Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Beautiful Victorian Wellhead, Interesting legend, although perhaps needing better verilfication. The placards tell the official story.
(An alternative explanation for the Maharajah's generosity might be that he was cocking a snook at his Imperial overlords, by pointing out the deplorable abject poverty of Stoke Row!)

Firstly finding it was tricky. Check out road it’s near to and use that.
It has a fascinating history, along with the history of why and how this deep well was built. Theres a nearby small area to walk and again a small hill with a carved Indian elephant on top. Did this on a warm sunny day and also noted how well maintained it was

It's a very short stop but kind of quaint. If you're passing its worth it otherwise I'd wait till you are.

Always used to visit as a child as it’s very local to me and i loved it. Would definitely recommend to families that like to get the outdoors and could combine it with a walk etc.

What a surprise. Haven’t visited for ~30 years. A lovely clean and tidy place to stop and read about the Well. Had a lovely little picnic here from the store 2 mins walk away.

It's only really worth a quick stop and it's certainly not a major tourist spot. However it's not something you'd expect to find in an Oxfordshire village and it's interesting to learn the story behind it (there are information boards). The well head has been restored in the last few years and looks very ornate and clearly Indian in design.

Stopped at stoke row which is a delightful village. Took time to see Maharajahs well which is 150 years old. Interesting story of why the well was built and pleased to say well is maintained in good order. Worth a visit and also the surrounding orchard which is very peaceful.
