We stopped off at the Bell in our way down to Oxford. We had stayed there a few years back and remembered it fondly. Consequently we were very pleased to experience the same level of excellent service and quality. Not having booked, the staff accommodated us without fuss. All three of our meals were different but superbly cooked and presented.... More

My husband and I stayed at The Bell on Saturday night following a successful shopping trip to Bicester Village. When we arrived at The Bell we were very pleased with what we found. It is a charming country inn, and the staff made us feel extremely welcome. We were shown to room 8 which has a distinct cosy, cottage feel... More

An excellent venue for a wonderful Christmas lunch. The staff could not have been more helpful with the booking process. The set menu for lunch was excellent - great food and plenty of it. A marvellous village location, and easy to find.

Stayed with my wife when visiting friends. Beautiful setting. We had a brilliant meal, I had grouse and my wife had a perfectly cooked steak. The room was very comfortable, with a great breakfast would highly recommend.

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
