Nice lunch

When back to Goodfellows for lunch on Saturday, it has been a while since last. Food is still great, restaurant busy as usual and front house still running hard. Well done to you all !!!!

First time in Wells and the menu looked ideal for lunch. Food good but surly and sullen attitude of waiters completely spoiled the visit......never again in that eating place.....had better experiences in Little Chef !!!

6 of arrived on Saturday for dinner to celebrate our friends Diamond Wedding Anniversary, we were greeted with friendly staff and shown to our table. The food was out of this world, superb. Wonderful atmosphere, and a great evening.

Three of us came in for L10 meal that included tea or coffee, quiche or fish cake and salad and dessert. Good value. My boyfriend had a cheese sandwich and coffee. Desserts were lemon tart or a cake.

This is not an easy review to write so as to give an accurate pictured of this place. Also, it was my companion's birthday and she had asked to try the restaurant as a special treat and I know she enjoyed her meal. Anyway, when you first walk in you get the impression of it being a small stylish interesting... More

We dined on a Wednesday evening and the restaurant was quite full. The tables are very close together so you do feel a little cramped. You can watch the Chef at work but this does make the restaurant quite hot and stuffy. The set 3 course menu was excellent value and quality and the scallops from the a la carte... More

3 of us had an enjoyable meal here but... its expensive for what you get and the staff are almost abrupt/ arrogant in their manner, maybe its a french thing. The smoked salmon and caviar starter was very overpriced for what you got on the plate. With drinks you will be spending £45-50 / head easy.

Price was very good. 3 of us lunchtime with coffees less the £40. If you went to Costa and had a sandwich and coffee you would pay more!!! Take a break relax... More

NB this rating does not reflect the food but the service. We asked for a table for 3 after walking in at approx 1.30 pm on a weekday. We were told that there was nothing available and we would have to go away and come back but given no time-scales. As we were leaving a party of 6 left the... More
