We enjoyed a pleasant evening meal at "The Bells". Good choice of meals...nothing sophisticated or Bistro-ish. Really good steak and crab dishes enjoyed by myself and my wife. Wines were sensibly priced too.

Had a lovely family lunch at The Eight Bells. Perfect for my 90 year old Mum who had a light bite while my brother throughly enjoyed a Ploughman's. All the other meals were equally as good. Thank you Ryan & Laura.
