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 place to stay in the New Forest. My only criticism would be that the buffet breakfast was disappointing. They had the smallest fresh fruit salad ever which was mostly apple. No Danish pastries and when we were there they ran out of croissants before we came down to breakfast.
Great roast beef! Lovely staff. Highly recommend for Sunday lunch
Fantastic meal with great service. Our black Labrador was thoroughly spoilt. Thank you 😊
Excellent lunch, plenty of choice
A very pleasant evening - good food, service and ambiance in a lovely part of the New Forest
The whole team of bar staff and restaurant staff were welcoming, efficient and had wonderful smiles.!! Am issue with the card machine not connecting was dealt with to preserve the cards identity and not charge us twice but I will check my account to be sure!!!
The food was superb. The menu offered a wonderful range of dishes, all of which sounded superb. In particular, it was fantastic to see a choice of vegetarian meals that are not the 'usual' fare of British restaurants. The desserts were also notable for being a bit different and beautifully presented - the pistachio parfait and Sicilian lemon were both utterly delicious. The only thing that slightly spoiled an otherwise lovely evening was a group of old men on a nearby table who were coarse and loud, but sadly, this can happen anywhere.
Lovely venue, fantastic food, will definitely visit again
My good lady and myself travelled from Ascot to the Bell Inn usually a quick hours drive a little longer this time due to M3 grief therefore was looking forward to our lunch Starters were lovely and my main was warm but the veg was stone cold. The good lady's main was cold and had to be sent back (Gnocchi) Most unusual service for the Bell Inn as it is usually perfect, but on this occasion we were left disappointed We will go back but one more small complaint and it will be a new location for this trip which we both look forward to
Great food would recommend the fish and chips!
Fantastic staff, very efficient, friendly and attentive
Celebrating a birthday, a last minute booking. Very good meal with excellent service from our waitress
Good service, friendly staff and a very good meal. Also, an excellent sound track playing over dinner.
Food excellent. Good choice of dishes on the menu, plus specials. Homemade ice cream was fantastic.
We had a lovely evening. Staff very attentive.
A really lovely evening; one of the best meals that I have had in a little while.
We had a great lunch in such a lovely setting. Our waitress was excellent, really helpful and friendly. Many thanks!
The food was fantastic. Beautifully presented and extremely flavoursome. I have dined at some Michelin starred restaurants and I would have to say that with a couple of tiny tweaks this restaurant and food would be right up there with the very best.
A really lovely find only two criticisms it was quiet so lacked atmosphere and secondly the sautés potatoes and veg were drenched in butter even James Martin would raise his eyebrow. Having said that a lovely meal, a varied menu and nice accommodating staff. Will return
Excellent food. We shared Whitebait for starter and lamb and pork chop for mains. All delicious and clearly good quality meat . Mains were a generous size and we could have omitted the starter. Excellent service frim Belarus waitress was a bonus ! Felicity & Tony
