We have eaten at the Bell for a number of years. Food and staff always wonderful. Our latest grandson now 8 months is also becoming a regular and if I understand his gurgles is very impressed! This is the way to do it, get them young. Thank you once again for great food and welcome.

Yesterday, 29 April 2017, we decided a little late on to see if we could get a table at the Bell ... fortunately we did, especially as it's Saturday and we know a busy night there. On arrival we were given menus, including the days specials. We ordered starters ... pate for himself and whitebait for me to be followed... More
