Good food and lots of it Good food and lots of it. Moderate selection range on the menu, which is often good not to spread too thin. Good atmosphere in the pub, with a more local noisey bar to one side. Nice range of beers too. Excellent pub food.

One of the best pub meals we’ve had! Visited this evening for the first time for my husband’s birthday treat after seeing recommendations on Facebook , honestly one of the best pub meals we’ve had in a long time. A nice range of dishes on the menu, all freshly cooked to order, the chef/owner clearly knows his stuff, generous portions too. The landlady was welcoming and friendly and we had great service all through. Dog friendly as well and we noticed how well cared for the pub and its outside space was. Will definitely be recommending to friends and family and we look forward to our next visit!

Outstandingly good Probably one of the best meals I've had away from home - everything cooked to perfection. The menu, including the daily specials, is interesting. Excellent food, good beer. An excellent venue, pleasant inside and with attentive staff. Toilets nice and clean. Impossible to fault. We're definitely returning.

Good for Gluten Free meals as well as normal meals. Went for 70th Birthday and the meal was excellent. One of the party was gluten free and they knew all about that. The meals are a very good size the gluten free fish and chips was large and had good crispy batter the ordinary fish and chips was even larger. We all had three courses and all were very good. Would recommend this pub for the food and the setting. Highly recommended for gluten free with a good choice of dishes. The service was also very good, there is a small wait between courses because they cook to order and it showed.

Amazing We visited on Easter Sunday and this was by far the best roast we’ve had out. The portion sizes were massive, so much so we had to take the rest of our roast home. The meat was so generous and cooked well. Our waitress was lovely and so helpful. We were a big table with a baby so that was great. We had to book far in advance and you can see why!

Probably the best Sunday roast I’ve ever had! My boyfriend and I enjoyed a Sunday roast for Easter Sunday. The food was absolutely out of this world! Portions are generous offering great value for money. I can highly recommend the lamb shank roast! The Easter Cheesecake was amazing. We shared this as the roast was so filling! The bar staff and waiting staff were extremely friendly and professional at all times. We cannot wait to return to The Bell.
