Food was excellent but had to order at the bar. Dining area very nice with some tables in alcoves which I think is really nice and cosy. Nice and friendly staff. Haven't been there for a long time and surprised how good the meal was. Definitely go back again.

Went in totally ignored by staff for approx 5 minutes. Walked out. Absolutely terrible as the staff are supposed to acknowledge customer straight away.

Was hesitant about going for lunch here as it still has the stigma attached of The Bell, which was a bit of a rough pub 20 years ago but I was impressed with the food and the service wasn't bad at all. It was good value for money. The only thing that is off putting is the lighting. It is... More

We usually have lunch out on a Friday, as my wife finishes work a bit earlier. The food is quick, and is very good value for money.

We arrived late (2230) after having been delayed at work. Asked if they were still serving food (thank heavens the answer was yes) and was told yes by a very helpful barmaid. We immediately ordered a substantial meal that quickly arrived and very good value for money.
