It was first time back at The Bell since the fir and they have done a decent job on creating a family friendly venue. I went in with some friends from uni on a Tuesday afternoon - big mistake! I don't mind kids but there were quite a few running around the place and being very noisy because kids eat for £1 with any main meal on Tuesday's meaning it was very popular with the mums!
I ordered the "Chicken New Yorker". I really wished I sent it back. The two chicken breasts were really dry and to me it tasted like it had been cooked in a microwave. The peas were overcooked so the only thing that was good in this dish was the chips and BBQ Sauce. I only ate it because I was starving and I hate making complaints because the staff on the day I went were excellent but very busy so I didn't want to bother them.
I shared a chocolate brownie ice cream sundae with a friend and that was delicious plus good value for money.
So for a drink, main meal and dessert my part of the bill was £15ish which is reasonable but like these types of pub chains, you get what you pay for.
