We had a good meal here. I think I would have preferred a slightly longer menu and the dishes all seemed to have one ingredient too many. However reasonable price and well cooked and good service

I have been here twice in the last month and most recently went for a celebration with family and friends and left disappointed. Due to the stature of the hotel and its position, it feels like the Bell doesn't have to do a great deal...More

Many of our friends from Ireland stayed at the Bell Hotel Sandwich while attending our son Cormacs wedding. Our guests ate as a group at the Old Dining Room.....They had nothing but high praise for food and staff. Thank you.

We ate from the A La Carte menu. A good selection of starters, mains and desserts. I had 2 vegetarian choices for starters and mains. Staff were friendly yet professional and we didn't feel hurried at any time.

We love the location and ambiance, however, the food has really gone downhill and is very difficult to get coffee after 9pm, because the 'machine is off'. Shame

Great food. Fantastic welcome. Comfortable surroundings. We have stayed in the hotel, lovely luxurious rooms. We often pop in for a drink and we have lunch and sometimes dinner. We love it!

Part of the very successful Bell Hotel, providing a comfortable formal dining room, a large well-lit bar overlooking the terrace, and the terrace itself, to choose from. Not cheap, but very good quality and exceptional service from a group of very charming local girls. Portions...More
