A 17th Century pub in a picturesque Cotswold market town in the heart of the community

Our talented chefs have created a modern British menu serving seasonal dishes that celebrate produce from Daylesford Organic, our sister farm.​ The bedrooms have been restored with considered attention to detail, drawing on the skills of local artisans and artists. From crackling log fires to a huge orchard garden for families to drink in the sunshine, The Bell provides an escape from the bustle of everyday life.​

FOOD

A seasonal menu celebrating local growers and producers

The menu combines a selection of hearty pub classics with ingredient-led dishes that celebrate the flavours of seasonal produce. Ingredients come from local suppliers and growers as well as from our sister farm at Daylesford Organic.

DRINK

Modern craft beers from independent British breweries alongside traditional cask ales

We serve familiar artisan beer, draught cider and hand-picked wine from independent vineyards. Large inglenook fires provide a welcoming place for families to play board games and dogs to curl beside, whilst our Snug is a quiet corner tucked away behind the bar.

Stay

Pub Rooms

Each of our twelve pub rooms are different, drawing inspiration from the neighbouring ancient woodland. The interiors preserve the heritage of the pub, blending seamlessly with all the modern comforts one would expect from the exceptional standards of a Daylesford Stays property.

For the design of our bedrooms we looked to talented local artisans and craftspeople, whose work of the hand can be seen in many of the details throughout our pub. 

The antique bed in the Oak bedroom features a beautiful embroidered pelmet covered with nature-inspired motifs, which we think might date back as early as the seventeenth century. 

Due to its age, the fabric required some restoration so our team enlisted the help of the incredibly talented Sarah King, who specialises in crewelwork embroidery. Sarah carefully refreshed and replicated all the little squirrels, dogs, flowers and birds - each using a unique blend of English-dyed wool matched to the original colours of the antique version.
