Swan Hotel Restaurant - WellsSadler Street, Wells, Somerset, BA5 2RX
Find this good restaurant in the comfortable Best Western Swan Hotel, close to the Cathedral.
The long, oak-panelled, dining room is pleasantly extended in fair weather when it expands into the walled garden.
The kitchen, has built up a good network of local suppliers, and his refreshingly- short menus closely follow the seasons.
A late Spring menu brought ‘Fresh Asparagus with Parma Ham, Soft-Boiled Egg & Home-Made Salad Cream’; ‘Morel Mushroom Fricassée with Fried Spelt Bread’ and ‘Wood Pigeon & Foie Gras en Croûte with White Onion Purée, Somerset Brandy Sour Cherries’ amongst the starters.
‘Ashdale Rib-Eye Steak with Pont-Neuf Chips & Oven-Dried Tomatoes’; ‘Cotswold White Roast Chicken Breast with Freekeh Pilaff, Pine Nuts & Lemon Balm Mascarpone’; ‘Courgette & Pistachio Lasagne’ and ‘Slow-Roasted Pork Belly with Apple Sauce & Mashed Potato’ listed among the mains.
Desserts are equally tempting, with perhaps ‘Valrhona Chocolate Amandine with Beetroot Chantilly & Raspberry Soup’, ‘Amaretti Meringue with Toffee Apple Compote & Vanilla Mess’ and ‘Glazed Lemon Tart’ on offer. While those with a more savoury tooth should enjoy their selection of local cheeses.
