Squashed like sardines

The food was okay, although limited for a vegan. However, after joining a long queue it was like eating in a busy corridor with people bumping against you. Drinks were very limited.
It certainly should not describe itself as a restaurant; a self-service cafe is more accurate.
I would not return as I prefer to eat in a modicum of comfort and space.

Pros: Friendly staff
Cons: Lack of space., Limited vegan options.

I visited Wells and this cafe for the first time yesterday with friends. It's a nice looking cafe. Queueing for the food we were constantly in people's way, it's very crammed by the till. It's not hugely clear how the place works. I had the vegan suitable red curry which was tasty but there weren't loads of vegan options but maybe they don't get many vegans as when I asked if it was suitable the lady looked a bit confused like it was an unfamiliar word. There were a couple of vegan cake options- date flapjacks etc but I didn't try these. Overall pleasant.

Pros: tasty curry, nice looking cafe
Cons: feels a little crammed in queue to order, more vegan options would be nice

Lunch in a sun-lit room on Saturday morning

We were pleased to discover The Good Earth during our spontaneous trip to Wells while visiting Bath. We stepped in here for a quick lunch. We sat upstairs in a sun-lit room with lots of mirrors and pieces of art on the wall. We had Moroccan vegetable tagine with couscous and black bean enchiladas with rice. Overall we enjoyed our meal here.

Friendly place to eat

Good food and a friendly, pleasant atmosphere in which to eat it. A deceptively large cafe spread across a rambling labyrinth of rooms and a courtyard garden. Narrow corridors make navigating to your table quite difficult when busy. Food often sells out early, so don't expect much variety after the lunch rush. Slightly over-priced.

Pros: good food, friendly, nice atmosphere
Cons: squashed, often sells out early, slightly expensive

limited vegan options

really nice ambience,always busy, problem we have had on several occaisions is sometimes the vegan meal on offer is served with a non vegan potato or salad and unfortunatly no alternative but to pay more to have a jacket potato with it or bread, no deduction made for not having the set side dish and no flexibility to make sure you get a fair vegan option, the food you do get is always really nice, staff seem a bit stressed serving so many people in such a tiny serving space and customers seem to get a bit irate squashing past each other,also lots of mums and buggies seem to pick this place to settle down, probably for convenience but it does make it tricky sometimes,petrified of dropping my tray on a little un,lots of space throughout,lovely garden area, well worth a visit.

Pros: attractive, good food, outside eating
Cons: stressful getting served , needs a bit more flexibility with vegan
