I'd been here a few times before for a lunchtime burger and a pint, and found it good - so we booked a table for a family evening meal. I can't fault the service or the food (the scotch egg tapas 'starter' is wonderful) although it was on the pricey side. I would certainly think about returning.

I visited today for the first time with a group of 17 of us and the atmosphere was very welcoming. Great food and all served promptly which is quite a feat with so many of us! Will be returning

We have not visited the area for a while and popped into the Flowing Well to see if it was as good as the last visit. We were not disappointed , the food was up to its usual standard. Not a very big menu but enough of a variety to satisfy most needs. There is friendly staff serving well cooked... More

I was lucky enough to get to the Flowing Well twice over the festive season. Both times I was pleasantly surprised by the menu and staff. A good variety of real Ales on tap and a roaring fire greet you as you enter. Food was excellent, though perhaps a touch more variety would have been nice. I shall certainly be... More

I was really impressed with the look of the place, and also pleased to see that the menu had good traditional pub food listed. I choose the ham egg and chips, which arrived nicely presented and was good value. Everybody elses meal looked good too. Good sized... More

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
