A very quirky and lovely pub that had a bit of everything. The food was lovely and the waitress we had was very friendly. I had a great burger and my wife enjoyed her chicken .

Very pleasant lunch. Very nice 16th Century inn/hotel. The bar and restaurant are all wood with large wooden scrubbed tables. The staff were welcoming and helpful. The food was of very good quality, well presented and the service was very efficient.
After lunch we were invited to be shown round the facilities for private dining and parties.

Overall a good experience. The starter course was disappointing. My dish was so tiny I could hardly see it, whereas my partners was a reasonable size. The main course was very good flavour and the extra vegetables that we ordered were perfectly cooked. To summarise I think the food is good but very overpriced.

During a recent holiday we booked The Bell for my 40th Birthday Dinner. I’m a big fan of rustic and eclectic decor and locally sourced well cooked produce. So this place seemed like perfection, my husband and I had the Sunday Roast Beef adult meal and my daughter had the child version. My son had the kids burger. The food was delicious and the beef was cooked exactly as it should be. We all have huge appetites so my only negative comment would have been I would have like a little more veg, another roast potato or 2 and some extra gravy given the£17 price tag. The child’s burger and chip meal was excellent and my son was stuffed! The chips looked so good I had to try one myself. The local ale was also delicious and a great accompaniment to the meal. We had dessert due to still being a little peckish after our dinner and my daughter chose the chocolate pudding with a runny chocolate centre that was incredible. I wished I had ordered the same.
All in all I would highly recommend this establishment and would certainly return.

Three of us had dinner at The Bell last week and it was FABULOUS. The food was really excellent, the dining room is a beautiful old room with loads of character (love the line of books to the ceiling!) and a great atmosphere. Staff were very professional and helpful and the restaurant was also dog-friendly, which was great as we'd just had a long walk with our dog around the Bewl Water Top class. Highly recommended.
