we live outside the area, but took a friend who is local for lunch recently as she had been previously. What a lovely surprise. A superb setting in a small village, this place is a treasure. Passing the pretty frontage of the pub, with people enjoying the sunshine, the manicured gardens greet you as you park at the rear of...

We stayed for 3 nights and ate in the restaurant for 2. We had a standard room and I asked for a bath, which was a lovely roll top, nice and deep and it could fit in 2 of us, just as well as there was no shower only the hand held one on bath. We had room 5 on...

Went to a birthday party with over 40 guests,plus there was another party in the adjacent room. How the brilliant staff managed to bring such superb food, piping hot to all of us was amazing. Nothing was too much trouble for anyone. The staff were faultless. The place is very pretty with a lovely atmosphere. I stayed overnight. The room...

We have just returned from staying at The Bell. Our room was lovely, spotlessly clean. The staff very welcoming. We had an evening meal which was wonderful. Breakfast also good. The ambience of this Country Inn is quality.

Was looking for somewhere to meet parents for lunch as Kidlington is about half way for us. Checked trip advisor but no other place had the appeal that The Bell had. Yes we met here a while back but as we all enjoyed the experience we all agreed it had to be visited again. Great decision. Again from the initial...

Stayed here for an off-site meeting with a couple of colleagues. Was extremely impressed by the whole stay. Really enjoyed the food in the restaurant (lunch, dinner and breakfast). The bedroom was also excellent. Had recently been redecorated. Huge bathroom and excellent shower. I certainly hope to visit again with my wife but to enjoy a weekend break (rather than...

First time here with partner and friends. Four of us eating on Saturday night. We were welcomed at the bar and given some menus while we waited for our table. Being Saturday it was busy so we had booked in advance which I would recommend. I had Shrimp to start; a bit messy on the fingers as they need shelling...

Hotel located in country on a rather busy road. Room was lovely, well furnished and in a cosy cottage style. Food served in restaurant was excellent as was the service, thoroughly recommend a visit to their restaurant.

We met up with family on Tuesday for an 18th Birthday celebration. When I booked the table I had made a point of telling the Bell our reason for lunch but it wasn't even mentioned on the day. The welcome was lacking. We had rustic bread to start but was not offered the choice of oil or butter so had...

Thank you for time taken to review the Bell and I am very disappointed to hear about your experience. I do remember your reservation and yes I must admit that it was not the best lunch. However as I was aware of the situation and we were short of staff, I hoped that you would understand the situation therefore discount...
