I visited on 22nd March 2017 at lunchtime. I ordered the fish goujons (basket meal) as I though it would be a smaller portion. How wrong I was! The food arrived quickly and was served in a metal "basket." It contained 4 small battered cod portions & hot crunchy chips. A far larger portion than I expected. I passed on... More

Visited The Bell for Sunday lunch on 19th March with my wife and son. We were on our way back from Stratford and decided to stop off at the nearby Stafford Castle. We popped into the pub on spec and fortunately they had a table available. We skipped starters and went for the beef and pork roasts. The portions were... More

Warm friendly welcome. Cosy atmosphere. Cheerful, really helpful Staff. We loved this place, the food was amazing, plenty of it, really hot with that "home cooked" flavour. Best Sunday lunch around.

A country pub in the lovely "best kept village" of Haughton. The atmosphere is comfy and friendly with home cooked style meals, with very good waiting service . The portions are large! The mango cheesecake was beautiful. Mango throughout not just chopped and put on top. We have had three visits within a month - taking two out of town... More

Having been to several restaurants in the area, we thought we would try The Bell Inn for a change (having discounted before as perhaps being more pub led). However, we found the menu full of good choices, really great quality and decent portion sizes. The desserts were stunning.

The Bell is an ideal place to eat out. The meals are prepared using locally sourced produce, and are a decent size meal. The staff are friendly, the beer good. You will need to book to avoid disappointment, as it is a popular place.

Great food done well. Been four times now and quality has been consistent. Good for families and larger groups too. Not too pricey either. Would recommend for Sunday lunch.

We didn't go because of the date, but decided to have the Valentine's Day special as it sounded so good and was great value. Chateaubriand. £36 for two with all the trimmings. Good grief - it was big enough for Sunday lunch for four, but we ate it all! Perfectly cooked to our liking. We regularly eat here and it... More
