There are many and varied places to eat out in the lovely Somerset cathedral city of Wells. A good number of the restaurants are independent and some have become so popular that it is often advisable to book in advance.
Dishes range from traditional English, Indian, Italian, Mediterranean – whatever your taste you are likely to find a restaurant serving your favourite food.
For example, Beah in Union Street, offers a mixture – traditional English as well as Mediterranean – so you can’t really go wrong. Here you can enjoy local steaks and mouth-watering Sunday roasts, or if your taste is more exotic you can sample tagines, cous cous and pastilla. Vegetarians are also well catered for..
If you are a vegetarian there is nothing to beat the range of dishes available at The Good Earth on Priory Road, which has had some outstanding reviews.
As its name suggests Cafe Piano has live music on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings. Fully licensed this Wi-fi internet Cafe situated in the Heritage Courtyard on Sadler Street is open for lunch and dinner.
Take a stroll down Sadler Street and you will find Goodfellows’ chef Adam Fellows and his team cooking modern European food, including fish caught off the Cornish and Devon coast.

For seven years he was head chef in a Michelin-starred country house hotel in Somerset.
