Well recommended.

For our main course I had comfit of duck and my wife had sea bass. Both dishes were beautiful. Service was good and timely. I forced myself to... read more

My wife and I called into the Goodfellows Cafe in Sadler Street Wells. We had not booked. We were greeted most welcoming and the staff were very cheerful and helpful. We both chose the chicken roast, which was served with the expected veg and roast potatoes, all coated in a delicious red wine jus. This was one of the best... More

I recently had the pleasure of taking a good friend out for dinner in Wells and we chose Goodfellows. We both chose the tasting menu and also went with the wine pairing menu. The food was superb and did not disappoint. The first few dishes were quite rushed and came our one after the other, not leaving us a chance... More

Our third visit and it just keeps getting better. Bravely, they have the chefs at work in full view of the clients and via CCTV...! Their confidence is based upon the complete professionalism of the chefs who quietly ply their trade with surgical precision. The results are very special, a treat to behold and delicious. Last night (9/01/2015) I had... More

We came here with friends in October wanting to share with them this lovely restaurant - we opted for the tasting menu with wine flight for 3 out of 4 of us. One friend only likes red wine & the owner went out of his way to help with the selection & corked up the remains of his bottle to... More

We have visited Goodfellows many times and have always been extremely impressed with the service and the food. I recently ordered for takeaway a celebratory birthday cake and was once again very happy with the look and taste of the cake, the service and the price! Thanks again; we'll be back.

We visited the restaurant for lunch and without a reservation. I chose the lunch special of Quiche du jour followed by Cheese Cake, A nice glass of dry white accompanied the meal. £10 for lunch was very good value and served very well by the attentive staff.

The name Goodfellows invokes pictures of gangsters and pizzas, but you couldn't be further from the truth; this is a top quality restaurant that specialises in fish dishes of the highest quality. In Wells, you have to rely on good gastro pub food or else bistro quality cuisine - nothing that really stands out, although some of the pubs are... More

We visited this restaurant during the festive season and found a haven away from the madding crowds. The restaurant was well appointed and the food was really well cooked and presented. The service was also first class. We will return to this first class restaurant

We popped in as we were passing only to discover that we had made a fabulous choice. I can recommend the scallops, soup and quiche which we had as starters. We then had the duck and the fish cake which were equally lovely. A great wine menu completed the day.
