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

The tea room entrance is hard to spot. Although the sign is large the tea room is very secluded. The entrance is on the left coming from Eastbourne just before a junction. The food and drinks were very good and the staff could not have been nicer. As it was a warm day it was nice to sit in the... More

This place is delightful. We stopped here for afternoon tea and weren't disappointed. The lady who served us couldn't have been more welcoming or helpful. The afternoon tea choices were great and presented beautifully. Although it is very close to a busy main road the traffic wasn't distracting. It is also not far from the long man of Wilmington so...
