Sad to say they do not appreciate local customer comments despite coming here for 14 years.
Dont expect special treatment but if something isn't quite as it should be, they should take it on board, its our regular pub.
Dont feel appreciated and won't return.

Picked up 2 take away meals. Fish and chips were very large portion. Cumberland sausage meal was 2 very small tasteless sausages with a dollop of mash filling half a polystyrene carton. The other polystyrene carton was filled with enough garden peas for 4 people rather than 2 but at least it was more full than the main course. I would not have paid £4.95 for the sausages & mash meal let alone £8.95. We live locally and wanted to support local business but after our experience today would think twice. Shame as staff very friendly and as said the fish & chips looked divine. A memorable meal for the wrong reasons......

Booked last minute and ate out in the garden. Prompt service and friendly staff, food was tasty. The only criticisms are that the menu hasn’t changed for years and some items are a little overpriced, however we had a great time and will defo be back in the future

We had just had a day at Lydden motorbike races and had booked a table at the Lydden Bell pub.
We were so well looked after and the safety measures for C-19 were just right. The staff were wonderful and the food was a pleasure every mouth full. Such a lucky find. Very happy customers.
