Small, friendly, local pub. Very reasonable Fish Friday prices. We ordered a burger, BLT and fish. Food was served quickly and tasted very fresh. Don't recommend the Bloody Mary though. Tasted like the typical bar mix. Not a fresh V8.

Typical local bar scene. Offer food but it takes forever to get it...because after we ordered, the waitress talked with other clients about local events then went to prepare our order.

I'd call The Wishing Well a little honey hole. Small local bar, with a great Friday Fish Fry for lunch or dinner. Love the perch and haddock. Very reasonable and large portions.
