Based in the historic city of Wells, The Ancient Gatehouse Hotel and its authentic Italian eatery, Rugantinos were founded over Francesco Rossi and is now run by his two sons. The brothers known as Rossi & Rossi, are owners of two others establishments in Somerset, The Mendip Inn and the 15th-Century White Hart Hotel. This hotel boasts nine rooms bedecked with homely curiosities, four-poster beds and fireplaces, with some overlooking Wells Cathedral.

The food was excellent and the service was slick and unintrusive. Highly recommended and our group of 7 will definitely go back.

Service was good, food wasn’t bad. Not jaw dropping good, but was not disappointed. The Gorgonzola gnocchi was excellent.

Staff very attentive and pleasant - good service and not rushed. Nice venue backing onto Wells Cathedral Green. Food very good; well cooked, though not quite 'excellent'. We had the 7 course Taster Menu. 3 starters good, but the 2nd one would have benefitted from pasta rather than rice - again? Lemon sorbet delicious. Main course lamb perhaps better presented sliced, rather than in 2 lumps? Big portion! Veg was a lovely selection cooked al dente. Dessert; I would have preferred a smaller portion of lemon pie and 2 scoops of ice-cream of different flavours. Nice concept though and an enjoyable meal and evening over all.

We had a very nice meal good food and nicely presented. 3 starters a sorbet a main a sweet and coffee. For a tasting menu the portions were very generous and we were feeling very full. A good experience and the other food people were eating looked good too.
