“Fabulous!”
Reviewed 6 June 2014

We were lucky to get these rooms we realised, as upon arrival we were told that they were late cancellations. Due to a local festival in Chipping Campden the place was packed. What a great surprise! The staff at the Eight Bells were so friendly as were the locals. We had a king size room overlooking the garden terrace, which was decorated beautifully. We had dinner in the dining room our first evening and the food did not disappoint. The bar area was relaxed and we were made to feel completely at home. Perfect weekend getaway. Thanks to all at the Eight Bells.

Room Tip: Room 5 king size was contemporary, room 6, contemporary, but with olde worlds charm and beams!

We stayed two nights at the end of walking the Cotswold Way.
Friendly welcome. Small but comfortable room- good bed and great shower.
the food here really scores - slow-ish service but well worth the wait.
Good beer - (the Hooky is great)
Breakfast was very good- prompt service and (too) big portions.

Had dinner with friends from Broadway in April, 2014. Great restaurant which is old english architecture with lots of character. Sat near the fire on a cool night! Great made to order food. Two of us had traditional fish & chips with mushy peas which was great, one had pasta, and one had local sausages which were huge so he took one home to his dog! Excellent service and would highly recommend restaurant to anyone visiting cotswold area!

Lovely food, great atmosphere and welcoming homely rooms.

Beautiful rooms, had a great nights sleep didn't even realise I was not at home.

Lovely atmosphere in the evenings in such a breath taking town.

You can taste the good quality raw ingredients in the food with very generous portions. Extremely satisfying.

Thank you for a wonderful stay!

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.
