We had lunch in the conservatory, served by a delightful team of young ladies. It was a belated Mother's Day lunch and we were treated to an imaginative menu in a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere. I would certainly recommend you try The Bell at Godstone and like Arnie...I'll be back.

Popped in for lunch to find it was very full ( on a Monday!), but the staff squeezed us in although we had not booked. My wife and I opted for the set menu as it offered a good choice at a very good price and we were very satisfied with the quantity and quality. The staff were really attentive and friendly despite it being very busy and the food and drinks arrived promptly.. There was a decent range of beer; lager and wine too. All in all a very satisfying experience and no wonder it is so popular. Our only criticism is that some of the chairs are plain wood and too uncomfortable for anything other than a short stay.

Was taken to lunch by Financial Advisor, arrived at 12.45 ordered one course which arrived at 2.20, yes it was busy, but 2 of the dishes were steak, one steak a fillet was cooked medium to well done, rare was requested, the other was small but cooked correctly. I should of been back at work at 2. The table next to us also complained about the long wait. They did reduce the bill!

Do not have the Sunday roast. presumably prepared for lunchtime service, on Sunday evening. Quite shockingly bad.

A chicken salad and a grilled salmon dish were fine.

We recently had to travel to London and as usual left our car at Oxted as there was a better return train service than if we had travelled from Crowborough. We felt like a quite bite on our way home and popped into the Bell - having not been in there for many years. What was an end of the day pub meal turned into the highlight of the day! The Bell is now more a restaurant than a pub with bright modern decor and friendly staff. Michelle in the restaurant did her best to ensure we were well looked after. The food was of superb quality and the choice of wines on par with any top restaurant we have visited. We were so pleased with the meal and the service we have vowed to make this a regular visit when we go to London!!
Good food, Friendly Staff and Convenient Location - it has it all.
