The Bell is a vibrant, stylish 18th century hotel in the heart of the Oxfordshire Cotswolds. Situated in the centre of Charlbury, an idyllic little town on the edge of the ancient Wychwood forest, we pride ourselves on our warm welcome and excellent food. A world away from the pressures of modern life, were only 12 minutes from Oxford and an 1 hour 10 minutes from London Paddington by train.
Were proud to be at the heart of this bustling rural community and welcome children, dogs and horses at all times of the year. We have a wide range of Cask Marque approved ales alongside lagers, wheat beer and an extensive and imaginative but well priced wine list.
Were passionate about providing the best in local, seasonal produce and only serve fresh food, made entirely on the premises by our dedicated enthusiastic team. Our menus change constantly but there is always a wide range of options from traditional classics through light meals and snacks up to Head Chef Pete Southeys most up-to-the-minute creation. His ability to combine flavours and ingredients to create instant classics is unrivalled in the area. We serve breakfast, lunch and dinner every day and you wont have to worry about beating the clock at the weekends we serve food all day on Saturday and Sunday. You can choose to dine in the intimate, atmospheric restaurant, one of our evocative private dining rooms or join the hubbub in the bar.
All of our rooms have recently undergone extensive renovation and are noted for their charming yet sophisticated feel. Every room has all the facilities you would expect from an AA rated hotel yet also features free wireless broadband and oodles of individual charm and atmosphere. Our rooms are all non-smoking doubles with en-suite facilities and many of them can be booked as twins or family rooms (baby monitors are available), were also recommended in the AA pet friendly guide.
