I started a new job in oxford and not knowing the area used the internet to find a place to stay. Booked this small inn for a few nights. New owners Colm and Tracy were charming and made me feel instantly at home as did the really nice staff. Downstairs is great. Set off by a cosy bar area with... More

Not at the Bell it seems (in answer to my question). As we sat looking at the menu for 10 minutes or so we had to call over to attract some attention but were informed that sorting out the menus was to take priority. A waitress finally approached and took our order which included 1 x ham, egg & chips,... More

The open log fires and warm welcome on arrival at the bell inn. Care and attention is given by Colm and tracy. The warm homely atmosphere and the new festive menu is a must for those needing a little TLC .

In Charlbury today at lunchtime, so decided we'd try The Bell, under new management, as announced in a posting on here on September 24th. Outside the door is a glass fronted case to show menus, but nothing inside it, and nothing at all outside the hotel to give an idea of what sort of food they serve. So we didn't... More

Me and my partner had a lovely weekend at the Bell warm and friendly and log fire always aglow which typifies a really nice country atmosphere. Staff and some locals were always friendly. Apparently the new management ( Colm and Tracy) have only been there month and making massive strides to returning it to it's former glory. Can't fault the... More
