The Bell is full of history and character, the staff were very friendly and helpful. Room was a nice big size and the bed was comfortable with lovely white bedding. Getting to the room from Reception was up quite a few very wide steep stairs with a Fire door at the top of the steps which was quite hard to...

My sister and I called into the Bell today for lunch and were tempted by the 'Special' of ham hock to share. We chose a table away from main bar, number 2. This area is obviously not used often - the bar was thick with dust, crumbs on the table, and uncleared glasses and coffee cups - at the first...

I had a meal here this week wich consisted of the traditional Banger and Mash. It turned nice and hot but swamped with peas. Far too many for an even balance. The Mashed Potato was lumpy and not creamy at all. Sausages were very good and had a great taste. Only average I am afraid

Interesting hotel in a central location although really quiet too. The hotel has a fascinating history and is well narrated in the info booklet in the room. Staff welcoming, friendly and helpful. Great breakfast. Quite a lot of stairs so need to be nimble! We were on the third floor and the stairs were quite steep.

We recently visited friends in Faringdon and came here for breakfast on two occasions . The full English was just delicious, cooked perfectly and there was an option for a small and a large, great for when your extra hungry after a night out. The staff were so friendly and welcoming. When we return we will definitely be back. !

Stayed at the Bell as going to party in area. Staff could not have been more helpful. Our room and bathroom were very comfortable and spotlessly clean. Breakfast was freshly cooked with very good quality food. Thank you very much.
