Recommended Places to Eat
Just a few examples, as there are numerous pubs/restaurants/cafes in and around Wells
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.

Newly refurbished, tasteful with lovely beer garden. Fabulous Sunday Lunches.

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
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.

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.
