Stayed with friends in nearby Norton Disney and went out looking for a nearby pub for a drink at lunchtime. What a find this pub was ! Great atmosphere, lovely traditional décor and very friendly staff. We looked at the menu and immediately decided we would book for dinner later that evening. A great meal, good wine all reasonably priced.... More

The pub is everything a pub should be except for the total focus on food, if you are not a diner and only want a drink waiting time at the bar can be lengthy due to at times only one person serving, also has to attend to drinks for diners. Prices for wine is especially over the top £8.70 for... More

I have been going to this restaurant for 3 years now and for the last year the standards have slipped. On Friday we went for a meal with my family. We found the waitress (short hair) abrupt and lacking customer service skills, we had empty glasses on our table and not once were we asked if we wanted another drink.... More

Celebrating a 25 year anniversary (a Silver Jubilee!) we spent a lovely evening in the Five Bells. A great atmosphere, good service and fabulous food. The only disappointment was that with a fantastic six choices of vegetarian main course, there was only one veggie starter, so just went for 2 courses. We chose the vegetable lasagne which came with chips,... More

We are regulars to the Five Bells and have had some great meals there. However last night we went and it all seemed a little disjointed. When we arrived (albeit five minutes late for which we apologised) they has already crossed us off as 'arrived' So they then had to find us a table. We had booked by telephone the... More

Although it was a busy Sunday, we had a great time and lovely dinner. Our friends recommend the Five Bells to us and we were so pleased. I had the pate and Turkey, my partner had the soup and Beef. Yum yum is the only way to describe it, can't wait to go back.

Food great, no disable parking, also did not see any direction to disabled toilet facilities. The car park was full so parked outside the main door, the nearest point of access, allowing room for cars and commercial vehicles to get pasted. I then was embarrassed by a woman asking whose's the vehicle was and to move it. I explained being... More

We were very dissappointed when having a family celebration meal on bank holiday Monday. Our son had previously had a really good meal there and so we booked for our Ruby Wedding family meal. One starter was forgotten. The pate had no chutney as on the menu. The children's pizza were so hard we couldn't cut one. One main steak... More

As we have been to this pub a few times, I rang late in the day to book a table for two for 6pm. I was promptly told that that was alright, but that the table was required for 7.45pm. We arrived just before 6pm and were shown to our table. We ordered our main course straightaway, but didn't get... More
