Lovely home made food right next door the Wishing Well Cottage where we were staying. We had been looking for somewhere to stop for lunch and found nothing before checking into the Cottage. It was just the job!

Hadn't been to the Wishing Well for ages, it's under new management since I was last there but still has the lovely friendly atmosphere I remember it for. We popped in on a Friday afternoon, hoping for tea and a homemade cake - not disappointed! A great selection to choose from (including vegan), I had just about the best scone I've ever had, cherry bakewell - this was one of about 6 unusual varieties on offer. Lovely light, crumbly texture and a real bakewell taste. My partner had the raspberry and blueberry baked cheesecake, which he said was perfect. Huge selection of teas and coffees, all served efficiently by the very friendly lady at the counter. Also very good value.
Parking is easy at the Wishing Well, just be careful you don't miss the turning although they do have quite a big sign up. Highly recommended.

Just off the A27 (be careful not to miss the turning) you'll find this delightful place in a mature garden hidden away from the busy world. Well worth a visit for light lunches and afternoon teas. Friendly and relaxed service with speciality scones (walnut and Stilton was terrific) and homemade cakes (lemon drizzle - excellent) will charm.

Worth hunting out.

Had not been here for many years and it is now under different ownership and has been tastefully refurbished without losing any character. We went on a very warm sunny day and had tea in the lovely gardens, but if the weather is not so good the tearoom itself is very welcoming and comfortable.
The tea menu is just what a traditional afternoon tea should be - a good range of homemade cakes and scones. The scones are particularly good ,we had fruit scones and they were delicious and arrived warm with plenty of jam and clotted cream.
The staff are excellent - welcoming and friendly and look after you very well.
Apart from teas, light meals are also available and there is an off road car park and they accept dogs in the gardens - not sure about the indoor part probably best to check.
So glad we made our visit and will return soon !
