A lovely old fashioned pub with character and a wide range of good food. The room we had was large. The bed was large and comfortable with good quality bedding. The staff were friendly. The breakfast was good and they cooked to order.

Was gives the Bridal suite. I do not know what was below the room but it sounded like they test jet engines down there. The floor even vibrated. This went on all night. Bathroom fittings require renewal, sink with rubber plug and no chain didn't cut it for me. Member of staff in the morning refused to print m colleagues... More

Awful carvery, owners served themselves before people in restaurant.. No one asked us if we wanted drinks or how our meal was.. We got our own cutlery off other tables and got drinks from the bar and helped ourselves to the carvery.. On the plus side we only paid for drinks and not the meals as a lovely member of... More

We recently got married at the Bell Hotel and cannot thank the staff enough for their beautiful rooms, excellent food and friendly service. You made our day. All our friends and family enjoyed themselves too. Thank you - Louise and Michael Gregory.

We have just spent the night at the Bell, celebrating a Golden Wedding with family. Excellent food both at the celebration meal, and at breakfast the morning after. The rooms were spacious, warm and comfortable, and the staff were friendly and helpful throughout. Would throughly recommend for a family celebration. A great time was had by all.

  My elderly parents (both in their eighties) and living in Clare, booked a table at The Bell because they had a power cut at home and had spent three days in a dark, cold house with no hot meals - they told the hotel this when they booked. When they arrived they were told that they couldn't eat in... More

My partner and I stayed at the Bell Inn, Clare, for one night towards the end of Sept 2013 whilst travelling around the area. We found the staff to be friendly and accommodating. We had requested a room in the annexe at the back of the hotel hoping it would be quiet, however due to poor glazing and insulation, we... More

Booked the Tudor Room for an eightieth birthday party Sunday lunch. As we were a party of 19 it was agreed that we would be served, rather than use the carvery. The staff wee friendly and attentive without being intrusive. A marvellous experience for us all and one that we're sure to repeat.
