The Flowing Well
It has been sympathetically refurbished adding warmth and colour to give a welcoming relaxed feel. We'd like you to think of it as home from home. After all it is the pub of a thousand locals. You can be one of them!
We serve good honest food, as seasonal and local as possible. We don't skimp on quality, freshness or flavour. Our selection of burgers is legendary. Our pies are phenomenal and our British tapas are on everybody's lips!
We will serve you well at The Well.

Great food, service was on point. Really lovely pub!
What a great place, we'll be going to the Flowing Well more often.
A great night meeting up with friends for a catch up. The food was excellent and the service perfect. We will be back.
Another great meal. The chef got the steak for the steak platter spot on - proper medium rare. I’ve had steaks in much more expensive restaurants where they haven’t managed that. Everyone enjoyed the food and the service was friendly.
Lovely to see it busy , happy laughter and people enjoying themselves.
Great food and lovely staff
Very welcoming staff. Had good knowledge of the menu.
Hit the spot - the bacon and brie bap was particularly good.
Staff were welcoming and friendly. The food was very good - tasty and well presented.
Never disappointed always top service and amazing food in a friendly and relaxing environment.
Unfortunately ran out of beef but the lamb was amazing. Always a great place to eat & drink.
Excellent Sunday lunch for group of four, we were originally given a high table with stools, but once I explained that we had two aged people in our group and were happy to sit outside, all was sorted.
Excellent shoulder of lamb, with huge Yorkshire pudding and perfectedly cooked vegetables. Service was good and polite, despite many other customers.
Warning - make certain you book (via Opentable), rather than just turn up and being disappointed - we did see at least two group unable to be catered for.
Parking can get a little crowded, we were in a diabled space and had a car parked very close behind us, which meant quite a few backward and forward movements, with people at each corner of the car to ensure nothing got hit.
Great pub, excellent food, friendly staff, great value for money, definitely go back 10/10
Food and service was excellent and a nice Pub as well
Very good service staff friendly and attentive
Enjoyed the evening very much
Many since my last visit a nice surprise
A very nice meal the steak sharing is great we have had it before. Uor friend loved the Atomic Burger. Service was very good.
Very enjoyable meal as always. The friendly and attentive staff are a big reason why we enjoy this venue.
One minor bit of feedback is that I’m not sure what benefit there is in indicating it was our anniversary as part of the opentable booking process. I got the impression nobody at the restaurant was aware.
Excellent and great service. Will be back, thank you!
Great place for Sunday lunch. Trad dishes are a bit pricey but there are plenty of other choices. Outside is pleasant in sun with parasols and the staff are excellent - efficient and courteous.
Lime & soda had to be replaced as the lime was past its best (waitress confirmed the line bottle had needed changing).
An enquiry as to whether the burger roll was likely brioche or not wasn't known but waitress said it was a "floury" one and not brioche. A brioche roll arrived.
The 2 x fish & chips diners agreed they were not the best they'd had and tasted greasy. Only 1 out of the 4 meals deemed lovely.
Been several times before and always been good but not the best of visits this time around.
Great service. Good food. Will definitely be going again.
Would like say Big Thank You for staff and there friendly service and dedication that they put in for my son's birthday bash. Food was lovely. Nothing wasn't to much trouble. I would recommend friends and family to pay a visit at your pub The Flowing Well.
The Flowing Well is off the beaten track in the hamlet of Sunningwell. Found the pub through the Coeliac Society website as my partner and a visiting friend both required gluten free, vegetarian dishes. We all ordered the Sunday roast. Yum! And there were gluten-free Yorkshire puddings! My partner and I went back for dinner the next day, which says it all really.
Service and food absolutely amazing real friendly staff and no waiting staff even managed to change our table at the last minute will definitely re visit!
We had the steak platter and it was really good. They have an extense menu and everything looked very nice. Staff were friendly and approachable. Recommended.
Everything was very nice but there was an intermittent smell from the toilets (we were seated in bar area)
Fabulous food and lovely staff
We ate lunch outside. Excellent service and very good food. Will go again.
Well, well, well, what a great discovery! Great lunch, great staff, great location, what's not to love?! I had fish n chips and my brother had the burger, both delicious. I'm particularly impressed that despite booking about 30 mins before arriving (and then arriving earlier than our booking time), the team were totally ready and had a great table reserved for us.
Excellent staff very friendly nothing too much trouble. We had steak platter for 3, absolutely delicious and huge. Lovely atmosphere and reasonable prices, definitely recommend. 10/10
Food was expensive for what it was nothing special. Customer service was horrific the people hardly spoke took about half hour to get served even though we were the 2nd table lot of staff busy chatting pub was dead. Wouldnt go again.
We sat outside as we had two dogs with us and weather was nice. Beyween 6 of us we ordered ribs, chicken burgers, monkfish, pie and a pizza. Food was good, although a mixup with our order meant one person had to wait for their pizza while the rest of us ate which wasn’t ideal. We weren’t offered an explanation. We had a nice table outside and service was friendly.
Lovely meal but there were a ton of flying ants within the bar area and this ruined my evening. Food was lovely and hot always tasty.
Sunday lunch was delicious
Nice food and good value served on a nice patio in front of the pub.
Always a pleasure to visit. Delicious food - vegetable Penang curry 👌🏻
The food and service are always amazing
The Flowing Well is a Pub with a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Food was excellent and staff very friendly. We took our 5 month old Cocker Spaniel with us a d this is a genuine dog friendly PH. Would definitely go again.
Great food, friendly staff, lovely atmosphere, would recommend.
Back dining area a little too noisy; but lovely food & good customer service
