Places To Eat

One of the most frequent questions that we get asked by our guests is where whether we can recommend a good local restaurant for them to visit. Well there are many excellent restaurants in the area specialising in a variety of cuisines. On this page we highlight some of our favourites, it's not an exhaustive list but there should be plenty here to whet your appetite! These restaurants are all very popular so advance booking is recommended!

Root, Wells

"Root Wells, is the second establishment of its brand. The first is located on the banks of Bristol’s historic harbour in Wapping Wharf. Opening in 2017, owners Josh Eggleton (The Pony Group) and Luke Hasell (The Story Farms / Valleyfest) wanted to create a forward-thinking restaurant that championed local suppliers and producers, and led with a ‘more veg, less meat’ ethos. After the success of Root, Bristol, Head Chef Rob Howell and his wife and Manager Meg Oakley wanted to bring a neighbourhood restaurant to their home of Wells."

We say... 

Excellent restaurant in the centre of Wells. Offering small plates, brilliantly presented and bursting with original flavours. There is a focus on meat free food, however meat eaters will be very pleasantly surprised by the flavours and textures that are achieved. The restaurant has a trendy relaxed style and is highly regarded.

Aurora Kusina, Shepton Mallet

"A modern twist on Filipino comfort food"

We say...

If you like high impact flavours, a very relaxed setting and some punchy cocktails then this is the place for you. A small restaurant based at the bottom of Shepton Mallet High Street, Aurora Kusina offers delicious original flavours with a very strong Filipino vibe. There's plenty of meat and vegetarian options and it's always a treat to dine there.

Goodfellows@7B, Wells

"Adam & Martine Fellows are the team behind Goodfellows Restaurant. 7B is their latest venture, a stunning new restaurant and venue for Adam's cookery demonstrations and courses."

We say...

Delicious French style cuisine in a semi-formal setting a bit away from the centre of town. Adam is an excellent and clearly very experienced chef and there is always a delicious offering of seafood dishes amongst other delights. The restaurant is set on the ground floor of a former terrace house where you can watch the chefs at work. Cooking demonstrations and courses are also available, see their website for details.

Beckford Canteen, Bath

"Set in a former Georgian greenhouse, Beckford Canteen is a space for people to come together and share the joys of delicious food and great hospitality.

Sitting on bustling Bartlett Street, in one of the prettiest parts of Bath, the restaurant offers a light and airy space bedecked with banquettes, leather clad dining chairs and window countertops to watch the world go by.

Beckford Canteen is the perfect stop for a quick, tasty bite or a longer, more indulgent dining experience."

We say...

Having treated ourselves to an evening meal here we can testify that this stylish restaurant offers incredibly tasty dishes, fine wines and high end service. It is a beautiful and very comfortable setting, and a tranquil escape form hustle and bustle of the historic City of Bath.
