Visited as part of Reading Ale Trail. Truly historic village pub with "mind your head" beams and roaring fire. Very good selection of local ales plus my lager drinking partner very much liked the "Rothauser"

Despite parking being very difficult I made it into this old pub. It is rare to encounter an unimproved place these days. The Bell has charm in buckets. Open fires, friendly locals in for a drink & probably the best Bambi Burger I've ever eaten. lots of garlic..Small snug rooms to eat in & good glass of beer. What could be better on a winter day. newspapers to while away the afternoon what more could you want.

A beautiful and comfortable countryside pub with a roaring fire and lots of atmosphere and character. A great selection of real ales.

Order a pint of beer, some of the homemade pork scratching and sit back and relax. I love The Bell because you can feel part of the 21st century chatting to the friendly bar staff or squint your eyes a bit and you could be back to the 18th century - you've just poached a couple of hares for the pot and stopped in with your hunting dogs for a refreshing ale on the way home.

The food is pretty good, selection of beer is pretty good but it's the atmosphere that gets me every time. We can walk across the fields to get there and the garden in the summer is perfect.
