I attended the re-opening after The Old Bell was closed due to refurbishment and I can safely say it was worth the wait - New beers, new wines, spirits and an overhaul of the food menu. The interior has also had a big facelift and looks far better. It was busy as we expected it to be on opening night... More

Newly refurbished pub with a great atmosphere! The decor is modern, staff are friendly and happy and the Gin balloons are amazingggg! I would recommend the parma voilets one or the rhubarb with ginger ale. We all ate here too and everyone agreed it was delicious. Nice touch having table service, they made sure we were enjoying our night and... More

Visited the day it reopened, can't really say that the refurb has improved it in fact we didn't feel that the whole spirit of the place was actually intact. Sure, it's a bit cleaner and granted they did retain all the original Farrahs stuff in the second room, but why a "meeter & greeter" who kept on checking up on... More

All though this restaurant was closing for a refurbishment the next day this did not excuse the poor food and terrible service. Half the menu was not available. I ordered steak and chips. The steak was Luke warm hidden under putrid veg. My chips were black and soaked in oil. I sent my whole meal back. They got the bill... More
