Being a coeliac I was amazed to find such a choice of GF food, so great, unfortunately my food arrived with normal bread on the food , which I insisted was changed to then find the same bowl of food put back in front of me with the bread removed, so not great as a coeliac. Shame cause food and service was good but knowledge was poor in front of house. As a result of this any coeliac will know the night was now full of worry to see if a reaction was imminent. Dissapointed

The menu is predominantly of Turkish influence.
Having had a couple of lovely takeaway meals from The Bell during lockdowns we were excited to experience 'in-house' for our son's 11th birthday.
We were not disappointed.
The food was beautifully cooked, the.portions generous, (the burgers were too big if that's possible). The service was attentive but relaxed. We couldn't manage a pudding in the end (something for our next visit),
Despite this we were brought a plate beautifully decorated with a Happy Birthday message in chocolate, with four small pieces of baklava on, which was a lovely touch.
One of the owners is celiac so there are plenty of gluten free options.
Highly recommended for any occasion.

An excellent evening. Super food and good service from the staff. Our party included both gluten free and dairy free diners who are very well catered for at this pub restaurant in both mains and desserts
A shame we seemed to be the only diners. This restaurant deserves a full house every night. Gold star recommendation

Nice village pub with a rather large menu, probably less choice and some speciality dishes would be more suitable in these difficult times.
The Sea Bass should have been softer, the King Prawns were rather bland.
Very nice Sauvignon Blanc.
We will go again.

Had the sharing platter for two; it was served on a bed of salad, with a side of generous dips and homemade garlic bread. It was more than plentiful for two but we added homemade coleslaw and sweet potato fries.

The food was delicious, fresh and tasty. You could taste the mint, lemon and charcoaled meats. Every bite was flavoursome and grilled to perfection; hot enough with that great charred flavour.

The service was attentive without being too much and we didn't feel rushed. The selection of gins was impressive and the ambiance was vibrant but relaxed.

I am not a huge fan of chocolate puddings or ice-cream but can recommend the hazelnut and pistachio slice with a dollop of fresh cream.

There was quite a few things to tempt us on the menu so will definitely be going back!

Thank you for such a fantastic evening.

Very nice meal , waiters very polite and attentive, only thing lacking was a bit of atmosphere and authenticity as it is still a British pub essentially, needs a bit more Turkish atmosphere .

Enjoyed the food although the bulgur was not as good as our last visit and I was a little surprised that none of the waiting staff were wearing face coverings!
This was our go to safe place last year when restrictions allowed not so sure now

We turned up at our appointed time (4 p.m.), only to be told that they'd run out of roast dinners and we would have to wait for half an hour before they could provide food from an alternative menu. Fortunately, we weren't in a hurry.

The food arrived reasonably quickly, and wasn't bad, but the noise levels were too high and we were tucked into a corner alongside the main gangway which had too many kids running up and down it. Service was reasonable overall.

We probably won't be visiting again.

Excellent food with a good variety. The veggie burger slider was as good as the pulled pork one in the royal 5 so don’t shy away from it! Service was a little slow but staff were very apologetic and keen to make customers happy.
