Visited this pub last week. The food was excellent, two of us had scampi, one had lasagne and the other person had curry. All were served with vegetables and were served piping hot. The desserts are delicious too. Would highly recommend this pub for a meal if you are in the area.

We booked a table for the Friday evening and on arrival the Bell was buzzing. We were greeted by very friendly staff and were soon enjoying drink. The food and service were both excellent and the atmosphere in what is surely one of the friendliest inns I have visited were outstanding. Thank you for a memorable evening.

We visited The Bell for a meal with friends. As it was steak night, me and my partner had the "two steaks for £22". The sirloin steaks were cooked to perfection. Accompanied with chips, peas, onion rings and mushrooms, it truly was a filling meal. Plus the puddings were delicious too. If you're in the area, I would highly recommend... More

We had a very pleasant lunch here. The food was great - I really enjoyed the sea-bass. Great value and it's in a nice little village.

This pub was recommended to us by the site owners of the local camp site. We were not disappointed. Despite being off the beaten track and a Monday evening the place was full - testament to the good quality food and service. Monday/Tuesday evening are curry nights and for £6.95 brilliant value for money. We felt welcomed and the service... More
