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

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
