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.

A good experience. Food well presented though menu limited. Service excellent:
Good mix of choices on the menu
Perfect for a pub meal. They don’t over complicate things and produce lovely food quickly and with good service.
Me and my significant other have been to the Flowing Well over 20 times during our relationship and have never experienced a bad meal. The food always hits the spot, the service and staff are always very friendly and accommodating! Whenever we leave we’ve always got in our minds that it won’t be long until we return.
Food was great, slightly
Limited on choice. Only one salad on the menu but the food we had was very nice and portions were huge!
Service was great, outdoor seating is picturesque and plenty of parking. Good lunch all round.
Delicious meal sat outside. Would really recommend, great choice on the menu
Very Good, As a hot day we sat in a shaded area & was pleasantly cool considering the weather, we had a lovely evening and the service was very good
Just a short walk from Abingdon this pub feels deep in the countryside. Friendly staff and good outdoor seating area makes this a lovely place to meet friends of celebrate with a special lunch.
Simple menu done well. If you want a better than average gastropub burger, the Atomic Pig is very good but order the hot sauce on the side
Nice food and good service, would certainly recommend.
Big fans of the Flowing Well and this time it didn't disappoint. Great service, food and value. Will definitely be back
We always come here for Work meals. Great Value and Service. Very quiet, however it was a Monday Lunchtime.
Service slow even thought indoors was empty
But food always amazing
Food was good staff were very attentive.I find the dining area quite dark.Would also like to see staff more smartly dressed,which would reflect better on the good service they provided.
I have visited here before many times and thoroughly enjoyed my visits however this time the food was disappointing.
One of our party got lost and was late, and the staff were unfazed. Decent food, inside but plenty of ventilation. We enjoyed ourselves.
Another lovely meal. My only comment would be that the pastry on the pie was a little hard.
Helpful staff, plenty of places to sit. Good service, but our food took almost an hour to arrive and two were salads. The food was fresh and presented nicely. The Fish and Chips was excellent, and the Caesar salads were good but there was one rasher of bacon (slightly overcooked) included and a lot of ice berg lettuce. I would recommend the pub to other people and we will visit again. Thank you.
Had a great time the staff were friendly and helpful. Service was quick and there was no waiting about to pay the bill this time, lovely afternoon! 😀
Delicious bavette steak for 4 , in fact 3-4 is enough for 5 reasonable diners
My parents are in their 70’s, they have been worried about going out for a meal. They felt safe and comfortable. Thank you
Lovely food.Really good service. Staff very pleasant.
Extremely disappointed that the 'soup of the day' was already unavailable at 12.45!
Also, the lack of options for people that do not enjoy spiced food and also have special dietary restrictions was unexpected.
This visit was not up to the usual standard and can only hope that the menu is updated before my next planned visit.
We all enjoyed our visit to The Flowing Well. The food and the service were very good.
Great food, quick service and not to expensive. You can't say fairer than that.
Steak sharing plater is soooo good!!
Welcoming, attentive staff (visited early evening on 27 June). Staff couldn't do enough for us but were not intrusive or pushy. Delicious Sunday roast beef and gorgeous pudding. It almost felt like things are back to normal! Always lovely at the Flowing Well.
Fantastic as usual . Can’t beat the Roasts here in Sunday’s .
Great food, beautiful little space and really good atmosphere
Lovely way to spend a Friday evening with friends.
I went as a party of 6 and was welcomed warmly on arrival . We were shown to an outside table and drink orders taken immediately.
A menus was provided within 5 minutes of arrival. 3 mins before our orders were ready we shown to our in restaurant table. The meals was delivered and we all thoroughly enjoyed our own choices.
We didnt have puddings but did have coffee.
The staff were attentive and polite.
We would all recommend the Flowing Well as a place to go .
Relaxed, nice atmosphere. Friendly staff. Good food. Absolutely excellent beer.
Absolutely fantastic. Best burger in Oxfordshire. Lovely staff.
Disappointing service and food and won't be returning soon.
A bit of a long wait for food - pizzas but all good once they arrived.
tables could have been cleaner, not all staff in masks when they approached the table.
Sauces in sachets rather that individual dishes.
Would recommend the food although pricey for what it was............
Dining with friends (one of whom is a coeliac) we found the service and food were very good. We opted for a seat by the window as the light levels at some tables are quite dark.
We came to the flowing well for Father’s Day lunch, the food was amazing! The chocolate brownie was something else the best chocolate brownie I have ever had. Service was great which just made the lunch even better. Will defiantly be back!
I can't recommend the food and the service highly enough, speedy service and excellent portion sizes. We all went home very happy and very full!
Very impressed with the Flowing well, would highly recommend to anyone who is thinking of going. The food was fantastic and the presentation was good aswell. Friendly staff, and reasonable prices. Very impressed.
