We cannot thank the staff at The Bell enough for their superb service. From the moment we booked we were so impressed with how Tessa our wedding coordinator made sure our day was exactly what we wanted. The food was sublime and every member of staff went out of their way to ensure we had the perfect day. Special mention to Jess who made sure our day ran like clockwork. Would thoroughly recommend!

The most wonderful wedding venue!! We can’t recommend the Bell enough! It has such a warm, cosy, quirky feel to it and just makes everyone happy! We had a smaller wedding of 52 people so I was concerned about being lost in a venue……the bell was heaven! Our day was full of fun, laughter, singing, dancing, drinks, delicious food and alot of magical moments we can’t put into words. Tessa was amazing and always very responsive on the lead up to the wedding. Jon looked after us on the day and he was truly incredible!! Book the Bell for your wedding and you will not be disappointed!

We have just got married at The Bell and we couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day. All of our guests commented on how much they loved the food and how great the staff were. Tessa was amazing throughout the planning process and Bryce ran our day smoothly. We truly didn’t have to worry about anything on the day. The whole venue is so beautiful and cosy and everyone loved the fire pit at the end of the night. I would do it all again in a heartbeat if I could!

Thank you so much Tessa for all your support along the way, any questions that we had you were always so quick to respond and help us out. I can honestly say it didn’t feel stressful planning a wedding with your support. On the day, the team did an amazing job setting everything up, changing it throughout the day and clearing up at the end. I couldn’t believe how incredible it all looked and everything went so smoothly. All of the team were so friendly and we didn’t have to worry about a thing. The food was incredible, getting lots of compliments from our guests and definitely not a meal that we will forget. The bar staff were amazing with such quick service for everyone, and the coffee tequila was delicious!! Will and I can truly say that we had the most perfect day and wouldn’t have changed anything.

We decided to postpone our original date due to covid restrictions that were in place, as they were preventing my Dad from travelling back to the UK. The Bell were very understanding and accommodating and moved us to August 2022 without hesitation. Tessa has been amazing throughout, answering our many questions, accommodating last minute guest (and their food) changes and responding really quickly to everything. She even carried the train of my dress (it was so heavy!) as I walked up the stairs to our ceremony. Jess who looked after us on the day was fantastic. She kept really calm on such a hectic day and was great at guiding us through to the next thing on the agenda. We have also had a lot of lovely comments on the food; we are big foodies so wanted somewhere people could relax yet still enjoy great quality food and service. We definitely found that place at The Bell and cannot recommend them enough!
