One of our party did find a small piece of plastic in his meal, which was pointed out at the time but they didn't seem to think... read more

Forgive the pun, but this place is great. We met different sets of friends on two days running and spent a happy time at Goodfellows over lunch. We chose from the light lunch menu on both occasions. The dishes were very tasty and beautifully presented. The cost was £10 per person which covered a glass of wine (very acceptable), a... More

Our initial table upstairs was uncomfortably warm for this girl. The maître de once informed seated us in nice open conservatory area. The starters included tuna sashimi an absolute delight. I tried gazpacho for the first time lovely fresh light flavour. Mains were confit duck and chicken in a tomato based sauce.sumptuous food with exemplary service.

Initial table upstairs in a room too hot and too crowded, spoke to the maître de who gave us a table in the conservatory. The chef came over to explain that one of the menu choices had sold out but offered to make an alternative.Service... More

First there was the booking- we wanted to eat at 7.00 pm but had to settle for 6.45 - why? No other customers came in until we were ready to leave - no problems with restaurant filling up, so why couldn't we go at the time we wanted? Food was well cooked and presented but no real imagination. Sample menu... More

We had a fantastic meal for twenty people and did not have to choose in advance. All th food looked great, tasted great and was freshly good by a well skilled chef and his team. Canapes were really tasty, fig goats chees on pastry, humour on crisp shards, anchovies on crispy bread and tapenade. Starters were all well received with... More

I visited here with my daughters and the menu was not quite to their tastes (age 8 and 11) However they had their favourite pasta dish made for them both with no hesitation. I throughly enjoyed my smoked salmon dish. The staff were so helpful and kind. .great service Would return.

Pretty interior, great staff, lots of regular customers. Great fish, beautifully cooked. Obviously very fresh ingredients, I imagine the menu changes with what is available. The puddings were great, too. Just near the cathedral and the best view of the cathedral is about 50 metres away. It has an outside seating area at the back which I did not visit.

Recommended to us and lived up to this recommendation. My scallops were great and service was excellent. A good sign - the restaurant was packed.
