    We eat here regularly and always enjoy it. The service is friendly without being unduly familiar, very professional, the menu is interesting and innovative (but could do with slightly more frequent changes), the food is great and the portions huge, prices are moderate for the great quality. Then special offer days are fantastic. A gem!

    Excellent service and excellent food. The waitress izy was so helpful when we asked if we could choose our table and chairs because I have back problems and need certain seating. Winter whose name I didn't get was so attentive and yet not overly so. It really could not have been a better experience.

    Really delicious food, the burgers were so tasty and the pudding was homemade.The chips were very special, with a touch of truffle. The coleslaw was homemade too. A varied menu to choose from and the different offers are very good value. Loved the open fire, it was a very cold day. The staff were so friendly and we felt very well looked after. We will be back. Thank you!

    A nice out of the way place. There was sufficient parking. You walk into a very atmospheric reception/bar area which also has dining facilities. There are two parts to the restaurant & we sat in the bright & airy annex. The service was quick & the servers were attentive & very pleasant. The food was good & the portions were more than sufficient. A good overall experience.

    It could be potentially nice for summer when seating in their garden with glass of beer and a snack. I love countryside and that is why we did choose the place for pre Christmas family gathering. I have initially ordered the pie. They had no pie left. So we ended with turkey roast which was a disaster. Watery veggies, everything soaked in gravy including Yorkshire pudding. Plates was overloaded , presentation - speachless. My 10 year old could cook a better meal. I was afraid to order a desert so we skipped it. If you plan your Christmas roast search for alternative solution unless they have different chef available. We were there on Sunday evening. The place itself is very cosy with historical spice which I love. It deserves excellent food. The second waitress who served us was very nice (long blond hair).

    Excellent menu choices, orders taken and food arrived promptly. Even though it was busy our table was well looked after by the staff. Ascwete all the other tables. Absolutely love this pub. We had travelled from Mid Kent, Dartford and Berkshire. The Well House is ideally situated for our family get-togethers.

    We'd booked for 7pm but due to train delays didn't turn up until 8.45pm. The staff were so friendly and helpful, no problems at all. The food was fantastic, two of us had steak and the other pork. We would highly recommend the Well house.

    Friendly service and delicious food as always, washed down with a delicious pint of Shere Drop (my favourite!) I recommend asking for a seat in the pub part of the restaurant rather than the conservatory as the pub is more ‘cosy’, but would be happy to book either again!
