We stayed at the Bell Inn after a friend's wedding and I would highly recommend the hotel to all. The room was finished to a very high quality with plenty of space.

A lovely little find, used by us predominantly on business but fortunate enough to do so personally. Good is great, a little expensive but you get what you pay for. Great wine too! Will be returning in the summer to sit outside!!

Very friendly hotel, clean,rooms are modern, main pub has heaps of character. All food is sourced locally which you can tell by the 5 star way it is cooked and presented. Ideal for a weekend away or business stop over. Put the nearby Orsett hall at 3 times the cost to shame.

I had an early Christmas celebration meal with some very good friends. The food was delicious, the service from all the staff, both bar and table was excellent and the venue is lovely. It has been quite a while since I came away from a restaurant having really enjoyed the quiz lite of the food.
