Arrived yesterday for Sunday lunch on a very wet day to find The Bell buzzing. Efficient staff showed the three of us to our table in the very tastefully decorated restaurant. Attractive Sunday Lunch menu plus Pizza menu offered. Had their Sirloin beef which melted in the mouth and beautifully cooked and was priced at £17.95 - just a hint...

Stayed here at the weekend with friends and highly recommend it. The staff both on arrival and throughout the weekend were top notch. Was given an excellent recommendation for lunch as we were booked in the hotel in the evening. Only a short trip into Oxford and then spent Sunday at Blenheim Palace which was equally brilliant. Couldn't fault this...

What a nice place to stay and enjoy some great food. We booked the Bell at the last minute and were very pleasantly surprised at the comfortable accommodation and the excellent quality of the restaurant. Our room was quiet, clean,comfortable and had tea and coffee making facilities, the only criticism I have is that the ensuite bathroom needs better heating...
