Excellent service: staff were without exception welcoming, professional and attentive. Excellent food: had dinner and breakfast there and enjoyed everything we ordered. Very clean and cozy rooms. Great warm atmosphere in common areas, abetted... More

Just a short distance from Oxford, the Bell is a lovely destination. The food here is terrific. I had the sea bass which was well presented and even tastier on the tongue. My date (a vegan) had the super food salad declaring it was one of the very best she had. We were sat next to a large family table... More

We were here for a family birthday and it was a great experience. The bar area is not very spacious but the dining areas are fine. The food was well cooked and nicely presented with a menu that had something to offer a range of tastes. We will re-visit.

Fed up with the usual Clone-inn, Premier-Clone or Cloniott hotel chains I decided to venture a few miles out from the usual lemming breeding grounds and try a proper, traditional "Inn".....
