Love it

In my opinion, the best kept beer in Wells with a couple of decent regular brews (Cheddar Potholder and Moor Merlins Magic) and frequent specially chosen guest ales plus proper cider. The log fire in the front bar is a treat if you can hog the closest table - consistently friendly staff, free WiFi and excellent food. Would make it my office if I could.

Lively, quality pub, right in the middle of Wells' High Street. The King's Head - "where medieval meets modern..."

    Sorry Rachel

       

    I'm sad to hear of so many problems with your meal Rachel, and a little surprised you would not have mentioned any of this during your visit? Could you tell me which day you visited us?

    Not so good this time

       

    We have had meals at The Kings Head a few times now and all have been so so - but last week it was awful.

    1) Customers pushed in front of us and the bar lady clearly saw but continued to take there orders.
    2) There was a long wait for food.
    3) I asked for no salad with my burger yet a pile of the stuff came with it.
    4) My burger was stone cold.
    5) I paid for cheese with my burger and got what looked like a small table spoon of grated cheese - I may as well of not bothered - this was no cheese burger!
    6) My triple cooked chips which I fondly remembered from last time have now turned into large undercooked wedges (completely different to the last chips we had)
    7) The table next to us giggled at how small my husband's chicken burger was - and yes it was weenie!
    8) The table In front has there orders forgotten which wasn't fun to watch.
    9) My daughter said her sausages were terrible and couldn't eat them.
    10) Let's not talk about the draft lagers - all I would say is they could do with cleaning the pipes.

    I felt so sorry for the poor lad who was running around all on his own with no help - so didn't have the heart to tell him how rubbish the meal was. The Kings Head is handy as it’s in the heart of Wells but it’s touch and go if you get a decent meal.

    The Kings Head

       

    This is undoubtedly the best pub in Wells, and I don't say that lightly. there are many good pubs in Wells, but there is always one that stands out head and shoulders above the rest. Food, drink, service, menu, and staff make it a very pleasant place to visit. Regrettably I go there too infrequently, and I don't like missing out.

    Another fan here!

       

    Beautifully-kept ales including my staple: Potholer. The staff are all entertaining personalities and obviously really enjoy their work. The landlord Steve is as sharp as a fresh lemon, continually leading the way with new ideas to satisfy Wells' palate, musical and educational needs - eg you can now scan barcodes outside the pub to follow it on Twitter & Facebook - I call that pretty cutting edge! He also managed the soundstage for the recent Night on the Town in the City and the pub hosts numerous quality live music acts and business seminars. If it's happening in Wells, it's likely the King's Head is involved somewhere - yes, even with the WI, but that's another story.... ;)

    My Local

       

    A great place to have a few beers in the evening with your friends. The beer is well looked after and there is always a good choice. During the day a good place to hang out and get a bit of work done (using the free wi-fi) and eat. The perfect antidote to the pre-fab pub chain and a landlord with engages with the local community.

    Great

       

    having somewhere to go at the end of a long week to enjoy a beer or two which offers great service, great beer and great music in my opinion is one of the necessities in life!. The Kings head has it is great to have somewhere like this in Wells. I have probably spent a small fortune in here over the years however worth every penny!
