“Really nice brunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2013

We enjoyed Saturday brunch here today. The food was excellent, the service very attentive and friendly. Nice casual, hip (in a small-town way) atmosphere. I'm so glad my husband will soon be working in Orange and we will have excuses to go there again.

“Fabulous family dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2013

We had a small family reunion recently with four different families, eight people ranging from 21 to 72. We picked this restaurant because of its varied and appealing menu, but were amazed at the wonderfully high quality of the food at an extremely reasonable price. Vegetarians and meat-eaters all went away happy, and this restaurant visit was one of the highlights of our reunion.

“Worth a try”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2013

We wanted to go somewhere close for drinks, this fit the bill. Nice live music. Food was salty, service was slow, but we had a good time. Worth going to for some beers and low prices.

“A true deLight”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2013

Thanks to the Orange Visitors' Center we were directed to The Light Well for lunch (best Cuban pork sandwich ever!). Great service, terrific food (nice, varied menu) and fantastic VA wines (among others). We really enjoyed it, what a treat and definitely worth it.

“Great Place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 June 2013

Good atmosphere and good food - with light and healthy options on the menu. Wine was excellent and not too expensive and the Guinness was great! Located in an attractive town and close to a railway crossing with huge trains coming through blasting their horns - for most Brits a sound heard in numerous American movies but seldom in the flesh! Spine tingling!
