We decided to eat here as we were staying in the local area and having looked for somewhere suitable online, The Bell Inn seemed to have good reviews so we tried to book for Sunday lunch. Unsurprisingly, it was booked up so we went for an early dinner.

Being as it was Easter Sunday, they had a special Easter menu with plenty to choose from. Many mains to choose from and a selection of four different roasts, all around £15.

For us, at the more expensive end of a pub Sunday Roast but when it's as good as this, no complaints from us! We both had the rib of beef which came juicy and pink; we did order more veg and roast potatoes so not sure what the usual portion size is like but we had plenty!

All desserts were home made and priced around £7; our bill for two (three if you include our 2 year old who we shared our extras with) which included main, desserts and a couple of glasses of wine was around £65 which we thought was okay. We would happily return and pay that again for something so tasty and welcome on a Sunday!

Staff were welcoming and friendly but our only piece of feedback would be to have one person looking after us; the service was absolutely fine but received from around 4 different people.

Would we go back - for sure!!
Would we recommend - yep, no hesitation

Overall, a very good dining experience and an excellent Sunday roast as good as we've had anywhere else. Highly recommended if that's what your looking for.

Well done The Bell Inn and team!!

Called in for lunch Friday with friends on our journey north
Good beer, and excellent hot sandwiches and baguettes enjoyed by us all
In very pleasant surroundings
A short lunch stopover for us. But all the food being served looked delicious and the service was very good

We were lucky enough to book in for mothers day 2018 and were so impressed my daughter insisted we write a review. We arrived and were promptly shown to our table. I normally get the drinks at the bar first, as the initial service can be a little slow, I think some places like you to settle first, but not on this occasion I am pleased to confirm the wait from ordering drinks at our table to getting them was short....well impressed.
We duly ordered 2 x roast pork (both with Yorkshires no problem) 1 x roast beef and a breaded chicken & Garlic sauce dish. All were served promptly and by very pleasant staff. For the roasts, meat and roasties were served on the plate with the veg coming in separate bowls for us to help ourselves. All food was piping hot and delicious. The icing on the cake came from the owner as my daughter wanted a selection of ice creams but the ones she had has before where not on the menu. She mentioned this and within 5 minuets he checked the freezer, (and got wet doing so it was very rainy that day), but came back with a different selection from the menu and she went with that one. This was just one element of the "good service" we received at the Bell Welford on Avon and I feel he went above and beyond what he had to do, to give the customer satisfaction and a very good experience.
Would I recommend it to anyone - YES
Would I return again - YES
Without hesitation as we had a very good experience with friendly attentive staff, delicious food and service above and beyond which I feel is well worthy of this 5* review.
many thanks to all at the Bell, Welford on Avon "we'l be back"

Had been advised to book by the B&B were were staying at, and was fairly busy when we arrived. Shown to our table by a friendly waitress who explain what was and was not available from menu. Drink order was taken but was very slow arriving, I order a pint of speckled hen, which when it arrived did not look right and definitely did not taste like speckled hen, so I returned it to the bar. Bar staff said it was the correct beer but on trying to pull a replacement said he would have to change the barrel. When the replacement eventually came it was better but still not up to the flavour or taste I am us to with speckled hen beer.
We both chose French onion soup for starters and this was very good, my main was fish and chips with minted mashed peas, which was okay, the chips were the skinny sort, much prefer proper large chips. My wife had a veggie curry which was more tomatoey than spicy, acceptable but had better.
