The Wells reviews

Dreadful service. Rude and unfriendly.

A nice atmosphere and good food, but sadly let down by slightly 'superior' staff who I heard being quite derogatory about diners behind their backs. What a pity. Avoid!

Possibly the most attentive and amazingly friendly service I've ever experienced. Excellent food too. Thoroughly recommended.

Gorgeous food and friendly staff that know exactly what customer service means. A gem of a find. We'll definitely be going back!

On a busy Sunday afternoon, although a bit of a wait, the food was excellent. The waitress extremely friendy and made sure to sit us outside, which we had asked for, the second a table became available. The wine list is very good too. I'll be going back.

We are local and were put off after the first chef left. Now things are back on track - great food, good service and a lovely team of staff. I think there has been a change in chef, and it definitely shows. Glad to be going back regularly.

Friendly, helpful staff. Good food but pricey wine list (not much under £20). Very busy on a Sunday afternoon! Not a 'destination' as such, but worth checking out if you're in the neighbourhood.

Long long long wait for food in restaurant, even on a quiet Tuesday evening. Has not got its act together.

Lovely place to eat but food not that lovely. Wine list is superb and staff friendly and helpful.

Nice food and excellent Bloody Mary's although a bit chilly in winter upstairs.

Really helpful staff, even on a Sunday when it can get totally rammed.

Since the change of the chef last spring the place doesn't reach up to its previous standards.

The food is good but let down by staff who think they are working at The Ivy or Locanda Locatelli... a little warmth wouldn't go amiss.

Visited on a weekday afternoon. Very good food reasonable prices. Downstairs restaurant is better than the bar.
