Myself, Col Waffle & the dog were on holiday in the Cotswolds & having a stroll around Chipping Campden & then suddenly it was lunchtime! So we popped into the 8 Bells & were made very welcome by the delightful staff - the dog was given a bowl of water before we'd even asked, which he very much appreciated! The Colonel had a bacon, brie & cranberry ciabatta, which he really enjoyed & said didn't need the embellishment of the fries or salad that he was offered! I had cheddar & chutney ciabatta & a mountain of salad. Yummy! And such a lovely atmospheric old pub, too. Highly recommended!

I love the charm and friendliness of the Eight Bells. My room was clean and well equipped. Bed was really comfy and I had a great nights sleep.
Location is super in Chipping Campden - perfectly placed and parking just outside the door and free.
I had a great meal with friends and whilst I left too early to enjoy the breakfast I am sure it would have been fabulous if supper was anything to go by.
I would recommend the Eight Bells for it,s character and charm first and foremost combined with super value for money. I will certainly stay again.

Room Tip: I stayed in room 2 it was large and well positioned.

Chipping Campden is a really pretty Cotswold town.Lots of hotels/pubs and restaurants. We arrived on Friday lunchtime. The room wasn't ready (not unexpected as we arrived at 12.30), but the welcome was warm and the complimentary drink in the bar most welcome! We had a couple more drinks in the bar and then were shown our room about 2pm. We were in room 3 which is the small double, and it is small! But we knew that as that what we had booked, and we only intended to sleep and shower there anyhow. It was comfortable enough. We ate in the hotel on the Friday night and the food was fine. I wouldn't rave about it. I personallydid not think there was a great deal of choice. But what we had was reasonably priced, the restaurant had a nice ambience and the service was very good. (To put it in perspective we ate at the Mediterrean Resturant in town on the Saturday night and paid an AWFUL lot more for a not exceptionally good meal...). And so to the breakfasts......Saturday morning we had the full English to set us up for our walk along the Cotswold Way to Broadway......and it certainly did that. Decent tea, OJ and plentiful cereals/toasts/jams also (though we didn't partake of more than the tea and the OJ as the full English didn't leave room for anything else) On Sunday, we had fresh fruit, followed by smoked salmon and scrambled eggs. Delicious and also very filling!
All in all a very pleasant weekend in Chipping Campden, and a really nice stay at the Eight Bells.

My Grandmother stayed here for a few nights, The room wasnt overly large but nice, only negative was there was no telephone in the room which was quite disconcerting. We ate in the Bar one evening and food was very lovely however it was very busy, obviously a watering hole on a weekend.
Staff were nice especially Marie, Just think the room was a little over priced for what you get

We stayed for just one night on a special deal through booking.com. The pub itself is charming and the owners are very friendly. When checking in we were given a form to complete with the promise of a free drink once done. A very nice gesture. Our room was quite large although a bit on the chilly side to start with as the radiators had been turned down. The bed was comfortable and there was plenty of drawers and wardrobe space. The bathroom was lovely but as with all old buildings the water pressure wasn't great. Our room was above the bar and there was some noise (as to be expected) but the pub isn't open late so it wasn't a problem. We ate in the bar in the evening. The menu is quite small and slightly on the pricey side however we enjoyed our meals. The cheese and biscuits we ordered for dessert was a little disappointing. The three cheeses served were a bit boring (cheddar, stilton and brie) and the homemade chutney had been replaced by a very sweet sort of fruit jam. However the kitchen was due to close a couple of days later for a refurbishment so this may have had something to do with it. The highlight of the stay however was the breakfast. The fresh fruit salad and yoghurt was delicious and for the main course there was plenty of choice and it was all freshly cooked to order. The service was excellent.

Stayed six nights in October - comfortable room and bed - the restaurant is always top notch and staff are very helpful and friendly. Great breakfast as well - If you like staying in Pubs (Inns) rather than hotels as we do, the Eight Bells is a wonderful choice. Enjoy. If you can't get a room and are in the neighborhood, call for a dinner reservation and enjoy a great meal or just drop in for a pint.
