The food is usually good. They have some good special offers. Fish is well cooked. It can get busy at weekends so it is useful to book. The food is better when it is less busy. More of a food pub than a drinking pub.

This is our local, we live in a village next to Bassingham. For the second time we visited today - we've lived around here for 8 years but have been building a house, so have been super busy (as well as holding down daily jobs) otherwise we'd have been in before! The Five Bells is just FANTASTIC. You cannot possibly... More

My husband and I were recently in the U.K. vacationing. We have friends that live near The Five Bells and have been there several times. There food is always great. The service is always great. I've never had anything that wasn't absolutely delicious. My suggestion - if you are near Bassingham stop in, you won't regret it

Came here as a birthday treat. Lovely atmosphere with a dog friendly attitude. Very friendly staff with a good choice on the menu. Food was excellent. We are visitors to the area but our friends are local and will be back again, as will we when in the area!

If you like roast lunchs then you cant go wrong. Ive not actually been for anything else, so cant comment on the rest of the menu,... More
