We stayed at the Bell for a weekend along with 4 friends, this amazing pub has 3 letting rooms at very reasonable prices. As you would expect from an old building you don't get ultra modern facilities but the rooms are spotless, the shower cubicle albeit quite small was very powerful, the view from our bedroom was absolutely awesome, downstairs...

Lovely pub with excellent, reasonably priced food and very friendly service. Tranquil surroundings with inside and outside tables and interesting countryside views. Great base for walkers with plenty of parking in the quaint village square opposite.

I have been to The Bell on about 4 occasions. The has always been of good quality. The only problem I have had is that the service can be a little slow but the food is worth waiting for. It has good menu choice also using a lot of local produce.

We visited the Bell inn for a meal & a drink and it must rate as one of the best pub for its menu, friendly staff and atmosphere. If you are looking for a great local inn this must be it especially if you support Arsenal.

If you are looking for a real country pub, with excellent beers, fine unpretentious food in North Devon, look no further than the Bell. The Landlord and staff always make you welcome, and treat you like a regular.

Love it here so much! Fabulous home cooked food at reasonable prices, great service and lovely cosy, traditional surroundings! We just wish this place was our local! Always look forward to eating here and it hasn't disappointed yet. Highly recommended.

On a short break, ate here twice, marvellous atmosphere, friendly and welcoming staff, looked after us well even though extremely busy! Yes, we had to wait for our food, but it was worth the wait and came with apologies and a lovely smile. Great food, generous portions and very good value.

The service in The Bell is so good, other pubs and restaurants could do with learning a lesson from the staff there. It is welcoming, cosy, lively, and very friendly. The food is excellent, they offer a great range, but be aware of the huge portions! Do book in advance as it does get busy, a couple of times I... More

We stayed at The Bell for one night whilst touring around the South-West. We parked opposite The Bell on the village square and ventured into the main bar to check-in. After an initial hiccup, resolved whilst we had a pint on the decking overlooking the garden, we found our room to be ready, also overlooking the garden and with views... More
