Read our review of Nosh-stalgia, Wells

Oh we like this place! Nosh-stalgia is a super laid back cafe-bar-bistro in Wells, quirkily decorated with the owner’s vintage finds, with an eclectic, inventive menu – and the best coffee in the city. Barrel bars and tables outside and vintage stuff for sale.

Co-owner and chef Leigh Say started working with the local butcher when he was just 13, learned his trade in Switzerland, the Emirates Academy in Dubai and London, and has worked in kitchens and cooked for top chefs and celebrities around the world, garnering seven (and counting) AA rosette certificates of merit for culinary excellence along the way.  Now he’s opened up his own place in Wells.

It’s all about fresh, seasonal produce, so whatever catches Leigh’s eye – from suckling pig from Spain to Ogleshield cheese from North Cadbury – finds itself on the menu, which changes slightly almost daily.

He’s also got a brilliant eye for unusual retro pieces and the place is decked out in vintage signs, lighting, mirrors, objets – there’s even a table made out of a bed of nails.  Some of the dishes are retro too (hence the name Nosh-stalgia).

Come for breakfast, lunch, dinner, gold-medal winning Anvil coffee and cake, or just a glass of wine. It would be a fab place for a party.

Parking is easy peasy: Nosh-stalgia is situated on the edge of the Union Street car park right in the centre of Wells (handy for the shops, market, the Wells Film Centre, the Bishop’s Palace….)
