There is nothing I would criticise about this little oasis of comfort and calm. We booked a 'Sunday sizzler' deal which was excellent value. The room was cosy and well appointed with a very comfortable bed, crisp cotton linen and feather duvet. A tea/coffee tray with fresh milk offered on arrival. A massive bathroom with roll top bath and soft... More

Stayed there on Sunday night after a days shopping at Bicester village and it was great. Room was bright and modern, bathroom lovely. Food was delicious and the staff were so helpful and kind. Sunday rate was £170 for two of us dinner bed and breakfast which I though was great value. Would definitely return again.

Went to the Bell last weekend for a celebratory meal with our children and their partners, having been a few times previously, and it did not disappoint. The food and service were both extremely good. It's a bit pricey (£28 for a fillet steak) but it is very good indeed. Lovely atmosphere, nice decor, good food and wine, good beer......what... More

Myself and my partner stayed here for 1 night recently and from the onset we were impressed. The outside of the stone clad building was pretty and perfectly maintained....even having added touches of pumpkins displayed for Autumn/Halloween. We were welcomed on arrival by a friendly member of staff and although an hour early were still happily shown to our room...along... More

My wife and I stayed here for a night in October 2014 to celebrate my birthday. It was conveniently located off the M40, very close to Bicester and on the edge of the beautiful Cotswold. We had dinner in the restaurant where we enjoyed our complimentary Prosecco - the only complaint here was that there were too many delicious things... More

I have driven past The Bell several times on the way home, avoiding the A34 traffic nightmare. Tonight I finally got round to going there for dinner, having long been curious to find out if it as good as it looks from the outside. The answer is a resounding yes. Inside it is deceptively large, the entire ground floor being... More

We came here to one of our favourite restaurants for our 19th wedding anniversary and had a superb diner. The food was amazing as always. We ordered the Crab terrine and salmon as starters and then the lamb rack and Cornish sea bass which was excellent. My wife and I strongly recommend this lovely restaurant.
