Quiche of the day can mean many things but here it means crumbly pastry, a well considered interior and lovely balanced dressing to the rocket. This is a renowned fish restaurant and my partner always finds something luscious. This is one of the few places where one might dare simply to ask for a white wine as accompaniment and find...

I first ate at Goodfellows approximately three years ago, and I was VERY impressed - we visited again last weekend and thoroughly enjoyed the experience - we sat in the small restaurant by the kitchen where you can watch the very professional chefs ply their craft - the menu is inclined towards fish / seafood and some would say, a...

Went with old friends for a catch up after a long time so plenty to talk about. Service was excellent, not intrusive yet attentive. We had the two course lunch deal which was really superb value and absolutely faultless. Gazpacho with crayfish and lobster oil to start followed by sea bass with humus with dukkah spices, aubergines and courgette -... More

Most recent previous visit was September 2015. ( months late and back again. Food very good. Two males serving. Taller one friendly and attentive. Shorter guy (the boss?) a rude and insolent type.

we booked a table 2 weeks before we went, when we got there we were told to choose a table even though the one we had booked was ready for us. The staff there were not really bothered that we had arrived and preceeded to serve the couple that came in behind us a few minutes later. We asked for... More

We went in on spec and had their wonderful light lunch offer - main dish plus glass of wine etc . I thought the quality was excellent and great value . They specialise in fish although on this occasion we did not have that .

My mother and I visited for an impromptu Saturday lunch after a rather rude reception put us off the newly opened Ensemble opposite. I am so happy we chose Goodfellows- although very busy we were warmly welcomed and seated in the small outside area under a cover so the grey skies didn't bother us. We had the 3 course fish...

Top quality meals & very nicely presented, they have some good offers, which are good value. The scallops are lush, and they have a lovely patisserie range.

We booked in advance for a Wednesday evening, but no need since it was very quiet, only three other tables taken. Perhaps it gets busier as the summer season progresses. The service throughout was very polite and attentive. The menu is quite short but offers a set menu option and a la carte. The food was really delicious, we both... More
