Perfect venue for our special day!

Alex and the entire team at The Old Bell Hotel were so incredibly supportive throughout the process of planning our intimate wedding reception. The wide range of food on offer (which was all exquisite) and the options for different locations within the hotel to cater for different sized celebrations were great and what helped us to decide that The Old Bell was the place for us.

Everything we could of dreamed of and more!

We celebrated our special day at the charming Old Bell Hotel and it was more than we could of ever hoped for. A special mention must go to both Emily and Alex the events co-ordinators that ensured we had nothing to worry about as they had everything well thought of and under control. From the attention to detail of the beautifully set venue, exquisite food and the friendly staff who ensured ourselves and our guests felt really welcomed created the wedding of our dreams. We look forward to coming back in the future!
