    Tagliatelle + Ragu very tasty and pasta cooked correctly, but could do with more pasta for the quantity of sauce i.e. portion size was a little small.

    Unfortunately a long black hair was found in my friends food. They was quick to replace it but when the new dish came out they didn’t put any vegetables on the plate (comes part of the dish) and didn’t let my friend know they had run out. They just expected us not to notice. They took the main off the bill. But won’t be returning.

    Warm welcome, nicely decorated dining pub with a good ambiance although it was a little chilly on our table which was close to the front door. Excellent service and some of the best food we have had in a long time. It is not an extensive menu, which is good and as it gives you confidence that everything is prepared freshly. Every dish we tried was delicious and well presented. Highly recommended and we hope to return soon.

    First time for us at The Sheep and Penguin. The bright modern decor was lovely as was the welcome received and service throughout was swift and friendly. However I was a little disappointed despite having booked a fortnight before and requesting a quiet table to be placed right next to the bar area which was so loud we couldn’t hear ourselves talk. The food was “ok” portions a little small for the price and our table wobbled throughout which drove us to distraction!There are other places in Wells we prefer so doubt we’ll return.
