Just about worthy of 5/5

Been a few times now, both on business and socially and overall a very nice experience. Seafood appears to be their specialty. A touch on the expensive side but ultimately worth it.

Food very good, service was quick if a little impersonale.The desserts particularly good hence tittle of review, the rhubarb cheese cake was delicious. On a negative note picture shown does not appear to be a true rep of area we where seated in ?

We have visited as often as we can but when our son visited us from Berkshire we took him. We had the tasting menu and wine flight - every course was outstanding. Adam did not disappoint, and to watch him prepare the dishes is mesmerising. Service as always to a high standard. This restaurant is a must visit. X

This is our favourite restaurant in Wells and while we go nearly every week for breakfast this time we signed up for one of their dinner tasting menu evenings. Fish is the speciality at Goodfellows and as always Adam had created a varied and very tasting set of dishes at a great value price. Great selection of wines to accompany... More

Very nice fish restaurant, although when we went there was a bit less fish on the menu that you might expect. I had the sea trout and it was cooked to perfection. Service was prompt and pleasant, and when we booked it was obvious that it would be a busy evening as we couldn't get the original time we wanted.

Lunch for 6 on market day = the busiest day in Wells. (Pre-booked table - this is essential.) 3 courses for £25 each person. Each course was lovely. Light, fresh and very tasty. Gluten free catered for without any trouble. Plenty of other choices apart from the menu that we chose, so you could have had less or more.

Went Wells for the day with relatives who had booked this restaurant/cafe. Adam & Martine were very friendly. The food was very good, small, but very tasty, very french. 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 it a problem. This... More
