The Bell Hotel
Pubs and Bars with Restaurants
The idyllic town of Faringdon in Oxfordshire is home to many unique locations. From the views of Folly Tower to the quaint charms of Market Place, there’s plenty to see and do in this fascinating corner of the countryside. The Bell Hotel provides the perfect base for your stay here, whether you’re looking for somewhere to recuperate after a countryside walk, or a relaxing room from which to meander around Faringdon and the surrounding villages. Nine newly renovated bedrooms come fi tted out with televisions, complimentary Wi-Fi, and hot drinks, while downstairs you’ll fi nd a bar and restaurant with roaring log fi res and traditional British meals.
It’s in this bar and restaurant that breakfast is served, if you’re lucky enough to be staying here – though it’s not only open to guests. Since taking over two and a half years ago, Mark and his team have ensured that only the fi nest seasonal produce goes on sale here – be sure to check the specials blackboard to take full advantage. The main menu is constantly changing and evolving, featuring such tantalising homemade meals as confi t of duck, or hand-battered fi sh ‘n’ chips made with Wadworth 6X Ale.
It’s the consistency of the quality of The Bell’s food that keeps patrons returning, whether it’s for a fi ne breakfast or the popular Sunday carvery. With this, the friendly service, and the character of the building, we’ll certainly be staying another night.
