The Bell Bar and Carvery
The Bell Hotel is composed of The Bell Bar, our famous Carvery Restaurant, a TV lounge, Coffee Lounge, two snugs and ample free parking for all guests. Free internet access is available in all public areas.

A bit of history…

A visit today by more conventional means reveals a variety of pleasures in keeping with more sophisticated requirements, not least of which are attractive beamed bars where it is a delight to relax with a drink and consider the excellent bill of fare.

Until 1914, The Bell brewed its own beer on the premises, refusing to be tied to any commercial brewery. Today it retains its independence by remaining a free house and selling the beer it chooses.

An early sign of The Bell Hotel found and restored in 1976, hangs in the coffee lounge. It is alleged that The Bell Hotel was once the venue for the Magistrates Court with Petty Sessions being held on alternative Wednesdays. Stage Coaches to and from London would call every day except Sunday – “The Regulators” via Tring and “The Union” via Wendover starting and finishing at the Bell Hotel.

The Carvery

Food is our passion, and our famous carvery is ready to serve you 6 days a week. Not just Sundays like other local restaurant. You can start with one of our fantastic starters, or head straight to the main and choose from a selection of local meats, the best Yorkshire puddings, fresh vegetables and home made bread rolls. If you have space afterwards, finish off with one of our delicious desserts. As well as the carvery, bar meals are available daily.

Our awarding Pie’s

Under the stewardship of Paul Capener MCCG our Pie Shop is a must visit when you are in the area. As an MCGB master chef craft guild master chef Great Britain, Paul has been cooking professionally for over 40 years and has enjoyed working in some of the most prestigious venues in the UK.  Paul has been a keen competitor throughout his career and has been lucky enough to be part of the Bell Hotel competition team for the last two years. The Bell Pie Shop picked up 8 awards in the British Pie Awards in 2016, and 11 in 2017 including 2 Golds each year. 

The Bell Pie Shop currently holds two GOLD medals for Best Steak Pie in England from the AHDB, an organisation very close to our hearts as we champion local produce.  The Bell Pie Shop is open daily behind reception where all of our fresh pies are available to take away as well as being served in our restaurant.

“We have used the Bell Hotel as our base for the Model T Ford Register April Fools Rally  for the past 25 years. They have always been accommodating and friendly even when we block up their carpark with over 50 Model T Fords.

The Carvery in the evening has become a stalwart of the rally and is always welcome after a day’s driving 100 year old Fords exposed to the elements.”

Tuckett Brothers, Model T Ford Rally


“We have booked our stay again for the 5th year running. Small hotel with lots character and very friendly staff. Great food and welcoming bar area. Excellent location for Addington Equestrian Centre.

Philip and Tara could not be more helpful ensuring our stay is comfortable and fun for our rather large, sometimes a little noisy international mix of guests.”

UK International Arabian Horse Show


“We have stayed at The Bell Hotel with groups of German business students for many times. We enjoy the genuine atmosphere, the good food and the friendly staff. It is a great place to show the students Great Britain at its best.”

Werner Brochause
Teacher, Berufskolleg Wipperfuerth

“Thanks to the staff at the Bell Hotel we had an amazing wedding, This was arranged as a surprised wedding for our guest who assumed they were coming to us for a BBQ. The Bell kept the secret for eight months.

The room was decorated beautifully in Pink and White flowers, chairs were coved in white with huge pink bows. The music we wanted played at just the right moments. After the service we had a feast of 60”s food as this we thought would appeal to our guests as most were as old as us.

Everything was perfect and The Bell made our brilliant  day!”
