Found the staff to be friendly and quick to respond to any requests. Food was cooked to a good standard and the lunchtime menu is good. The beer was good but could do with more choice, if only one more real ale. But thats a personal comment. Overall there is a good selection of beers ,lagers and wine. Am going again this Sunday so that is a recommendation.

I last visited The Bell in August this year and found the food to be excellent. The only downside was that Kim only had one other member of staff to cover the bar and deliver food to the tables.

This time Kim was on her own for part of the lunchtime. This lovely lady deserves some support as the pub has enough customers to justify three people handling front of house.

The Bell has a small car park, so consider arriving early or come by foot or bus/taxi. Service is friendly, but when visiting for lunch recently, there were only two serving staff covering the bar and also delivering food to tables. There was only one menu on each table and you have to order at the bar.

Having said all this, the food is excellent and the menu caters for light lunchers as well as hearty meals. The fixed price menu with two courses for £9.95 or three for £11.95 is decent value and with generous portions. The beers and wines on offer are regular pub fare, but there is a particularly good choice of gins.

Overall, very good,

We are regular visitors to The Bell and the food is second to none. Considering there aren't normally many waiting staff the service is good and the staff are friendly.
The most recent visit I'd say was the longest we've ever waited for food but the place was full which is good to see. The Bell is back to being top of it's game and long may this continue.

The waitress knew nothing about the wine list. It showed 2 New Zealand wines but it transpired they did not have either in stock so we ordered Enville Ale and Stawfords Cyder I can recommend the Enville Ale(made with honey) The food is well cooked and presented, it must also be cooked to order as it seemed a long time from ordering to being served despite there only being 2 other people eating . My wife found it cold but this was soon rectified once it had been pointed out

Booked celebration Sunday lunch for 11 people, (7 adults and 4 children). The food was delicious, well cooked and plenty of it. The bar/waiting Staff were very friendly and attentive. The table was in a good position. Only negative comment is about the length of time we waited for the food, almost an hour after ordering. I understand that it must be difficult to get 11 meals plated and ready for service together.

There were three in our party and we visited early evening on 7th March. The service was good and the food excellent. Two of us had halibut and the other lasagne. We will certainly visit again. It would be fine for an occasion also.

Not the greatest pub food I’ve had , my self and two friends had lunch on a weekday to celebrate my birthday . Nice enough place lacked ambience , although the staff were friendly . The food I chose was too oily and there could have been more salmon and a little less pasta .
My friends had scampi and chips , when the food got to the table it didn’t look very inspiring to be honest a pathetic side salad and the chips tasted awful ! The service was slow and I had to remind the staff about our desert !! as they had kept us waiting and to make matters worse , my desert was not that great when it eventually arrived !!
On the whole I was not impressed at all and will not be going back !!

Only 2 members of staff for Xmas eve lunch, they were very busy and we had to call them to come to our table so we could ask for dessert and then the bill. That was only a slight criticism but the 2 staff working were still very friendly and good at their job. It was also quite cold in there but I don’t think they had been open long when we arrived at 1.45pm and they sat us by the front door.

Menu offered good choices, plus additional specials on a board. Thrice cooked chips were delightful, and the chicken with ham and sage was very nice and perfectly cooked. Puddings sounded good, but was too full from mains to sample them. Friendly service, but not intrusive. Tuesday evening was fairly quiet. Would recommend it.
