Evening meal in the restaurant on a quiet night. Service was terrible, so, so, so slow and totally inadequate. Food arrived at different times and was nothing special. Could not get menus, could not get order to be taken, could not get food to be served, had to keep asking. Bill was miscalculated and had to be redone. Lots of... More

We booked on the strength of other reviews. We arrived late afternoon and received a warm, friendly and polite welcome. Our standard double was snug and very warm, though well decorated, comfortable and well appointed (esp the small jar of jelly beans!) But we had to open the window and our room faced onto a very busy road and associated... More

We visited The Bell on Sunday for a late lunch/early dinner. The entrance and layout is lovely and cosy looking. We were shown to our table and given copies of the menu. We were finally asked for our food order which we placed but had to ask if we could order drinks. We order breads for starters but had to... More

Business lunch. Had the curry chicken - very tasty and memorable. Companion had the spiced pork with crispy noodles from the special menu and that looked great. We will be back and look forward to the next menu as long as they keep the curry chicken.

I went The Bell Inn for dinner with a group of friends and yet again it was excellent. The staff were professional and friendly as always and the food was delicious. The Bell has such a lovely warm atmosphere with great food and service. What more can you ask for?!

Whilst most hotels that deem to be pet friendly generally have a plethora of do's and don'ts that generally makes your stay far from pet friendly.The Bell Inn is the exemption. From the moment we checked in we and our four legged friend were made extremely welcome. Apart from the main restaurant, pets are welcome anywhere, they even have a... More

The hotel is excellent, very welcoming and the staff are very helpful and pleasant. However, the restaurant service level and menu left a lot to be desired e.g on Sunday evening a number of items which were on the menu were not available.

The Bell Inn at Bramshaw never fails to provide the warm welcome and relaxing atmosphere that my wife and I crave when away for the weekend, a quality that other larger corporate hotels can rarely deliver. This family owned private hotel is an absolute gem. The accommodation is first rate and always clean and the staff are professional and courteous.... More
