We booked outside for Sunday lunch. Great venue with excellent food and good service but a little on the pricey side... overall a.great meal in good surroundings considering it’s a festival tent in a car park! Thanks Covid-19. The gift that keeps on giving!
Fantastic food and clearly a lot of effort has gone in to make the teepees work - great stuff
Food was good, but the service seemed a little hap hazard. Lots of younger waiters that could have maybe done with a bit more training perhaps. One of them called me "mate"! Not a major problem, but as a 45 year old women I not normally referred to in that way, especially by a young lad!
Great tipi and great service also the food was delicious
The best staff and service we’ve ever experienced!
I felt that the drinks were very expensive. The dessert was very nice but extremely overpriced for the size
Great place to eat and drink. Food is outstanding
Excellent outdoor venue and attentive staff . Thought the potion of chips was quite small but given the extra lockdown pounds , maybe not a bad thing 😬
Really amazing food, would highly recommend the pork belly followed by sticky toffee pudding. Loved the teepee with the flame heaters, mini trees, fairy lights and faux fur chair covers.
Great staff, fantastic food, lovely meal in the teepee
Sat outside under large bell tent in car park. Very well laid out with plenty of heaters and rugs. Excellent choice.
Our first meal out in over a year! Nice to hear the buzz of other people enjoying the atmosphere.
Brilliant teepee’s beautifully lit up with fairy lights, service was great, food was lovely and was lovely and warm sitting in between to heaters will definitely be coming back.
during this time when you can only socialise outside they have nailed it
Lovely outdoor space. Delicious food. We would definitely book again
Excellent outside option with teepee and plenty of heaters which meant we were warm and Covid-19 compliant!! Lovely food, good service ...quite pricey but worth it.
Great customer service, atmosphere, and comfort
We've been going to the 8 Bells for several years and it always consistently good -
ambience, food and service are excellent.
The tipi was romantic with the lights. Heaters and blankets made it a warm and cosy environment. Food was amazing and fab customer service. Chatter, welcoming and friendly staff!

Lovely outdoor seating with heating and blankets available if needed. Great service.
Friendly staff and pleasant surroundings, but food hideously overpriced.
Lovely meal on my mums 70th at the eight bells, the service and ambience were first rate. The food was also excellent, I only marked it a 4 as more options and not mushrooms for vegetarians would be good. Loved the marquis and the feeling in there was a really dining out experience with lovely touches like blankets, heaters and comfortable tables and chairs. The only suggestion I would make would be to have a soft drinks menu as I was choosing without knowing the options. I would highly recommend a meal at the eight bells, we all agreed that we would come back very soon.
Food was tasty and well presented and the outside tent very attractive.
My only gripe is that it was a bit cold for me despite the heaters. But they was no fault of yours . It was great to get to eat out again and you’d made a big effort.
Brilliant service - thanks to Tommy! Will be returning in the future
Excellent food, service and very good outdoor dining experience. One of the best places we eat and thoroughly recommended.
Tasty food in very pleasant surroundings. Good wine selection.
The outside setup was really nice and had be completed to a high standard. Food took a little while to arrive - but employees were nice and welcoming. Food portions were slightly less than expected, but quality was very good. We did feel the the prices were slightly too high - £18 for a roast seemed a little steep. Dinner for two, one drink each, burger, roast and a shared pudding was £60. Overall it was an enjoyable visit, but because of the price we wouldn't be able to visit regularly.
Really great experience in the tipi - great ambiance and food was lovely. Did feel it was a bit much for the staff to mention immediately after we sat down that there was a limit on the table and when leaving, there was still plenty of tables around. Understand there is a limit but don’t wish to feel rushed when our table had been booked also.
Great venue, lots of effort made to be welcoming and as warm as possible considering the outside element. Almost magical. The food was very tasty and staff accommodating to a specific need.
Good food and great ambience. We would definitely return.
First visit to Eiight Bells. We were outside in the TeePee and the management and staff had made the best of it, nice murmur of people enjoying time together. Rugs on chairs for if it got cold. Good service from friendly team.
Lovely venue, sitting in the tipi with fairy lights and friends that we hadn't seen for ages, couldn't have been a better place for lunch. The staff were very attentive and the food was good.
Beautiful outdoor area with large tall tents and good heaters. Really COVID secure and enjoyable experience
In the current circumstances very well organised and a good and safe environment
What a great evening! The new outdoor tipi is a feast for the eyes and the whole experience was a delightful return to eating out. The staff we’re attentive without being overbearing; it was comfortable and warm and the food was excellent. Especially good was the dual lamb combo and the steak was also tremendous.
Great food and very helpful pleasant serving staff. Will be back.
Lunch in the tipi on a warm spring afternoon was excellent. Impressed with the delicious food and decent Provence rose wine. Thank you to the staff, great service
Fabulous food, lovely staff and a gorgeous outdoor area! Couldn't have asked for more.
Lovely food, we had the risotto and salad as a main meal. Really good portions. Service friendly and efficient. Not cheap but well worth the money.
Great place for lunch good food and superb service
