I'll try to keep this brief. Nice enough evening meal on arrival, good variety on menu and my food was cooked well, however others in our party were less than impressed with the steak. The young team serving in the restaurant were all polite and helpful. Our room was disappointing. Thread bare carpets are unacceptable, blackened paint on window frames... More

Stayed at the Bell ready for a meeting the following day. Group of 5 of us and we received wonderful food along with excellent ale. We all enjoyed our stay at a place with character. Rooms were more than adequate and each one had its own individual style. Great nights sleep ready for the meeting. Thanks to all.

Pros Lovely location, village green outside is nice in summer, nice beer Cons Bedrooms could do with a lick of paint and a deep clean. Landlord was quiet short with his staff of young girls, he was quite rude. Breakfast is a rip-off, a continental breakfast of 1 small bowl of cereal, toast and butter, small tea, and orange juice...

I've seen this pub change many times over the years and it is located in an affluent village. The exterior isn't too OTT whilst inside gives you that wine bar ambience. There is parking to the rear but everyone seems to park in the village green. It's really nice to sit out in the green in the summer with the... More

Terrible food. Over cooked and overpriced. One of the worse meals I have ever had. We ordered a child's Sunday roast which did arrive promptly, but the whole meal had obviously been cooked earlier and re-heated. Making parts extremely tough and the vegetables so pale in colour and over cooked. The glasses had lipstick marks on them. We were then... More

I love The Bell Inn. Have stayed there 3 times in the last 5 years, and each trip was great. Super location and accommodations. Birth and final resting place of Musican Nick Drake & Famed motorcycle racer Mike Hailwood. Cemetery is located directly across the street adjacent to the beautiful St Mary Magdalene church.The Manager Ashley is a very nice... More

Went to The Bell for the first time for a number of years and was completely underwhelmed. This village pub has been the subject of a number of reincarnations over recent years and the latest is probably the most destructive. Externally the building remains as one would expect of a traditional pub but on entering one would think you were... More
