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.

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
