“The Ongar Bell where magic happens”
Reviewed 22 June 2012 for a stay in June 2012

This is our second visit to the Ongar Bell. Our last visit was a birthday party where money was raised for McMillan Nurses. From the moment we arrived we were made feel special and their work and organisation was amazing. The food was absolutely wonderful, not only wonderful quality but copious amounts Yvonne and Keith are two very special people who put their heart and soul into making everything special. We can't wait to go back again soon. If you choose this venue for wedding, party or corporate events you could not choose a better place to stay.

“Amazing venue for a 30th birthday, Yvonne & Keith were perfect hosts too!”
Reviewed 14 June 2012 for a stay in September 2010

We stayed here for the weeked in September 2010 for my girlfriend's 30th birthday party and just had the most amazing time. What group of mates wouldn't want to rent their own pub for a weekend?! Yvonne & Keith made us feel completely welcome from the moment we walked through the door and we felt like family by the time we left! They also provided an amazing spread of food for the party so we didn't have to worry about a thing. Everything was just perfect and I'd highly recommend a stay here for a great high street location, close to all you need for a stay away from home and the friendliest welcome you could ever wish for.
