I took my sister to dinner here at short notice and we had a great meal with a nice wine , easy to select from the bottles next to the bar. The service was good and efficient and I will definitely recommend and return.

Glad the 'new' Owners/Managers have kept the very best of the original menu and importantly, for me, my favourite risotto (albeit slightly smaller than in the past ten years of biennial visits to the UK/Cotswolds). The Bell has always had style and the service and...More

There are many Cotswold Pubs where you can get a Sunday Roast and the Bell is one of them. However, if your priority is heaped up portions of average over cooked fare then don't go to the Bell. This pub has an excellent ambiance, with...More

The Bell has just scooped the 'Best Pub' award in the 2017 'Western Daily Press' Food and Farming Awards and we're over the moon! Situated in the heart of the Cotswolds in the beautiful village of Sapperton, we are a busy yet beautiful old pub. Frequented all year round by walkers, riders, bikers and discerning diners and locals alike. We pride ourselves on consistently being one of the very best pubs in the Cotswolds (and the country, according to our lovely regulars!) for food, drink and relaxed but professional hospitality. The Bell was one of the first real 'gastro' pubs in the early 2000's. We continue to serve up the very best of fresh, regional and seasonal produce, specialising in British dishes, regional beers, cocktails and wines personally and painstakingly selected by ourselves on our many wine trips around the globe. Although we're famous for our top notch food, we're not just a rural restaurant. We welcome well behaved dogs, horses and children for either a casual pop in visit or a pre-booked meal.
