Innovative cooking

We had lunch there yesterday and my husband had the venison stew and I had duck confit. Both meals were excellent and we will certainly return on our next trip to Wells and have dinner there. Service was quick and efficient. Highly recommended

With a score of 4 or "very good" for the food and 2 or "poor" for the service, our visit to Goodfellow gets an average score of 3 or "average". It did not started well but as we were on a Travelzoo voucher and our dinner prepaid, we stayed. On arrival we were sat at a small table in the... More

We had a very pleasant evening enjoying excellent well presented food. On arrival we were greeted by friendly attentive staff and swiftly shown to our seats downstairs, opposite the kitchen serving bar. We chose the 5 Course Tasting Menu. Our favourites were the main course of Sea Bass with Mediterranean vegetables and the rhubarb desert. The House white wine was... More

Amazing menu and good value for money with good portion size. Excellent service and lovely intimate feel to the restaurant with attentive staff. Would definitely eat here again.

We called in for a snack lunch & quite frankly thought the service was pretty poor, it seemed to us that as we didn't want a big meal we were a nuisance to be got rid of as soon as possible! Certainly won't be going back again.

We chose Goodfellas for a celebration lunch. We selected starters and mains from the fish menu and our food was excellent (starters of fresh tuna and mushroom soup with salmon, mains of sea bass and sea bream). Fresh fish cooked and presented beautifully. I personally found the inside of the restaurant a little dark and we were in the room... More

The lunchtime offer here gives you two courses and a drink for a very reasonable price, otherwise this place probably strays into over-priced territory. The food is of a really good quality, but the portions are small, so certainly don't come here if you're wanting a big feed. Decent for a light lunch.

We really enjoyed our visit to Goodfellows recently. The restaurant was busy with a good atmosphere and the staff friendly and attentive. All the dishes were well presented and all of our party commented how delicious their starter and main was. The service was excellent and I would definitely recommend a visit to this consistently impressive restaurant. We are tempted... More

My partner and I came here for a romantic birthday celebration and was very impressed. The service was excellent and the ambience was nice as we sat in the right hand side in the restaurant. The menu was great and food tasted amazing. Thank you for a lovely evening i would highly recommend it.
