Wishing to break a journey to Somerset from London - why would you not choose Wells.
We had lunch booked for 1pm, but traffic meant we were running late and managed to call through to advise - no issue.
Delightful lunch for three, starters a bit bigger than we anticipated, delicious though. We left a little of the starter as we knew we wanted to enjoy the main meal. We had a great main course and desserts as well - why not.
Well priced too.
Friendly service and when back, no doubt where we will chose.

Just had a lovely meal here and the food was on our tables within 10-15 minutes. Even when it got busier later on, other guests food still came out quickly.
Very nicely presented dishes with some nice little touches made the dining experience very enjoyable. Main courses were both delicious with two empty plates. Even the veg was served perfectly al denté which is hard to find.
The only thing I didn’t like was the café style salt and pepper shakers, I felt perhaps a restaurant of this quality should at least have salt and fresh black pepper grinders.

My partner said her Roulade for dessert was one of the nicest desserts she has had at a restaurant but my Blueberry Cheesecake wasn’t as great unfortunately, as it tasted quite plain (although the base was perfect and you could clearly see the blueberries in the cheesecake) but the garnishes really made us both smile. The ice cream tasted like Walls vanilla which isn’t necessarily a bad thing but I was hoping for something a bit more creamy. The chef obviously takes a lot of pride in his work. Would certainly come back of ever we come through Wells again

We visited Wells on a Saturday to go to the Market. We decided to stay for lunch and found the Courtyard Restaurant. It is tucked away a short distance from the main street. Super restaurant. Very good and pleasant service from all the staff. Very nice surroundings and nice and quiet. Super food and wine. Unfortunately we over ran on our car parking so could not stay for sweet. I was very disappointed so will definitely visit again. The omelettesbwere superb and super salads to accompany them.
