Really interesting menu. Staff very friendly & helpful. Great location in the centre of Wells. Food was amazing - I had roast chicken in a chickpea & chorizo broth. Absolutely stunning. My girlfriend had quiche which came with a drink and patisserie for £10 - superb value and very tasty. The tables are near the kitchen area so you can... More

Came upon this place by accident. Bishops palace cafe was overwhelmed, and didn't fancy the dirty table, although the food looked nice. Decided to look for somewhere else and so glad we did. Food and service were excellent, just wish we were staying longer so we could go again. Cannot recommend highly enough - Superb. A must for anyone who... More

Unfortunately we were put on a table for two right next to the kitchen. Didn't even know this seating part existed from the on-line photos! It was good to see the chefs @ work and their expertise is not in question. But table was cramped, the 'main man' was off hand and the menu is actually very limited! We were... More

The food was gorgeous, particularly my main course turbot. We booked a table for two and whilst the staff were not rude they were not particularly warm or friendly even when you tried to talk to them and compared to the staff we encountered at Beah and Cafe Piano they were frosty!. However the food was delicious, hot smoked salmon... More

We visited on Friday, we're so impressed booked again for Saturday. Mainly seafood with a distinct French twist but both the lamb cutlets and the duck confit were superb. Every facet of the meals were excellent. Fine dining at it's best and not too necessarily too hard on the pocket. Recommended.

My partner and I spent one night in the lovely small city of Wells in southwest England, and decided to have our evening meal at Goodfellows (just up the street from our hotel). We chose the rack of lamb with Mediterranean vegetables and dukka spices, and we were both completely satisfied with this dish. Flavour and presentation were tops, as... More

We decided to book a table here for a special evening meal after seeing good reviews and we were not disappointed. While the welcome was perhaps not the best, the food was absolutely outstanding, with a good wine menu to match. Despite the gourmet feel and excellent presentation, the portion sizes aren't stingy. We did feel a little rushed by... More

Good food served with a little bit of an attitude that you are lucky to get a table. The tables are small and the price is top end for what you receive!

We were treated like special guests form the off. My wife asked for a modification to one of their dishes and this was done without demure. The range of dishes should please all palettes, the same applies to the wine. Go there!
