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...

This place is lovely - very relaxed with delicious veggie and vegan options plus some fantastic vegan and organic wines by the glass. The courtyard garden offers a lovely relaxing space in warmer weather. Make sure you visit the gift shop and health food shop too!

On our way home from Dorset 4 years ago we called here and loved it so much that we made another detour to visit again. Now it's much bigger but still retains its comfortable nature. The food is amazing, vegetarian with lots of variety, we had pizza and salads which was lovely. Very tasty and varied. Definitely worth going out... More

As I live locally to Wells, I often visit here for lunch, usually on a Saturday with the family. The food is wholesome, delicious and portions are very generous. Approach is, find a table, go to the counter and make your selection, load your plate up and enjoy! Have been here with visiting friends as well who have said how... More

This place was recommended by a friend. Soooo glad she told me about this place. Outstanding food, healthy, but tantalising to the taste buds. I had a warm quiche with a delicious selection of salad with it, so nice to be able to eat healthy and be full up as well. Cakes looked amazing too. This place is a must... More

It's a straightforward as that...this is my favourite place to eat, no matter the occasion , in fact, if it's a day in Wells I eat at The Good Earth and it's guaranteed that I will feel both Good and Well. If there ever was a chance for a mature women to go on work experience I would be asking... More

Walking through wells and fancied a bite to eat with my dad. What we found was friendly staff exemplary staff that is good for me and the environment with lots of varied dietary requirements met. I was astounded how nice the food was for a modest shop front that meets wells high street.
