We had Sunday lunch at the Bell but was not impressed at all. We were shown a table and told our drinks orders would be taken by the waiter. After 10 mins I got fed up of waiting so went to the bar and ordered myself. The service was very slow and after ordering food we were getting a little... More

I've lost track of the number of changes in management here over the last six years. Dropped in on a Saturday lunchtime and had a reasonably good meal. I had their version of Welsh rarebit and my wife had the pork belly. Only criticism was they served a soggy piece of what once would have been crackling with the pork.... More

Called in for a post walk pint but ended up having a bite to eat. Roaring fire, lovely chicken pie and scampi. Bernie and Julie were as ever welcoming and hospitable!

On our way back from Brecon to London we particularly searched for a pub with a good Sunday Roast. After reading many average to terrible reviews about the pubs nearby we've decided to try our luck at the Bell. The atmosphere was kind of miserable to say the least. The leek pie I tried had no pastry in it!! It... More

We arrived at the pub just before mid-day, but hadn't planned on a Sunday lunch. However a warm welcome and a lovely log fire in the bar prompted the decision to enquire about lunch. Even though the dining room was fully booked, a table was laid for us in the bar and we had a delicious lunch of roast beef... More

Really friendly pub, booked that morning for Sunday lunch at 12.15 and we were the first one's there but it was filling up later. Great location for lots of lovely walks. Sunday roasts were very nice with very generous portions of freshly cooked food. The beef was very tender and gluten free gravy provided on request for the boss. Beer... More

The Sunday dinners here are great, as are the desserts! Generous portions and very reasonably priced. The pub has a lovely atmosphere - we ate at about 4, so it was nice and quiet at that time. The staff were friendly and welcoming and there's also a nice garden area at the back. Will definitely be visiting again.
