COVID-19 – Update

Dear Guests of the Old Bell Hotel,

I really hope everyone has managed to stay safe and well during this extremely testing period.

Life has changed for us all over the past few months and we, like you, have been doing our best to navigate the new ‘norm’.

We closed our doors in line with the Government directive back in March along with the rest of hospitality to keep our staff and guests safe, but we have now fully re-opened our Hotel while keeping the restaurant closed on Monday, Tuesday and Sunday evening.

We really cannot wait to welcome you all back and whilst observing stringent safety measures, aim to create the same warm welcome that we have always strived to deliver.

On behalf of our team, I would like to thank you for the countless messages of support and the patience that you have shown us during this challenging time.

Our Refectory restaurant opening hours will be Monday/Tuesday from 12pm till 2pm and Sundays from 12pm till 3pm and Wednesdays to Saturdays from 12pm till 2pm / 6.30pm till 9pm.

Our Reception desk will be opened from 7am till 3pm Sunday to Thursday from 7am till 3pm and Fridays and Saturdays until 7pm. We will be operating our Hotel and answering all enquiries over the phone on 01666 822 344 or by email at We promise to answer all enquiries within 24 hrs.

Night porter service offered 7 days/week

Wedding viewings are bookable directly by email at

Until we can re-open our beautiful Hotel to its maximum strength, I wish you and your family all the very best.
