You can't visit Wells and not eat at the best restaurant in the area. Fabulous food, and fantastic service

Excellent imaginative food beautifully presented by cheerful staff in the upstairs restaurant. All 4 of us loved our meals at lunchtime. We will definitely come back to this privately run, non-chain, restaurant.

Goodfellows Restaurant (there is a restaurant & cafe within the same building) so you have a choice to suit your pocket. I have eaten in both, but it's usually the restaurant I tend to eat in. The same wonderful chef cooks for both. Adam Goodfellow is consistently producing and creating the most wonderful delicious fish dishes. Every time I go... More

Goodfellows is a very special place, unpretentious with quality food and outstatnding staff. I had lunch from a menu of quality fish dishes well prepared and looking very apertising. The presentation of the food, fleshing cooked and prepared in the main dining area is of a very high standard and the staff are very knowledgeable about the dishes on the... More

For those that enjoy French cuisine and particularly sea food, it will be hard to find better. The tasting menu with the matching wine was a really enjoyable experience.

Yet again the food, service and ambience never fails to please. We love this place and every chance we get to be in Wells we always eat here. Last year brought our son who has eaten in various Michelin star places and he rates Goodfellows as his favourite restaurant. Carpaccio of Tuna followed by Scallops perfect. Husband had the Hake...

Although this place does mainly fish, the night we were there they had pheasant on the menu, and we decided to go for that. It was very good, the flavours with the veg and the nut stuffing went very well. We had a very good bottle of Saumur to go with it.

When I say perfect I actually mean perfect - I had the best fish dish ever here recently. A mixed fish dish included Hake, Cod, Sea Bass & Scallop... I have never been a fan of scallop in the past and that's probably because I have never actually had a perfectly cooked one before! If you love fish and haven't... More
