10/10 - 5 star - Grade A - Highly Recommended I don’t write reviews, but really needed to compliment this place. Brilliant service, excellent food (both quality and presentation), value for money and a nice 25% off the total bill. No idea why. Restaurant/bar had a nice warm and rustic feel without being that dilapidated type of rustic.

Difficult day. I had to arrange refreshments after my brothers funeral and as it was only a few days before Christmas is was difficult to find a suitable venue that was available. How lucky then that The Bell were able to accommodate us for a couple of hours and provide a buffet. The restaurant was warm and welcoming and they had provided a lovely buffet with plenty of choice and all freshly prepared. In fact there was so much food the manager brought out some take away containers so that we could bring some food home with us. The staff were so lovely and helpful and after a very sad and difficult day their kindness was very much appreciated. I hope in the very near future to return to The Bell for a meal on a happier occasion. Many thanks to the staff for all their help.

An amazing meal. I can't say how lovely and how well looked after we were when we went for our meal here. The staff were friendly and ensured all was well. The food was delicious from the starters right through to the desserts. Everything fitted together to make eating here feel special. Thank you all.

We couldn't fault our Christmas Party at the Bell - Amazing!!! The food was fantastic, very hot and good value. Atmosphere was lovely and very Chrismasy. Staff were very friendly, happy and helpful. Definitely would recommend to family and friends. The Bell made our Chrismas Party, fanastic! We will be going back next year. The Swing Singer, Lewis, Was briliant, made the atmosphere in a party mood. All in all a fabluous evening.

Great Festive Time What a lovely surprise! After reading the online reviews we thought we’d give The Bell Inn a go. We were greeted by the friendly restaurant manager who gave us a table in one of two ‘rooms’ of the restaurant. Our room was decorated delicately with simple Christmas decorations whilst the room next door (only separated by wooden beams) was a Christmas explosion! Baubles, Christmas tree, lights, crackers! A real festive feel. We think this area was decked out for a few Christmas parties which were taking place during our dinner. The restaurant had a real buzz and Christmas music was played quietly in the background during our meal. Our meal was delicious! We enjoyed venison, steak and desserts - all flavourful and served beautifully. Staff were friendly and attentive. We were also surprised by a live singer! Genuinely a wonderful unexpected festive evening that left smiles on our faces. When in the area again, The Bell Inn will be on our list, especially if it is December ???? Merry Christmas

10/10 meal at The Bell Inn Bistro Both my boyfriend and I easily had one of the best meals here tonight. For a small, cozy and warm pub, we were expecting decent food but both of starter and main were so much better than expected. We were greeted by a lovely waiter whose name we didn’t get but his service was amazing. We sat in the bar area with a big fire- so cozy and welcoming- for our dinner as the bistro was getting some maintenance done. We started with Korean Style Chicken Wings which came out within good time and the portion was very well sized for £8.95- definitely get your moneys worth. Absolutely delicious and can’t fault it! Again, the waiter saw as soon as we finished our food and took it away. Granted, the bistro was quiet but this is no excuse for how great his service was. We then both had Pan Roast Venison Loin- £24.95 and Parmesan and Truffle Fries- £4.95 (which we didn’t need because the portion was plenty!) I can’t express how perfectly cooked the venison was- photo attached. The most tender piece of meat either of us have had, with no chewy or gristly parts at all. The chef was impeccable too- food better here than a lot of other restaurants that you pay a fortune for. The waiter also took his time to speak to us and have a laugh before we left. We are both upset we aren’t local because this bistro is one we wished we could regularly go to. Cant at all fault this meal one but. Absolutely perfect- thank you so much. If you’re in the area or at the Life House Spa and want to get out of the hotel for a meal this is definitely the one to go to!

Yay for The Bell Inn Bistro Absolutely blew us away with the food and service. Couldn’t fault it. Top class food, incredible menu! Thank you so much for accommodating us. And the dog. We had scallops and cod loin. I’m going to have to try to make puttanesca at home. Didn’t even think I liked black olives and capers. How wrong I was. Staff were so friendly, chef is clearly a genius.
