My Husband called in the pub for a quick drink and booked a table for a meal in the evening. The menu has a really good choice and the food was presented piping hot and presented well. The staff were extremely friendly and made us welcome Loved this pub, gem of a find and well worth a visit.

I went there with high expectations due to the glowing reviews its received, sadly The Bells didn't quite live up to them on this occasion. My friend and I both tried the roasted belly pork while my other friend ordered the fish & chips. I have to say that my belly pork was really good indeed, it was a decent... More

Ate here twice with colleagues during business trip to the area. Many recommendation from locals that The Bells had best food in the area at reasonable price. I can now add my recommendation. Menu large & varied with daily specials. All food we ate was very good and staff were very friendly and helpful.

We chose to eat here whilst in Staines on business. The menu was nicely laid out and they had a decent selection of specials. The only downside being no pork which seemed to be a popular item. Our waitress came over and told us that there will be a delay in taking our order due to a large party being... More

The Bells pub is in the original old part of Staines and makes a good watering hole when walking by the river Thames. Also near the Lammas Park. Usually several well kept beers available but the food is probably the best in the Staines area in a pub environment. Wide menu and specials. Not cheap grub but everything is well... More

The Bells is an inviting and friendly pub serving delicious food and a variety of good wines. Went last night with friends, and ordered our main dishes from the ' Specials Board ' which we all thoroughly enjoyed. The desserts were to die for ....., chocolate and salted caramel tart with orange chutney, mango, lime and ginger cheesecake with lime... More

This is a small looking place but had bags of room except for parking!! Take your chances. It's opposite a beautiful church, old my patents got married there 70 odd years ago. They are pet friendly either in the bar to in the garden obviously but not in the restaurant area. Specials posted every day and lots of variety. My... More

Visited here 3 times during our last visit to Staines. The atmosphere is comfortable and airy created for diners as well as drinkers. The menu is varied and always fresh: my husband loves their pork and lamb dishes and they are always creative to meet the needs of my Vegan friend. On one previous occasion, I had to send the...

This is the second time we have been to this pub for lunch. We visit friends who live around the corner. Today we had the home made beef and caramelised onion pie. We all agreed it was one of the tastiest pies we have ever had. Our friend had the belly of pork which was also very tasty. Friendly staff,... More
