Promising to visit Goodfellows together for a long time. Not disappointed. My Brill, with peas, mash and lardons was simply delicious and my Husband's meal of duck was declared lovely. We both had a patisserie to follow - who wouldn't! A tarte au citron and an Opera cake for me was so delightful. My meal was inclusive of a glass... More

Amazing entrees and desserts. Lunch was a selection of fresh salads, fresh fish, and local meats. Very nice wine selection.

Great service, great wines, great bread, great ambience ( by kitchen) plus excellent food. Starters were excellent; elegant, flavourful and well balanced - gazpacho with crayfish, smoked salmon and Brixham crab and gurnard; no complaints from anyone and beautifully presented. Mains, all four of us had hake with a caper and champagne sauce - pomme purée, samphire; absolutely delicious. Desserts... More

The food at Goodfellows never fails to delight. It's difficult to find enough superlatives, though words such as excellence, perfection and outstanding spring to mind. On our latest visit for dinner, three of us had the 5 course meal, and each course was absolutely superb. The fourth member of our party ate a la carte, and was as pleased with... More

Visited here with my family on our holiday recently. Fantastic food! Lovely to have such an up market restaurant in such a little city! Lovely modern atmosphere, nice open kitchen watching the chefs at work! My only criticism would be the portion sizes.. But that is the only fault I could find. I'd recommend a visit if ever in the...

We were in Wells for a family visit and went on the strength of the reviews here - we were not disappointed! An evening meal for three brought out one sea bass dish, one scallops dish and a beef dish - all were excellent and well presented. The desserts were to die for - superb is the only word I... More

Being local to Wells, I often pop into Goodfellows for breakfast or lunch on a Saturday. The choice of food is great, always something to to tempt your taste buds, including the pastries which are out of this world. I think between myself, my wife and two children, we have tried all of them. Dinner is also a must, especially,... More

We loved Goodfellows - really excellent food at a reasonable price, with attentive service and a reasonably priced wine list. We will certainly return.
