We had read good reviews about The Bell so we arrived for an early evening meal, without making a booking. Although it was very busy due to it being a special Steak night, the hosts were more than happy to accommodate us. It is a very friendly pub & the meal we had was most enjoyable, just sorry we couldn't...

Super food, super service with friendly caring staff, would visit again, need to book for a Sunday roast. Some tables are large enough to seat 6 without being cramped as well as not all squeezed up together. We ate inside but there are benches outside. My son was enjoying his birthday and for his sweet, the staff put a lit...

This obviously a very popular local haunt and we were warned we might have to wait for our table/meal. On the contrary, we were seated and fed very promptly; great beers on tap and super pub food. Highly reccomended.

We visited this pub today. Traditional in style and beer. Very good food, reasonably priced. Well worth going out of your way to visit. I had steak and ale pie. Lovely. Nice view of the church and square where we sat. Very busy for a Monday and very dog friendly.

Great atmosphere in this Inn. Huge selection on the menu and really good sized portions at reasonable prices. Food was wonderfully hot! There is accommodation here but we only called in for lunch so cannot comment on this. Very pretty village with lots of history which is shown by the photos on the walls. Very friendly bar staff and dogs...

We stayed at the Bell for a weekend along with 4 friends, this amazing pub has 3 letting rooms at very reasonable prices. As you would expect from an old building you don't get ultra modern facilities but the rooms are spotless, the shower cubicle albeit quite small was very powerful, the view from our bedroom was absolutely awesome, downstairs...

“The back double is quieter, but there are only 3 rooms and they are all above the pub, so you don't want to sleep at the front if you want to get to sleep before last orders. And who would?!”
