Stayed with friends for one night and it was a great experience from checking in to checking out the next day. Staff very friendly and helpful, especially restaurant staff who kept going back to the kitchen to find out the answers to our questions about ingredients. The rooms are decorated with lovely muted shades (very Farrow & Ball) and the... More

We had Sunday lunch here on July 6. We live about 20 minutes away but had never been before. The staff were charming and efficient, the dining areas airy, light, and comfortable. The food was absolutely delicious, beautifully cooked and well presented. I had the caramelised Vegetable Tarte Tatin, followed by Pimm's cocktail Jelly with strawberry sorbet. Both just perfect....

On booking to stay here i contacted The Bell and asked if we would be able to check in around 1.30pm because the website stated that check in was 3pm, i received an email back telling me that that would be absolutely fine as check in was actually from 1pm and our room would be ready. We actually ended up... More

We were just passing and decided to pop in to the Bell on a sunny Sunday lunch. I didn't think we'd get a table but to get one on the terrace was a real bonus. Very good service by the team, and just the right balance by the guy who served us (even though he admitted to being hungover !).... More

Just love this restaurant. My son and I wanted a quick, early evening meal - we weren't here for any of the yummy fancy foods - tonight simplicity was on our agenda. Our food was fab - juicy, piled high burger and an elegant pizza. Always love the decor and the very pleasant staff : Gabi and Lubos are great... More

The Bell provided the perfect location for a 50th Birthday family meal. Excellent food, great atmosphere and friendly, attentive and efficient service. We couldn't fault anything and 3 generations agreed it was the perfect way to celebrate. We would not hesitate to recommend the Bell - and will definitely be paying a return visit.
