Recommended Places to Eat

Just a few examples, as there are numerous pubs/restaurants/cafes in and around Wells

Village Inns

Wookey Hole Inn:  

They use only the freshest locally-sourced produce, so their menu changes daily to suit the seasons and market, and there's always some great vegetarian dishes with the finest quality fish from British shores and beyond. Ever-changing blackboard specials also feature on a daily basis.  Slightly quirky decor, lovely beer garden, superb Sunday Lunch.  BA5 1BP 1.5 miles

The Westbury Inn

Andy and his team are always in the kitchen producing the classic dishes that he has become so well known for including chicken liver pate, half roast duck, racks of lamb as well as sourcing and creating new ideas from locally sourced fish and steaks.  Newly refurbished, tasteful with lovely beer garden. Fabulous Sunday Lunches.  BA5 1HA 1 mile

The Ring O Bells, Wookey

Lovely village pub in Wookey (not to be confused with Wookey Hole)  Refurbished to a high standard - relaxed, buzzing pub atmosphere, serving good food in generous portions.  Fabulous Sunday lunch served all day.  Public footpath opposite Beaconsfield Farm leading directly to Wookey  BA5 1JZ 1 mile

The Queen Victoria Inn

Rustic village Inn, in Priddy. Open fires in the winter, and lots of outside seating for summer. Flag stone floors and rustic 

charm.  Popular with locals. Good pub grub. Lovely scenic drive from Beaconsfield Farm to Priddy - worth the trip.  BA5 3BA  3 miles

The Sheppey Inn, Godney

Quirky, eccentric, eclectic pub in Godney on the Somerset Levels (5 miles)  Well worth a visit.  Its exterior gives no hint of the wonders within – part cider house, part cool hotel. Low beamed ceilings in the bar, high white walls in the barn.  Home to the famous Sheppey Soul Shack.  Drive across the moors for a scenic delight, or quicker via the main road.  BA5 1RZ  5 miles

Restaurants in Wells

Rugantinos in the Ancient Gate House has been serving the best Italian cuisine at  since 1974. The perfect dining experience for a special occasion or perfect for an informal lunch. Rugantino’s is a small, intimate restaurant. It has a lovely atmosphere and gets extremely busy at times which all adds to the ambience and character.  It also has tables for outside dining at lunch or dinner overlooking the Cathedral and Cathedral Green.  3 miles

Highly rated cafe/restaurant in central Wells, offering extremely good value for money from a family run business.  Open for lunch, dinner and Sunday lunch.  BA5 2RR  3 miles
