The Bell is a traditional style village pub with a twist. We offer a variety of services such as Sunday Carvery from 12:00 PM - 5:00 PM !!! Evening A La Carte menu which is served from 6:00 PM - 9:30 PM from Tuesday to Saturday. Lunch is also served in between the hours of 12:00 PM - 3:00 PM with selection of cold and hot Buffet , Bar Menu and Special Black Board
No complaints, we had a good lunch served by friendly people. Nice choice of beers on tap too. Good, attractive decor makes this a modern country pub albeit in an old building.
There seems to be a good choice on the menu although we were there at a lunchtime so probably even more in the evening! We didn’t have the buffet but it looked superb.
This is one we will try again.

We visited Franks after hearing lots of people singing its praises and weren't disappointed.
This place lets the food and service do the talking. Look beyond the decor and you will find delicious food, cooked to perfection with fresh ingredients all topped off with good service.
We visited with two adults and two children (6 and 11). For starter we shared the antipasto, which was sufficient for four and followed with three pizzas and a carbonara.
The pizzas were lovely with crisp bases (far better than the usual soggy based high offerings). My daughter had the English pizza which tastes amazing with the Cheddar cheese!
Overall a great experience!

Having just arrived back from the USA we didn't feel like going shopping or cooking. So a quick call to the restaurant and space was available. As always a great welcome with an ideal table for two. The food was just like we always have, exceptional and the new choices of wine complemented the food beautifully. Cn always rely on the restaurant to come up trumps.

Another fantastic meal at Palmichael. We were a group of 12 and the restaurant was very busy - for mid-week in January, it's obvious that Palmichael are doing something right. The service as always was friendly and professional and the food absolutely first rate. We often go for the “Leggero” menu which offers amazing value and always has something that appeals. However this time we went a la carte and everyone was impressed by the taste of their chosen dish. I went for the Fettuccine di Mare – Fettuccine, tiger prawns, calamari & langoustines with garlic, chilli & cream sauce - absolutely delicious. Can't wait for an excuse to go again!

The Three Cranes has ceased trading as of March 19th. thank you for all your support throughout our time here. we apologise for any inconvenience this may cause!
This is a restaurant we attend regularly and felt confident enough to suggest it as a location for Xmas Dinner for 18 of us. They didn’t let us down. Wonderful lunch. Never rushed despite us being the last to leave and then a wedding proposal too! (She said yes!)
Excellent food, staff and owners. Definitely worth travelling to.

The Blitz Tea Room and Jazz Lounge takes you back to during the Blitz in the 1940's.
Called in on a freezy grey afternoon, very warmly welcomed and enjoyed a freshly prepared bespoke Sandwich, good quality leaf tea and naughty but uncredibly nice fresh cream homebaked gâteau.
Wonderfully kind and attentive service from the new owners, really hope it is a continued success.

Well behaved dogs are welcome in our Public Bar and you will find doggy stations by the front door to clean up after muddy walks. Pub opening times are below, please see website for restaurant times
I had a three day stay here during the snow of the best from the east. My main reason for choosing it was the Good Food Guide recommendation and I was not disappointed. Although fairly simple, every course I had was excellent. The service team are very good indeed - far better than one often finds in pubs.
The room was good - quite simple but with everything one would need, including a large TV, modern bathroom etc.
I will most certainly return.
