We booked an overnight stay here. Lovely accommodation, excellent bar and an excellent meal in the restaurant. The service from every member of staff was excellent. A really enjoyable stay and we'd certainly book again if in the area.

I arrived and knew straight away this would be great. The Bell is by far the nicest place I've stayed in a while. The restaurant and bar was inviting and friendly. The smells were so good, not good for a slimmer like me!! Had to...More

Went for Sunday lunch and as always the food was good, service professional but not overbearing. The pub has a very good atmosphere a good balance between pub and restaurant. George the co owner runs a tight ship well worth a visit.
