We went to the Hunny Bell for a friend's birthday dinner. All of us driving so no wine on this occasion. I was tempted based on previous Trip Advisor ratings. I have to say the food was a little disappointing. I had a soup to start with which was rather thick, and the mains were fine, perhaps not quite the... More

After a wet 4 mile walk 6 adults and dog arrived to a warm welcome at the Hunny Bell. We had pre-booked a table in the bar as we had the dog. The owner was polite and welcoming. The bar was warm and cosy. I had Aberdeen Angus roast. It was delicious. My husband had beer batter fish and chips... More

Visited the Hunny Bell at Hanworth on a prebooked Christmas lunch and oh what a superb lunch we both had. The food was very very good for a local pub and the service is spectacular and very responsive to the customers requests even know it was a 70 cover lunch. I have noticed over the past years how small establishments... More

All our meals... More

Have been here 3 times and each visit I have tried something vegetarian. They have a good variety of veggie options, however I found the Risotto to be quite bland and sickly, perhaps a personal preference but not a fan of bright yellow food! The burger was delicious and the staff were more than happy to provide a "doggy bag"!... More

Food was piled up very unappetisingly on plate and covered in a very oily gravy. Mashed potato was cold, Yorkshire pudding doughy! Greens chewy. Parsnips and carrots limp. Waiter returned it to the kitchen and head chef agreed it was unacceptable.

Booked a table, requested by the wood burner in the bar and they kindly obliged. We both ordered pork belly which was beautifully presented and cooked to perfection....lovely soft pork and a piece of wonderful tasty crackling 😋 with creamy mash and veg...complimented with a nice apple sauce and gravy. Excellent! Husband then had an equally tasty apple and shortbread... More
