Had a great time! Good atmosphere and great Sunday lunch!
Enjoyable meal and great entertainment. Bright conservatory area and garden.
Excellent food and service. I will write a review on Trip advisor
Great atmosphere as always great food and great service highly recommended
Really nice environment, was lovely for Saturday lunch, not jammed, but good, busy atmosphere. Was lone female for a while, while waiting for friends who'd been delayed - but felt very comfortable. Very nice food and very accommodating chef; who made adjustments to help with restricted diet of one our party. Bar staff also very nice, friendly - loaned me phone as had forgotten mobile and was trying to contact others. Car Park was larger than I remember and is quite an asset as parking in the immediate location not easy - so car park a big plus. HIGHLY RECOMMEND and will be returning.
Three women of a certain age - yes, ladies who lunch - decided to try the Lunch Club deal. Good value at £9. 95 each including a main course, drink (including a glass of wine or a pint of beer). Two of us ate the gigantic fish and chips and report that the fish in enormous batter wedge was slightly undercooked, but nevertheless delicious and the chips were hot, crispy and perfect. The third of us had a warm chicken and chirizo salad which was rather greasy and did not contain all the ingredients stated (e.g. no new potatoes). Service was cheerful, pub was very busy so we had to hurry them up to get our order, but staff were trying hard and we would go again for the value (under £10 each with a very nice cold wine spritzer included) See you soon.
Took friends from NZ to a place we like. Good food as always but disappointed having to wait a very long time for someone to acknowledge me at the bar to say we had arrived (one member of staff who had seen me but carried on filling a dishwasher and who then served someone else ahead of me who had arrived whilst I waited). After spending time studying menu two of the party wanted duck burger only to be told as we ordered them that no duck was available as no delivery had arrived. It would have been helpful to know this as we were handed the menu not as we placed the order. No bottle if sparkling water available either apparently due to the lack of delivery. Disappointing this time, and not consistent with our usual experience.
I went here for dinner on a Saturday night. The food was good and the service okay (there just were not enough people working it seems to cover both the small number of diners in the restaurant and the bar adequately). The big problem was with the band, which started at 8 PM and continued pretty much to 12 o'clock… The park was full of musicians and every few minutes the lineup changed. Some lineups were good, others definitely not to my taste! Quite frankly this was interesting and lots of people that were enjoying it… But it was way too loud and meant people in the restaurant could not have a conversation as this was totally drowned out by the music. So on a Saturday night I would urge the pub to start the band later, say 9:30 PM. Otherwise I would only recommend the restaurant on a Saturday for people generally looking to sit in silence and listen to music, with very limited opportunities for conversation between the songs
The interior of the pub is nice and bar staff were friendly. We were disappointed by the food - very uninspiring despite sounding great on the menu. Very little choice for non meat eaters and I ended up with a haloumi salad that I have to say was terrible - the haloumi was clearly just diced from the packet and I'd have hoped it would be at least grilled (which was how the haloumi on the starter menus was so clearly an option) and the salad was just a mass of leaves. I'd expected more for the price! Everyone else's food was deemed 'ok'. It's a nice venue for a family meal out but I woudn't necessarily recommend the food.
The Bell Inn has a very good casual atmosphere. The staff are friendly and helpful. Have eaten there twice in 5 weeks and the menu was the same so limited choice if you are frequent. Also limited wine choice. However, food was good, plentiful and well presented.
