This was our third visit (for the second time with friends) to The Bell and certainly no less excellent and memorable than our first two visits. One of the party had had a jaw operation and made an advanced request for food which wasn't too crunchy (eg soft bread not crusty) and- in the same vein- had also requested to... More

We travelled to meet friends for a birthday celebration, we are not local so I can only comment on one evenings experience. We were a large party in a busy restaurant, the waitress was friendly and efficient. The food was really good. I can highly recommend the apple, Stilton & walnut pate, delicious! They seemed really accommodating allowing the table... More

Visited on a Friday evening quite early and hadn't booked a table. It was fairly busy when we arrived and we were offered a table either in the conservatory or the restaurant. We chose the conservatory and for a short while had it to ourselves but it quickly filled up as did the rest of the pub. As always the... More

I badly wanted a lovely meal out for my family and looked up reviews for this place and duly booked. I am very sorry we did. Our table was so sticky our arms constantly stuck to it. No food was apparent on it but it had a tacky touch. The seat covers are disgracefully stained and the table area was... More

Good welcome and very pleasant staff but the food? Ordered from the 'specials' menu a chicken,ham and mushroom pie but the pastry was seriously uncooked - should have rejected the whole plate but picked away at the contents. Left me thinking - how could a chef let this leave the kitchen? General opinion - a plate full of peas, a... More

Enjoyed a nice meal in this quaint pub. Particularly enjoyed the sticky toffee pudding but thought the presentation of the lasagna could've been better. Service was also good from landlady, although ambiance lacked even though bar was busy... however considering it was late afternoon on a saturday it was generally a very good meal

Classic vehicle club pub-meet with eleven for lunch. Pre booked seating arranged for us in the conservatory. Greeted by friendly staff, offered good choices from the menu including vegetarian dishes. Everyone was happy with the service, quality and quantity of food and the drinks. Overall a pleasant pub-meet, we will return.

The man behind the bar was very helpful - I can't say the same for the other woman - very snappy and rude. Menu seemed well varied for a Sunday however when it arrived I couldn't only describe it as a school dinner. The sticky toffee pudding was nice , chocolate fudge cake was disappointing. A nice pub for a... More
