So Special
Venue Service

Cannot thank the staff enough for making our Wedding so special, and for the wonderful time that we had. Special thanks to Kate for being a marvellous Manager, and Gary for the excellent 80' themed disco

My Husband and I married here, we had a fantastic day and all our guests had a great time. The hotel is beautifully decorated and the staff are very polite and helpful. We go back regularly for food in the bar and every year for a more personal candlelit dinner on Christmas Eve. The food is amazing. You can't visit and not fall in love with Ye Olde Bell. We have also taken our baby boy where he got to meet Santa and the staff were amazing with him. It was a relief that our favourite place were baby and children friendly. I love this place!

Fantastic place! Got married here last July, can't thank the staff enough for how well they catered to all our needs, and the whole day was perfect! Got married outside in the gardens on one of the hottest days of the year.

We got married here in August and it was excellent. There wasn't a thing we could fault or would've changed other than the day to not come to an end. We've had nothing but positivity from guests saying what a fantastic day/venue (and the photographer) one quote "it was the best wedding I've ever been to". Thank you Ye Olde Bell.
