Excellent value, great service, comfortable dining. A lovely real ale pub with excellent food and wine choices. Try Sunday lunch, it's first class. Great atmosphere, well done to the new owners making a real improvement. 10/10
My wife ,my little girl and i popped into the 'Bell' on Saturday afternoon at around 4pm. The last few weeks have been very busy at the pub,due to the Rugby being on, so i thought this time we might be able to sit at our 'preferred table' near the fire , as luck would have it ,we could ,happy days! I had a couple of pints of my usual as my wife was driving, again happy days . After a short while i noticed that a few customers were eating lovely looking bar snacks, the smell of the food was too much for our hungry tummies ,so we grabbed the NEW 'bar snack menu' . 3 for £10, so between me, the wife and our hungry 'baby bird', we ordered 'Garlic King Prawns' - 'Sticky Chilli Beef Strips' - 'Chicken bites with a dip' ( sorry i cant remember the name of the chicken bites dish ) . 20 minutes later our 3 dishes arrived , personally delivered by the head chef ,everyone's raving over. I asked him if he was enjoying running the kitchen , he replied 'yes ,very much so and ive gotta try his new menu when ive got the chance ' My 'lot' were all over the hot snacks as soon as they hit the table ! OH MY GOD !! each dish was stunning , the succulent prawns quickly disappeared in front of my eyes, as did the beautifully moist chicken bites and the sweet chilli sticky beef strips , Mmmm , followed by another cheeky pint ...Heaven . We booked a table for Mothers day. Next time, im going alone so i can stuff myself silly with the 3 for £10 offer. Fabulous food ,lovely atmosphere , perfect village pub and i have to add my only choice of pub in our village,which has 6 or 7 nice pubs !!
I could not recommend this highly enough. Peter the boss, catered and met our requirements in extremely short notice timelines and provided exceptional service both with food and beverages catering for 60+ people. Top food, top service top place - we will be going back without doubt - thank you Peter and staff for making it feel like our local. Matt BT
Fantastic Sunday lunch 2 courses loads of roasted spuds just how I like them. Plenty of veg. Baked Camembert to die for to start.
Came upon this pub / restaurant after a day out with our 2 year old. Very friendly pub, with a great menu for both adults and children. Staff were very welcoming and the atmosphere was that of a nice country pub, everyone who came in new the bar staff and were all very friendly. Ordered the 'pie of the week' which was Steak and Ale, and my wife had the lamb rack of ribs. Both meals were excellent and much better value than that of a 'chain' pub or restaurant. Our 2 year old (nearly 3) had the childrens fish and chips, which he really loved. Would really recommend if your passing as it is a great place to eat / drink.
Fantastic meal on Mothers day. Moms were greeted with a free glass of bubbly. Service was excellent. Food superb. Will be returning very soon.
Great atmosphere , good food , the best pub in the area, will be back soon!
Amazing night out with friends. The steak was spot on, good food, good value, great live music as for the staff they were lovely. Definitely eating here more.
Food amazing went on a Monday night Well worth the 93 mile bike ride I done to get there will be doing it again just for the steak night.
Excellent Sunday lunch combined with great service. Well worth a visit!
Lovely last-minute meal out here this afternoon. Great food and extremely friendly service. We will definitely return.

Strongly recommend the herb crusted rack of lamb. Service good and very accommodating for my three children under 9 !!
Food was freshly cooked (piri piri chicken) and we'll presented. I would say referring to it as a gastropub is about right. Staff all helpful and friendly. This was a busy place early into a Saturday night which is a good indicator of how well it's liked by the locals. If I was ever in the area I'd go back again without hesitation.
