Sorry, i don't like to be neggative, but we had two meals on Saturday night and they were only average. Good staff and really friendly place though. Very slow to get served at the bar.

The wadworth 6x ale is always perfect. And the carvery on a Sunday is superb also Mark the landlord couldn't be any more helpful and accommodating. I highly recommend the Bell hotel in faringdon.

Came here to eat as the other hotel we were staying in was not very good. Staff were friendly and helpful. The menu was basic but good and the food was fairly priced and well cooked.

Think there has been a change of owners, food gone downhill. Fish fingers were brown inside as they were more mashed potato and minced fish.....not proper fish fingers. Inedible. Thought this may be a one off but went back and had a similarly bad experience....More
