These premises boast vintage charm with a history that goes as far back as 1135. Its Sanctus Bell is a longstanding hallmark that still stands today, inviting guests into the inn. At the same time, it features modern fixtures that help to elevate events. Here, to-be-weds can host their ceremony and reception as their loved ones enjoy the relaxing surroundings of an old-world aesthetic with up-to-date amenities.
Facilities and Capacity
Ceremonies may be held in the Tithe Barn or in the Malt House. Each of these event spaces has its own remarkable appeal, worthy of hosting I-do occasions. The barn offers a bucolic beauty and pared-back elegance, defined by exposed beams and wooden features. Here, chairs may be arranged in rows so guests can sit comfortably as the couple of honour exchange vows at the head of the room. The Malt House is equally impressive with its grandeur, period-style design, and modern furnishings. Each building also provides a romantic and private area, perfect for small toasts or intimate gatherings. The barn can be set up with tables and chairs so that everyone can savour a seated meal. Likewise, the Malt House has several areas that welcome dozens of invitees to take their seats as culinary delights are served. The same buildings may be used for the wedding breakfast and late-night festivities. Outside, the gorgeous Malt House Gardens provide an idyllic backdrop for those all-important photo sessions. Overall, the maximum capacity of The Olde Bell is approximately 120 people.
A variety of packages are available for soon-to-be-newlyweds to peruse. These include the Classic, Quintessential, Timeless, and Exclusive bundles. These feature various options, like overnight accommodations, and food and beverage services. Some of the courses offered by the on-site catering team include pan-fried stone bass, thyme-roasted chicken breast, and steamed lemon sole. A diverse selection of wines can also be served as complements to The Old Belle’s delicious fare.

Amazing Wedding Day
Myself and James just wanted to say a massive thank you to Gabriela and the team. Our wedding day was very well organised and ran very smoothly, from the ceremony to the wedding breakfast. It was perfect and just as we hoped it would be.Sent on 21/01/2020
We were very impressed with Julian and the whole waiting team, they did a phenomenal job on the day and ensured all tables were catered and that the drinks and canapes flowed. Julian thought of every detail and my Dad let me know that Julian and his team even beautifully presented and laid out the cheese and crackers that we had personally provided. We were also grateful that Julian gave me and James a glass of champagne at midnight, as we had not been able to get one with everyone coming over to talk to us! It was small details like that, that meant so much.
Please pass our compliments onto the to the chef and his team. We received so many comments from our guests about how lovely the food was and everyone was impressed with just how much food there was! Several of our guests said it was by far the best food they have ever had at a wedding which meant so much to us and in itself is a huge compliment to your chef and his team.
A big thank you as well, to you Gabriela. We are very grateful for all your help and support with the organisation of our wedding. You were always there at the end of a phone or computer to answer all our questions.
We had the most amazing Wedding Day at the Olde Bell and for that it will always hold a special place in our hearts.
