We have eaten at The Bell many times over the years, both lunches and dinners, as a couple and in groups. We have tried other places within a 20-30 mile radius, but always end up back at The Bell, because there is nowhere better. Other than one or two instances, the food has always been superb. The starters in particular could win awards. The service is always excellent, the decor is genuine old style English pub (i.e. not a manufactured reproduction), with colourful hanging baskets outside. They have a good selection of ales and a really good, informative wine list (with a decent selection of wines at the bar too). Given the high quality of the food, it is excellent value. Only quibbles are the difficulty of getting through on the phone - they really need to sort this out - and their salads can be a bit bland. But thoroughly recommended overall.
