Unfortunately a cold east wind so even with fleece got cold . Shame some windbreaks could not be erected. Plates also not hot enough help the food stay warmer for longer

Long time customer and big fan. Loved the beer (as always). However, I hate to say it but we were disappointed with the artisan bread starter. Very oily, although we’re not sure how you riast the garlic without it. But we would have loved a homemade soughdough bread, crusty but soft, to dip in hummus or babaganoush.

Lovely lunch. Shame you couldn’t do anything about the weather! But a good set up with cover and fires. Great service.

My first time at The 5 Bells and I will definitely be back. Eating outside is not the best when dealing with the British weather but The 5 Bells crew did everything within their power to make it an enjoyable experience and they succeeded. The food was amazing and as I said well worth a return visit to sample the other delicious sounding dishes on the menu.

The pub itself has done so much work to make it more welcoming to visitors, the food is awesome and very good value for money. Big thanks to the chef also, fantastic job. We will be back again soon.

We both enjoyed an excellent spring inspired Sea Bass, served with asparagus & green beans. Washed down with a pint of IPA brewed onsite. Service is great despite having to trek a long way from the kitchen to outside areas. Great value, a pub certainly on the up. Cheers. Glenn

Easy to book. Good "response" to exiting Lockdown i.e. pub welcoming, good food and drink, table available to us for the afternoon...late Christmas celebration. Yes, food is good all had 2/3 courses and not a complaint to be had. Atmosphere only 4 stars as a bit chilly outside, not pubs fault just the weather sunny but chilly when wind blows...blankets are provided. Now found we will return on our various trips to Wales...much more enticing than your average Motorway Service Station. We had a local walk in the afternoon through the woods etc. very good before we split our various ways back to "partial" lockdowns. Our early arrivers also enjoyed "outside market" (preloaded with Scotch Egg), I assume this is only Saturday morning. Finally forgot to mention the beer...very good and large choice.

A nice lunchtime meetup with family not seen for many months. A lot of effort had been made to cope with C19. 1 x marquee, 1 x covered area as well as plenty of other seating in the garden. Thnx for taking the trouble and all the expense.
