We were all extremely happy with the quality of our meals. Lots of positive comments about the beef roasts, except that the broccoli was just that bit too al dente. It was the men at the table actually who ordered the roasts and they didn't say a word all the way through, lunch apart from making content little noises. The ladies didn't mind. I had the fish stew which was cooked to perfection and the fish was gorgeous (would have loved a bit more fish though) and a slight tweak to the seasoning would have made the dish really sing! All in all wonderful food, great service, and ambiance. Can't wait to visit again.

Would it be possible to add a vegetarian roast option - our local pubs in Oxford do nut roast or nut roast wellington or a vegetable/bean terrine which can be eaten alongside the trimmings and ensure everyone can have a roast dinner. Not many veggie options on the menu, sorry I sound poncy but I am not a big meat eater and prefer not to eat it. Thanks for a lovely dinner!

Last visit here was in 1969, so, some changes.!! All to the better, I think. This was a joint anniversay/birthday get-together with the entire family, and everyone agreed it was a splendid evening. Food choices and service were excellent, and the food was very well presented, hot, and delightfully tasty; a most enjoyable evening. The only comment to make: I would suggest an additional main 'meat' choice on the menu might be considered - there was only venison (Excellent) and steak (also Excellent) on offer? Would definitely recommend a visit!

Really liked the incentive with your wine selection. We have never seen that before so it was refreshing to experience something new. Service was exceptional and the food was amazing. We did get a little toasty at our table, but that was well appreciated with the cold weather!

Had a never lovely meal at The Bell. The service at atmosphere is spot on. Starters and desserts lovely. Mains very good ladies enjoyed their Fish and chips and burger delicious! Only down side was the Steak Kidney Mushroom and Guinness pie us men had. Meat very nice however the gravy in it was very thin almost watery and disappointing layer of pastry top that was so thin it just dissolved was it hit the gravy. Been before and had a lovely roast and it wouldn't stop us from returning, however do hope these comments and taken on board.

I was disappointed that there was only one vegetarian option as a main course. A menu with no choice is unusual these days. I plumped instead for a starter and pudding, both of which were very good and the Sapperton ale is good too.

Although our booking was for 2.30, and one of our party was slightly late, clearly the kitchen wanted to finish before they would normally allow timing for a three course meal. Our main had been prepared too early and been sitting under a heat lamp I would think. I understand staff want to leave as soon as possible after a busy lunch time and before they're back for the evening however, I would suggest you do not offer 2.30 as a time available for booking. Having said that, the staff we dealt with were excellent and the food very good. Anne

We took our friends out to celebrate a 50th birthday for Sunday lunch. Service was slick and welcoming as always, and lunch really tasty and well presented. Thank you. It was my second visit in a week and both were excellent.

We had a lovely evening. Only two comments to make. Our dinner wine came before our aperitifs. The wine wasn't cold enough. Also the prawn tempura starter was disappointing - the prawns were straight from the cash and carry freezer (I know because I buy them all the time!). For £8 we'd have expected the chef to rustle up some tempura batter! Other than that - a delicious meal with friendly service in a lovely pub. Jayne
