I popped in here for a late Sunday lunch one Sunday about 3pm. I had not booked and it was quite full when I arrived but the staff found me a table immediately and sat me down and brought the menus and took my drinks order. I ordered the lamb roast and a pint of youngers bitter. Staff were very... More

Have been here a few times now with family and friends and always had good food, portions good size and very tasty, staff prompt and there when needed. Sensible pricing and good environment. Good selection on menu and some interesting fish dishes. Will be going back.

Staff were polite and helpful, making you feel very relaxed immediately. What I was most impressed with was the simplicity of the menu and seeing every disk come out of the kitchen looking perfect, presentation top notch and best of all tasted just right. Had the fillet steak with chips and onion rings, the steak was cooked medium rare and... More

Had a late lunch there today with my daughter. Traditional roast beef and Yorkshire pudding. Everything was fine - except the meat which was tough and stringy. I especially made a point in asking the waitress to request lean meat from the chef. When asked by a younger waitress, "How was your meal" I expressed my disappointment at the meat... More

The second visit to this Pub/restaurant didn't disappoint, this time for Sunday Lunch which was delicious with a very generous serving of roast Lamb. Thoroughly recommend a visit, suggest you book as it was packed!

Had to come to Staines on business. As it was a miserable damp lunchtime I decided to try the Bells. Warm and friendly welcome. I ordered the ploughmans lunch which was well presented and a reasonable size so good value for money. Pleasant atmosphere. Would come again.

I went last Thursday and ordered a fillet steak well done with a side of chips. The staff were extremely nice and clearly cared about how the customer was enjoying their experience. Defiantly coming again, big thank you to all the staff and chefs. The quality of the food far exceeded the price. Well done.

Four of us enjoyed a very pleasant main course and desserts with drinks. When our bill came it was £82 instead of the £56 it should have been. When we queried the large amount there was NO apology, the extra items were crossed off and the print-out ammended by hand and just represented to us. Not professional and not polite.... More

Nicola G, Owner at The Bells, responded to this review

I'm so very sorry for the mistake with your bill. It is most unusual to find that a member of our staff was in any way impolite. Sometimes mistakes do get made and items may accidentally get added to the wrong table number. Please accept our sincere apologies and I hope that this does not put you off returning and... More

Nice pub with a friendly atmosphere. Had a nice tapas style lunch by combining two starters, and bucket meals and chips. Staff were polite and helpful and the food was tasty. I would eat here again
