Reviewed 31 May 2014

This is my 3rd visit to this restaurant and on each occasion I have had a fabulous meal. The atmosphere is great and the staff are very friendly and helpful. There will definitely be a 4th visit soon.

Personal Stay or Company Stay it is surely one of the best places I have stayed so far and I am comparing it to three or four star hotels I stayed in the UK and in various other countries.

Why?
- Great Service
- Awesome Food
Note: I had some of the best meals there, either fish, meat or dessert
Breakfast: Take the Salmon with Scrambled Eggs - What a taste!
Dinner: Everything can be recommended
Highly recommend the Sticky Toffee Pudding as a dessert
- Cozy Feeling during the night
- Clean: Didnt find a single dirty spot

Overall it is one of the best places I stayed and I am going to continue to go there on a regular basis.

Room Tip: Any type of room is great.

Just love this restaurant.

My son and I wanted a quick, early evening meal - we weren't here for any of the yummy fancy foods - tonight simplicity was on our agenda.

Our food was fab - juicy, piled high burger and an elegant pizza.

Always love the decor and the very pleasant staff : Gabi and Lubos are great ambassadors for The Bell.

Not our last visit - it seems The Bell is my first option every time as it is close to home, offers good food and service.

PS: we asked to see the rooms above as we often have visitors. We were shown a nice double. Really well laid out, spacious, with a great shower. I imagine for a weekend visit to Oxford, this would be a really super place to stay, or for the business traveller, very convenient as easy to get onto the motorway - Bicester/Oxford.

All round winner.

I went along the other night on a friends recommendation just for a drink but the food looked so good I stayed and ate, what a fantastic experience: unbelievable food really good service and atmosphere.
I wish we had a place like this in Kent even the prices were very reasonable for the quality you receive.
I had a pint of their real ales before I sat down and that was kept perfectly as well !
I will be going back with my wife very soon and stay in one of their rooms for the weekend I cannot wait!

The Bell provided the perfect location for a 50th Birthday family meal. Excellent food, great atmosphere and friendly, attentive and efficient service. We couldn't fault anything and 3 generations agreed it was the perfect way to celebrate. We would not hesitate to recommend the Bell - and will definitely be paying a return visit.

Stayed the night at The Bell for my birthday treat and I must say if you want a chill out night away then this is a must. The food is excellent as was the breakfast and the interior is very stylish. The only niggle I would have is that when we came down for pre dinner drinks and sat in the bar area we were completely ignored. The waiter was going up to everyone else giving out menus to choose their evening meals but didn't come to us even though we were staying there so I got up and got them myself from reception - we chose what we would like to eat and was once again ignored until I asked if we could order - it was like we were invisible. Once at the table the service was excellent. It is a very popular place and the restaurant was full. We would definitely go back.

Tired and hungry, it took time to find this place.
Am not used to isolated place so for me it was isolated but wow, this is such a lovely place.
We've been welcomed by a nice team who gave us a charming seat with a chimney...
There we enjoyed ales and yummy yummy food (burger and vegetarian Tatin) and the pizza looked just amasing!!!
Service was great but the bill was pricy...
