“Ok -but currently not the best Old English Inn we've stayed in!”

We had a 2-night stay at The Bell.

Our room was pretty poor:-
There was a simple, wall-mounted electric heater that didn't work. We then noticed a small plug-in fan heater that also did not work on the highest setting -and was noisy on the low setting!
Since the duvet seemed quite lightweight we requested an additional one -and this was duly provided.
(We were particularly glad that the January weather was not too cold during our visit!).
There was only one mug with the tea/coffee facilities. Again, another was provided on request.

The room faced the road and was at times rather noisy -poorly fitted secondary glazing did little to reduce road noise.

Decor in our room was tired and somewhat strange too. For example, a 'feature wall' with classic designed wallpaper and matching curtains -but three totally out of character (colour, style) abstract wall pictures! (Indeed, nothing at all would have been better!)

Meals (including breakfast) across the road in the accompanying pub/restaurant were ok we felt -but again, we've experienced better examples previously in Old English Inns.
Other visitors however were overheard complaining that their breakfasts were cool -and not freshly cooked...

Deepak, the very new manager, did what he could to address the above shortfalls while we were there -and I think, in time, he will help to improve both the running of the place and the quality of the accommodation -providing some financial element is earmarked for necessary improvements.

2 for £10.50 and a 'Todays Specials', make this a very worthwhile stop. Cosy bar and restaurant. Mini Mixed grill was a good buy for an extra pound. The only drawback was the music, which although low did not fit with the relaxed atmosphere of the Inn.

Stayed at the Bell Hotel, food in the pub was nice. Good choice of food on the menu, well priced and great value for money. Bar staff really friendly, and waitress very accommodating.

We often go out for Sunday lunch, and this week were came here - The Bell. Personally, I would recommend it - very decent portion size, hot, tasted fresh, and also a vegetarian option (mushroom/nut roast). If you come after 5pm you can also get 2 roasts for £10.49 - which we may try at some point.
