All 7 of us had a wonderful meal, just a bit dubious about pairing skate wing with parsnips!. However, we will return and that is a promise.

Food and service was excellent. Would 100% recommend a visit to anyone. The seafood platter to share was amazing. It's a shame we live 120 miles away otherwise we would be here at least twice a month, it's that good.

We dine here regularly, but the menu is continually refreshed, and lots of creative specials. Very high standard of food and service.

Wells Crab House just keeps getting better and better! Every time we visit the menu changes. The choice of different dishes is interesting and varied. The seafood itself is incredibly fresh and is cooked to perfection by the chef. Despite the restaurant being virtually full, the service was attentive and friendly. Overall, another exceptional dining experience.

Lovely fish, cooked very well, and very tasty The additional parts of the meal, ie, the lemon rice (which was tepid) and thai rice with fruit were disappointing, a strange sauce spoilt the dish. I would have preferred the meal to be hotter too. My wife's halibut was perfect but the dauphinoise potatoes with crab and coconut layers were bland and a bit tasteless. Again, the meal wasn't hot enough. Both dishes were tepid as if they'd been prepared too hastily. It was an expensive meal, and not quite up to the high praise and recommendations that prompted us to go

I cannot add anything to any of the reviews I have done before, simply because they must all be the same, owing to the fact that nothing changes in that the food is always amazing and the staff are second to none. We love going to Wells Crab House. A brilliant experience !!!!
