Booked for sunday lunch, we were a table of 6. We enjoyed your wine shop and took full advantage of it, as usual. ( we've eaten with you before for leisure and business). Your wine is part of why we chose to come to the Bell. We were very disappointed with the food we were served. Starters were ok, but the mains extremely poor. Underprepared root veg that was simply too big and then undercooked. Potatoes that had been roasted what appeared to have been several hours earlier and were stale and hard. Extremely thin roast beef , just 2 slices, that was simply undercooked ( as opposed to cooked rare). So the meat didn't really feature at all on the plate. We commented to staff who offered dessert at no charge. I'm afraid this didn't make up for such a poor lunch. Would like to recommend you, as we like your wine ethos, but sadly we can't.
wonderful atmospheric dining.
I have come here a few times with my family on a Saturday but this was the first time I visited on a Sunday. I was impressed with the menu selection - a variety of roast and non-roast dishes on offer. I had the vegetarian nut roast and was blown away. Light, moist and definitely not boring. It is the best nut roast I have ever had. I can't wait to go back.
First time diner. Immediately on the waiting list for Christmas Lunch. Was that good.
Disappointed with the food. Have eaten here before and was very good. Your home fries were inedible.
Really impressed. We both had the roast beef and it was one of the best roast dinners I've experienced.
Booked a table at 8.15pm and despite the pub being practically empty we were due to sit next to hot fire(it was a warm evening). Asked to move which was inconvenient for them but still agreed( why make a drama about it??) Ordered the burratta and fig as a start at £10 which was a piece of burratta no bigger than 3cm with half a fig sliced in two! Won’t be having that again! Brother and I ordered the steak with all the trimmings medium rare. Came out very well done!! By this time the pub was more or less empty so no real excuse from the kitchen. Took a while to speak to the waitress about this (in the mean time steak keeps cooking). She offered to cook a new one but as my wife’s meal had already arrived 5mins ago and she had started we decided the time it would take it would mess up the evening evening even more. Said they’d do something on the bill. Not necessarily what I wanted but by this stage my evening was already ruined. When bill arrived deducted one of the 2 steaks off the bill. Would I go again? Not for a meal! Atmosphere = zero I used to adore The Bell and it used to be in my opinion best pub in Cotswolds 7-8years ago. We used to be in there at least once a week and book private room for small group events. Will I go again? Sadly very unlikely. Why am I bothering to comment? Because we used to enjoy it so much I hope my comments will be taken on board and things will change. If not so be it and somebody else will get my easy business.
We enjoyed our lunch very much and look forward to many more visits.
Lovely food, good service, beautiful setting. Very accommodating to us and our party which including two one year olds in high chairs. Many thanks, we will be back again soon!
Lovely pub with great atmosphere and food. Dog friendly too.
Thanks to all the staff for making our afternoon a success. Food & service were excellent. Thanks again
First time to the Bell, food very tasty and service great.
Lovely atmosphere and decor, friendly attentive staff, and good selection of drinks. Food was good but not excellent given the price - battered fish was bendy rather than crispy. But, would definitely come again!
As usual a very warm welcome, our meal was only warm, not hot, the meat was rather disappointing, much better on a previous visit, so overall poor value this visit, it has always been in our opinion the best pub we visit, sadly this time it falls below that rating.
First visit but not the last.
Staff very helpful, we hired the private dining room and they allowed us to put up balloons etc...really made the day. Service was efficient and friendly. Always a favourite.
It was such a nice day ,the atmosphere was good and the food was excellent. Thanks.
Our first visit, but hopefully not the last!
I already provided feedback on a card left at the restaurant after our meal. I have had dinner at the Bell on three occasions and each time it was excellent. However, our Sunday lunch experience was very poor. The main course roasts were cold, the vegetables disappointing and the meat also. I do not like apple sauce that has come out of a jar. One of our three desserts (the sticky date pudding) was fine, but the cremes burlee were inedible and we sent them back. In fairness, the Bell made an adjustment to the bill - but I won't be going back for Sunday lunch.
Superb food and service. We were visiting the area and had a most enjoyable evening. Thank you
Delicious food, cosy and snug with fires lit in beautiful rooms, excellent friendly staff, wonderful old pub in picturesque village. Very welcoming atmosphere.... puppy was the icing on the cake.
We enjoyed an excellent lunch and much appreciated the welcoming yet efficient attitude of hosts and staff. Thank you
I asked to be seated away form the door and was placed in a good spot. The service and food were excellent.
Nice food, friendly staff good drinks. Slightly expensive in my humble and salads full of strange looking objects. Keep it simple with quality vegetables is my opinion.
We booked the private dining room for a birthday party. The staff were very helpful and happy for me to decorate the room. We had a great evening and the food was delicious!
