I really enjoyed sitting in the beer garden having a nice lunch. I would definitely like to come back here again especially on a nice sunny day. Staff were all very nice.

Cycled to the Bell to meet so called friends. Good beer (Kimberley bitter) at £3 a pint such good value. Cycled back once sufficient fluids had been taken on board, and banter had been diffused
