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.

Driven through the village numerous times bit we finally booked a table. The pub was very busy when we walked in but had great vibes and a live band setting up. We had to wait a little while for drinks and also food but it...was well worth it. The presentation, variety on your plate and the taste was a solid 10/10. I guarantee we shall be backMore

I’ve been to many Bells in my time, but the Eight Bells should really be called the 10/10 Bells. The Sunday roasts are to die for, well priced and generous portions.

Pleased to see The Eight Bells have re-opened the kitchen! The culinary skills of the new landlord are fabulous. I had the El Royale burger and it was delicious. Generous serving with sides at a reasonable price 👌🏻 definitely worth a visit.

Came down on a Friday night with my mates for a couple and it had an amazing atmosphere. Came back the Sunday lunch to try the food and omg I just wish I didn’t have breakfast. It was so mouth watering and just took a...normal breakfast to a whole new level. Definitely planning on trying the whole menu. So we ended up there New Year’s Eve and what a blast the staff and the locals were amazing and friendly bunch of people. Let’s talk about drinks great gin selection, wine, larger, guinness and maybe a cider. Only down side their ale selection is on the lower side but I just think of my dad he’s a big ale fan. But if you take anything from this review take this great food great people and not badly priced and it’s dog friendly.More

Went for lunch one day and drinks the next. Really good food off a nice menu. We had our kids so we had varying needs and all were met really well. Thoroughly enjoyed it all. Great selection of drinks as well and all at good...prices. Well done to the team and many thanks!More

Popped in for dinner last Friday evening with my mum having not eaten here for a while and our first visit since the change in ownership. The burger was one of the best I’ve had, rivalling the London joints, and came with all the extras...including a generous pot of fab mac & cheese. Would highly recommend and looking forward to trying their brunch menu soon.More

First time eating here since the pub changed hands, a welcoming atmosphere and some new beers on tap. The menu is quite varied but we both fancied burgers. The boyfriend had the cheeseburger, I am veggie and after asking if they could do a veggie...alternative was advised they could do a mushroom and pepper pattie. It was absolutely delicious with 3 patties, crispy fries and homemade macaroni cheese and coleslaw. We were both absolutely stuffed and happy! This is our local and will definitely eat here again soon, looking forward to sampling the brunch menu next.More

First time visiting the pub since the new owners have taken over. Two things worthy of the 5 stars - Neck Oil on tap and the most delicious sausage muffin! My hubby had ‘The Parma’ and he loved it! Prices so reasonable and lovely, friendly...staff. Awesome, thank you 🤩More

We live in the village & this is our local pub. Over the last few years the food has gradually gone down hill and we started eating out in other places. New landlord & family have done an amazing job on the renovations and the...new menu is amazing! Huge portions, very reasonably priced and very tasty food. Dogs also welcome which is a huge bonus for us as we can pop in for lunch on our way home from dog walks.More

The food was absolutely delicious I have had a burger there & a pizza. They have a good range of beers & lovely selection of gins. They have renovated the garden so it’s so much nicer to sit outside & eat when the weather gets...nicer! They also offer Sunday roasts so make sure to come down & have a lovely roast in a tranquil village.More
