Popped in at lunchtime whilst on quick visit to Wells on coach trip, did the cathedral tourist bit, and this looked the most interesting pub I spotted
6 real ales on, and 4 ciders for my visit, as Blackthorn said, lots of different partitioned areas, some seem more food / dining than drinking

We plonked down in main bar area, I could not tell you what I bitter I had, never noted it down, but it was a nice pint

The locals, and I presume landlady were friendly and chatty, did not have food there, but the food I did see looked good

Never likely to return due to distance, but if in Wells, certainly one to visit

Blackthorn _ left this review about City Arms

Large, U shaped pub conveniently located just off the High Street. The courtyard at the front seems a bit claustrophobic, I think they may have done some work there a few years ago which is a shame as the building has lost some of it's character. Once you're inside it's fine though, with several distinct areas.

There was a very good choice of ales on tap, about six or seven in total, inc. Doom Bar, Sharp's Red Ale, Butcombe, Wickwar IKB and Cheddar's Gorge Best. Also a good line-up of ciders, namely Blackthorn, Ashton Press, Suffolk Dry and Addlestones.

Looks to be a decent food offering, although we didn't try it on this occasion.

I like a pub with lots of different places to sit, choice of sofas and chairs, pretty courtyard. Food was extremely nice (attention to detail - my salad came with hot roasted pine nuts, instead of straight out of a packet). Great menu.
