I had a meal here this week wich consisted of the traditional Banger and Mash. It turned nice and hot but swamped with peas. Far too many for an even balance. The Mashed Potato was lumpy and not creamy at all. Sausages were very good and had a great taste. Only average I am afraid

Interesting hotel in a central location although really quiet too. The hotel has a fascinating history and is well narrated in the info booklet in the room. Staff welcoming, friendly and helpful. Great breakfast. Quite a lot of stairs so need to be nimble! We were on the third floor and the stairs were quite steep.

We recently visited friends in Faringdon and came here for breakfast on two occasions . The full English was just delicious, cooked perfectly and there was an option for a small and a large, great for when your extra hungry after a night out. The staff were so friendly and welcoming. When we return we will definitely be back. !

Stayed at the Bell as going to party in area. Staff could not have been more helpful. Our room and bathroom were very comfortable and spotlessly clean. Breakfast was freshly cooked with very good quality food. Thank you very much.

We have just come back from the most lovely weekend, hugely enhanced by the wonderful staff at The Bell Hotel!! Having spoken to the owner, I believe they are relatively new owners and said their first priority when taking the place on was the food. Well I have to say, they have absolutely nailed it. We ate dinner the night... More

In the mid 90’s I spent a lot of time in the Bell drinking to my hearts content, but I had never stayed there because it was a short walk up the hill to my home. Having been invited to a friends anniversary party I decide to check into the Bell for old time sake. However, it quickly became clear... More

The hotel is s family run business with a very warm and friendly welcome. The pub serves meals at reasonable prices.The breakfast is lovely as they... More
