This is a great local haunt with brilliant food and a friendly buzzy atmosphere. We popped in for dinner with friends and ended up staying until we were kicked out at the end of the night. 3 courses of surprisingly good food and a seriously good wine selection. The waiter Rob was helpful and very knowledgeable. We will be back!

I organised a late Christmas meal here for colleagues of mine. We had a good time, food & service was of a high standard. My wife & I also stayed the night. The room was comfortable if a little small. The breakfast was pleasant although the kitchen had, at times, difficulty in keeping up with demand for the cooked items.

We came to the Bell Inn in mass! We had our family after Christmas meal at the Bell Inn this year and I should imagine that we will be back again next year if not before. It did not start so well though – there was some confusion over a pre-order which I was asked for a couple of days... More

Went to the Bell Inn last weekend and had such a fun time with friends. The atmosphere was lovely, the food was delicious, and the staff were very friendly and attentive. Highly recommended for an evening out or a weekend stay!

Having stopped off for lunch on 2 occasions during 2014, we thought it would be a nice break straight after the new year, to spend a couple of days at this charming establishment. We were not disappointed in any way. The room was spotless and the bed was very comfy. Breakfast was lovely & the food in the restaurant was... More

Only had 1 night here as a Secret Escapes deal but will definitely return. The inn is very tastefully decorated with a warm, welcoming feel. The staff are all very friendly and hepful. We had a meal in the restaurant that was excellent. Would have no hesitation in recommending this inn.

Met up with friends and decided on my recommendation that why didn't we have lunch at the Bell at Brook, as in the past had eaten here with work colleagues and the food had always been excellent Must say the decor and surroundings are faultless. As it was a cold day we saw on the specials board "Lancashire Hot Pot"... More

Arrived Thursday 8th January. I found this hotel through Travelzoo and booked a offer for an overnight stay, 3-course dinner, 2 glasses of champagne with dinner and breakfast. When you arrive at the Bell Inn the loveliness of the New Forest is prominent, which is lovely. The donkeys/ponies roaming around outside actually gives it a really nice feel. Our room... More
