I had a spicy soup for starter with Pork as my main course. Both were very nicely presented and tasted as good as they looked. The restaurant is most comfortable and nicely laid out with a lot of space between tables and was spotlessly clean. We were greeted on arrival and our coats were taken away to be hung up.... More

9 of us one vegetarian and one vegan. Everyone enjoyed the meal the food was great (fish and chips - the cod was a bit on the small side) However, that was the only negative the other meals were enjoyed. They looked after the vegan very well. Great room for a small group as well.

On a whim the four of us decided to eat out for lunch on Xmas Eve; nothing booked, no inquiring phone calls. A nearby pub flatly refused to take a food order from us! Not even bar food! Dropped in to The Bell and were immediately made to feel very welcome by the friendly staff. Good varied menu, excellently prepared... More

This quality 'pubsterant' being right on the A4 Bath Road is very convenient for the traveller, especially as there is good, easy parking and it's not too distant for the local either. A very pleasant quiet atmosphere with a warm welcome. Our party of four had variously duck liver parfait, beetroot & kale fritters, shrimp with salmon followed by pork,... More

Called in for lunch and from the moment we entered we were made welcome from the friendly staff.Lovely atmospheric restaurant with a good menu choice.Because I was watching what I could eat(doctors orders)they were very willing to mix and match and I really enjoyed the whole experience.Good wheelchair access and we will certainly return.

We loved our meals at The Bell and has a lovely dining room. Enjoyed a delicious fish soup as a starter and would have to have this again when next in the area.
