We are proud to announce that we have been award Warwickshire Dining Pub of the Year Winner for 2021 by The Good Pub Guide
The Bell Inn has been providing refreshment for over 300 years. According to local history, William Shakespeare was on his way back to Stratford upon Avon in the rain after meeting Drayton and Ben Jonson for a drink at The Bell in Welford, when he contracted fatal pneumonia! Luckily the roads are somewhat better these days, and we can always arrange a taxi for you to get home.

Who are we?
We’ve thought long and hard about what category we fall into. The modern term seems to be ‘Gastro Pub’, which is the English equivalent to the French Bistro, where you can have a drink, a light bite, or a gourmet meal, whatever takes your fancy. Although that’s our philosophy, it’s a bit of a trendy term, and we’re not about following trends!
We describe ourselves as a Dining Pub. This means that The Bell is a pub at heart, with a friendly atmosphere, but providing food and service to a standard you’d expect from a first class restaurant.
