Old Bell Hotel Posted 4-Dec-2011 on Hotels
Lovely, typical English hotel, surroundings.......but the menu leaves a lot to be desired. Bar menu isn't the most exciting if you want to eat off it in the evening. Main menu is so far removed from normality it was so off the wall. Snail & nettle leaves??? The only one dish that I thought I would eat was sold out.....a bit silly for a restaurant / hotel of this nature. Eating half a sausage roll at £6 is a little bit OTT. Granted breakfast was very good, comfort of hotel is very good. Not saying I wouldn't stay there again....but most definately won't eat in the hotel. Saying all that....my girlfriend would love to stay there, it has always been an hotel she has wanted to stay in.....so it obviously does suit the more upperclass pallet.
