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.

Finding a restaurant in Wells after the candlelight Carol Sevice in the Cathedral is never easy as they quickly book up. We managed to book Goodfellows and soon realised why it fills quickly. The staff were really friendly, and all our party of six were delighted with the food. It is famous for its fish, which was excellent but the... More

We have had lunch and dinner here for many years. The cuisine is consistently outstanding. The food is beautifully presented and all the fish dishes are very well cooked. We have eaten in many restaurants all over the world and this is one restaurant we always come back to.

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.
