Me and my partner visited and overall it was amazing. The decor was that of an old cottage with an open fire which made the atmosphere extremely homely. The food was great and the service was good.

I made a very late booking for a small birthday dinner with friends. I had no problem with this and was given their cozy 'snug', ideal for a small dinner party of 9 plus two late-comers. I was treated with the utmost courtesy during the process of booking, on the day and on the follow-up. The various dishes chosen from... More

We have been here quite a few times, and have always had a great experience. the food is great, and they have a good choice of ale and lager. We sometimes eat in the garden, or on a winters day, indoors by a warm crackling fire. Our last visit was for my wife birthday lunch, it was a cold day,... More

Six of us had lunch today, for four of us it was our first visit and wow, what a delicious experience it was, there wasn't one morsel left on any of the plates. Piping hot food and piping hot plates. Everything was beautifully cooked, delicious sauces. Excellent service. Can't wait to go back.

We were recommended to this jewel in St Nicholas at Wade and have been a few times over the last couple of months for lunch on Sunday and during the week and have also popped in for just a drink. Our latest visit was a family lunch on New Years Day. The Bell has a warm and welcoming atmosphere whether... More

Called in on off chance and were lucky to get the last available table. Excellent menu choices. We chose from the specials board, had two drinks for under £15. Staff were very busy but still made time to be friendly. Will certainly go again.

We have been been a couple if times now over the last years. We had to wait for a while for our food on the first visit, but it really was worth the wait. Food was superb. Young waitress was very pleasant, and more importantly, the beer was great! I hope we get to come again!

Went here last night, the first thing I would like to say is the attitude of the waitress who clearly isn't happy with her job, she rolled her eyes constantly when asked by us and other customers for things. Her friend was also sat at the bar and we saw her continually go to her friend to complain about the... More

Had a family weekday lunch there and we were all very pleased with our visit, especially my 6 year old granddaughter who was really obligingly catered for. The service was very efficient, pleasant and helpful. Although we waited half an hour for our food we were happy to do so as this meant our meals were freshly prepared and cooked.... More
