We've eaten here on several occasions and have not been disappointed. The food is good and the staff are friendly...what more can you ask! This is our local pub so we're lucky to have it on our doorstep!

I recently returned to this pub for the second time to try out the Mexican night after such an enjoyable meal on a previous occasion. The staff were again very friendly and efficient and the menu was brilliant with a superb variety of Mexican dishes whilst the usual menu was resumed for those who were less keen on Mexican food. The food was delicious, well flavoured and beautifully presented. I couldn't fault it! Once again I had a wonderful evening here and I would highly recommend it!

The new owner has certainly made some good changes to this loveley pub. Service is lovely and polite and the food was just spectacular. Would recommend this pub to anyone.

Recently held an important birthday at The Bell's function room for my wife. Even though we had to book the day before and choose food, the staff and chef were very flexible and helpful. The chef did an amazing job with the food and even went out of his way to ensure the hot food arrived on time. Great value for money and we had loads of food for everyone. Would definitely go back and would recommend them for your party.

Walked up from the canal for an evening meal based upon past reviews. Despite the history, the atmosphere is surprisingly uninspiring - a typical local pub stuck on a main road. The barmans' service was pleasant and efficient and our order arrived quite quickly. Sadly the excellent service could not disguise the lack of care paid to the poor quality food - my starter had clearly been microwaved too long so the french bread had become impossible to chew. My sons £12 burger was dry & tasteless with two slices of processed cheese! No-one in our family was remotely pleased with what they had ordered - the only reasonable plate was the stilton and walnut pate which was simply blue cheese mashed up with walnuts, not much of a challenge there, but served with one slice of cheap wholemeal bread?! For the high prices this place is charging the food quality is a disgrace - if you're on the canal the Barge Inn is far more practical and the food can surely never be as poor as this?
