We have eaten at the Bell numerous times before and had always had an enjoyable experience, so was really looking forward to an evening with friends there, how disappointing, we arrived to find no parking spaces in the car park so had to leave our car out on the road some way

Thank you for your response to your experience. I am fully aware of your reservation as I personally tried to ring you on three occasions and left a voicemail to discuss your booking. A lot of our guests request a private room which seats 10 comfortably, however as you were 13 guests I tried to find out if you did require the private room, but I could not reach your sister. I appreciate that someone rang to confirm and spoke to a member of staff, however as a manager I wanted to discuss the table allocation and confirm the details in person. You sister mentioned that she had a missed call but did not ring back. Therefore there was nothing I could have done, only try to ring with no answer. On the day, I was checking with my staff who was appointed to look after your tables to find out if you were happy and not once did anyone mention that you were not. As we politely asked you to move at the end, I thought it was not the best service and therefore I decided to offer you a discount as an apology. I am very sorry to hear about your disappointment and once again I can only apologise. I tried to do my best to ring you and discuss your details, once you were here I had one of the best member of staff looking after you and making sure that your lunch is most enjoyable and on the end I have offered you a discount. I truly hope that you will give us another chance and book again. Perhaps directly with management. Kind regards.

Another mid week visit for lunch that involved great food, nice atmosphere and service with a smile. A table for four, and 4 very happy diners. The constantly adapting menu is a joy. Thank you We’ll be back soon.
