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.
A very cosy welcoming venue,with very quick service however our main course [christmas dinner] and the separate vegetables were cold and served on cold plates and dishes. Our enjoyment was also hampered by an extremely loud and boisterous group seated near us making conversation very difficult, although this was not the fault of staff. Will probably try it again after xmas.
Excellent lunch time meal. Great staff. Well done.
Great pub, attentive service when you caught the staffs eye
We booked our table in October and were very disappointed when I rang to check two days prior to our booking, that we could not have the Christmas menu as originally requested as we had not given 7 days notice. We had not been told at the time of booking that we had to confirm that. The.menu was therefore not very seasonal and the battered fish and chips rather greasy and we both ate less than half of the main course. I have dined with you several times but on this occasion we felt let down.
Yet another visit to The Bell and as usual excellent service, pleasant environment and great food. We have introduced several friends and relations to the restaurant and the option of a vegan meal is a great addition.
Had our staff Christmas party here, lovely place. great food and friendly staff. We will be back.
Very friendly and helpful service. Lovely food beautifully presented
If your looking for a cosy night away with fantastic food look no further. The inn was perfect for what we wanted. The room so was so clean and cosy. The bar and restaurant staff were friendly and very accommodating. The food was a very huge standard and in expected in a pub environment. We couldn’t of enjoyed t more. Thank you so much.
Very accommodating to the 18moth old who we brought with us, although the large plate her dinner was served on didn’t fit on the high chair !
just love this place- the food is fabulous & excellent value, the surroundings are very comfy & service is excellent. Just wish we could get here more often.
Staff friendly and efficient. Roast dinner very good but the pork a bit fatty. Desserts very nice but the crumble needs more than a ‘shot’ of custard!
Amazing food, steak was cooked to perfection. Service was very good. Amazing decor and very nice.
ANOTHER WONDERFUL LUNCH !
Excellent meal and very comfortable stay.Thank you
Tom’s Burgers were cooked to perfection and would definitely recommend them. The only negative was that despite it not being very busy service was quite slow.
Lovely well priced afternoon tea, lovely place will be back
Dinner was a nice experience, the dishes were creative but lacked flavour. We were expecting a much higher quality meal given the Rosettes. Service for breakfast the second morning was a bit erratic. Service was very friendly but coffee took 20 minutes to come out. There could be a few more hot dish options. Very limited for vegetarians.
I took my mum here for a birthday lunch, the food was delicious especially the desserts! staff very friendly, welcoming and helpful. They put some balloons on the table and also brought out an iced slate which read 'Happy Birthday' and some ice cream on the house. I thought this was a really lovely touch and showed effort on the part of the restaurant. Thank you very much, i will definitely be recommending and visiting again!
As always everything was superb. I shall book for Christmas next year, pity they are full up this year.
A lovely relaxed atmosphere with fantastic food.
Excellent and attentative service - brilliant and could not fault
Booked one night with dinner at this beautiful village hotel. Room and lounge/bar area was warm and welcoming. Staff very friendly. Reception staff excellent. The best part was the outstanding food created by the Chef. I have to say it was the best food I have had in the New Forest. Top marks for the Chef and his team. We will return.
Beautiful food in a beautiful environment. The staff achieved a perfect balance of being friendly but professional.
Very welcoming and courteous staff. Our room was spacious and very clean
My booking of 35 for Sunday lunch was brilliant. Not a single issue and the food was lovely. All my guests commented on the quality of the food and the excellent service from the staff. Many thanks for a lovely afternoon.
