Just off the main road though you wouldn't know. The garden is a lovely setting for a tea room.

This is a lovely place to meet up with family and friends. The place has a nice atmosphere and staff were very friendly and welcoming. The menu choices was just what we were looking for and there was an excellent choice of homemade cakes. We would definitely be returning in the future.

Stopped here for a light lunch, really genuine warm welcome. I had a prawn sandwich which came with salt and crisps, delicious mayonnaise with lemon in it. Very good value and very clean. Excellent friendly service.

The Wishing Well has changed hands since my last visit but it was good to find that it is still very much a local gem! It is clean and bright, the food is homemade and delicious, the decor attractive and the staff welcoming and friendly. The perfect place for coffee, lunch or tea!

After enjoying delicious cream tea with home made scones and coffee cake knew it was the place to return with mum for lunch. Was tempted to have the cream tea again as it was so good but jacket potato was delicious. Will now need to take father in law so I have an excuse to try other items on the... More
