“Best restaurant in Wells”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2013

We had the best meal of our holiday here. The menu is mainly fish but I had the vegetarian option which was the best ever vegetarian meal I have even had.

We sat at one of the tables by the kitchen and were able to watch the chef preparing the dishes, which was a fascinating and impressive experience. The service was excellent and the food was of an exceptional quality. Can't wait to go back on our next visit to Wells.

“Superb seafood, lovely presentation, excellent service.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2013 via mobile

The seafood is second to none, scallops so succulent and brill nicely done. The gazpacho is a specialty and deserves that status. The bread is perhaps not up to the standard of the rest. Wine is reasonable and good.

“Well worth a visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2013

I have dinner in the Bistro at Goodfellows regularly and would recommend it to everyone.
There is always a good choice on the menu and every dish is fabulous.
The staff are friendly and attentive, the food is well presented and very tasty and the prices are reasonable.
I have tried the lunch menu once and this was also great value and really good to eat.
I haven't tried the Goodfellows Fish restaurant but hear that it is excellent.
If you're in Wells give it a try - you won't be disappointed.

“6 course taster menu - blown away”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2013

Goodfellows was a destination for a celebration. travelling the 30 odd miles from Bristol we checked into the Swan Hotel and spent a couple of pleasant hours in wells. We arrived at Goodfellows, for 8.30. and were pleased to be seated near the open kitchen, which was fantastic, are own chefs table. To see and smell the food, created right next to us was fantastic, and total respect to the team working under the chefs guidance, under a spotlight - all communication professional and descreet. so slick. We were guided through our taster menu through gaspacho, salmon, crevette, sea bass, scallops and dessert, by our host, nothing was too much trouble. Effortless and natural, our 3 hours of gastronomic delight was the best experience for many years. thank you

“Lovely seafood!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2013

We had the tasting menu, which was £58 per head, but it was truly amazing. We started with gazpacho with crayfish tails, then an exquisite salmon ballotine with spice cous cous; grilled prawn, brill and then scallops with pancetta. Finished with an iced parfait with strawberries and toasted almonds. Adam Fellows, owner and head chef creates beautiful dishes in front of you - wholeheartedly recommend!
