Just had late dinner at this country pub on the way home from London, great service and superb food the calves liver with bacon was awesome, it's rather expensive but really good quality, only a couple of points to nitpick the glass was chipped and the cutlery was dirty on the table, but that was soon changed, would definitely revisit...

Simply the best! We loved our stay at the Bell and enjoyed wandering around the village. The accommodation was Excellent and the complimentary breakfast was great. We ate at the pub both nights and could not fault the food or the service. Fantastic to find such a unique place in this little village

We stayed here for one night following a wedding, and we were very impressed, after not really knowing what to expect. The room was lovely and clean, great bathroom, really nicely decorated, and with comfy beds.

A really delightful Inn, with good food, good service and great ambience. We have now stayed in 3 of the suites and they are all quaint although cleanliness was an issue on this visit but I believe management have resolved the issue. Certainly this is a romantic place for a celebration - We will be back. The food is exceptional.

The Bell Inn is by far the most cosy pub in Essex. The food is extremely nice but not over priced. The wine list is good with some wines you cannot find anywhere in the UK. Great service and helpful staff. The rooms are really nicely furnished so overall a great place to visit.

Just back from a lovely romantic stay at the Bell Inn. We stayed in the Vincent Suite and its stunning! They have done an amazing job with the room while keeping in with the style of the house. The bathroom had a huge shower and a lovely stand alone double ended bath. Tea and coffee were complimentary and the biscuits... More

The accommodation is spread out over several blocks all close by to each other, although I understand there are some newer room s a short distance away from the pub. Car parking access was tight but there was plenty of room once you navigate the narrow entrance. Check in was efficient and friendly and I was encouraged to see a... More

Stayed here 6th June for our 2year anniversary and couldn't have asked for more. Stayed in room 27 at the top of the newer part of the hotel and loved the views especially liked the added touch of the telescope. The room was beautiful, light & airy. Also ate in the restaurant and was not disappointed. I had the vegetarian... More

We stayed here for one night recently as we needed to be nearby early the following morning. Our room (Vincent), was spacious, with a large and very comfortable bed. The bathroom was large, with both a freestanding bath and shower area. All the staff were friendly and courteous. The atmospheric inn, great beer and amazing food are the icing on... More
