“Great country inn”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

Been to The Bell a couple of times in the last month. It's a real step back in time, full of character, great local beer, wholesome (if unspectacular) food.

The menu is limited to rolls and ploughmans, but the portions are very generous.

Great beer garden and there is often something to see or do in the area - classic cars, village farmers market etc.

“The Bell Inn”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

Visited here in April because The Pot Kiln shuts on Tuesdays, Ordered a cheese ploughman and a crab ploughman. Thought it was pricey but worth every penny once we ate it. Beautiful cheese, loads of salad and hot fresh bread. Warning, no draught lager here only real ales.

“Unique pub where you can step back in time.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013 via mobile

Food is always fabulous, fresh and tasty. The most fantastic selection of rolls and fillings, rolls are warm and crusty. A pint of beer or glass of wine to wash them down. Today, a Sunday there was a queue at the door waiting for opening time!! The pub soon filled up and people spilled out into the garden to eat and drink along with families and dogs. It was strange to see the chickens running around waiting for scraps of food. The only down side was the chicken poo all over the lawn where children were crawling and playing!!! Apart from that it was lovely and I would recommend The Bell to ally friends!!
