I have just had the worst dinner ever at the Bell. All cold or reheated from lunch time. I would recommend that no one ever goes there! It was disgusting and £14 each. They should be ashamed of themselves.

Stopped for a very tasty light lunch mid week. Our dog was also greeted and given a biscuit. Friendly staff. Have enjoyed lunch here before in the garden but well-behaved dogs are also welcome inside.

We had been meaning to try this pub after driving past a few times. Lovely welcome from hospitable staff. Plenty of parking available. We had the bread to start as we couldn’t resist sampling the homemade butter, got several varieties of lovely fresh bread. Both...More
