The building had great atmosphere and the food wholesome and tasty. What a shame that there are no menus on tables and that the counter service system puts people under pressure to order from unfamiliar items, in a rush, with a queue of people waiting behind. Easy if you've been before but not so easy if you're new to the... More

A great place for lunch. A fabulous array of vegetarian dishes to choose from all freshly prepared. We had soup and quiche and both were delicious.

I wanted to love this place, I took out a soup and garlic bread, both delish! I'm a vegan, and anyone else who lives a vegan diet, knows how hard it is find somewhere healthy to eat. Sadly, the pew seating in this place, means that couples take up four seats, when sitting separately. I would have loved to be... More

Always a pleasure to visit Wells but eating here makes it even better. Lovely selection of fresh food, really inventive and tasty. Wish it was open longer but when it's gone - it's gone! Their garlic bread is a must-have.

I've been coming here for years. Guaranteed a tasty, healthy meal. It's not a big place so it can be a bit squished, not good for the physically impaired. Nice courtyard to sit outside in good weather.

The Good Earth is the only restaurant in Wells where you can be served honest wholesome vegetarian food. There is always an excellent choice of dishes from soup and jacket potatoes to tagines, curry, and quiches, and a great selection of fresh salads. It is advisable to get there early for lunch as a queue will form and the choices... More

Can get very busy especially on market days (Wednesday and Saturday) so be prepared for queues. However, food is wholesome and delicious; only vegetarian but good variety and very tasty! Also, good value for reasonable portions. Often eat there😄

Visited here on numerous occasions as vey local to us. Food is always nicely presented, tasty and the price is reasonable too. Beware if you visit at lunch time as it can be a bit of a stampede and queue to get served, down side is if you don't find and hold and claim a table by way of bags... More

Only had soup and a date slice - but they were yummy. Rest of lunch food looked delicious too! If I lived nearby, I'd be in there a lot... wish someone would open something similar near to where I live! Good atmosphere; reasonable prices; worth a detour.
