Not as good as they think they are

The pub itself is very nice. It has a bit of old character but unfortunately it also has a lot of modern attempt at recreating age. The staff are quite a mixed bag and seem to have multiple personalities. One minute, you are made extremely welcome and then suddenly pretentiousness sits in. Our... read more

However they immediately offered to do me s roast chicken lunch which was really nice of them. It was delicious. Good portions, well cooked and... More

I am one of those who feel there is no where better for a Sunday lunch than in an old fashion English pub and the Bell excels. A really warm welcome and very good service and if Megan is your waitress your in for a real treat, she is excellent. All four of us went for the roasts, two beef,... More

4 of us went for Sunday lunch mid afternoon. We phoned about 1pm and booked a table for 3pm. The staff are friendly and the service attentive. It is nice that the owners are around and talking to customers. The food was good and not overly expensive for the quality. NOT had a bad meal here. We will be back... More

We went to the Bell Inn after previously trying the other pub a couple of hundred yards away which we like a lot. The Bell certainly has good trip advisor reviews and we wondered what the fuss was about. We were not disappointed. It is a nice old pub with lots of low beams open fire and a mix of... More

an excellent find during our stay in Welford over the Christmas period. We had dinner here twice it was so good. A wide ranging menu of very tasty food. Friendly and attentive service in a great atmosphere. Pubs like this make Britain a great place to visit

We took our Grandson just arrived from America for a lunch. It was warm and inviting and the staff were kind. The food was very acceptable and reasonably priced. The festive menu had been chosen with care and it was good for vegetarians. We had three different mains and each one was served in reasonable time, presented carefully and within... More

Food was average, nothing to complain about but the staff were not at all welcoming. Got the impression they couldn't really be bothered.

Our annual December jaunt was excellently managed by Lucy and her team. Our pre-ordered menu choices (for12) were served on time and exactly as expected. The food was presented carefully and sensitively and was of consistent high quality. A request to be seated in a square formation was met with and we greatly appreciated this as we could all communicate... More
