After a walk at the nearby nature reserve we looked for a dog friendly pub serving food. We had two failed attempts when we found The Bell Inn. Food was great and the service was too. Toilets were nicely decorated and very clean. We sat in the bar area with our dog and it was comfortable and spacious.

Stayed overnight on Wednesday 7th December and, sadly, ended a little disappointed. The staff we dealt with appeared friendly, but our room was cold. We were advised that management would call us but we heard nothing. My wife mentioned this on a review and we received another contact asking for more information, promising we would be contacted. My wife added...

We stayed here for 3 nights to visit family and for sight-seeing. The rooms are in serious need of refurbishment but were clean and bedding and towels were clean and fresh. We were allocated Room 8 as being quiet but had problems with uncomfortable mattresses and items missing from the room. Initially management was very defensive when this was brought...

The hotel was a bit dated in decor, but the staff were very friendly and we had a very pleasant stay. We ate in the restaurant, and also went to the White Hart for a truly lovely meal. Best to book the White Hart as it was very popular, and we were lucky to get a table outside.

My son and I stayed one night prior to a meeting. We had an enjoyable evening in the bar with good food and a choice of real ales in addition to the normal offerings. Our room was spotless and although modest in size, had all we required and was very comfortable. The staff/proprietors were helpful and attentive giving a warm...
