About Bishop's Eye
Bishop's Eye, in the Somerset City of Wells, is a wine bar with wine shop. It's housed in the 15th century grade II* listed gate-way into the Bishop’s Palace. The bar serves award wining Somerset cheeses and charcuterie boards.
Not the fault of the wine bar, it was a shame that the ambiance of the market place can't be improved. Service was good and sharing platters generous.
Fabulous food, very friendly and efficient staff. The wind made things interesting! Will definitely be back, hopefully when the weather improves. Many thanks for a lovely lunch.
Impressed with the change in menu since my last visit, much better choice and larger portions. Food and wine were excellent. Disappointing that it closed so early, when I booked I was told we would need to leave at 5:00pm but last orders was about 4:00pm and we were the last people there. Not always pleasant to have people clearing up around you. Surprised that they didn't stay open longer considering they've been shut for so long. Lovely friendly staff though and we will definitely be back.
Great Alfresco lunch. Platters are really lovely and tasty. Will definitely be back and will recommend to our B&B guests. Alyson & Simon, The Old Stables, Chelynch
Lovely evening drink and platter in the sunshine!
We had a lovely time sat outside with gorgeous cheese and wine! Even though we had a spot of rain the staff put the cover up straight away and we carried on all afternoon :)
Good service and food. Friendly and efficient staff
As with any menu change some winners some losers. The duck liver pate is nowhere near as good as the old forestier, but the trout terrine from Mear Trout is of course excellent and the smoked chicken breast is fantastic though a touch over priced. Again, with the cheeses, some of the old favourites have been replaced by some very dull brie and cheddar, but the Tor and Bishops Eye Blue are excellent. Staff are as excellent as ever and the expanded cocktail list needs further investigation. Hot chocolate with baileys should come with an 18 rating
Loved it. A patio heater would have been lovely.
We had a very pleasant evening experience at The Bishop’s Eye with wine and charcuterie. We will definitely be going back soon.
Molly the waitress was the best waitress we've had in the South West. 10/10 should be paid more.
This is my favourite drinking establishment in Wells. Always have such a lovely time with good wine and food. I will keep coming back!
Great service. Helpful staff. Lovely chartercurie board, but did find there was a lack of crackers and bread for the amount of food on the sharing board. This was rectified with some more slices of bread.
Lovely sunshine and great atmosphere! First class service!Thank you
Very welcoming and plenty of wine choice
What a wonderful way to come out of lockdown! Friendly service, fantastic wine in the sunshine and delicious cheese. Thank you :)
Ive been here four times now and have enjoyed every time, thankyou i wii be back in the new year.
We always have a lovely time with simple good food, good wine and great atmosphere at the Bishop’s Eye
Always such a fantastic treat. The service is impeccable and the food and wine is outstanding. Thank you!
Great atmosphere, excellent smoked salmon and charcuterie boards Long chat with Louis. He always makes time to welcome everyone. A bit noisy downstairs - kitchen clatter and David moving bottles around. Otherwise, the best in town.
Great afternoon at Bishop's eye. The food was really good, it was lovely to look out the window and just people watch. Definitely recommend it
Thank you for a great evening, look forward to returning. Fabulous wine & fantastic menu choice.
Lovely wine! Really well priced and nice cheese platters. Loved the choice of cheese and the staff were really accommodating. We also bought some wine to take home and they were very knowledgeable. Would definitely go there again!
