We enjoyed a one night stay whilst visiting the area for the Tour de France. We had a superb dinner which was very reasonably priced with excellent service. The room was very good, the bed very comfortable with crisp linen and we had a good night's sleep. The breakfast was excellent (we had full English) with good quality food. We... More

Went for a family meal tonight and everything was spot on. A warm friendly greeting from the owner, the food was lovely, well priced and very tasty. Definitely worth a visit.

On arriving at Red Well Inn there had been a slight error in booking. The manager could not have done enough for us - he did not charge for accommodation nor for breakfast for 4 people. He also said that he would pay for our evening meal for 4 people - very, very generous of him. The rooms are really... More

The food is always to an excellent standard as is the service. The staff are friendly and have a good relationship with regulars as well as new customers. I highly recommend the steak deal and the burgers - delicious!!! Only criticism is the recent price changes.

Stayed for one night, last minute booking. The room was fine for the price - clean and comfortable with lots of hot water and a big TV. The food was beautifully presented and absolutely excellent. The scrambled egg and salmon at breakfast were to die for. Also, the staff were brilliant - very courteous and professional. We were surprised at... More

Went for a Sat night meal with my parent's which was at the end of a new years cottage break away... The red well came recommended by a local friend. Like the previous reviewer noted... It was quiet. But that suited us anyway. I suspect it was the post new year lull. I thought the menu was slightly limited in... More

Called in with my husband on Saturday night for a meal. For a Saturday evening it was very quiet and there was no real atmosphere to the Pub/restaurant. The meal we had was quite well cooked and the accompanying salad and chips were OK but nothing to get too excited about. All in all I would describe it as an... More

Visited the restaurant as our hotel had stopped serving food! Lovely place. Set back a little bit so keep your eyes peeled in the dark. Highly recommend the chicken parmesan and the sticky toffee pudding! Staff were very helpful!
