Quaint small rooms reminded me of the pubs years ago. The staff were attentive and the food delicious. I chose the starter duck terrine served with a garnish of salad, chutney and bread. For main I had the lamb which was cooked perfectly, dauphinois potatoes, carrots. Quite expensive for pub food but all in all very nice!

Food quality is always consistent and great if you want traditional pub fare. The pub is split into four small rooms. In summer get a table in one of the back rooms overlooking the small garden, if your a party, opt for the panneled room. I'm not as keen on the "red" room. Have the beef wellington if it's on...

Staff were friendly and the room we ate in was nice and neutral as opposed to the shocking pink dining room opposite. Could not have put up with eating in there. The mushroom and sweet potato risotto had so much blue cheese in that it was really salty. The thyme flavoured chicken was just plain roasted chicken with no flavour... More

Had a very enjoyable evening at The Bell and cross last night, with good friends and delightful food. The atmosphere was warm and welcoming. Staff are friendly, helpful and very attentive. The food was beautifully presented, tasty and plentiful. Well done to the new owners, I can't wait for our next visit.

Popped in today for lunch without making a booking - we were shown to the cosy little bar which had an open fire and were invited to study the menus over a drink. My husband had a Peroni and said it was good. I ordered the 3 course prix fixe at £17.95 which I thought was excellent value. I started... More

Unused to spend some evenings here as a teenager back in 1979 ish- great to see the old bar is essentially the same. Holly was a delightful waitress and very friendly. The food was really good- had a burger and the sticky toffee pudding. Yum. Beer- Enville ales delicious too. A delightful place. Well worth a visit.

1. We were shown to a table behind another table which was very cramped but was told they were busy so had to stay there. There was a door behind my partner to the cellar which had a frequent stream of staff going down there. Every time the door opened, there was a cold draft, which didn't matter as there... More

I think this had changed hands recently. Our experience was average but I'm sure it will get back to measure up.to.the past
