Lovely little pub just off the A413 which is a great driving / riding road and this was the perfect dinner spot.
I had the grilled chicken burger and a pint of Estrella, the chicken burger was lovely and the coleslaw was wonderful along with the nice and warm fries (seems to be a rarity during the alfresco dining!)
They have a great COVID secure setup at the minute and having recently moved to the area I’ll certainly be visiting again.
Excellent fish pie, friendly service and the marquee was warmed with outside heaters with comfortable seating. Highly recommend
Lovely setting, good food and helpful and attentive staff.
Delicious Sunday lunch, lovely beer garden in the sun
Lovely pretty garden to sit in
Roast was very good
My broccoli and Stilton soup was watery and flavourless.
A pleasant lunch experience overall
Great food. Great service. Lovely Garden area. Good beer choice. Very nice lunch stop
Friendly great table service. Sunday Roast is a must.
Fantastic garden and friendly service. Great food too
Great pub with a lovely sun trap of a garden! Good food and great staff!
Our first pub supper for a long time and we were most impressed by the fish and chips and pies! Staff were very pleasant and efficient, and Covid protocol was good, albeit we long for “normality” again!
Over all experience was good, food was tasty and service was quick.
Could have had more outside heaters as soon as the sun went down it became extremely chilly and too cold to stay longer.
But would recommend , probably on a sunny summers day 🌞
Lovely pub, staff very friendly and the service was good! Food was absolutely lovely. Will be visiting more often!
My first meal out since lockdown and it was absolutely perfect! I’ve been recommending it to everyone I know, food was great and the service was faultless! I can’t wait to go back there again! Keep up the great work!!
Outside, was Covid secure and clean. Was cold but good to be out. Service was a little slow.
Good food but limited choices. I think they were changing staff.
Food was outstanding. Ambience fantastic. Highly recommend.
This was our second visit to the bell under the new landlady and we had bought friends with us.
We had the Sunday roast which was as plentiful and tasty as we remembered it to be from our 1st visit. Would definitely recommend.
Fabulous meal as always. Great service and lovely venue.
I had 2 courses,both courses we're out of this world, the roast beef was one of the best I've ever had and my wife's 2 courses we're also sublime. Would highly recommend The Bell.
First time at the bell and it won’t be my last. The roast was amazing. Great service. Would highly recommend.
Excellent food, great service and a warm, friendly atmosphere
Lovely pub with great food and very friendly staff!
The food is really good, Sunday roast is top notch! This has the makings of a good little pub!
Lovely pub with higher than average menu and food quality. Friendly and welcoming. Lacking ambience merely because it was a quiet Tuesday lunchtime during covid times. No reflection on the pub.
An excellent meal. We all really enjoyed it and very friendly helpful service. We would definitely return!
The bar area suited us as socially distanced at large table. Menu was varied and enough choices to suit everyone including wheat free.
An excellent & enjoyable meal was had in nice surroundings.
A great Sunday roast, plentiful but not overloaded. Good value for money.
We had a lovely meal in a lovely village pub. The staff were well prepared with covid regulations and actively enforced precautions which made us feel very safe. The food lovely and well priced. Would go again.
Very friendly staff, excellent food and beer. We can highly recommend the pie of the day and the chargrilled asparagus salad.
Top class interesting pub food. Dishes you will not find so frequently. And very dog friendly.
The Bell is full of character. Judith is lovely, as are her staff. The garden is very well maintained and colourful.
What a fantastic Sunday roast & the staff team were delightful.... idyllic pub.... if you haven’t been before then you’re missing out!!!! Book your table ASAP for top quality food and a fantastic welcome!
Enjoyed a really lovely Sunday roast. Staff were friendly and welcoming. Smashing pub/restaurant tucked away in a sleepy village.
Slow service and food unremarkable. Pretty pub, could be so much better.
Had to wait a little while to be served and our order taken . After that couldn’t fault a thing . Friendly staff , helpful with food choice . Clean areas .
Great Sunday lunch, food was fresh and plentiful. Staff were very attentive.
The food and service were good. Just what we wanted from a country pub.
Very quaint country pub, food was great everyone enjoyed their meals and all reasonably priced
Awful service .... 10 mins to even be acknowledged at the bar... over an hour for food to arrive....30
Mins for empty plates to be collected.. no offer of more drinks or dessert.... so we paid and left! We felt invisible! Food was the only positive part of the trip! No apology from staff. 2 overworked waitresses and some staff stood doing not a lot!
A nice location for a nice dinner with the special ones. Totally recommend, from the service to the food. Menu is not huge, but a nice collection of tastes.
