“A great place to eat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 March 2014

I visited this pub with my wife mid week just to get out and found The Well a very nice change from the pubs in Devizes. the staff were all smartly dressed, welcoming and polite. There is a varied menu at reasonable price with large portions.Like most pubs the drinks are what I feel are expensive which you can't get away from but In this pub it's worth it.

“Would definitely return”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 March 2014

Went for lunch with my wife on a cold December saturday, and the place was warm, welcoming and had a great fire. Very nice modern clean decor. Great selection of wine, ales, ciders, spirits and a great whisky selection. One of the best deserts we have ever had was on offer, a mixture of three dishes. Do yourself a favour, and go and enjoy a great lunch at this place.

“Good Sunday Lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 March 2014

Visited with family for a Sunday Lunch. Seated immediately on arrival and were politely served with drinks and good food. A fairly traditional Sunday Lunch which was well presented and generous. All round very nice, although if I could add one criticism the roast potatoes were rather tough and could hardly be sliced. In fact my elderly parents found it impossible!

However that is not to distract from a nice lunch and good Timothy Taylors IPA.

“Simply outstanding”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 March 2014

My family and I visited-on the 1st March, we booked a table for 7pm, we arrived 10 minutes early, the landlady was welcoming and told us she was just rearranging our seating to give us more room. We ordered drinks, sat on comfy sofas by the log burner (very welcome as it was a chilly night!) and were given menus to choose from. FANTASTIC MENU. My 11 daughter is a bit of a fusspot with food, the landlord overheard us suggesting different foods and said he could arrange for things not on the menu for her, this cheered her and us up. Very thoughtful. We were showed to our table the waitress was lovely, we had tapas to start which was delicious. My 11 year old decided on chicken curry, when it arrived she declared it the best she has eaten and asked if they did take away! The 4 Adult meals were all superb from the enormous burger, perfectly cooked steak, tender pork loin stuffed with apricots and yummy duck breast. Puddings are perfect and good portions! Definitely returning.
