    The staff were welcoming from the moment we stepped in and showed us to our table. We were left with the menus for a few minutes and a staff member got our drinks. Our order was taken and was with us quite quickly. We both enjoyed our respective choices, leaving empty plates, a sign that the food was excellent. I ordered a dessert which again was excellent. All in all, a very enjoyable evening and we will be going again.

    Excellent Sunday roast. Shame no cauliflower cheese, stars dropped as we were waiting for a fair while to order drinks, and had to ask twice for both water and condiments. It was busy and worth it, great food and great experience overall. Will definitely be back and I already recommend this place 👍

    Went there group of 3. All had different meals and everyone loved it. Only thing I would say is the cheese dumplings are huge for 1 as a starter. Service and food were brilliant. I can see why this is so highly rated locally

    Probably one of the best pub meals I’ve had in a long time. I’d heard great things about the Bell & it didn’t disappoint. The food was delicious, the portions were very generous & for the quality of food I think it was great value for money. The service was a little on the slow side at times but I think there were some large parties in the restaurant. Can’t wait to return.

    Delicious food, Nicely presented with good size portions. I couldn’t finish my meal as the portion size ( pork tenderloin with cheesy dumplings) very generous. My sister had the lamb, this too was of a good size portion and was nicely cooked & presented. Staff were attentive without being bothersome. This was our first visit to The Bell and will definitely not be our last. Hope to return again soon.

    To be as good as the Three Crowns at Brinkworth used to be (over a decade ago), some areas need polishing. Dumplings too doughy and not enough cheese. Main course of Lamb shoulder was nothing short of absolutely delicious!

    A proper Sunday lunch made with really good quality products, perfect sized portion which was generous and enough to satisfy even the biggest of appetites. Hot, fresh and very tasty. Delicious roast beef, perfect Yorkshire puddings, beautifully cooked vegetables, proper roast potatoes! All hot and fresh! Perfect! Would recommend to anyone. Thank you and keep doing what you're doing. We will be back, again and again and again!!!
