Popped into the Bells pub in Staines whilst shopping with my wife, for a lunch time break on Sat 7th Feb. We were greeted by a very polite young man, and made to feel very welcome , who took us to our table, and went through the days menu with us without any pressure or rush. The food was excellent,...

Really nice filling with the curry sauce and vegetables. The chicken and the minced beef were also given... More

During a stopover from Africa to South America popped into Staines to do some shopping and pass the time. Avoided the chain restaurants and chose a local pub that was given good reviews. Menu was very good with good choice of local beers including a very good Winter Ale! Service was good and we weren't rushed to finish. Parking is... More

We had a really nice pub lunch there yesterday. A true local pub, possibly the best pub in Staines where there is great friendly atmosphere , good selection of food available and faultless service. It was busy but we were not rushed and were made to feel really welcome and the meal could not be faulted. The meat pie was... More

Bad staff. In some ways it's been the best pub I've visited in 30 years but the staff and their attitude is something to behold. No swearing policy is perfect for me but when staff speak to you badly and snatch glass from you they need to teach Watford gap some manners !
