The Gins are amazing..especially the new Christopher Wren....delicious! We're changing the wine list as we speak so you'll have to come and join in a tasting...or three! P&H

We went on a fathers and sons weekend and stayed in the Bell on the Saturday. Staff all very welcoming and the food was excellent. There weren't many locals using the pub but the ones we met were very friendly.

I arranged to have my 30th Birthday Party here after meeting Helen completely by chance. She helped organise things to my exact requirements, arranged food for my guests and allowed me use of the beautiful patio area. The outside space is just stunning with a very large patio that extends round the side of the pub. It has pretty rattan...

We have actually ceased our affiliation with Taste after many years. Far from 'back tracking' this was an offer of good will and we were delighted you enjoyed your lunch. Thanks for taking the time to let me know about this as I will contact Taste again to remove us from their scheme Kind regards Paul

Just returned from a two night stay at The Bell. Our room (number 7) overlooked the "patio/smoking" area so we had people outside our window until the bar closed or they went to bed therefore we could not sleep due to the noise. Upon arrival our room had been sprayed with so air freshener it made my eyes water probably...

'Probably masking the smell of damp' ? What a silly comment! We have oil sticks which naurally dispense a perfume of 'Fresh Linen' Im sorry you found this offensive but having reviewed many comments regarding these I will not be changing this standard as most guest comment positively on this touch.. Thanks for bringing it to my attention though. We...

the first thing I would like to say is that the 2 lads working there were absolutely brilliant and worked really hard to look after you, also the food was nice even though you had to wait a long time and didn't always get what you ordered, a 60 minute wait on the second night there.

Booked here for a family weekend away due to the convenience to get to Newbury Races. Initially I thought the decor was 'quaint' but over the stay found it more of a strange collection of oddities that were damp and dirty. The view from our room was a boundary fence, overgrown with foliage. On the second night there were guests...

We spent 3 nights (2 at the beginning of our UK holiday and 1 at the end of it) at the Bell at Boxford, choosing it because of the very handy location right in the middle of Southern England and very near to the M4 (but distant enough for the village to be very peaceful).

We stayed in room 10 on a Saturday night. There was a little corridor noise during the evening but nothing to concern us. Everything quietened down pretty quickly and we got a really good nights sleep. The bedroom and en suite were clean and functional and the bed was comfy. So nice that our dog was welcomed equally.
