We stayed at The Bell with my baby daughter, they were very accommodating, the room was spacious which was great when you have a little one in tow. Food was good, staff were friendly, would definitely go again.

Stopped here for work, loved it! Turned business into pleasure, and made a 78 hour working week seem like a holiday! Very well looked after. Good clean large rooms with comfortable beds! The breakfast is good and plentiful. The owner is very friendly and very helpful, and the bar girls are awesome! (And man!) I will 100% book The Bell... More

Currently staying in The Bell for work purposes. It's a very friendly place with great rooms, great food, great beer and great staff....so much that I'm rebooking for various stays over the coming months. Well done to The Bell and all the staff. Can't recommend this place enough.

I stayed here for one night. I entered the hotel quite late via the bar. There were a few locals in who seemed somewhat surprised to see a stranger enter! The barman sorted me out by taking me to my room which was across the courtyard where I had parked my car. The room was in an annex and was... More

We stayed at The Bell for one night recently and were pleasantly surprised to be shown to a comfortable room with good bed and large bathroom. We had no complaints until we were abruptly woken at 2am by the arrival of guests in the room above us. (We were in room 15.) They had obviously had a good night out... More

This rather appealing village in Suffolk provided one nights accommodation for me on a Friday evening at the period built Bell Hotel. Walking into the pub was a little alarming as the locals momentarily paused to check me out as I entered. The Essex lilt predominated with a pleasant banter mainly around sport and politics. Reception was friendly and showed... More

We chose the Bell hotel Clare as somewhere that would take our extended family which included both children & dogs. Room was good, we stayed in no.1, which was very roomy. Bar snacks were simple but good, as was breakfast. Staff very friendly & helpful. Would happily return.

My wife and i do not stay at pub accommodation but our friends booked this as it was the cheapest and only b and b available in the area. Our room was on the first level opposite the outside seating area... More
