Great Value Lunch

Been a few times recently and had some good food. 3 course lunch for £15 seemed great value. Sami, our waitress, was spot on and really helpful. Chilli Chicken was just enough for lunch for my daughter, I had some rather large fish cakes which were equally nice. For those who like crumbles, the... read more

Visited The Bell with a friend for a lunchtime meal. Sami, our Waitress was lovely and couldn't have been more helpful. Have been many times before and have always enjoyed the food, but this time was so disappointing. My friend had the Sweet Chilli Chicken, which was tiny, looked totally unappetizing, overcooked and dry, and I had the Seafood Linguini,... More

Lest anyone think some of my food reviews are more akin to a judge off Masterchef, The Bell will change your mind. Mrs P and I popped in for a totally spur of the moment lunch. Historically we've never been able to get in without a booking - I don't know if they were quiet or have simply allowed more... More

Stayed Tuesday 28th April for one night in room 5. Booked in with a miserable man who we saw on numerous occasions and never even acknowledged us as did many other staff. One bar lady and dinning room host was lovely and chatty. Lovely breakfast well presented. Room was poor, dirty wall in bathroom opposite toilet. Radiator in desperate need... More

A great selection of food to choose from and also a specials menu. We both had the Smoked Beef Short Ribs which were quite delicious. To start we shared the rustic bread platter which came with olives and was a generous portion for £3.95. Portions were hearty and all the food was hot and fresh. Service was efficient. Beautiful apple... More

This time last year, this restaurant changed their menu which made it go really down hill. We came back here last weekend for Sunday lunch and it was much much better! I had great service and the food was much improved! Keep it up!

We came here for a birthday celebration a couple of weeks ago. There were 14 of us, so we had to pre-order the food several days beforehand. Despite this, service was incredibly slow. Despite arriving at 7.30pm, we were still finishing dessert at 11pm. They completely forgot to bring out the cake, so by 11.15pm we had to prompt them... More

Great food and a good menu with something for everyone. Our party of four enjoyed everything. This is an old hotel and the building and garden are fantastic. Parking accross the road. The only possible downside is that service is slow, so a quick lunch is unlikely but if your out to enjoy a liesurely lunch it's perfect.

Poor service 1 took 3 hours, not great when we had 3 small children. Second visit, a table for 2 in the service corridor. After being hit twice by a waitress asked to be moved. Third poor service, today, 5 of us sat in a wind tunnel. Another table complained so not just us. Complained to waiter but as previously... More
