Vegetarian soul food in the heart of Wells

I moved to Glastonbury from London a couple of years ago and spent a good amount of time searching for local places to eat regularly. Once I discovered Good Earth in Wells, I instantly knew I would become a regular. The restaurant itself has the warm and earthy feel of an old English country house... read more

I eat in the Good Earth several times a week and never get bored by their food. The menu changes daily, the soups and salads are delicious and the staff are always friendly and welcoming.

Luch with husband and mum in law. There was not a huge choice but we came in rather late so some things had finshed by then. That said, my quiche was gorgeous, very cheesy, and the salads with it lovely too. Husband and mil were very happy with their tagine too. Also a good selection of cakes which had all... More

Excellent food considering that it is vegetarian. My daughter's both loved the food. One had a pizza the other had a veg stew. Really good

Best restaurant/café in Wells, by a long margin.. Always clean, friendly, atmospheric and healthy! Plus the added bonus of their organic food shop out the back.

Very nice café, vegetarian meals very good with plenty of choice. Not the case for vegans, unfortunately. Offered soup, jacket potatoes and salad or vegetable curry. What I wanted was something I cannot/don't make for myself. A pie, a pizza, something with pasta and sauces. Quite disappointed.

As locals, we visit this cafe every time we visit Wells. It offers fabulous, extremely tasty, reasonably priced vegetarian food in a relaxed setting. Everything is made on the premises and the kitchen is visible, which is a good sign. Quiches, pizzas, hot dishes, salads, dessert of the day, cakes! I wouldn't go anywhere else!

There's nothing to dislike about The Good Earth! While touring the area to interrogate local estate agents about property for sale we'd worked up an elephantine appetite. Fortunately and not a moment too soon we were pointed in the direction of The Good Earth. It was everything starving visitors to the town could wish for: delicious casseroles, lasagnes, salads, breads,... More

The Good Earth Cafe has been consistently serving good food in a pleasant cafe for many many years. It has never failed and you can be sure of having a lovely meal on any visit. Do give it a try.
