We wanted a long leisurely lunch with good food and ambience. The menu was great, too much to choose from. The portions are massive so we really didn’t need a starter. Good service from friendly staff. Definitely will go back

First time I've been back to The Old Bell since 2015 and was bitterly disappointed. The food took a long time to get to table and was extremely average. The cider on offer was very poor. A step backwards from the excellent craft cider available...More
