The Owners of The Wishing Well very kindly let me use their venue to host a charity evening for a building project that I am organising in Ghana. Due to the incredible hard work and organisation of Andy the manager and the delicious food and great service from all the welcoming staff the evening was a huge success! I couldn't... More

First impressions were positive and we were not disappointed through the whole experience. The Wishing Well provided Ample parking, beautiful surroundings and a friendly welcome. My daughter and I attended a charity event which included a sumptuous 3 course meal. Serving a multitude of guests one would expect staff to be rushing around and flapping but, the efficiency of management... More

Tried Sunday lunch here and was very pleased. Had a starter and the carvery but a few other a- la carte main dishes available. The dining area was very welcoming and was quite busy which helped the atmosphere. Staff pleasant and efficient. Well worth a visit.

Table and room setting was lovely. Buffet food was great. Table staff were efficient, polite and friendly. Overall a very good New Year to see in 2015. The new owners are doing a great job. Good luck for 2015 and beyond.

Our group of intrepid aviation enthusiasts chose this venue for our Xmas lunch earlier this month. We had a very good communication going with manager Andy before the event, and at the last minute numbers changed and we had a lower number than we started with. This was no problem to Andy who moved tables around and we enjoyed our... More

Having went here Friday night for a meal, I would fully recommend the Wishing Well. The bread with the olives was homemade and came with olive oil and balsamic glaze. I had the venison special, that came with chocolate and raspberry jus, and my partner had steak, which were both cooked to perfection. A lovely atmosphere, and a lovely evening.

This hotel was taken over in May and the new owners are working hard to turn the place around. The refurbishments are of a high standard and very tastefully done. The staff and manager were very helpful and friendly and nothing was to much trouble. We ate in the restaurant in the evening and the food was superb with a... More

a fairly pleasant. Place but very little ambience, only twelve people eating when we were there.the food was standard pub grub but a meal for four, (main course only) and two pints each cost nearly £70.00, took a long time coming too. There are far better restaurants within the area half the price and just as good .

We had a nice stay at the Wishing Well, the room and bathroom was a bit small but clean, tidy and comfortable. The staff and manager were pleasant and friendly although the manager at times, in the evening, seemed very rushed and a bit stressed, (apparently some staff had not turned up) he still seemed under pressure in the morning...

Nice quiet location but bedroom was very tired and worn with a seventies bright blue toilet suite. I understand that an improvement programme is in place which is very much needed. Restaurant was quite busy and menu looked OK but food was disappointing. Soup and main course were microwaved and therefore some of it was extremely hot and the rest... More
