It's Gold for The Bell!

Following an inspectors visit we are delighted to announce that we have retained a 4 Star Inn rating with Gold Award for guest accommodation and an AA Rosette for culinary excellence.

The inspector commented..The property had benefited from a large extension and refurbishment of restaurant area. Works completed were impressive with an obvious focus on quality and guest comfort and included new furniture and very good quality table appointment. The elevated terrace was an unexpected bonus and would no doubt be a great asset to the large patio area in sunny weather. The individually styled bedrooms and bathrooms remained in very good order with a host of thoughtful extras provided to boost impressions of quality and guest comfort levels. Housekeeping standards remained a strength.

Chris, Anne and their latest recruit, son Will, hand roast in small batches to literally provide excellence in a cup.
