We met two of Dad's cousins at Anton's Bistrot for lunch. As it was a non market weekday it was quiet. There is limited parking on site but I managed to get a space as my father can't walk far. We tried the macaroni cheese...More

We were in the area camping for bank holiday weekend in August. We went to Wells for lunch and sought out this pub (part of the crown) as it was shown as a historic building. The hot fuzz movie was filed here and there is...More

Our visit for Sunday lunch was thoroughly enjoyable. Although they had somehow managed to lose the booking we had made by phone the night before, they quickly redeemed themselves by their welcoming and courteous attentions and found a table for the 7 of us. We...More

Anton's Bistrot is the name given to the pub part of The Crown at Wells. Given the supposed history of the building we didn't quite feel the age and charm. It's not been decorated to display the building's best features. It feels kinda humble and...More

Sorry to hear The Crown didn't meet your expectations nor feel special enough for you. We happen to think it's rather fab here, given the age, layout and quirky nature of The Crown but appreciate that's not to everyone's taste.

My husband and I came in to Antons for a meal following a recommendation from our host. To say we were disappointed is an understatement. I won't go into detail but the main cause for our complaint came from the slow cooked steak, it was...More

We visited this restaurant for my mum's 80th. The food was amazing. My mum had a whole sea bass which was huge and cooked perfectly and at £17 wasn't overly expensive. My sister had the duck which came with some lovely accompaniments. I had tuna...More

We went here on 13th August and my wife and I each had a 2 course meal and drinks which were served quickly and to a very good standard. There is wheelchair access which so many places do not provide. Would certainly recommend.

Excellent food in a charming setting right in the marketplace in Wells. The front room echoes a lot, especially if there is a big group, so we preferred the back room. Daughter loved the beetroot with goat cheese, son loved the squid. Many choices. Wait...More
