Once a four-pub village, only the attractive, white-painted Bell has stood the test of time. Run with flair by husband and wife Huw and Ruth Griffiths, it lies way back from the road, with a tree-shaded garden and tables to one side. Real design flair is evident inside. Beers change frequently, sometimes to include the locally brewed What the Fox's Hat. Representing a broad menu, options are pan-seared scallops; various burgers, including bean with grilled haloumi; pie of the day; haunch of venison, braised red cabbage, red wine sauce; and roast fillet of hake with a Puy lentil cassoulet.
