Win a selection of treats worth £200

THE Bishop’s Eye, a contemporary wine bar and coffee shop, continues to go from strength to strength – and to celebrate its fourth Christmas in Wells, it is offering Wells Voice readers the chance to win some great prizes in a fabulous festive competition.

The wine bar and restaurant at 12 Market Place has become a destination venue for those looking to enjoy locally sourced sharing platters of smoked fish, charcuterie and cheese, complemented by hand-picked wines and bespoke cocktails.

It is also a favourite spot to enjoy award-winning coffee and homemade cakes in the beautiful interior or alfresco in the historic market square.

The Grade I listed building was originally completed in 1451 and was built as a gateway to The Bishop’s Palace. On the front face of the building are heraldic shields that were carved into the stonework. These shields remain to this current day. The interior has been transformed by owner Louis Agabani whilst making sure to retain many original features.

Christmas is always a special time of year at Bishop’s Eye – and it wants to make sure that someone can celebrate the season in style with this month’s cracker of a competition.

The prize for one lucky winner is a selection of products including wine, cheese and much more, collectively worth £200.

To enter the competition, answer this simple question: What heraldic objects are carved in the stone on the front of the Bishop’s Eye?

Email your answer, along with your name, address and contact details, to or write out the information on a postcard or piece of paper which can be left in a box on the counter at Bishop’s Eye.

Entrants must be aged 18 or over, and there can only be one entry per household.

The closing date for entries is noon on Monday, December 4, 2023. After this date, a winner will be drawn from all the correct entries. The winner must collect their prize from Bishop’s Eye, and their name will be published in a future edition of Wells Voice.

Additional competition rules: No cash alternative. The winners may have to provide proof of identity and age. The competition organisers’ decision is final and no correspondence will be entered into. Please note that the photograph is only an indication of the type of products that will be in the hamper, not necessarily the identical products.
