Pubs and Bars with Restaurants
Shipston Road, Alderminster, CV37 8NY
An exquisite country pub, restaurant and boutique bed and breakfast, The Bell is a delightful little ﬁnd in the pretty village of Alderminster. Original beams, exposed brick, stone ﬂoors and open ﬁres complement the rustic, mismatched tables and chairs to create a charming and relaxed atmosphere, perfect for any occasion. The menu in this AA-rosetted restaurant is impressive and changes seasonally to incorporate the abundant fresh, local produce. Imaginative dishes are cooked fresh to order by the experienced chefs using ingredients of the highest quality from trusted local suppliers. Excellent-value daily specials are offered alongside à la carte options, and the bar menu offers everything from popular sharing boards to tasty pub classics; the 8oz chargrilled cheeseburger with smoked bacon and Cotswold relish is always a winner. Throw into the mix a bottle of wine from the carefully compiled list, or local ale, along with the option to stay the night, and you’ll agree The Bell is worth seeking out. All nine of the individually styled guestrooms come with little luxuries such as L’Occitane toiletries, fresh milk and fresh coffee from local roastery Monsoon Estates. The suite beneﬁts from a private decked area and has a stable door that opens out onto views across the wonderful Stour Valley. The large garden and adjoining riverside meadow allow for informal dining inside and out.
