We arrived at the hotel at around 5pm. It initially looked quite reasonable. We were shown to reception where we were checked in by a rude lady who clearly had better things to do than check us in and show us to our room. We were situated in room 31. Don't visit this hotel if you want a good night's...

When I visited this restaurant it was extremely busy due to an event which was taking place the next day and i reckon everyone involved was eating. The layout consists of loads of rooms and as I hadn't been in the hotel for many years, had no idea where the restaurant was. Just reached the bar and one of the...

An old inn thinking you might e back in Dickens times. Myself got a large and very comfy room (Nr 1). Nothing like anonymous American chains, this place has histiry and character. Unfrtunately the breakfast fell abit off expectations. A buffet instead of order.

We stayed here recently as we were touring in the area. This is quite a large inn ( I would imagine an old coaching inn ) made up of lots of different bars and lounges a real warren but perfect if you are looking for a quiet corner to sit and have a drink. Our room was a lovely size...

I stayed for 1 night. It was near where I needed to work. It was OK and reasonable in price but not without some minor issues: eg.The Car park is brightly lit at night but my room overlooking it did not have sufficient blackout to prevent the bright light coming in the room. The shower room lacked a curtain that...

Went to lunch on a weekday. Good choice available but went for the pies. I had steak and Stilton while my wife had chicken. They were delicious but are not for the faint hearted. You need a good appetite or serious hunger to appreciate them as they are large! Available with chips or mash and peas. Extra lovely gravy was...

A traditional market town pub/hotel right next to the Market Square, serving Gold Medal-winning pies. As it was a Saturday lunchtime the restaurant wasn't open, but the bar has a good choice of places to sit - from tables in the window or by the fireplace, to a tucked away windowless nook. No frills: the bar looks and feels pretty...

We stayed in a family room, which was very clean, warm and homely. The staff were very friendly and gave us useful local knowledge. The breakfast was self service with plenty to choose from. The full English was cooked well and tasty and filled us up for most of the day. We would stay there again.

Alongside the hotel is an excellent local pub which serves a fantastic pub menu, including the most spectacular selection of home made pies. Make sure you are hungry before attempting a pie. They are huge! Served with peas and mash or chips, I thoroughly recommend the steak and stilton. For a lighter bite the do a great bacon brie and...

Came here for my mum's birthday and wasn't disappointed. The carvery was absolutely fantastic, portion size was great, nice variety of veg and sauces roasting were spot on even my father enjoyed them and he's very fussy. I would advise booking in advance as it was very busy when we went. Good job

Very popular with local residents of the town, "Rosies" Bar has now moved to the hotel and their well known management offer a wide range of Beers, Wines and Spirits along with an extensive and appetizing Bar Menu, created by their original chefs. The Bell Hotel is composed of "Rosies" Bar, plus a Carvery Restaurant - serving up to 160 people - a TV lounge, Coffee Lounge and ample free parking for all guests.
