We had the 6 course tasting menu, bought through Travelzoo,at a very reasonable £65 for two. Over the space of around 3 hours we were treated to a series of wonderful dishes beautifully presented. Time was given in between courses, just long enough to chat and savour what we had just eaten. The waiter reminded us each time what we... More

This is a restaurant for a special occasion... Seafood at its most refined and best. We sat in a cosy layout around an open kitchen where you can watch the chefs prepare and cook your food. The taster menu of the day was cracking with the stars being both the scallop and pork belly courses The service is exceptional and... More

There are two restaurants on the same site - the slightly smarter main restaurant, and the modern, bright cafe. Both are really excellent. I've been there half a dozen times over the past year and had a wonderful meal each time. The cafe is much more informal, light and modern and has a wide menu choice with a strong focus... More

My wife and I recently visited this restaurant. The reception when we arrived was one of no interest. We received a nod and shown to a table without hardly a word. The table had not been cleared from the previous diners and we had to ask for it to be carried out. The service was slow and we asked for... More

This is the second time we have eaten here and the food and service was even better than before. I think this is now the best restaurant in this part of Somerset. I had the cod brandade as a starter. It was accompanied by cooked parma ham. It was simply superb. For my main course I had Pollock and it... More

As we live near, Goodflellows is a restaurant we have visited moe than once. This visit like all the others was a great experience. The fish dishes were absolutely superb and never disappoint. And that is from someone who does not normally choose fish on a menu! To be able to watch your food being prepared in the open kitchen... More

The food here was very good and the place was very busy which is always a good sign . A friend whom is very fussy about food recommend this place . I was impressed with the food but not the service . The waiter was very blunt and not very welcoming which was a shame as this affects the overall... More

We were lucky to have one of the last tables for lunch on Saturday but boy were we glad we did! We had the set menu which was just exquisite! The medley of fish was like a taster menu: bijoux, delicious bites- fabulous flavours (the lobster sauce was 'to die for'!), definitely one of the best lunches we've ever had...

Having read previous reviews of this café, we felt confident of quality dining but less so regarding the attitude of staff: we should not have worried as all staff, from the front of house, the excellent and informative waiter through to the chef were charming, welcoming and most friendly. The seafood taster menu was through all 6 courses totally impressive... More
