Built from local oolitic limestone and Collyweston stone slates, The Bell dates from 1642, although its origins are even older. Characters associated with it include, allegedly, the highwayman Dick Turpin, and, unquestionably, Clark Gable and Joe Louis. A lovely log fire warms the Village Bar, where you can choose from over 30 wines by the glass, and its menu is shared with the elegant yet informal Bistro. In the Galleried Restaurant upstairs start maybe with Stilton pâté and passionfruit coulis, then continue with slow-cooked British beef brisket; duck breast with duck leg croquette; or roast cod, chorizo and chickpea cassoulet. Vegans have their own menu. Accommodation includes three Garden Rooms.
