user reviews of the Quarter Jack, Wells

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

The Quarter Jack is the Wells branch of Wetherspoon's. My last stop late on a Sunday evening and it was busy with mainly youngsters. Bouncers are on the doors. Typical 'spoon's open-plan interior, with an ale range of Greene King Abbot, Ruddles Best, Sharp's Doom Bar, Exmoor Exile Apollo & Blindman's Golden Spring. Ciders were Mr Whitehead's Toffee Apple, Cock Eyed Bonobo Banana, Thatcher's Cheddar Valley, Hunt's Barn Screecher & Bull Walloper & Barbourne Cherry Bakewell. A good way to end my day's drinking in Somerset.

Another visit here just after noon, it was a bit quiet and took another hour until the place start to get busier, but service was good as was our food. My pint of Old Buzzard by Cotleigh Brewery (I actually remembered the name, must be an age related thing), it was a dark beer of 4.8% and was superb. According to the internet, this beer is also known as Buzzard - worth seeing the Cotleigh website

Visited on 2nd April in late afternoon, had the before 5pm food offer and a drink - a great deal with tasty food and a great pint.. Helpful and communicative staff, well kept and tasteful decor, it must be difficult for other pubs to compete at the prices charged and with the service Wetherspoons offer.

A new Wetherspoon’s opening in a building that was originally part of the bus depot but has been empty for some years, this has been in the planning for a considerable time having met with much opposition from locals NIMBY’s who want to see Wells remain a sleepy backwater rather than progressing in to the 21st Century. Much of the opposition seemed ill informed, including the neighbours of my in-laws who were vehemently opposed, despite having never set foot in a ‘Spoons.

It consists of one single L-shape room with a long bar counter on the right, although there is also a small snug off to the left with a glass partition. Décor wise it follows the recent JDW formula, with a slightly more contemporary look than some of the company’s older outlets. The central area has a pale parquet wood floor with trestle style tables and black leather chairs. Elsewhere the flooring is a mixture of carpet and tiling, whilst the paintwork is mostly battleship grey. There is also some exposed brickwork and quite a lot of dark slatted wood panelling on the walls as well as a number of pictures of the local area and notices regarding the local history including details of an old river that runs under the pub and the clock on the nearby cathedral from which the pub takes it’s name. An unusual feature was the “cellar” at the rear of the pub which was a sectioned off room with glass walls providing a clear view of the stillage.

Food wise, the menu offered the usual extensive range and my Pulled Pork Burger with Barbeque Sauce, Fries and Coleslaw was tasty enough and very good value I thought at £6.89 including a pint. It’s early days yet as this was the first Saturday of opening, but overall I was quite impressed. Staff seemed friendly and on the ball and this is a welcome addition to the local pub scene. The only downside was the temperature which could definitely have been a few degrees warmer. It’s seemed odd to have the air conditioning on, but not the heating, in the middle of January. Hopefully these are just teething problems.

Beers on tap were the usual Abbott Ale, Ruddles Best and Old Speckled Hen. These were joined by Bishop’s Finger and RCH Pitchfork. London Pride was apparently coming soon. Ciders were Strongbow, Stowford Press and Thatcher’s Gold.
