A pleasant atmosphere and nice venue with lots of different spaces. However we waited for a very long time for a table although the restaurant was mostly empty, than a long time for service. The food was average, nothing special.

The Bell is perfectly placed in the centre of the small town of Tewkesbury and right across the road from the famous Tewkesbury Abbey. The hotel building is over 300 years old and you have to make allowances for that. Our room on the ground floor had windows to a courtyard used as part of the restaurant so we had... More

We haven't stayed at the Bell but plan to do so in the near future, based on the lovely staff and THE SUNDAY DINNER. I am mildly obsessed with it at the moment; the lamb shank Sunday roast is quite the most delicious I have ever had, whilst my partner rates their Whitby scampi as the best he's ever had!... More

Busy car park and no receptionist. "Manager" behind bar struggled to book us in and later dealt with maintenance issues. (Booked out by our day 1 waitress.) Up steep curved flight of stairs and through 2 fire doors to Room 5 so you need to be fit! Only enough room for 1 chair (dining) to sit on so have to... More

We arrived in Tewkesbury after a long drive and we were starving, we saw a large car park and this is a rarity for a pub in Tewkesbury. Wanted fish and chips as we were on our way home after being in France for 6 weeks. We had a choice of £4.49, £6.99 or £9.99 we chose the middle one... More

We stayed here for a night on 27th June as we were going to a wedding reception nearby. Greeted at reception by friendly staff who checked us in quickly, hotel rooms are quite outdated but everything was clean so couldn't fault it.

We visited this hotel for an evening meal with friends. The staff were very rude and didn't seem to care at all. We said we would like a table for four in the restaurant but would like a drink at the bar first, the barman just said "What do you want?". They had no orange juice, they tried to serve... More
