Its been a bank holiday weekend here in the UK (exactly the same as Public Holiday just a more British way of saying it) and my other half and I went and enjoyed a day in Wells.
Wells is in the South West of England and is home to the Wells Cathedral, Bishops Palace, markets and is also where the film Hot Fuzz was filmed. We live just down the road so it was bit of being a tourist in your own area type of day.
My other half had been told about a newish restaurant and we thought we should check it out for lunch. And oh my was this suggestion a good one.
You wouldn’t have known it was there walking down the street kinda like one of the secret bars that keep popping up everywhere. Locate in an all old sub station on a very unassuming street opposite a hideous night club and next to a car wash was the black door that took you to meat heaven.
The atmosphere, décor and communal seating had been cleverly thought out and all made you feel comfortable, relaxed and like your at home just with way better food. The staff added to this and we had fantastic service.
The food is mostly burgers, wings, ribs, sticky, saucey and pure delish. My other half opted for the biggest burger on the menu (thinking it may cure his hangover) and I had a spicy chicken wrap. Both of these were amazing. Super tasty, full of flavours and just hit the spot. They stock a lot of craft beers and ciders which due to aforementioned hangovers we didn’t try. I did however have a Bounty Hunter milk shake which came with the added bonus of a bounty bar (big thumbs up from me).
Upstairs they have a bar which I am assuming they have for the evening and two games rooms one had Mario Kart on and the other had a foosball table. Beautifully quirky! After speaking to some friends I’ve also heard they do amazing cocktails so will need to go back one evening and give these a try.
Everything was reasonably priced and between the two of us cost under £25.
If happen to find yourself in this lovely little city then make sure you stop by The Subhouse. Who knows we might be sat on the table next to you- I’ll be the one with the pink carnation
