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!

This place was unbelievable, as the front of house staff did not know what they were doing. When we arrived, we asked if there was a table available and were told that because the restaurant was busy there as no free table. We were advised that if we came back in half an hour then we should be able to... More

Set meal with three options only for starter, main and dessert. Why don't more restaurants to this instead of the more common attempt of trying to do too much but less well? Ingredients were first class, beautifully cooked and with friendly, efficient staff.

We went to Goodfellows for lunch last week, whilst on holiday in Somerset. This is a nice bistro style eatery , with an excellent menu and a good wine list. The food is freshly prepared and of a high standard, we were impressed . Service is also very good and I feel that you will really enjoy your food here.

Dined here as part of a special occasion and whilst the décor could probably do with a face lift it is more than compensated for by the quality of the food. The five course fish tasting menu at £48 was great value for money. Each dish was stunningly presented and beautifully cooked. The service was friendly and efficient and the... More

We booked online to have dinner at this recommended seafood restaurant, when we got there they had been trying to ring us to say it was a special theme night - Lebanese, and were we OK with this. We decided to stay and enjoyed a very good and very filling five course banquet.. My husband had the matching flight of... More

Went for dinner recently (September 2016) on a Thursday evening. It was busy and glad we booked. Started with sharing bread and olives, then cod croquettes which were delicious. My main of scallops was perfect and I found room for a lovely bavarois for pud. All very very nice although just a bit too salty for my palate. Service was... More

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel and it is really cute with good service. This is the thing though. We got the venison and there was a good portion of meat, maybe 4 strips of parsnip and I would be surprised if the mashed potato was more than a tablespoon, all smothered in gravy. The turbot was adequate but... More
