“A busy buisness”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

Ok a first visit for food for my family and i. Sat night 7.30 had a table booked, very very busy. Didnt get seated till 7.45, so not to bad. Ok , food was great. We all enjoyed our meals. Service good. No problems. Not a lot of room when dining. Tables not the biggest and are pretty packed in. And like i say it was very busy. But we enjoyed, and will return.

“Guaranteed nice food”
Reviewed January 5, 2013 via mobile

Been coming here regularly since I moved to area about 5 years ago. Was strongly recommended by a friend and it has been consistently good since then. To be fair the place speaks for itself as its never quiet!
Don't quite understand the negative comments about the landlord. He is always present overseeing things and is nothing but friendly and professional (as are all the staff).
Always our first choice when we want a nice pub meal :-)

“Excellent”
Reviewed December 1, 2012

Really excellent food and really reasonably priced too. My Mother in Law lived down South and only eats English Food (very plain food) we used to go almost every month. Not struck on the Owner Tony but the girls who serve are amazingly good.

“Great food, great service, great atmosphere!”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

I have visited the five bells on a few occasions now and cannot fault it! Fantastic food and exemplary service. The staff and the manager are always welcoming and accommodating- nothing is too much trouble. A prime example of a friendly village pub with hot and tasty food. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this restaurant/pub to others as it stands over and above its rivals.

Lovely staff shame about the manager who never seems to appreciate your custom. A nice pub with an unfriendly manager.
