So sorry - (my old review 2010) seems to have been put up by TripAdvisor instead of a new one from last week - which may appear at some point - but if not it simply stated how excellent everything was - how perfect the fish dishes were - and how delicious all the side dishes were. Annoyed to find... More

We hadn't been here for a while - and more fool us. We had fish throughout and every dish was stunning. The fish of the day was hake, which was incredible, as were the scallops, the prawns and the crab. Everything was so beautifully and carefully presented, everything on the plate worked perfectly together - this is high quality cooking... More

It is not easy to find a restaurant in Wells on a Saturday night but we were pleased that the place was recommended to us and that a table was available. Specialising in fish and a bit on the expensive side.

Went to the NYE dinner at Goodfellows last night. Canapes and champagne on arrival and then the best 5 course meal we've had for a long time. Staff were great, reasonably priced and their hospitality extended into the new year. Highly recommended. Thank you Goodfellows for a memorable evening and we'll see you again very soon.

Thank you to all at Goodfellows for opening your restaurant on a Sunday night especially for seventeen family guests prior to our daughter's wedding. Everyone agreed that the food was outstanding and the wines well matched. Service was excellent and our guests really enjoyed the brief explanation of each course. We booked the meal having sampled the tasting menu only... More

We have been lucky enough to eat at this restaurant a number of times but this was our first lunchtime. It was busy and the menu a set price according to the number of courses chosen. Services was as good as usual and the food absolutely delicious. The starters were beautifully presented and everything tasted wonderful. Three of the table... More
