Fantastic venue for my mother’s birthday lunch. 7 adults and 5 kids in the private room was perfect and all the staff incredibly friendly, helpful and catered for our every need with no hassle at all. Kids ranged from from 18 months to 8 years old and they were also very well looked after! The starters were very good but the only downside was that we did find the Sunday roast a little over cooked, which made some of it a bit dry, even with the extra gravy. Overall, we had a lovely time though, so thanks to everyone.
consistant high standard. Great choice of wines 🥂
The setting is amazing, however the experience was far less satisfactory. We had a reservation for 4 @ 16:00 on Sunday. We ordered 4 Sunday lunches only to be told that you had run out of Yorkshire Puddings, which I guess can happen but shows a lack of planning. We were asked if we’d like extra vegetables as compensation so we asked for extra roast potatoes. 5 minutes later we were told you were also out of roast potatoes. We asked for extra vegetables, including carrots which we never received, although we did get extra broccoli and red cabbage. I mentioned the lack of roast potatoes and Yorkshire puddings to the manager who didn’t seem that bothered and said we would be getting roast new potatoes. However, when these arrived they were more like boiled potatoes. Despite only having half a Sunday lunch we were giving no reduction on our meal or apology for our experience all of which made it a disappointing experience.
Great service, lovely food and a good drinks selection.
Coffee machine was broken but staff were very helpful and polite. Food was delicious.
The devilled kidneys were extremely spicy and my wife found them inedible. It was appreciated that she was given a free pudding in lieu.
Food, service and atmosphere was fantastic! So glad we chose to dine with you whilst visiting the Cotswolds - if ever we were in the area again, we would definelty book a table.
We ordered 3 fish pies with seasonal greens. My pie contained a large number of bones which put me off finishing it. The taste of the pies was over powered by fennel.
One of our party had not been here before and was really impressed with the overall ambiance and atmosphere of the restaurant. All of which made for a fabulous evening with good company and food.
We always bring friends and family here because The Bell provides a warm and welcoming atmosphere with great food. Every person who works here is an amazing asset to the restaurant. No one person has ever been impolite or anything less than superb. The food itself is quick, but beautifully prepared with fresh ingredients. The menu changes enough to keep it interesting but not too much, which means there is always something for everyone. Cocktails are also consistently delicious and creative.
All credit to Peter and Chris, we had a special menu in the private dining room for 14 people and enjoyed a sumptuous lunch with great service.
Very enjoyable meal, would recommend the fish pie. Service was good and there was a nice atmosphere. Will definitely return.
Good service has n a very busy Saturday
Service wasn’t as quick as usual however the staff member was extremely polite and well dressed
Such a great, cozy place. Thanks for making our first dinner our first time in the Cotswolds so great!
Lovely food great pub
This was our best visit to the Bell for quite a few years. The food is always very nice, but often the service can be average due to the waiters/waitresses.....this time was really different Greeted with a smile and showed to our table by a wonderful young man who also served us with drinks. In addition the young lady who served us and gave us our bill was quite outstanding...we told her as well as we were leaving. A real step change...thank you...well done we will be back soon.
A wonderful meal in every respect. Superlative.
My favourite restaurant ever!
I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to your team at The Bell for Sunday, and in particular also wanted to highlight how brilliant Chris who looked after us was. We celebrated a special family birthday in your function room. We really appreciate how fabulous you made the room look and how fantastic the food was. Chris who looked after us was exceptional and couldn’t do enough to help. My mother-in-law really enjoyed it and felt thoroughly spoilt! I was really blown away by how special it all was for her and can’t thank you enough. Thank you 😊
Service was excellent and the food was absolutely delicious. Great atmosphere and would highly recommend others to visit.
We had a delicious lunch with you last Friday, super atmosphere and kind and solicitous service. Really easy booking online also. Thank you!
Excellent as always
Absolutely delighted that you offer gluten free batter! A quiet lunchtime treat, and the whole experience was superb for all of us. Service, food and wine were excellent quality.
