    First visit to the Bell, had heard good things but found it just very average. Waitress seemed rushed off her feet, food was nothing special, prices were reasonable, decor was tasteful. Overall it was just 'ok'.

    I don't work there either so don't know for sure. There weren't any wheelchair bound residents or guests during our stay.😉 have you tried their website or even phoning them?
