Very pleased with The Bell. From arrival all staff were warm, helpful and friendly. As soon as we had checked in we were offered fresh milk to make a cup of rea in our room. We stayed in a luxury double as that was the only availability and we were totally satisfied with it. The room was immaculate and decorated...

We stayed for just 1 night but I would loved to have stayed for longer! From the very friendly welcome and escort to our room (room 4 Exec room) we couldn't have wished for more. This is a gem of a place. All the staff were very helpful and efficient. Our room was beautiful and had great extra touches that...

We were warmly welcomed on arrival and were shown to the private dining room, a lovely room which had direct access to the bar. The staff were friendly and helpful throughout the evening. All seven of us had an excellent meal and I look forward to coming back again to enjoy the food and atmosphere.

I have eaten here on many family occasions but Saturday's meal was so far removed from the standards previously experienced! Firstly there were 11 of us eating for a special occasion and after half an hour we had to find someone and ask them to take a drinks order. The food finally came out - the starters were on the...

Hands up! We had a few different issues over the weekend and we are so sorry and embarrassed by your critique. Frankly, complaints are rare so we are keen to put it right. Call Vicky who is our head of Administration. She works Monday to Friday during the day and will endeavor to put this right. George

This has been a favourite of ours....... for some time for good service and excellent food, but tonight things have changed! If I had written on here previously about this establishment, there would be 5 stars, but a "new team" has brought the ratings DOWN! And to add that tonight was a birthday treat. To start, we were left waiting...

As you have been a restaurant manager in a past life, I am sure I do not need to tell you that occasionally things go wrong in our business! Some of our more experienced team are on holiday including our general manager. The young girl you refer to, was duty manager for the first time. Coping with over 100 diners,...

Just far enough away from Oxford so you do not have issues with traffic jams the Bell is in a lovely village. The rooms are well furnished and comfortable. The restaurant at the pub is superb. I tried the hake which I would go back for and the cheese soufflé everything was a delight. The menu does change with the...

Had a very enjoyable stay with friends here. We arrived mid-afternoon and the place was quite busy even at this time, which was a good sign. Whether sitting out on the pleasant terrace with an afternoon drink, eating the excellent food in the bustling restaurant or sleeping in the well appointed rooms everything was spot on. The staff were friendly...

we live outside the area, but took a friend who is local for lunch recently as she had been previously. What a lovely surprise. A superb setting in a small village, this place is a treasure.
