I went with friends for an evening meal. Pretty poor experience compared with the other wonderful eating places available in Tewkesbury! Starters I ordered Stilton and apple salad, the salad was fine but overwhelmed by large pieces of very strong, greasy Stilton. I left most of the cheese. Main courses were mainly steaks, I ordered lamb chops and asked to... More

We stayed at Tewkesbury last week on the Caravan Club site. We decided to try The Bell. We had two meals there. The atmosphere was comfortable, service good, beer good, prices reasonable. They had their new autumn menu. The menu was over described as the quality was moderate. We will not return again for a meal.

Only concern was evening meal. We chose off 9.99 menu for 2. Maybe a mistake. Food over microwaved. Should have complained but for that price what can u expect.... More

You can certainly understand why it is said these premises go back to 1696. It's frontage is more than quaint and being set alongside The Abbey adds to the overall picturesque scenery of the area. The rear of the property is a bit of a let down however. Two barns overlooking the car park have been converted into a number... More

booked here for a nights stopover- dbl room with breakfast. Rooms need a bit of upgrading. We got a room in the annexe entered via the car park and overlooking the internal courtyard. As the courtyard is the outside bar area this can get very noisy and even with the windows shut its hard to hold a conversation. The bathroom... More

We booked a one night stay at short notice in September. We have stayed at Old English Inns before so knew what to expect in terms of rooms etc. Floorboards creaked, the bathroom was small and the decor was tired in places. But cleanliness and shower were fine and this is a rambling old inn (not a modern premier inn).... More

Dear Guest, Great to hear what a fantastic time you had. When I read your title 'Old and creaky but full of positives' I thought for a moment you were describing me ! ( It's certainly how I feel some days). Great food and drink and good service is what we strive to achieve and it sounds like we got... More
