Great food, and excellent wine. So lucky to live nearby. The wine wall is a stroke of genius, and a reason to go alone!

Great food and service and good to see a changing menu, and would welcome even more fish specials if possible.

Impressed that a special meal was created for a vegan/gluten free member of our party. All food was very tasty...if I’m being picky, the quality of the chicken in the pie could have been better and maybe more meat free options on the menu would give more of a balance, but overall very good as usual. Always a good atmosphere and a joy to visit.

Chicken in red wine was very disappointing, lacked taste, small portion of boney chicken. Service is efficient but lacking personality.

Whilst appreciating that the Bell is dog friendly, we did not expect to have two unrestrained animals jumping up on us upon arrival. My steak and kidney pie was good, but the other three members of our party chose the chicken in red wine which, upon arrival, looked more like a cassoulet and not particularly appetising. In addition it had very little flavour. I would add that this is our third visit to your establishment and by far the least satisfying.

The kidneys on toast took my in-laws back to being children again, they absolutely loved it! Service was excellent. Online booking system worked well. Father-in-law thought the steak a little tough but he is a bit fussy and ordered it to be well-done so I think you can safely ignore that! The rest of us had a perfect lunch outing. Thank you all very much indeed.

The pub and atmosphere was good. The food was expensive for what it was particularly the fish. The beer was not well kept. Overall a disappointing visit this time

Kate and I haven't been to the any pub around here for some time; because every time we went; we came back extremely frustrated. Most pubs around here just don't get it right. Bad food; bad service; bad attitude; bad beer; bad atmosphere; bad staff. Often with a total lack of imagination and totally overpriced for what you get.. They try to be more than they are and emphasis on the food while neglecting the other vital components to run a successful welcoming gastro-pub. This is the Cotswolds. The Countryside. The Bell understands this and has the Balance absolutely right. We had a lovely time. The Service was outstanding. Friendly; organized; welcoming, caring and fast. They are really a tide team and know what they are doing. The food was to die for . We had sausages and mash. I always go for the traditional food; the first time I go to a new pub. It tells you a lot about the cook. We were not disappointed. We got simple honest food at the highest Quality in terms of ingredients; taste and presentation. Absolutely delicious and generous. The atmosphere was warm; light and relaxed. The ambient was the right tasteful mixture between tradition and functionality. A very clear layout and not cramped at all. The Bell in Sapperton pulls all the right registers and can only be highly recommended. We will be back at least once a month. The Bell gives real hope for the British pub trade. Well done!!

Excellent - it is almost as if the original owners had returned with some minor tweaks that improved it all. We haven't been for a while but the Bell is firmly back on the 'must do' list at the weekends again.

My friend and I enjoyed a delightful and unhurried dinner at The Bell, which was my first visit. The restaurant has a lovely atmosphere, and the staff made us feel very welcome. Our food was very enjoyable (fish and duck): good ingredients, nicely cooked, and not overly complex, and our wine was excellent. My friend remarked on what an imaginative and tasty duck dish she was served. Deserts were very nice too, and we felt full after two courses. We really appreciated being able to spend a couple of hours over dinner and not feel any sense of being rushed. We shall be going back to The Bell soon.

My Sunday lunch was slightly disappointing as it was only lukewarm and a dish of cauliflower came in an extremely hot metal dish but the veg was still cold.
