Very pleasant and patient waitress. Pleasant surroundings, glad we were by the fire. Food all fine. Lots of parking. A fine destination pub. .

A lovely way to spend a Sunday lunchtime. Lunch was very good and we were very happy with service. Left feeling relaxed and satisfied.

We had not been for a while as the food had gone off. The food last week was great and we all enjoyed it. Good pub food, healthy and tasty and not ‘messed about with’. The service is always lovely by your young team and they make it for me. We are Looking forward to our next visit! Karen Hargreaves

We had an early family Christmas celebration in the private dining room. The whole experience was really enjoyable , we felt very well looked after and well catered for with our various diets. We would definitely use the venue again.

Service was a bit slow to start. This wasn’t a problem for us but it could be for others. Otherwise it was very good as always.

We had a fantastic family lunch in the dining room - the service from Emily & Rosie was brilliant, as was the communication with Peter to confirm the booking. We would recommend The Bell for groups and will definitely be back again - gorgeous food and excellent atmosphere - thank you!

The food was fabulous, the pub was amazing - unfortunately a male member of your service team who spoke with an accent was so rude and abrupt, he actually ruined our experience in what could have been a 10/10 Total let down for all the good and hard work everyone else was clearly putting in.

I have been coming to the Bell for 19 years and I will continue to come whenever I am in the area. Standards are still at the same high level that they have always been since my first visit all those years ago. I thought that the quality of service and food was excellent and the owner was extremely helpful and kind going out of his way to find a table for my friends and I went he was near fully booked on a Saturday night. I will definitely return again on my next visit to the area.

We were a party of 9 with 5 kids for Sunday dinner. They managed to fit us in at short notice and prepared the dining room for us. When we turned we had our own private room with roaring log fire and all perfectly laid out. This was perfect when dining with kids as we could really relax without feeling we were disturbing any of the other guests. The food was great, the portions are very generous, came out really quickly and was very tasty. Even better however was the service. The young lady that served us was absolutely amazing. She was really friendly, attentive and helpful, and catered for everything we needed. Best service I can remember. Just brilliant. The bill was a bit eye-watering but all in all worth the money. Will definitely come again!

You are definitely my go to Pub/ dining experience in the area.... you have definitely edged ahead of the Village Inn @ Barnsley in the past 6 months. I have been 3 times in the last month, and have had great food and service each time.... keep it going! Also, booking on line works well.... so glad I did last Sunday when you were really busy!

Great pub and food but slightly spoiled by the time limit put on the table of 1 hour and 45mins!? Table was booked on a Friday eve at 8pm and although we stayed until 11pm we were only 1 of 2 tables still in the pub and I did feel like the staff ( although perfectly polite and asking if we wanted last drinks before the bar closed) were just waiting for us to leave. Shame as this really does effect the atmosphere
