I have eaten here several times in the last couple of months and the food has always been good (pizzas especially!), the service has always been excellent (both in terms of promptness of getting food to me and politeness and helpfulness of staff) and it's a nice atmosphere. Not much more to say except I definitely recommend it and will... More

There's a great circular walk around Boars Hill starting in Suningwell and this is a great place to end up! There's a cosy open fire in winter, the beer is good and the bar snacks such as Scotch eggs are good quality. Almost worth doing the walk just for the drinks at the end!

Six of us had dinner here one Friday night, the staff were fantastic and the food good quality. The only thing that I would say is it a bit pricy, over £12.00 for a pint of bitter and two bitter shandys and the best part of £13.00 for a burger and chips - no salad or garnish etc

I had lunch with a few colleagues on what turned out the be the first warm day of the year. Even though we decided to sit inside, the outside looked really welcoming and comfortable. I will come back for this. The menu looked diverse and we all ordered something different. Staff seemed more efficient than friendly but maybe this was... More

Really helpful and attentive service. Good menu selection of typical pub food. I recommend the Sunday roast. Generous portion sizes.

I reviewed the Flowing Well in June last year. Since then the standard of food has dropped from brilliant to very good and the starter still does not arrive before the main! The staff are attentive and good, this time paying for a round of drinks in compensation for the long wait caused by the error. Still a lovely pub... More

The mains arrived and no starters, we decided to just have the mains, they bought out one complimentary garlic bread we then ordered another, it never... More
