We attended a large event in The Ostlers restaurant and the staff catered to our every whim. No ask was too big or too difficult for them.The food was fantastic as always and the venue was exquisite. The owners could not have been more helpful in achieving this great standard. Would recommend this place for everyone or anyone who wants... More

We stayed here the night before my wedding so between us we had a few rooms which meant that I can comment on more than one room type. - Ample parking for guests. - Friendly staff. - High House suites are gorgeous, definitely book one of those for the added luxury. Food is just amazing. I have eaten in some... More

I am rating this as a restaurant. Fantastic menu, great food and very reasonable prices. The presentation of the food was to Michelin star standard. The food was fresh and cooked to perfection. The dining area was a little cramped and the table was small to accommodate wines and beers but that should not stop anyone going here. I have... More

On recommendation from a work colleague, I stayed the night here this week & had some supper & the most amazing breakfast. I could not fault any aspect, from the welcome greeting in a proper quaint Reception to checking out in the morning - everything just right. I'm already booked for another couple of night next week so really looking... More

The food was fantastic, very flavoursome and we'll presented, the food complimented the quirky design of the building and the great service. The Desserts where very very disappointing, in comparison; they where wholesale purchased,low quality and had no attention from the chef. Not a good finish to such a lovely place, with great food. Please change the desserts.

This inn is comparable to any of the Michelin star restaurants I have eaten in, without the huge price tag. We visited for an impromptu Saturday lunch and were delighted that we did. My starter pictured, smoked salmon and quails egg scotch egg , gives you an idea of the chefs imaginative creations. Already looking forward to my next visit!

I stayed at the Bell Inn for two days this last july and it was simply great. The staff is very welcoming, helpful and kind. Every time I needed something or went down for diner or breakfast I was received with a great smile and proffesional manners. The room was awesome: modern, clean and very comfortable. Couldn't have asked for... More

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
