Would like to thank all the staff for really making our stay special. The room was beautifully decorated and very spacious. Dinner and breakfast was fantastic. Thank you Anne-Marie, Russ and Mitch for for your excellent service at dinner. Would highly recommend to anyone wanting to stay in the new forest.

We had our wedding at the Bell Inn and are very happy with our decision. Mark (The general manager) was happy to go with everything we wanted. He gave some advice on seating plans and answered every question we threw at him. The Bell is a fantastic, rustic venue that people would be impressed without any changes. Saying that though,...

Worth every penny. The restaurant is lovely, beautifully decorated, gorgeous food and friendly service. The reception staff are great, very welcoming and on arrival, included in our package, we received...

Absolutely first rate four night stay. All staff were fantastic. The food was excellent. To be more specific the cooked breakfast I had on the first morning was pretty much perfect. The evening meals we had were all 8 out of 10 or better. Great location for exploring the New Forest and we ventured further afield to Sandbanks, which was...

Are here with friends a few months back when they had a steak night. The steak was excellent. We had the Chateaubriand which was the best. There is also a cozy open fire for the colder months. Definitely give this place a go it's worth it.

Saw the weather forecast so phoned and booked a late room. Opted for a larger estate room and unknowingly were allocated the same room as on our first visit No. 16. Pleased to note it is wearing well. Huge room with comfortable King size bed and walk-in shower. It overlooks the road, which doesn't bother us, but some people may...

However my mothers, the chicken Kiev lacked structure with no veg and very little potatoes, said to be done two ways, one seemed to be crisps! My father had the burger which didn't...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Dating from 1782, The Bell Inn combines period features with contemporary style. We're located in the heart of the New Forest National Park in the tranquil hamlet of Bramshaw, yet we are only one minute from the M27! We specialise in looking after small numbers of guests, whether a golf group, a few friends on a short break, or for a business meeting. Our reputation for quality cuisine and wines is growing all the time. Our chefs are dedicated to using locally sourced food and follow the principle of sourcing a significant amount of our produce from within the New Forest. ... more   less
