We are from Bristol, we will recommend to our local community (Clifton Village) that they lunch with you when visiting stourhead. We both had haddock and chips which were really good and the service was friendly and welcoming.

Always a lovely meal (Sunday roast or another day of the week) at the Bell & Crown. The food is absolutely top notch, the service is so friendly and the staff a pleasure to engage with. If you haven't been - then you should! If you have been - then you'll know exactly what i'm talking about! Well done Bell & Crown, keep up the great food and service - especially in these testing times for hospitality. The waitress Jo is always a pleasure to see as well :) Warmest regards, Matthew & Lorna.

We really enjoyed our night out. Staff were very good. Few issues. No kids menu so quite pricey for total bill ordering all adult meals for the kids( therefore this would stop us booking in the future with the whole family of 5) The starter - calamari- was on the cold side when served. The main food was all hot though. It was pretty cold sitting outside so the blanket was welcome. The food was very tasty, and a good atmosphere.

I only marked atmosphere after 3 because we had to eat outside for obvious reasons however the throws were appreciated and they had made as much effort as possible to make us comfortable. The food was amazing!

Felt at ease while outside dinning - lacked a bit of atmosphere however this is due to the outside tent dining and covid regulations. Staff friendly and attentive. Great starters and dessert - lamb main was tasty but the cream sauce spoilt the flavour from the lamb and left the chorizo lost. Oils from the chorizo leached into the sauce. Reasonably priced food a drinks - definitely come back and look forward to warmer evenings even better inside dinning.

Very welcoming and friendly staff nothing is to much trouble. The food was amazing and all cooked fresh. The menu is limited as per the times we are in but I prefer that as you know it is all cooked to order. Outside eating area was set out really well also giving you a blanket or 2 on each table for chillier evenings.

Great service and excellent food, will definitely be a regular. Sadly they had two” no shows” whilst we were there! I just think this is disgusting, after 3 plus months of lockdown. SHAME ON YOU!

Wonderful warm welcome despite the chilly weather. Is spite of this, they were well equipped with space heaters, blankets and hot water bottles meaning no- one had to suffer the cold. The staff were friendly and attentive and the food was good - the lamb with white beans was truly delicious. Thanks for the welcome, we will definitely be back soon.

Excellent food and good service, great views! Only criticism is being in the shade; the temperature difference in and out of the sun was quite stark. Overally a great experience thank you.

I cancelled last minute unfortunately and they were very understanding and polite about it. Given the hard times that’s covid has left us with, we were sorry to cancel and very thankful that they were so nice and understanding about it. We will come back, thanks. Joe Kelly
