Four of us went for dinner at The Five Bells as a birthday treat for our mum. From the outside its fairly underwhelming but once you get inside, its a really lovely olde worlde pub, the building opposite used to be The Poor House in the 17th Century.
The pub is separated into two halves, one for the drinkers and the other is the restaurant. Its a fairly small restaurant, with about seating for approx 16. The service was very friendly and welcoming and we were given a menu together with a separate specials list. There was a nice selection of food, starters and mains and a lot of seafood.
The starters came and they were quite large, I think if I went again I would skip the starters :) They were very tasty though. It was a little wait for the mains but they did have a wedding party on in the function room (which they did say when I booked). The mains were lovely, again generous portions. The food was obviously very good quality produce and the chef knew what he was doing. I would definitely go again and would recommend if you want a nice good quality meal in a cosy setting.
Our bill for four including wine and other drinks came to £85 so not too bad at all.
