By chance, our one day in Wells was Bastille Day, and the set menu suited us perfectly. The "gluten-Free" member of our party was delighted with her special option. Finally, amongst the house wines a wonderful Southern France Pinot Noir was outstanding value.
Superb food as always! A pleasure to eat fresh and well-presented dishes.
Outstanding food as usual, expertly cooked and presented.
We look forward to our visits. Never fails. Food is innovative and imaginative. Outstanding value all round which makes for a wonderful dining occasion.
Food was outstanding in every course. Waitresses very attentive and friendly. Nice quiet, intimate restaurant at lunchtime.
Had the gazpacho and scallops, and absolutely loved every bite. Will continue coming here in the future!
Fantastic food and service! Absolutely wonderful! Can’t wait to go back. The confit duck was delicious and the chocolate walnut cake was out of this world!
Great discovery. Superb cooking, inventive with top quality ingrédients. All for a very reasonable price.
Brilliant evening fantastic food and service I would recommend to anyone who appreciates fine dining
Service cool to start, but did improve.
The place is rather run down and needs some TLC, old fashioned decor. More like a cafe than a fine dining restaurant.
Food ok, not memorable. Very expensive for what we had, 2 courses, 2 glasses of wine and a Diet Coke came to just over £70 without tip. The scallop starter was very small. We ate at lunch time. Definitely not value for money.
I wouldn’t return or recommend.
The £11 lunch is great value- delicious fish cake with a glass of house wine then a beautiful patisserie.
Excellent seafood and other choices! Warm and friendly welcome and brilliant service! A true favourite! And I love watching Adam Fellows cook. A must if you haven't been there yet!
Just so helpful. Wonderful food and marvellous service
Excellent choice of dishes. The scallops were fresh, tasty and reasonably priced - cooked superbly.
We had good food, excellent service, a pleasant ambiance, really all we could want for an enjoyable evening out.
Delicious food and attentive staff. A lovely atmosphere.
This French Bistro-style restaurant had a reassuringly limited Sunday menu with some imaginative looking choices. The vegetarian options were very tasty but the duck was disappointingly tough. The service was efficient though not particularly warm or welcoming and there appeared to be only one choice of white wine available which is unacceptable these days. I thought this was a fairly average and pricey meal overall.
We had a lovely lunch and a thoroughly enjoyable time. The food and the service were as much as anyone could ask for.
An excellent meal, prepared brilliantly and served well. The ambiance is good and struggles to be great but no fault of the staff/management. Will certainly return and look forward to it.
Excellent dinner. The restaurant is fairly small and a bit crowded but the food was well above expectations. Price was reasonable for food and wine. Do not be put off by the outside of this restaurant or the oddly confusing menu in the window. The menu at the table has very good selection.
Delicious food with a great selection of wines, service is quirky and to be taken not to seriously, a good experience.
The food, as always was excellent. It’s one of our favourite restaurants to visit and is equally as fantastic at lunch time. It really is a gem in Wells and we can’t remember what we did before it opened. The bread and hummus is fantastic and everybody enjoyed everything they ate. The puddings and cakes they do are always outstanding. We had a very noisy table in the main dining area with us, and it was a shame our table wasn’t out by the kitchen, even though we had booked ahead and we were celebrating my daughters birthday. The main dining room is a little bit cold, but nothing a jacket didn’t sort out. Like I said, the food is of outstanding quality, and everybody ate everything.
We were given a table right at the back tucked away in a corridor beyond the main restaurant. My advice would be to ask for your table to be in the front restaurant which is light and airy although the tables are very close together. Our waiter seemed appalled when I asked for chips to go with my 13-year-old son’s meal. They apparently ‘don’t do chips’ I sensed I’d really offended the waiter for even asking. Saying that, The food itself was excellent and had we been sitting in the main restaurant and had we not asked for chips perhaps we would have had a better dining experience .
Very good food and service. Authentic French cuisine. Excellent wines.
Great atmosphere, Delicious food and professional service. Scallop dish to die for and perfectly coocked Lamb 😋
I booked for a Birthday celebration plus pre-'Mothering Sunday' visit. All 4 of us enjoyed a lovely hot meal, choice of drinks, sweet plus good care & service. If there was anything that I would like added it would be some handrails & 'drop down' rail to assist those with disabilities in the toilet.
Delicious food - good buzz in the restaurant. I was seated at the door through which the food was brought and at times it was chilly - a minor quibble though as everything else was perfect - will definitely visit regularly
Best meal we've had for ages!! We were staying in Wells for pnly two days and booked lunch for our first day based on other recommendations. Food was absolutely great and not only was the service good but obviously a number of those lunching were regulars with some of whom we had short amiable chats - we regualrly dine in restaurants nut virtually never get into conversation with anyone. But this was a very pleasant change,we assume not only due to the ambience but also the happiness derived from eating such grest food at such reasonable prices.
Excellent food as always. Good atmosphere and good service. You won't find a netter restaurant in the area.
As always, a lovely evening with wonderful food, excellent service and I learn something new about wine every time I visit.
Reports of Goodfellows were encouraging on TA so decided to book. Excellent two course fish lunch with glass of white wine. Will definitely return on our next visit to Wells.
Fine dining in a casual atmosphere at its best. The 5 course tasting menu for £50 per person was outstanding and value for money. Service was excellent, and we were offered delicious bread all through our dinner. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
Very cold - in terms of actual room temperature, service and ambiance!
Very unwelcoming hosts.
Lack luster service and food.
Save your money - it's not cheap and it's not worth it!
Excellent quality of ingredients and a menu that was creative and brilliant.
We have eaten in Goodfellows on a number of occasions and it never fails to please. On this occasion we had friends visiting from London and we all enjoyed our food. My friend remarked that the food would stand up to anything he had eaten in London. We shall return!
I have been here several times and always enjoy the food. It is particularly good for fresh fish, beautifully cooked to preserve the texture and flavour. The patisseries are also notable!
The atmosphere is intimate and personal. If you sit in the rear of the restaurant, you can observe the food as it is passed through for serving, which adds to the excitement.
The staff are very polite and friendly.
Location-wise, it is excellently placed for central Wells but not at all noisy or affected by the busy market.
Absolutely superb in every way. Top class cooking, fabulous presentation, with delightful service.
A weekday spur-of-the-moment lunch for me and my partner. A lovely welcome, even though we had not eaten there for 6 months. Small menu with a number "light dishes" but we both chose a main course - scallops and 4-fish - both of which were utterly delicious and well-presented. All in all, Goodfellows hit the button, yet again.
Great food, fantastically cooked from fine ingredients. So lucky to have such excellent French cuisine in Wells. Bistro accommodation is a bit cramped, but the food more than makes up for it.
