Very good food and great value with TT offers. Friendly and nice busy ambiance on the weekday lunchtime we went.08/05/2013 00:00:00Fantastic Cornish Fish StewIf ever a description under sold a dish this is it.
This was the best Bouillabaisse based idsh I have ever had. Full of fantastic fish and superbly cooked shellfsih it was a real delight.
All three of us had this and were all blown away by how good it was.
Shows what a real restaurant can do with seasonal produce and flair.30/04/2013 00:00:00Delicious!We dined here on Monday night with a 50% off food deal we received as a Toptable deal. The service was great, the food was delicious and the setting was lovely. Food is a little pricey without the deal but nothing over the top!
Will definitely return!29/04/2013 00:00:00The Well, St John Street, EC1Always a great venue with consistently good food and service wether you are going there for lunch or dinner. If yoyu havent tried it yet then maybe its time you did!.26/04/2013 00:00:00Very...WellSecond time at the Well with 50% off the food. Would recommend the calf brain, fish cake and the steak. All very tasty and very reasonably priced, don't think I'd be bowled over enough to pay full price. Staff are attentive and there was no waiting around. Just make sure you check the bill when you get it, both times I've had to remind them to apply the discount! I'm sure I'll be back.19/04/2013 00:00:00Fantastic!Went with a friend to The Well for dinner - it was fantastic! Delicious cocktails, very well-made food (we both had the sea bass which was crispy-skinned and perfectly cooked) and the service was fantastic. It was a crowded (always a good sign) which meant it was a bit noisy but this didn't have a significant impact on the experience. Plus we had a TopTable deal for 50% off food which meant it was really fantastic value. Would definitely recommend (and already have)!18/04/2013 00:00:00Excellent food and amazingExcellent food and amazing to have 50% off the total bill - made the whole evening even more enjoyable!15/04/2013 00:00:00Just right at the WellIdeal for after work meeting - nice pint of Jugged Hare (beer!) and then delicious gastro pub food - my friend's terrine with artichokes was particularly good, and my rabbit with peas and bacon was very tasty - and filling. No room for dessert sadly - note to self; eat less of the bread! For each course there were lots of things I could have happily eaten, the service was friendly and efficient and overall - very good. Will definitely go again - especially with the 50% offer.11/04/2013 00:00:00Excellent food. WaitressesExcellent food. Waitresses lovely but just sometimes service is a little slow - we were in on a night when it was fully booked though so I guess that contributes.09/04/2013 00:00:00The food was very good atThe food was very good at The Well .My husband and I both had the scallops with chorizo as a starter , they weere delicious and perfectly cooked. My main of lamb was tender and tasty, his main the goat belly flavoursome and announced a hit.04/04/2013 00:00:00Worth a visitWe ate lunch here and focused on the fish dishes which were certainly above average - fresh and well cooked. It gets busy which improves the atmosphere. Attentive service but unrushed. We will certainly return. The menu was 50% off the food. Full price would have felt too expensive.04/04/2013 00:00:00ImpressedGroup of 5, we all thought this was a great night out. Lovely food, and with the 50% off deal extremely good value. Staff were attentive to the right level. Would definitely return.27/03/2013 00:00:00The food was great, the restaurantThe food was great, the restaurant was quite loud and full, so the waiters really had their hands full - service was a little slow.21/03/2013 00:00:00Great food at The WellI went to The Well in Clerkenwell as I saw they had a 50% off food offer on Toptable. The food was fantastic, service excellent, and with the discount, great value for money. I would definitely come again, although not sure I would pay full price as it does start to range on the side of pricey (not crazily so). A great find!13/03/2013 00:00:00Exceptionally good food inExceptionally good food in an unpretentious pub setting, clearly popular. Was quite noisy on the Monday night we at there, from a party of rather drunk actors, but they tucked us into a corner and couldn't have been more attentive. Food was superb, thick chunky John Dory in a light champagne veloute on lemon samphire, and generous glistening slices of lamb on a bed of spinach. Banoffie pie was home-made. Excellent service, knowledgeable about menu. Mix up on what was available in ice-cream flavours rewarded with excellent Muscat on the house. Will go again.11/03/2013 00:00:00Well, well, wellA very pleasant evening at the Well. Food was very good and staff were attentive despite being very busy. With 50% off food we had 3 courses each and drinks for under £50. Only issue was when they first bought the bill it didn't include the discount but that was quickly rectified.01/03/2013 00:00:00A fantastic meal and serviceWe dined at The Well on Monday evening.

Very impressed with the food on offer - we had complimentary bread and oil to start, a fabulous fishy risotto and cakes, finished off by a delicious brownie. We managed to take advantage of both the 50% off deal via toptable and the 2 for 1 on cocktails which the venue is offering in January until 7pm and so the meal was very good value for the quality of the food and drink on offer. Service was good and the restaurant itself was remarkably busy for a January evening, although this had no impact on the attention we received. Would definitely return for a good quality, gastropub experience.08/01/2013 16:00:00ExcellentWe had an excellent meal with excellent service. Staff were very attentive and friendly and the food was delicious with a lovely menu to choose from.

Great!04/01/2013 00:00:00This is an excellent laidThis is an excellent laid back venue. We went on a quiet after New Year lunchtime, food was excellent with attentive service. It is very much 'gastro pub' in decor but made for convivial surroundings for our lunch. the 50% of deal also meant it was excellent value with the ability to select from the menu and not a special cheaper lunch menu.02/01/2013 16:00:00London at its bestWe took our French friends for an English gastro pub experience and everything was amazing! Service, food and ambience. And we got 50% off on food through top table so was excellent value!02/01/2013 16:00:00Supper at the wellWe had a good meal at the well last Thursday evening. Service was friendly and efficient, the food was very good,my husbands steak was perfectly served rare,with a good portion of mash. My partridge was good too, though it was quite hard work cutting off the very tasty meat from the bony carcass. Perhaps slices might have been easier? Red cabbage and crunchy green beans were excellent accompaniments. The 50% offer at the moment makes it amazing value for money.02/01/2013 16:00:00Great pub restaurantWe live locally and my wife loves this restauarant. The food is always great and the service attentive without being intrusive.30/12/2012 00:00:00Great Food, Slow ServiceFood was great as it usually is, however service was slow.15/11/2012 00:00:00The Well, St John St EC1Have used this restaurant many times for business lunches and always had a pleasant experience, this was the first time i had booked a group in for dinner.

The service was excellent - very helpful and friendly - and the choice was quite extensive. The wine list is fairly modest and surprisingly the choice of beers is very limited. But definitely worth another visit.19/04/2012 00:00:00The best choice for lunchThe best choice for lunch in between Angel and Farrington, for years now.19/04/2012 00:00:00My husband and I went to theMy husband and I went to the Well yesterday with 3 guests.

Puddings were rated above average.14/04/2012 16:00:00The "special" main was a bitThe "special" main was a bit disappointing on this occasion, otherwise great starter and great service.14/04/2012 00:00:00
