We were delightd to return and find out the Bell is still how we remeber it-amazing. Excellent food served by very friendly staff in an intimate setting. The wine list is even bigger now-must come back and explore it even further. I would highly recommend it! Many thanks to everyone who made our visit extra special.

We visited this traditional country Inn earlier this summer, and received a friendly, warm welcome. The staff were all extremely polite and professional, checking regularly to ensure our group were well looked after. The food was well presented and enjoyable. We now look forward to staying here during the Christmas period!

It's such a shame that this pretty inn on the river in a pretty village isn't a more friendly place. We have been here a few times for a meal and also just for a drink. On each occasion the food has been ordinary. I expected something better for the price that is charged. The service is not good and...

We have been to the Bell several times previously and have been pleased with the pub meals, normally on a Sunday Lunch. Last Sunday we booked and for Lunch. My wife likes a cream sherry normally Harveys but they didn't have any, they had a Croft but she isn't really keen on that. They offered her a "really sweet" sherry...

We are also bitterly disappointed having bent over backwards to find what you were looking for. We brought 6 different sherries to the table and invited you to try them all, I don't imagine many places these days would stock anything like that amount of Sherry which has been sadly unfashionable for many years now. It turned out you wanted...

A leisurely Saturday lunch after a long, sunny autumn walk up the beautiful Monnow valley, and before ambling over to the impressive castle and church (both special). The atmosphere was great, and we had a very nice pre-booked table tucked away in a light corner. Fabulous nuts. The food was fine for what we wanted, more than just solid fare...

What is it we are all looking for in life? The ordinary day to day reality of existence we frequently push to one side of our mind simply in order to carry on and when we decide to do something different we go OTT creating greater levels of grief than the standard week in week out. The Bell is a...

Our stay at The Bell was excellent. It was a truly magical weekend away from London and our busy lives. Our bedroom was spectacular with a grand four poster bed that was probably the most comfortable bed i have ever slept in! The bathroom had a gorgeous free standing bath that was huge, perfect for after our long walk to...

In my review of Skenfrith Castle, I called The Bell, the Castle pub because it is so near the castle . I hope they will forgive me because although we only called in for tea, we found it a very enjoyable place to visit. A very good pot of tea or drinks were served to our large party and it...

Great lunch stopover. Just had nibbles off menu, delicious and generous portions. Quirky comfortable decor. Dogs welcome in the dog and boot bar. Good for walkers. Great location on River Monnow.. Pleasant sitting out area. Communal lounges of hotel looked lovely.
