Our View

Originally one of four village pubs, only the attractive, white-painted Bell Inn has stood the test of time. Run with flair by husband and wife team Huw and Ruth Griffiths, it lies way back from the road, with a tree-shaded garden and tables to one side. Expert design skills are evident inside. Real ales change frequently, usually to include a local brew. Two fixed-price menus, one two-course, the other three, are available lunchtimes Wednesday to Friday, and Wednesday and Thursday evenings before 7pm. Or there's the main carte, which starts with pan-fried scallops; or beetroot-cured gravid lax, and moves on to pan-roasted partridge with pepper and Madeira cream; roast fillet of sea bass with crab mash; and Stilton, leek and broccoli tart. Grilled steak and burgers also feature.

About the area

Discover Warwickshire

The sparkle of sunlight on a gentle river as it meanders through beautiful countryside; the reflections of sailing boats on a lake; relaxing with a pint in the garden of an old English pub in a picturesque village; brightly coloured narrow boats making their way through a flight of lock gates; the imposing silhouette of an historic castle. These are the scenes that make Warwickshire a delight. 

There may be few seriously high hills in this fertile plain, but it is an area full of attractive walking in rolling countryside, blessed with a fascinating history and wonderful places and buildings to visit. This is Shakespeare’s county, and the footprint of the famous Bard appears almost everywhere. He was born and brought up around the beautiful Warwickshire town of Stratford-upon-Avon, and many of his plays draw upon his own experiences in the area.

Warwickshire has a history that embraces the Civil War, castles and large country houses are scattered over the county. Warwick Castle is the home of the Earl of Warwick, Kenilworth Castle was a stronghold for lords and kings of England in the 11th and 12th centuries, and so the list goes on.
