Once a coaching inn, The Swan is in the heart of Wells, close to the cathedral. The panelled restaurant is smart and comfortable, with a short but ingenious menu. Japanese cure mackerel comes with shiso salad and a ginger and carrot dressing, or there might be wood pigeon bruschetta with wilted radicchio chives and balsamic vinegar. Main courses might include roast south coast hake with olive oil mash, fennel 'two ways' and sauce vièrge, or whole roasted red-legged partridge with potato fondant and Savoy cabbage with bacon and walnuts. Check out the warm honey and stout tart for dessert.
