My husband and I were in Wells for the morning and visited Goodfellows for lunch recently. We ordered the plate of English cheeses with home made organic spelt bread and walnut bread.
The waiter showed us to a table and gave us a menu. He did not even give us time to sit down before getting his pen and pad ready to take the order for food. We paused to look at the menu for a minute or so and he "tutted" and said he would come back if we couldn't make our minds up.
On arrival to our table, I couldn't believe how thin the bread was - in fact we couldn't understand how they managed to cut it that thin - it would not have been possible with even the best of bread knives. The only thing I can imagine they used was a supermarket ham slicer. The 4 portions of cheese were also extremely thin and very small in size. There wasn't even a portion of Cheddar cheese which suprised us no end as we are in the middle of the West Country - arguably one of the best Cheddar producing counties in the country.
With a soft drink each, the total for this minute portion of food was £18. We both felt thoroughly ripped off and paid the bill without even leaving a tip (this is the first time we have ever done this, despite being very keen foodies and restaurant visitors).
