We had good choice of food with variations to fit our personal needs. Nothing was too difficult and service with a smile and friendly chat.

This was the original Bell hotel dining room, now much improved by the addition of the new larger section and bar. A bit uninteresting in the old bit, go for a table by a window in the new area.

Excellent lunch, very good service and charming staff. I opted for the cod and chips, which I could not get through as it was a large serving. I would certainly return. Excellent value for money and well cooked food. Our waitress was friendly and helpful.
