Fitted a table of eleven in at very short notice, very welcoming and accommodating for the gluten free member of our party. Food was delicious, extremely tasty and a decent size which so often doesn't go hand in hand with great quality. Would definitely recommend; great atmosphere, lovely staff and amazing food!

If I could eat here every day,,, I would! I love food and have eaten in many restaurants from London to Manchester to Parisian boats (not being arrogant just a comparison) and nowhere compares!!! The food I have eaten here is amazing and every meal I have had here blows my mind and at average prices as well! Although on... More

Our Second visit, and once again The Bell at Sax did not disappoint, this time we were in room Nine, it has a sloping ceiling that whoever sleeps on the left has to stoop to get into bed, but then it had a seperate dressing/bathing area, a real quirky room! We were really comfortable in there. The food, once again,... More

Stayed here after one of the wine tasting events (separate entry under the restaurant reviews). A bit extravagant as we live only 10 miles away, but it is nearly (?) as cheap as getting two taxis and has the added luxury of someone else getting your breakfast. And the breakfast was good. If I was really picky I would say... More

We stayed here for 2 nights with an Amazon deal, this hotel is in a charming little town just outside of Woodbridge. The room we had (No.9) faced out to the back and was extremely quiet. Good blackout curtains and a comfortable bed, the room was quaint with a few steps up to a dressing area and bathroom with shower... More

Enjoyed a very good stay at The Bell at Sax, the food in the restaurant was first class (breakfast and Lunch). We stayed in room 4 which was a very large room with a four poster bed, sofa and two chairs.

Stayed with an Amazon Local offer and had an amazing stay. We had room 3 that whilst I wouldn't want to stay in during the height of summer as it was very warm we were able to leave the window open as it was very quiet. The room needed a bit of upgrading especially the bathroom toilet but then everything... More

Thank you, 2 night stay and it was really great. Comfortable room, staff are great with attention to detail to ensure that we had a fine stay. Dining rooms excellent. Chef was excellent, breakfasts and dinner were superb, and best provision of gluten-free dining that I have ever had. Highly recommended.

We weren't staying here as we live locally but have eaten here many times and always found it to be satisfactory. However, I phoned on Wednesday and booked a table for Sunday Lunch for 7 people as we had visitors for the weekend. We arrived in time to have a drink before our lunch which was booked for 1.30 p.m.... More
