Lovely pub

We only popped in here for a coffee, but the staff was attentive, service good and the atmosphere casual. Nearby tables looked to be enjoying generous plates of delicious looking food.

Many years ago The Bell at Aston Clinton, which was family owned, stood out as the best place to eat in this part of Buckinghamshire. Then it was sold, renamed The Duck Inn and the standards fell somewhat. Now, rechristened The Bell,high standards have returned. Visiting for lunch mid week the dining room was very busy. Yet service was prompt,... More

Great range of offers and we managed to try most of them. My personal choice was :- Black Pudding Potato Cake, West Country Burger, and Eton Mess. The portion sizes were spot on.....and the chips were the best I have tasted in a long time [chef showed chip genius]. Service was excellent.

The Bell has some different dishes on its menu compared to most pubs. We had Bury black pudding potato cake with poached egg and hollandaise sauce followed by Salt beef hash. It was not something we had seen before but it was really tasty and the quality was good. It is a comfortable place in which to dine and the... More

Rude and unprofessional staff, after phoning to try and book a table I phoned back to confirm the booking only to be put on hold and hear the staff talking about me and how they didn't want to take the booking, one said oh just tell her it's booked, never going there again. Been many times with friends and family... More

From the moment we arrived we were given excellent service. The timing of menus, drinks, ordering and food arrival were perfect. We ordered the artisan breads and olives with oil and balsamic for starter and all were good quality. The battered halloumi and chips with minted peas was excellent and I can highly recommend this dish. Please don't ever take... More

Went to the Bell for the leaving Neal of a colleague. Had delicious fish and chips. Was delicious and copious. One of my colleagues had fried halloumi which longer awesome. Service was good although food could have come a little faster. Outdoor seating was very comfortable and beautiful. Recommended.

We've visited here twice now, the first time we we're sat with friends in the bar area and initially were just meeting for a drink and then decided to eat, the second time we went as a couple and pre booked and sat in the restaurant. Both times we've visited we've had lovely food, and the staff have been really... More

Six of us, three couples, met for lunch. We only get together about once a year and the Bell did not disappoint us. The service was attentive and all the food was very good and quite reasonable prices. After lunch we moved to a table in the garden and had tea and coffee. Everyone was helpful and accommodating, we were... More
