Enjoyed our meal although I felt we could have had more on the plate for the amount charged but food very good. Not a lot of choice on menu & not keen on specials. Also it was not very warm in restaurant, a shame really.

I understand that the Bell has had a recent takeover and in fairness my ratings were based on that fact. The staff were very attentive and friendly couldn’t do enough for us. However, the menu was rather limited but I’m sure once they get settled in they will become more adventurous with their menu choices.

Very attentive staff. Food was excellent but very limited menu. Also, the food advertised on Facebook was not on the menu. The staff did manage to get it for us though. Only vegan food available was hummus in a sandwich or a jacket potato . Clean and friendly ambiance

The room temperature was rather low although an additional portable heater was brought in which helped a little. Food was well prepared although more menu choices would have been nice. But perhaps that was asking too much on Boxing Day.

We visited for Sunday Lunch, the meal was very good apart from it could have done with a few more roast potatoes, and I don’t feel that celeriac with ginger was a suitable selection for this meal. The temperature in the pub was very cold so had to keep our coats on which was a bit off puttying especially I am sure for those that really feel the cold, although I don’t really feel the cold I did that day as this was particularly cold . Our drinks took longer than expected to arrive due to problem with the tap, we did have an apology for this, however to see other peoples same drink poured 1st when we are half way through our meal was not really acceptable.

The food was very good. It was a shame there weren’t more people in to give a better atmosphere
