Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We stopped off for lunch after a few hours on the motorway, with no booking and greeted with a very warm welcome, the food was absolutely delicious, with a good selection of drinks for all, and above all else wonderful service delivered by the wonderful...Erin who looked after our every need! Thank you, we will definitely be back!More

Overall experience from start to finish was incredible. Service by Erin, and the food from chef Ion was faultless. Couldn’t recommend this place more. Absolutely smashing it!

We held my Dad’s wake here. We visited beforehand and the owners and bar staff were friendly and talked through our food options. Organising it was stress free and on the day we couldn’t have asked for better service. The pub itself was so warm...and welcoming, they let us put up pictures and the food was delicious, and not just your basic sandwiches either. They’d even produced a mini dessert- a favourite of my dad’s 😊. A lot more people came along than expected but Erin was unflappable! She just bought out more food when needed. Overall, on what was a hard day, the pub and the staff made it easy - exactly what we needed. We can’t thank them enough - we’ll be back to try the roast, which I hear is delicious!More

Visited to meet up with friends for a post Christmas lunch. The pub has a lovely cosy feel and very welcoming. Menu not extensive but still good varied choices. 2 of us had gnocchi, 1 had duck other fish and chips. Portion sizes are large....It was nice to be told they were large too , as helpful for overall choices & considering environmental issue of food waste. All meals were lovely and we really enjoyed. Only disappointment was only a few puds available, explained xmas rush and about to close for 3 days , so it was understandable. Service was great friendly and efficient. Would highly recommend. It would be lovely for a walk in the area then have lunch as dog friendly too.More

We came across The Bell by good fortune as passers by. Under new management since October 2023, the hosts delivered on atmosphere, a lovely welcome and well priced meals. Worth trying them out.

Met friends for a meal at The Bell this evening. Very warm welcome by Erin which was followed up by the most delicious food! I had the steak and ale pie which was tasty and filling. Hubby had the burger which he raved about and...our friends went for the pasta, which again was hoovered up! Would highly recommend trying this wonderful village pub. You won’t regret it.More

First visit to The Bell for food & Sunday lunch. Although small menu, the food was both flavoursome, good portions & well presented.
