Come for a family xmas dinner in January. The surf and turf was just amazing. I had bernaise sauce and chips. The steak was succulent and the lobster was amazing. Worth every penny if not more. Highly recommend.

Visited mid December and they couldn't do enough for us. Staff were really polite and professional. Food was amazing. Portion sizes are excellent and the steak was cooked exactly as we asked. They were delicious. Desserts were just lush too. Great prices too. Would thoroughly recommend going.

My wife and I chose the filet stake and it was cooked lovely along with the chips that it was served with (not sure what they were cooked in but they were very tasty). If you want to have a really tasty meal at reasonable prices, then this is... More

FANTASTIC!!! Amazing food, the steaks are HUGE, massive! Cooked superbly. The rest is good, but the special mushrooms that were served with our meal were out of this world!! Really lovely. The staff at The Bell are so friendly, everyone is welcome here. We were a party of 23 and the staff were smiling throughout the evening. Service was excellent.... More

Attended the monthly steak night in the newly refurbished restaurant area. Firstly the service by Rachel and Dean was fantastic! Even though the pub got busier throughout the night they remained attentive and both worked like trojans! The decor was relaxing with low level music and great pictures and lighting (not a child's toy in sight!). Nathan the chef is... More

We are a family run traditional English pub, serving a selection of beers wines and spirits as well as guest ales and ciders from local breweries. We strive for a fun and friendly relaxed atmosphere as our main focus is the community around us in our small village. Our fantastic sized beer garden is a great place to relax in the summer time and likewise our heart warming fireplace and cosy sofas are perfect for a winter warmer. We are also proud to represent our local petanque, darts and crib teams. Look out for the quiz night every Sunday night, live music nights once a month as well as discos, karaoke nights and charity fundraisers. In 2014 we won the Huntingdonshire Camra Community Pub of the Year
