History

An early sign of The Bell Hotel, found and restored in 1976, hangs in the coffee lounge.  It is alleged that The Bell Hotel was once the venue for the Magistrates Court with Petty Sessions being held on alternate Wednesdays.  Stage Coaches to and from London would call every day except Sunday - “The Regulators” via Tring and “The Union” via Wendover starting and finishing at The Bell Hotel.  Until 1914 The Bell brewed its own beer on the premises, refusing to be tied to any commercial brewery.  Today it retains its independence by remaining a free house, selling the beer it chooses.

In days gone by Stage Coaches used to call regularly at this hostelry which dominates the Market Square of this homely town, and an inn has graced the site since Tudor times.  A visit today by more conventional means reveals a variety of pleasures in keeping with more sophisticated requirements, not least of which are attractive beamed bars where it is a delight to relax with a drink and consider the excellent bill of fare.

Dining

Dine in the comfortable surrounding of the Carvery Restaurant, sampling the traditional roast joints accompanied by a selection of fresh vegetables.  There is also an extensive Bar Menu.

Reviews

What you’ve said

Sorry we didn’t get to see you at breakfast on our last day to say goodbye.

We just wanted to say a big thank you for a fantastic weekend at Silverstone.  We have been a few times ourselves, but this weekend was most definitely the best.  What with the beautiful sunshine and the fantastic seats we had which we can only describe as ‘Pole Position’!

Tina & Kevin
