We were staying in Wells recently, saw Goodfellows and decided to book for an evening meal. We booked for 6:30pm, which proved to be the right decision. We chose a table near the window, which was pleasant enough. The waiter brought the menus (but not the wine list, which I always think is strange as most people like to order... More

We booked this restaurant online and expected to have a reserved table when we arrived. There was no evidence that our reservation had been made. Fortunately there was a spare table as we had made an early reservation but had we been an hour later I am not sure we would have had a table. The waiter who initially served... More

Goodfellows is a great restaurant, I eat here regularly when meeting up with girlfriends for a light lunch and catch up gossip. The staff are excellent even when they are busy and the food has never disappointed. There aren't many places around here where you can get such a good quality meal and the Patisserie is delight and we always... More

On a return visit to Wells we decided to pop into Goodfellows and sample their evening menu and we weren't disappointed. As it was a fairly warm night we asked to sit outside and the staff were happy to reset a table and even though we were the only people out there they didn't forget us while they concentrated on...

Notably Goodfellows has the potential to be a source of great food in Wells but as someone who lives in Wells, I can confirm the place has been on my blacklist for some time simply because of the rudeness of the owners and staff. I would not have bothered to write this review but I note with interest, other people... More

We booked a table at the last minute not knowing what to expect. Our table was right by the kitchen, the chef's table almost, and it was good being able to see the food being prepared and plated up. The menu isn't extensive, but then I prefer the smaller restaurant to concentrate on a few dishes it does well. The... More

We regularly visit Goodfellows for a leisurely breakfast on market day. Croissants & cakes are great, coffee good and a couple of boiled eggs complete the package. Can relax, read paper and chat to friendly staff if they are not too busy!

We were impressed by the care that the waiter took to ensure that our dietary needs were met. Classy food and good service in a fairly classy restaurant, but quite reasonably priced. Would definitely go again if we were in the vicinity
