We had a meal for 4 on a Saturday night 2 weeks ago. The quality of food and the service were good. We were in the back room which had one large party booking which was quite loud. The menu had plenty of choice and we would go back again

After a long morning and afternoon of rehearsals, needed somewhere to "refuel" for the evening performance. Although we had not reserved a table, the staff accommodated us very quickly, as we went from three people to six in the space of 15 minutes! Meals were very prompt and just right, and very good value too.

Decided last minute that we were going for dinner (5pm) and so looked for restaurants to go to near Abingdon, found The Flowing Well luckily. Staff were very friendly and accommodating. Ordered the half chicken roast from the specials menu it arrived and was a big portion! Chicken was lovely and tender, roast potatoes were very nice and the gravy... More

Reserved a table in the bar (with dog) on Saturday lunch. Lovely wood stove roaring away. Very friendly and welcoming staff and the hand-made pies were really excellent and tasty. A real find.

Nice location in quiet village, dome good walks nearby. Smart dining area with good if not speedy service. Stick to burgers and you will not go far wrong. On pricy side for location and quality.

Beautiful pub, fabulous service and great food. My dog was very welcome and nothing was too much trouble. We felt very welcome and cosy in this Sunday of November. Very Friendly and young bar staff. Easy parking. We will definitely come back.

Another delicious meal, fast becoming the favourite place to eat when visiting our son at school. Today there were 8 of us, the service was good and the food excellent - highly recommend a visit

Probably the best lamb shoulder I've ever had - beautifully cooked and presented. High quality fresh ingredients served in an unpretentious, friendly environment with an excellent selection of ales. Well done flowing well.

The Flowing Well is a little off the beaten track but not difficult to find and relatively easy to get to being just away from the A34 so a good place to meet friends half way. My meal - sea bass with samphire and potatoes in a creamy sauce was certainly tasty. The Czech gentleman who served us our drinks... More

A good old reliable favourite this pub. Pub has been through many changes over the years, but now has had the same owners some 5 years or so, and they get it right every time. Service is excellent, polite not 'in your face', food is good old firm pub favourites done extremely well. Excellent value too, the 3 of us... More
