Had a fabulous night! The Five Bells is beautiful, full of character. The staff are friendly and nothing is too much trouble for them. The food was absolutely lovely. We will definitely be coming back again. Highly recommend The Five Bells. If I could I would give it double the amount of stars. Make sure you pay a visit!!!!

We were staying in the area & this pub restaurant was recommended. We were not disappointed. Despite there being a large party at the same time, we were given excellent service. The food was full of flavour & there was a lovely atmosphere. I liked how the nooks & crannies of the pub were utilised well for the tables. We... More

We've been regulars to the Five Bells for a few years now and I've never had a bad meal, until Friday night. First the Guinness is not longer draft but Guinness's spin on 'draft cans' - If anyone from the pub reads this please ask your Guinness drinkers, they'll all say remove it. If I want a can of 'draft'... More

We were taken here for my husband's birthday lunch by my brother and his wife who live in Bassingham. Lovely old fashioned pub atmosphere, excellent and helpful waiting staff and lovely food. What more could you ask for?

Sorry to the previous reviewer - visited on 11 July and had four fillet steaks. Very tasty. The whole meal was delicious. The inside of the restaurant is very quaint and was very nice surprise. Service was very friendly and very good. We would definately visit again if we were in the area.

Ended up eating a goats cheese starter... More
