We had several meals at The Bell Hotel. In general, the food was very good and the portions generous. Our only complaint was that the ham sandwich was a little light on ham.

The Bell was great, lovely atmosphere, great food . A lovely selection of food. The banofee pie is scrumptious. Good value for money.

I always enjoy visiting the Bell. Whether just for a drink outside in the summer, a lunchtime snack or dinner in the dining room.

Went there for our wedding anniversary with both our families. There was another party going on and clearly it was too much for the staff. We waited forever to place our orders and it took ages for our drinks to finally arrive...We were even about to leave! Then, we waited even more for our food. Starters finally arrived and portions were ridiculously small. The food itself was bland and overrated. We waited again ages for our mains which were even more disappointing. Some of the food was cold and again, portions were really small. We were so disappointed we were very close to leave and forget about our desserts however as it was our wedding anniversary, we stayed and desserts were average. The quality of service given the price is not to the standard of what you would expect. It is not right to wait that long for drinks and food (which is not even tasty). It is not the first time we have been disappointed by the service and food at The Bell however it was certainly the last time as we will not return to this restaurant. The pub itself is nice and pleasant but I really do not recommend the restaurant unless they change their service quality and review their prices.

ok its an easy pun, a sandwich in Sandwich! We were peckish after our seal spotting trip [see separate review] so popped in for a pot of tea and a snack - we had a cheddar sandwich served on a board, lovely fresh bread with a side salad and a delicious olive oil and wholegrain mustard dressing.
we sat in the window so we could watch the river as we ate - if you're a 'foody' theres a shelf of cookery books to browse through. Thoroughly recommended.
