We've just spent a night at The Bell. The food was exceptional. The room was lovely and very comfortable, if a tad expensive. My only complaint would be the Service over dinner was slow. Ambience and Location perfect. I would return again for a special occasion.

We used to eat here a lot but hadn't visited for about 18 months; on the last occasion we had a disappointing meal and felt no urge to return. However, needing a change from Bill's in Oxford, a family favourite for a while now, and the Nut Tree in Murcott where my husband and I tend to like to eat,...

Fantastic room and lovely breakfast. Although we didn't eat there as we had already booked dinner somewhere else, the menu looked amazing - especially the beef and pizzas. Will definitely return and eat in next time!

It was a busy Saturday night; but the service for 8 was disappointing. Drinks were forgotten, wine and water violently dispensed into glasses. I must gave fad 1/3 of a bottle tipped into my glass. Food was ok, but my experince was marred by the servive. Everyone else I spoke to raved about The Bell, and several friends eat there...

This beautifully decorated pub is quintessentially a British country pub nicely decorated in a fresh contemporary style. It is also a hotel so you can get breakfast here which makes it ideal for business meetings. The menu is pretty comprehensive and priced mid-range. Well worth a visit.

Had dinner here with friends. Service was outstanding and polite. The decor was lovely, everything spotless. The food was delicious, I had a salad main course which was varied and there was plenty in it to fill me up! Will definitely be back although it was quite a trek for us to get there.

My wife and I were staying over the weekend in Oxford and I needed to find a lunch venue with good options for wheat and gluten free dining. On a personal recommendation of a friend I booked a table for 2 at The Bell and passed on the recommendation to another All I can say is that the service and...

Absolutely stunning food. Really enjoyed our lunch, great taste, great flavours, well cooked. Not the cheapest of restaurant at £20 per main, but worth every penny. Lovely restaurant (although I was a little cold) Will definitely come back and would highly recommend to anyone.

We recommended The Bell to our friends having been before on numerous occasions. I booked over the phone a week before for Saturday 4th February, a table for four people at 8pm leaving my name and mobile number. Booking was confirmed to me. We arrived just after 7.30pm for a pre dinner drink. We were asked if we had a...

Apologies! We are very sorry to hear about your experience with us and thank you for your constructive comments. I must say that with the staff turnover we did experience some misunderstandings and name misspellings for which I must apologise. I am terribly sorry about your negative experience and would like to offer you some reimbursement. Please, do give me...
