Excellent seafood

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

We went for dinner on a Saturday night and it was very busy. The staff were very friendly and although they were busy taking orders and getting people seated we didn't have to wait long for our menus or for our drinks order to be taken. Our meals were well cooked as we were seated in the kitchen area we... More

My husband and I recently booked at goodfellows for a Saturday night, we have eaten here a few times before and we were not disappointed this visit. We decided to eat by the open kitchen which I like as it is interesting to watch Adam and the chefs cooking and plating up. I decided on the asparagus either truffle oil... More

Had lunch today at Goodfellows - food divine, service excellent. We were offered a seat outside in the glorious sunshine but I just couldn't miss the kitchen action, so opted for an interior table. Mesmerised by watching Adam and his team create wonderful plates of food. Highly recommend this little gem of a restaurant.

We went to Wells today to visit the Bishop's Palace Gardens and found this really lovely Cafe/Restaurant just over the road. They also have an outside eating area which was very pleasant particularly on a hot day. Goodfellows serves really nice food which is really tasty and well presented. We opted for the £10 set lunch and it was really... More

An attractive menu and a busy appearance enticed my friend and I into the restaurant on a fairly quiet Thursday night in Wells. No one to welcome us, we waited, still no one, then a member of the kitchen staff walked through, we waited, still no one, we left....

Our first visit to this restaurant for lunch and we were not disappointed. Food was very good and staff attentive. Love to go back in the evening when the fish selection is better. Good value for money as well.

This is a lovely family run restaurant. I have been there a few times now and have not been disappointed. I am celiac and they are very careful for me. I love the tuna carpaccio salad. It is a good idea to book a table as it is a small restaurant.

We went as part of a family holiday and were very much looking forward to it. We arrived with a hungry child and high expectations. Ten minutes later we left, having been studiously ignored by the waitress. Hopefully this is not the usual level of service, maybe it was because we were a family. Whatever the reason I can't give...
