You will need to book for the Friday/Saturday evenings. Food was good and portions adequate. The staff were very helpful.

This is not a gourmet place. The prices are very high due to the central location. The service was quite good and attentive.

My wife and I visited Goodfellows for lunch. We had not booked but were quickly shown to a table for two. We each had the £10 special offer lunch with a pot of tea for two. It was very nice. The food was well presented, the tea pot was a good size (we each had three cups), service was courteous... More

So sorry - (my old review 2010) seems to have been put up by TripAdvisor instead of a new one from last week - which may appear at some point - but if not it simply stated how excellent everything was - how perfect the fish dishes were - and how delicious all the side dishes were. Annoyed to find... More

We hadn't been here for a while - and more fool us. We had fish throughout and every dish was stunning. The fish of the day was hake, which was incredible, as were the scallops, the prawns and the crab. Everything was so beautifully and carefully presented, everything on the plate worked perfectly together - this is high quality cooking... More

It is not easy to find a restaurant in Wells on a Saturday night but we were pleased that the place was recommended to us and that a table was available. Specialising in fish and a bit on the expensive side.

Went to the NYE dinner at Goodfellows last night. Canapes and champagne on arrival and then the best 5 course meal we've had for a long time. Staff were great, reasonably priced and their hospitality extended into the new year. Highly recommended. Thank you Goodfellows for a memorable evening and we'll see you again very soon.
