In the ownership of the same family since George III was on the throne, The Bell is in a picturesque New Forest village not far from Lyndhurst, and is more than a simple country inn: it has a pair of golf courses and 28 indvidually styled, ensuite bedrooms. The interior looks the modernised rustic part, with blackboard menus and log fires in winter, and plenty of gracefully presented local produce on offer. Dogs are welcome while diners eat.
