About The Bell Inn
Here at The Bell Inn, we offer delicious food, simply prepared, using the freshest locally sourced produce. Enjoy our menu in one of three dining areas to fit your mood! Choose from our relaxed, traditional bar or light and airy Garden Room overlooking our beautiful New Forest Garden. Or choose the Oak Room, our quintessentially country farmhouse dining room.
Lovely atmosphere. Nice to be able to take our tea and coffee into the comfy area after we had eaten our meal.
Food was absolutely lovely
Excellent first visit, I would have no reservations in returning or in recommending.
Sunday lunch was extremely good, quality of food and the efficiency of staff with their service is excellent, the staff are friendly and smiley. It was most enjoyable
We love the Bell, it wasn’t our first visit but the food was absolutely spot on! When we bring friends here they’re always so surprised. Your chef is excellent- the pork and chicken were absolutely lovely and, when we’re deciding where to go for dinner, the name of the Bell Inn is up there in our choices along with Jetty and Chewton Glen.
We had an amazing afternoon, the staff were very helpful and on hand to provide extra tea and coffee but also gave us space and privacy . Thank you very much, my Mum loved her surprise afternoon tea with her friends.
Special mention for the lovely guy behind the bar - very welcoming. So refreshing when our red wine was brought to the table presented opened and left to breathe 10/10 Will definitely return. Thank you
Delicious lunch at a very welcoming venue.
We came few weeks ago and absolutely loved it , bought friends back for birthday and really disappointed with few things , my crab salad was really shocking ! Loads mayonnaise and no crab , all runny ! Couldn’t say on day as would ruin big birthday , drink order seem to take forever ! Roasts were really good and bread boards
Lovely place to stay, cannot fault it.
Really enjoy this hotel, stayed a fair few times. Rooms are good, some areas need sprucing up, but the food is simply fantastic, with a great bar and great staff, they really make it.. but being woken at 5:30am when furniture is moved around spoilt my wife’s birthday stay somewhat.. price is a little steep, but all in all a good stay.
We did have to complain and ask to be moved. We were put in the bar, where we had to be squeezed into a table where we couldn’t move and had to listen to the coffee machine and people at the sofas having a coffee session, once we were moved to the dining room it was fine. However, I do think with your prices we should have been put in your dining room in the first place! I booked this table weeks ago and confirmed the day before if you were going to put us in the bar you should have told us because we wouldn’t have come!
A very friendly welcome by all the staff and excellent food.
Nice food. Service average, we were forgotten.
The pudding was a rip off. £7.50 for the tiniest piece of apple Dorset cake, it was barely bite sized, with tiny spots of toffee sauce. Disappointing. That said the service was amazing and the place had a warm welcoming atmosphere, such a shame the food let it down.
Had really excellent experience , great friendly staff and cosy bar , food great too , back on 10 th for a birthday can’t wait :))
Beautiful and imaginative food. A little pricey, but fine for a special occasion. Pam
We will be back soon... So so good from the moment we arrived.. Looking forward to the Xmas menu...
Excellent service & food - Have already booked again! Highly recommended
We stumbled across this jewel! The food was absolutely delicious and beautifully presented. The atmosphere, although we were expecting an “old pub” feeling was a chic country interior hidden within a 1782 building. Highly recommend and l look forward to bring our tourist groups here.
A very relaxing enjoyable experience.
Excellent service and very good food. Choices on menu give something for everyone. Looking forward to going back again
Excellent service Amazing food Only comment there was loads of salt ok our toddlers chips but you kindly replaced them 😃.
Absolutely excellent - ate there Saturday and Sunday just gone and also stayed there last year. Being dog friendly in the bar is more than a bonus for us - it’s vital! Have had first hand experience of the Bell Inn for over 15 years and it is now better than ever. Really can’t fault it 👌👏👏
We all had a brilliant evening, everything was great, brilliant venue, brilliant food, staff excellent, nothing was too much trouble
