I had not been to the Bell for well over a year as a result of several rather disappointing meals. Having visited twice in a week I was struck by the transformation I found. From the cheery welcome to the excellent service and food (and drink) and the bright atmosphere it is definitely back on my list of good local... More

This is not a cheap option for a meal, however remembering the "you get what you pay for" this was fabulous. We booked for a Saturday night and as expected the place was buzzing. I have given an excellent because the food was really good, my only complaint would be that when there is a party of 10 on a... More

My wife, brother-in-law and I unexpectedly needed somewhere to have a meal and what a meal we got. We had the boxed camembert to start which was perfectly cooked. Two of us had the fillet steak which was excellent and the other had the pork belly which was succulent. To finish we had the shared pudding platter which finished the... More

.....the food was even better than before. My cousin and I were visiting for lunch, and it proved to be an excellent choice. She had a couple of very tasty haddock fish cakes with a light salad, followed by a very refreshing lemon tart. Aside from the excellent glass of house red (a Merlot, by its taste), I enjoyed a...

We had to spend a night in Aylesbury for a gig. We did not arrive in time to enjoy a drink or a meal in the pub. But the room we stayed in was large for the price. The room was clean and contained all the facilities you would expect. Tea, Coffee, TV, Hair dryer, Toiletries. The staff were very... More

Last Friday evening had a meal with friends. I had the pork dish as a main. Very nice but would have preferred the skin crispy. But a lovely meal never the less. Other meals included duck but please chef lose the waffle....not chat I mean a waffle. Sorry but it didn't work. The rest of the starter and deserts great.... More

Looking for a pub lunch as part of a walk in the area we saw some good reviews of the Bell so decided to give it a go. The Bell is a big hotel and restaurant but has made a big effort to give the place a pub feel as well. Most of our party had a traditional Sunday Lunch,... More

Well the title says it all. Everything was perfect. Great menu choice, amazing food and fantastic staff who make you want to come back time and time again. I last went to The Bell a few years ago but it has obviously been transformed. It seems like a different place. Definitely one of the best places to eat in the... More
