Went here with my mum - we live nearby but have never eaten here so thought we'd give it a try. The pub is really nice inside and the staff were friendly and helpful. There were a really nice selection of dishes available and I was struggling to choose between 3 or 4 different options. In the end my mum... More

The hotel is easily located and has a large car park set back from the road making parking easy, safe and convenient. The receptionist was helpful and friendly and showed me to my large, clean and well appointed room with an enormous bathroom. The window overlooking the street was open on my arrival and I did not have the need... More

Two oldsters out for a nice lunch and very happy with lunch at The Bell. Good choice of food including some good vegetarian food. I had the fish and chips and the batter was so crisp and fish still moist - congratulations for that. Plus chunky chips which we prefer to skinny chips - definite plus for us. Amiable service...

I've eaten at least 4 times at The Bell over the last year. Each time the food has been very good. The meat - pork, lamb, chicken and bacon are all beautifully cooked, has great flavour and is tender. The portions are generous and the food is well presented. I definitely recommend The Bell for a meal. The staff are... More

There is very little restaurant options in Charlbury and I had already had a meal at the hotel I was staying at and wanted to try somewhere different. The Bell definitely appears to be the better option for food with more variety and appeal on the menu. I ordered the Lamb Steak served on Mash Potato infused with Cranberries -... More
