I eat here quite regularly with my friends, the food is always lovely, the service always fantastic and the price is just right! Looks lovely inside now that they have refurbished it and the garden is always beautiful and a pleasure to eat in when the sun is shining!

Chose to visit the Eight Bells tonight as didn't fancy cooking or having another evening in. Was made to feel welcome on arrival. Wasn't that busy so plenty of tables to choose from. Decided to sit on a small table out the way as dining alone. Didn't feel intimidated or out of place which is important. Ordered off the specials... More

Food was lovely with a good selection of vegetarian dishes. Haven't been here for a couple of years so was shocked by the decor when I walked in, decides to sit outside as inside was so unwelcoming. Bar staff was too busy discussing their evening out to really care about the customer.

It was a last minute decision to try our local carvery for the first time and I'm so glad we did! Absolutely delicious!! It was very busy and I can understand why...every bit of the carvery was cooked to perfection and we left with very satisfied full bellies! Great service as always too. Thank you Eight Bells :)

Came here for lunch last week with my friend who has small children. It was a hot day, the children were getting wound up and us adults needed a break! I suggested the eight bells as I remembered the huge outdoor children's area! I thought this would occupy the children and we could sit and relax whilst supervising them from... More

It’s difficult to know how to describe the Eight Bells. I know it’s a pub because they have a bar and they serve beer, but that is about the only clue. From the road, the frontage of the 8 Bells looks really uncared for, but inside, it is all very new and shiny with wooden floors and smart furniture, but... More

Went here with family on a Saturday night. We've been here about five times for a meal since Christmas this year. The food has always been top quality, always hot, fresh and very plentiful. This latest time I had Cajun Sea Bream off the specials menu on the chalk board by the bar. I was a great choice as it... More
