“good value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

Ate here 3 times in May. Very warm welcome from landlord and friendly waitresses. Excellent service. The salads were superb.The only problem for us were the huge portions. We should have asked for a doggy bag

“nice food terrible service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

We had a nice meal, but my wifes meal did not arrive with the rest of our meals, we kept holding on, but after about ten minutes and repeatedly asking about her meal, the rest of ours were getting cold. The manager did apologise, but by this time the evening was rather spoiled. No concession was made on the bill, the waitress that took my payment was clearly in the wrong job, serving at tables was obviously beneth herandshe showed it in her attitude.
When are people in the service business going to realise its the service we pay for?!!!

“Great food at a great price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

We often go to the five bells for lunch at weekend and have never been disappointed, the food is always superb and the staff equally so..

I can highly recommend their half rack of ribs and the chicken and bacon salad. Their children's menu is great, lots of choice and they're always happy to change something that isn't necessarily on the menu for the little ones..

Their dessert menu and in particular the ice-cream selection is not to be missed so make sure you save some room..

One word of warning, the portions do come up big.. But they're soo good!
