“A lovely sunday lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2014

Six of us met for sunday lunch & what a lovely experience it was. Excellent menu choices, friendly efficient service. As we only live down the road & it was our recommendation we were elated when all our party enjoyed their time at The Bell. Thank you

“High standards as usual”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2014 via mobile

My wife and I have been to the Bell with friends a couple of times recently and really enjoyed it, so last night it was just us. From the moment we walked in to when we left 3 hours later, we had a great time. Service was great - friendly, efficient, timely, but not intrusive. Food was outstanding - we each had 3 courses and they were all really good. Salmon starter, steak main and stick toffee pudding for me, asparagus, lamb leg steak and cherry Bakewell for my wife - though those very brief descriptions do not do justice to the dishes. There was a real buzz about the place, a busy and lively Saturday night. If you have 3 courses each and a bottle of wine between 2, expect to spend about £40 per head, though you could go £10 a head either side of that depending on your food choices.
We will continue to recommend the Bell to anyone who's interested!!

“Improved”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2014

Following my last visit some time ago, I wrote a negative review. Had lunch there this week and I am glad to report that the experience was much improved. The menu had a good selection, the food was cooked to perfection and very well presented. Service was good although they were not too busy.

Glad to be able to recommend again!
