4 of us ate there before attending carol service at Wells Cathedral. Really impressed with the food, service and surroundings. Chose turkey as it's December but it wasn't like a 'normal Christmas dinner' as it was stuffed breast of turkey served with polenta, sprouts and chestnuts and a delicious vegetable puree. Will certainly make a return visit.

Wells was very busy because it was the Somerset W.I. Carol Festival in the Cathedral. We had booked a table and had a very nice lunch, reasonably priced and the service was good.

Took my Mum for her Birthday, we had the tasting menu which was fantastic, you don't know what's coming so as long as you are not fussy it's the best way to go. Porcini Soup with Smoked Salmon, Seared Tuna with Peperonata, Tiger Prawn with Chorizo & aioli, Pollack with Fennel and Poached Pear with Mandarin Ice cream. What can... More

While visiting Wells we had a late lunch at this restaurant just off the market square. The menu is comprehensive, and the wine list adequate. We can recommend the sauvignon blanc with the fish! All the dishes we ordered were well presented and delicious, with just the right level of attentive but not overbearing service. Our only cricism would be... More

We called in to the cafe part for lunch, and what a lovely surprise. The food was excellent especially the scallops and the lemon tart was lovely with melt in the mouth pastry. If we are in Wells again we would definitely visit again.

We visit Goodfellows regularly, and it never fails to please. Last night we went for dinner with two friends and had the six course tasting menu. The quality of food was yet again at the very top of expectations, how this place does not have a Michelin star is beyond me. Pumpkin soup with large prawn to start, the most... More
