Our Gin Bar

Gin is certainly enjoying a renaissance. Many major city centres now have a dedicated gin bar (or two). England’s smallest city, Wells deserved a gin bar, so the hotel now stocks over 100 varieties.

Gin has been around for centuries. For many years it was drunk for its alleged medicinal purposes; a cheap cure for ills such as grout, indigestion and malaria! Today, bottled gin comes in all shapes and sizes and can be flavoured with hints of different herbs, fruits and spices.

Gin of the month & club membership

Our gin bar menu is constantly changing. Every month it features a Gin of the Month and the hotel will endeavour to stock gins that customers specifically ask for.

Gin Bar Menu

Our gin bar stocks a wide range from traditional gins to the more adventurous. All palates are catered for. If you know little about gin, fear not. Our gin menu features helpful tasting notes and a list of complimentary tonics and garnishes. You could start off at ‘Death’s Door’ and end up on the ‘Portobello Road’ with ‘Sir Robin of Loxley’ (but please drink responsibly).

Gin Bar

Sit back in our bar or lounge with a refreshing G&T and enjoy the taste of your tipple with a lovely view of the stunning West Front of Wells Cathedral. During the summer months you can drink in the great outdoors on Swan Terrace or in our Walled Garden Cafe. And if that gin and tonic has whetted your appetite why not enjoy dinner in our award-winning restaurant, 15C A.D.
