We discovered this establishment online, on telephoning for a reservation the lady just managed to squeeze us in therefore we assumed on popularity alone that we had struck lucky by chance, how wrong we were. On arrival everything seemed fine, however the menu we were presented with was totally different to the one I had viewed earlier, one of our... More

I had booked just one night in one of the apartments as it was my partners birthday and the whole experience was faultless. The lodges was full of individual features such as a bed head made of books and and an upstairs chill out area with retro games, a record player and vinyl records. Wherever you looked was full of...

What a find today! Visited this fabulous pub for lunch. Immediately impressed by the warm welcome given to my husband and I, and especially for welcome to our labrador! Delicious food for us and water bowl and biscuits for the dog. Excellent service in lovely beamed surroundings with some quirky decor touches, like lights in top hats and a pillar... More

No sandwiches on offer so we had some small plates which were delicious. Particularly liked the chips, sausages and croquets. Service was very attentive. Fish and chips looked very tasty and will be trying next time.

What a fantastic place! It is a real credit to the owners and staff. The food is unbelievably good (we had cod and chips for lunch here and it is the best, we also dined in the evening and the food was just as good). The staff are attentive, polite and friendly, the planting in the garden is stunning, and... More

We had the most wonderful stay at The Bell on Wednesday 12th. We were booked into the Hush of the Trees room, I loved this room on arrival but as is the way of my husband he was keen to see what else was available as we could see everything was just so quirky and different.

We arrived with two young dogs on Easter Saturday and while they were clearly getting ready for a bust day they did everything they could to accommodate us. We were impressed with the menu which wasn't overwhelming and divided into sections of land, sea and so forth so easy to decide if you know what you fancy. The food was... More

Really friendly staff, well-thought through touches (bowler hat lighting!), gents loos are apparently worth a visit! and great, well-priced food. What's not to love. They also hold community cinema nights and are obviously trying local initiatives which will hopefully keep more pubs from closing down. Well done guys.
