Living locally, we visit the local pubs for meals out on a regular basis. This is one of the pubs that we have frequented a fair few times over the years, but have to admit, that since Jane and Andre took over, this is now the one that we return to more than the others.
A wonderfully relaxed atmosphere, fantastic hosts and a sympathetically renovated pub. It is clean, fresh and cosy with wonderful food.
Andre is just the most superb chef - we have not had a bad meal since we have been going here, in fact most of the dishes are now all time favourites.
The menu is not extensive, but there is always something that you fancy and if the dish is not quite to your taste then they adapt it to suit your palate. They have a specials menu, that uses seasonal and local produce and offers something a bit different.
Highly recommend a visit - you won’t be disappointed.

Fish and chips, on a Thursday, lol. Special as usual.

p.s. The new owners have only been here for 12 months, so any earlier comments are irrelevant

My wife visited the Bell with her friends and enjoyed the meal. We decided to try for sunday lunch as it had been some time since we visited the Bell. We were not disappointed, every thing from the welcome to the choice of meal was enjoyable. Good food well presented plus a good choice to drink.

Very pleased with our family Saturday dinner. Great service, caring owners/chef and amiable bar/waiting team. Food was very tasty across our three dinners and daughter enjoyed her crumble. Draught beer very drinkable.
Keep up the good work.
