Fabulous food, generous portions, an attractive variety of dining rooms and mostly really friendly staff. On my recent visit, my friend and I ate cottage pie which was totally delicious. When I asked about the recipe, our extremely helpful waitress gave it to me in detail and advised me on how to join the mailing list for recipes and news.... More

We'd read reviews this establishment so after visiting the Cathedral, we took a short walk from the city centre to The Good Earth. Even though it was lunchtime, there was plenty of seating. Great food, plenty of vegan options - sweet potato tagine with couscous was very tasty. Pizza and salads recommended by non-veggie partner. Tap water available. Lovely little... More

Amazing food, excellent service and friendly staff. Lots of attention to detail where it matters apart from the cutlery which feels like it came out of a school refrectory! Throw the hideous knives and forks away and get something that reflects the quality of the food and atmosphere!

Was back in beautiful Somerset on holiday again! Day trip to the lovely city of Wells (England's smallest city!) Was planned and I was looking forward to having lunch at The Good Earth, a place I'd read much about and even heard about up in my native North Lincolnshire! Now given that the place has been going for nearly 40... More

This is one of our regular haunts. Good, wholesome food that never disappoints. Not 'fine' food, but great flavours and very hearty.

I have been here countless times and I love the food! My advice is take everyone you know and go hungry, the food is fresh and really tasty served in generous portions by helpful and kind people (what more can you ask for)! The coffee and pastries served at breakfast time are amazing too, the only problem is trying to... More

I have been visiting The Good Earth for perhaps forty years now. Although there have, of course, been changes of ownership during that time, the basic ethos of hearty, healthy, tasty vegetarian food in welcoming surroundings remains the same. I believe that under the current ownership, the food is some of the best I have tasted there. Can't really recommend... More

I have lived near Wells for the best part of 34 years and, although The Good Earth wholefood restaurant has changed hands several times over that period, the ethos has not - good, wholesome, homemade vegetarian food served with a smile. My daughter was in a pushchair when we first visited and it is still one of our favourite places... More

This place is just amazing. The fabulous food is all served with a smile, quirky surroundings but it's all about the great food. This is our second visit and its a real treat to get a seat and take in the atmosphere. Love it! Will be back.

A bustling very popular restaurant. Due I imagine to the demand they have fairly recently extended the restaurant area into their health food shop. There is also an outside courtyard area which can be used by diners when weather permits. The shop has reopened to the rear of the restaurant. We have eaten here on many occasions and can highly...
