We stayed for 1 night in room 7. Nice room with comfortable bed.Tea and coffee making things in room and a nice big flat screen TV that we watched the F1 Malaysian Grand Prix on in the morning before and after a superb breakfast. The bar is a good place for a drink and nice friendly staff. We didn't have... More

Booked for a night away. Good food, excellent range of beers, friendly staff but there was NO hot water! Tried to have a shower in the evening and again at 8 o'clock the following morning and the water was icy cold.

Had a super lunch here today with a friend. The choice of beers was excellent with both Japanese and Dutch bers available on tap as well as local brews. Our first course was an excellent curried parsnip soup which was delicious followed by a very tasty steak and kidney pie. Service was good and the pub was very cosy on... More

We met friends here a few Sundays ago and had a wonderful Sunday lunch. The atmosphere was very welcoming, warm and friendly. A cosy country pub on the High Street! The food was excellent and cooked and presented to a very high standard. The staff were fun, friendly and professional. All in all, a very good experience and we shall... More

Visited the pretty town of Alresford in Hampshire last Friday and we had a very enjoyable meal in The Bell Inn. They were advertising two courses for just £10. The prawn cocktail, sea-bass and the venison burger were all very tasty and whilst the portions are on the small size – the quantity was more than adequate for a luncheon.... More

The Bell was a delight for a short break, nice room , well appointed and the staff very welcoming. The atmosphere in the bar and restaurant was wonderful and the food in the evening was superb. The only thing about our stay which was disappointing was the breakfast which was mediocre and a little sloppily served. However overall I would... More

It's about a 20 minute drive away from home so we have never stayed in the hotel part but have often eaten both in the restaurant for more "formal" meals but mainly in the bar for a relaxed casual evening. The choice and quality of the menu are excellent and the staff are attentive and welcoming. We are happy to... More

We arrived at the Bell tired, after walking from Winchester and although we found it really busy received a very warm welcome. The room was clean and beds very comfortable. Spacious ensuite with plenty of hot water. We had the fixed price menu and the food was excellent and beautifully presented.. The staff were friendly and helpful. Although we did... More

The Bell is a nice old pub in Alresford. The room we stayed in was a good size, and the bathroom was huge (shame the shower cubicle was on the small size). Bed lovely and comfortable. Tea tray provided. Towels a little tired. We stayed in a room overlooking the road. Noise from the road and the pub was minimal... More

Lovely old inn with a friendly, welcoming atmosphere. The interior of the pub is delightful and quirky with loads of character. We stayed for one night. Staff were all helpful and pleasant. We had a large twin room, which was charming, spotlessly clean and comfortable. Excellent large en-suite with roomy, hot power shower. Plenty of towels. There was a tray... More
