The first contact was poor no real welcome and the staff did not seem happy as they went about their work.... read more

I have lived in Aston Clinton for 18 years and have seen The Bell change management a few times, and change its name from the The Bell to The Duck then back to The Bell. In my experience as a once frequent visitor, it has become the poor option for a lunchtime visit. A few years ago it was run... More

The Bell is the place we take our friends to when they visit. The atmosphere is very relaxed and the staff are very pleasant. When I booked the young lady on the phone was very polite and friendly. The food is good, the desserts excellent, the sharer is a great choice if you want a taste of more than one.... More

We eat here on a Saturday night, staying in the rooms above (see separate review). Meal was for 6 of us - 2 we were meeting for the first time - and couldn't have chosen a better place for first time meeting. The atmosphere was very relaxed - and this was down to the staff. Friendly and nothing too much... More

Had a lovely meal with my family at the end of Jan. Lovely setting, decor, smart staff uniforms. Love the rothschild painting by the door. We weren't greeted when we came in and the place was quite confusing... But once we sat down the service was good, food lovely and all very well presented! Only criticism of the food was... More

This is one of the best meals, all the staff are great and food is always of a high standard.We go there about once every six weeks or so. Or when we have visitors.

We visited The Bell on Saturday for a family meal. The menu was really good and very appetising. Service was good and the food arrived in a timely manner. Word of advise if ordering the sharing dessert platter, it is quite large and will easily serve three/four people. Two people on our table order it to share and it was... More

Visited on lunchtime on Monday and service was pleasant but slow. Had prawn and crab cocktail to start which was very good value. Thought I would try the beefburger and lobster tail (extra £6) but very disappointed as the burger was burnt around the outside, the chips were half freshly cooked and the rest were apparently warmed up from a...

We visited for a family lunch mid Sunday afternoon, had to wait for our reserved table to be made ready for us. Helpful staff, extensive menu, not too pricey but had long waits for each course, even for the desert. Main courses were ample in size with good quality food. Building has totally changed since i last ate here in... More

Had a lovely family birthday meal. For the main I had a smoked salmon tagliatelle. Taste was fine but could have done with a little more fish. If you like desserts, and I do, the sharing platter is amazing!
