Having recently moved to Abingdon, I've heard a lot of great reviews about The Flowing Well. The food was pretty standard pub grub, the inside of the pub is cute and the staff were all friendly. It is a nice place for a lunch outside in the sun, but the location really lets it down. I wouldn't take anyone that... More

Very cute pub with beautiful surroundings, very welcoming staff and excellent menu. A little pricey but it's good quality. Lovely to sit in the garden in the summer.

Was meant to be meeting friends for lunch, but due to them being useless and getting their days wrong, they failed to show up. To be honest I am not sure they are still my friends. I even had a present for their daughter.... she won't be getting that now. Again I blame her parents.... Anyway on to the pub,... More

Tables in the restaurant area are not too close together which is great - you don't feel hemmed in. I ordered spare ribs which, had I known how big the portion was, I... More
