Eight Bells


Originally built in the 14th century to house the stonemasons who constructed nearby St James' church, this lovely inn was rebuilt in the 17th century and was used to store the peel of eight bells that were hung in the church tower. The cobbled entranceway leads into two atmospheric beamed bars with open fireplaces and, in the floor of one, a surviving priest's hole; outside is an enclosed courtyard and terraced garden overlooking the almshouses and church. Enjoy the Hook Norton and Purity real ales and freshly prepared, locally sourced, seasonal dishes, such as spicy meatballs and spaghetti; chicken liver parfait; supreme of chicken wrapped in Parma ham; roasted butternut squash and tomato risotto; and toad-in-the-hole. Home-made puddings tempt with chocolate crème brûlée; apple and cinnamon sponge pudding served with custard; and lemon posset with a red berry coulis and shortbread. Specials, a prix-fixe menu and a children's menu are also available.
