The Wishing Well (formerly The Codrington Arms) has changed hands and is under new management.
We went as part of a Christmas Party and where so surprised with the warm friendly welcome and a wonderful open fire with logs burning, the perfect start to our experience. The staff and management where friendly and welcoming and the service was superb. Our party had a table laid for christmas with a real touch of care and nothing was too much trouble. The three course meal was excellent and with another party in that night the atmosphere was superb.
From talking to the managers I understand there have been problems here in the past but all seems excellent now. We returned on Sunday 8th January for Sunday lunch and was the best pub lunch I have had for a very long time.
The Wishing Well is certainly a wonderful pub in a great setting and am sure the reputation will grow and grow I am certainly recommending it and looking forward to my next visit.
We went for Mother’s Day 2011 and were hugely disappointed. To start with they messed up our booking time which didn’t make for a good start. They only had a choice of roasts on offer. The meat was okayish but the vegetables were hard and not cooked enough, the roast potatoes burnt and the gravy…. well… just like dishwater! It’s a shame as we used to go there a lot when it was The Codrington Arms.
This pub has changed its name to the Wishing Well.......well you will soon wish you hadn't gone there.
Food is awful, service terrible.... we were told the chef was ill........perhaps he ate his own cooking!!!!!!!!
The meal myself, wife and mother in law had at the Codrington Arms on Saturday April 2nd 2011 was truly awful. The very worst type of English pub food: terrible flavours, poorly presented. No chef - or even common or garden cook - who cared at all about food could have served up such muck. I had cold meats to start (a meagre portion - I'd have found more interesting stuff at the ASDA deli counter) followed by scampi (fat saturated lumps of indeterminate shellfish) - I ate about half of it. And, to cap it all, it wasn't cheap: £72.00! I advise anyone thinking of eating here to think again: save your money, buy a whole fillet of beef and a decent bottle of burgundy and eat at home. You'll save money and eat much better. The only thing I can find to say in the Codrington Arms' favour is that the staff were friendly and pleasant.
Love this place.....Went with my partner and my lil boy and he/we loved the chickens that run around freely outside! :-) it has a swing and climbing area for kids too which is great! food is perfect too....and the service is great :-) lovely!!!
Very nice and quiet country pub. Not too far from the main road, so access is really easy and is very easy to find. Lovely back garden, with lots of wildlife always around and about. You do find the often group of bikers park up, but this is all in the genre of the pub. Good value for money and also does really nice food.
