's one of our most popular dishes and sorry it was not to...More

The inn dates from around 1450. Although The Crown at Wells still is a hotel, it also houses Anton’s Bistrot. Our service was very good and the generous portions were delicious. They also have outside seating in a court yard. It was just a nice...More

We visited twice while visiting Wells at the end of May. I was dubious at first as it looked like an obvious tourist trap being a stone's throw from the cathedral - how wrong I was. We had a sharing platter and a couple of...More
