Ample parking. Friendly welcoming staff who greeted us as we walked in and showed us to a table immediately. The Menu was quite good with a few extra specials available. Order for food and drink taken quickly and there was no real wait for it all to be delivered to the table. The food was really tasty. Would definitely go... More

Visited with friends for Saturday evening meal, nice interior and has been done up well. Really good service and very attentive. Nice English spin on tapas starters, not really sure what I think of an English pub doing them. Trying to be trendy and would rather have proper starter. Burger for main and husband had a pie. Really good winter... More

This is our second review of the Flowing Well and our earlier good impression was reinforced and improved on. We were here for a midweek lunch. A very attractive pub/restaurant, a fairly interesting menu at decent prices, very friendly staff and atmosphere added up to an extremely pleasant experience. The white onion soup and feta salad were extremely tasty and... More

After visiting the pub twice both occasions I've been extremely impressed with both the service and the food. The food menu is quite selective to a few dishes but the quality and portion of the food more than makes up for it. The service we received at our table was very quick, prompt and polite with the staff extremely friendly.... More

This pub has certainly turned a corner from the previous owner. I have lived in the village for 29 years plus and this is certainly the best it's ever been. Friendly service and good food, what more can I say.

The food came quickly and was well presented. Everyone said they enjoyed it and my burger was very pleasant. I did... More

this is my 2nd review. This time we were all very happy with service and food. Sunday roast was substantial and very tasty, so was roast sea bass. Menu is a bit small (only one salad) and the pub is still not cheap (nearly 4£ for a pint of lager) but you pay for the setting as well. We'll definitely... More

We had Sunday lunch with the family. The staff were friendly and the service was good. We shared a few starters which were very good. The main courses were all very tasty and well cooked. The portion sizes are very big so if you are not very hungry you may want to share. Even the small fish and chips was... More
