If we ever have a special event or just want to go out for a truly exquisite meal, then its to Goodfellows that we go. We are so lucky to have such a talented chef as Adam Fellows in our area. The whole Goodfellows team are welcoming and efficient and I suggest you take a camera to photograph the food... More

I'm a frequent visitor to Goodfellows and have enjoyed every visit. Fantastic mezze, delicious duck, great cassolets. Good choice of wine and all good value. It's our choice of restaurant for celebrations and dinner with friends - my favourite in Wells and the surrounding area.

We are lucky enough to have had several excellent meals at Goodfellows and last week's lunch was another thoroughly enjoyable experience. The food was absolutely delicious and service friendly and efficient. We highly recommend this place and can't wait to return!

We love the restaurant, the intimacy of the tables and the excellent food. We have visited several times and are never disappointed. The food and wine and service are all just right. Thank you!

Cold croissants, icy butter - WHY?? It is not difficult to serve something so simple in the right way. Another one never to return to

We ate at Goodfellows Saturday night, walked in early without a reservation and booked in for a table an hour later the guy we spoke to was super helpful and friendly. Went out for a drink in Wells and came back an hour later, seated near the front of the restaurant which was freezing! We opted for the set menu... More

I came here last year and had to say I was blown away, they raised the bar on what good food meant to me but this isn't a place you can eat at every week, the meals are not cheap but you can see where the money is going, the service, the food and the experience is what your paying... More

Excellent service. Very nice menu at lunch, well plated, attractive, and tasty. A bit cramped and warm in the kitchen/restaurant, so get there early and get a better table!

I could drone on about the attentive, courteous service who seemed genuinely interested in making sure that you had a great night; the perfect timing between courses so you went from 'full' back to 'ready' or the decent prices that provided excellent value for money. However, the best way to describe it was that it was simply the best meal... More

Booked online, got both an email and a text confirmation, we were welcomed at the door, brought through to the restaurant, and seated near the pass, from where we could see some of the food preparation on cctv! My main was a work of pure art - Dali couldn't have presented it better. It showed me I've been overcooking scallops... More
