The Old Well Restaurant

The Old Well Restaurant is situated in what would have been the chapel when the Manor, originally known as "Haghfeld" was a dairy run by monks as part of the Priory of St Gregory.  The Manor was established in 1181, and it is thought that theflint-dressed chapel building dates from this time. With a low-beamed ceiling and leaded windows, the Restaurant has an intimate feel, in which to enjoy freshly prepared locally produced food, all served in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.
