Lovely food, and very consistently so. Nice relaxed atmosphere. Attention to detail on all dishes of the highest quality. Would be 5 stars but pretty pricey.

We have dined here previously and decided last minute to book a table to take friends to lunch. We were not disappointed - to sit in the restaurant and watch Adam work his magic was wonderful. Highly recommend for lunch and dinner and we will be back.

A little busy for Saturday lunch, but to be expected. Menu was short but good and cooking was fine. Staff working hard to keep up but helpful and created a nice atmosphere.

We visited Goodfellows on a family recomendation. The actual building is ok but the seating is not great, one couple actually walked out while we where there when they saw where they were expected to sit. We had a table by the door which was ok but a bit draughty. The loo is a little shabby but we didnt go... More

its a little while since I was last here and despite the proprietors having also opened another operation in nearby Shepton Mallet, it is reassuring to see that standards haven't slipped at all. Had a well travelled client visit from the Smoke but he was genuinely impressed with our light lunch and the quality of service. Salmon steaks were perfect... More

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.
