    Overall really enjoyed our meals. Service level had been good but ten spoilt only by having to wait an unacceptably long time our dessert to arrive - it was ordered at an acceptable time after main course but then waited quite some time for it to be brought to table. And then having to wait a long time to settle our bill. Would still return as food quality was excellent.

    The food at this venue is excellent. The service is polite & at a relaxed tempo which makes the dinning experience enjoyable. The price is slightly higher than I would have expected which I can understand as I can see they are trying to appeal to high level or clientele however I think there’s a little further to go to reach that next level. However I would recommend the Bell & Cross to others as the experience was overall pleasant.

    Lunch of beetroot salad followed by filet steak. Have to say that the steak was the best I have had in a long time absolutely delicious. My wife had the monkfish in a Thai sauce and rice she said it was perfect. Service was excellent, it has become one of our favourites.

    Another excellent lunch, good choices on the menu beetroot salad was once again outstanding and the chunky beef chilli was perfect if you like it hot and spicy, my wife had the fish and chips which was large and the batter perfect and light. Service was exceptional and the whole experience means that we will be back very soon, a perfect place to dine.

    Sunday lunch was superb! Really loved the veggie roast, loved that it came with a soufflé & not another average beetroot wellington or nut roast thanks for jazzing it up for me! Much appreciated! Veg was delicious too, will definitely be making an appearance again! Service was really good too! very attentive & very friendly
