Ate here on Wednesday 19th Beautiful food, very well presented We were welcomed with open arms in this beautiful little pub. Not being local we sometimes feel like outsiders but not here.

We enjoyed our meals on both nights we ate here. Starter was so large, we were not sure we could eat the main course, but no problem once we started eating!

We stopped here for lunch after seeing the signs on the A143 for the pub. We ordered the fish&chips and ploughmans. The food was good. We ate outside as it was a lovely sunny day. Staff were helpful and very friendly as well.

So we contacted the very helpful young ladies behind the bar and arranged a alternative room for us, although this rooms lights worked it was evident the room hadn't... More

Loving the new look Bell and food was great too (special thanks to the staff for being super helpful in taking me through the gluten free options - my burger was delicious!). We'll be back.
