My husband and I stayed here Saturday night as a birthday getaway from nearby Bicester. Arrived earlier than the 2pm check-in and were kindly shown straight up to our room. Very large room, comfy bed, had a great night's sleep, and large bathroom, tv, tea/coffee/kettle/biscuits etc in room, all nicely decorated, squeaky floors, uneven walls, and at the front of...

Squeaky doors, uneven floors, ghosts, cobbles, rip roaring log fire. All the prerequisites of an old English hotel. Don't even think about coming to The Bell if you like military operation style travel lodge type places or London boutique hotels. The Bell is an essential hotel. A hotel that is really the focul point of the village. Sadly to many...

Stayed here for a couple of nights for work, it's a lovely family owned place. The owner was very friendly and helpful and the food I ate was very good. The restaurant area had a very friendly atmosphere and my only regret was not being able to see more of the local area. Lots of history around this place.

We were booked in for the weekend at another pub in the village, and arrived to find it deserted and locked up. We went to the Bell to see if they had any rooms, and they did but just for the Friday night as they were fully booked for the Saturday. They offered to find us local accommodation for the...
