We ate in the bar as we had our dog with us and ordered 4 starters to share as a sort of tapas. All the food was great and staff were friendly. Only issue for us was the price of the wine, £7 for a...More
Thanks for taking the time to review your recent visit. Really like the 'tapas' style lunch you chose. With regards to our wine menu, our cheapest glass is £5.50 (175ml) for a glass of Sauvignon Blanc, Chile but clearly, the price will depend on the...More

Dear wessexman144, Thank you for taking the time to review your visit to The Bell Inn, New Forest. We think we're a bit of a 'hidden gem' in the forest too! It's good to see that from the moment you arrived to the moment you...More
Lovely restaurant, great food, great service. A marvellous way to spend an evening after a day out looking round the New Forest.
Went here for our wedding anniversary, on the recommendation of a friend. The place is really attractively decorated and furnished. However, the service was very slow - although it was a Saturday evening, it really wasn't that busy, but it took over half an hour...More
