We were part of a group staying at this quaint hotel for 3 nights. I cannot praise the owner and staff enough for their hard work and excellent service. Groups are never easy to look after but the staff made every effort to accommodate our requirements. Even though our room in the rear annexe was a little cramped it was clean and comfortable. The food was excellent and all the staff couldn't have been more helpful or worked harder for us. Sadly such excellent service is not experienced very often in hotels these days. Nothing was too much trouble and our stay was a very pleasurable experience.

My small single room was clean and the shower worked well. Breakfast was very good with plenty of cooked options, but natural yoghurt would have been good with the fresh fruit. Plenty of free parking and a nice quiet night, thank you.

M Andrews   

Excellent value for money. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Food was very good. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting the area

Neil Pritchard   

Staff all very helpful and welcoming and catered for quite a large number of guests for dinner very well. Room good standard and enjoyed our stay. Took one of the pies home and thoroughly enjoyed that too.

K Thomson   

Myself and my friend had a wonderful one night stay. The room was spotlessly clean, so cosy outside in the courtyard. We couldn't fault anything. I'd never been to Winslow before, and will certainly revisit and recommend The Bell. We had a great evening.


Stayed 1 night whilst at a family wedding in Woughton. A beautiful old coaching inn, that had a great mix of the values of old and modern hotel comforts, set in a pretty English country village. Our room was large , very clean and very comfortable, and the staff were all very friendly. Even found a man who lived in the cellar strolling about ! All together good value and a lovely experience. Recommend to all

What a lovely place to stay. As other guests have said, this is an old establishment and is quite quirky-lots of up and down steps etc. However, what a place to stay. The rooms are large and comfortable and very, very clean. The staff are so kind and genuinely helpful. It definitely is a family friendly hotel even tho it is part of a pub (which has that lovely "Village Pub" feel). We took our 11 yr old with us and he thought the place was "awesome". This was our first visit to Winslow for a wedding at nearby Horwood House. It was very convenient to the venue, tons cheaper and I reckon a much nicer place to stay. We will definitely be back soon. Thank You The Bell Hotel xXx

Yet again we had an excellent weekend at The Bell, with the Model T Ford club. The staff are friendly and efficient, the locally-sourced food is delicious & good value and the building - an old coaching inn - is a delight for traditionalists. The rooms are comfortable but expect road noise if you're at the front of the hotel. We've booked our room again for next year's event.

Nick Cliffe   

Myself and three friends had Sunday lunch on 29th April and we all said what an excellent meal and service we received even though it looked extremely busy. Well done to all the staff, we will be back.

Mary Harrison   

Very accommodating
And good food

Alan Spackman   

We had 2 nights there. The room was comfortable and breakfast was good. The only minor drawback was the noise from the area outside one night from some of the patrons. We would definitely use the hotel again.

Michael Commins   

We only stayed one night but could easily have stayed more, very comfortable, lovely room with beautiful views. Staff very friendly and helpful and the location of the Bell is ideal for visiting many different places.

Andrew Fraser   

Very warm and friendly welcome at reception, very comfortable room
Excellent value

Michael Askew   

Friendly and helpful staff, great breakfast and lovely room. Very reasonable rates. We have stayed at The Bell before and its just a good. Thank you very much.

Michael Austin   

A second visit following a very good first stay but this time only a single room available not my usual choice but the booking was for 1 night; good size single room with a compact ensuite. A characterful village pub, flag floors in part with quirky stair cases and corridors, a well stocked bar and good food, plus a great breakfast.

Ian Talbot   

A very enjoyable and pleasant stay on Wed 6th June. All your staff were so very helpful and accommodating. The pillows left a lot to be desired but otherwise our party thoroughly enjoyed their stay. The food was very good value for money.

John Gillingham   

We enjoyed a one night stay in late August 2018 and were delighted to be in the centre of town within such an historic building. Reception staff were delightful, they even gave us their personal fan due to the weather being so hot and the fan in the room being missing. Thank you for that.
A quick stroll around town assured us that we would definitely get the best pies for miles if we stayed in for dinner, so that's what we did and were not disappointed.
Winslow is the perfect place to stay if you intend to visit Bletchley Park, as we did, and I am certain we will return.

Lucille Reeves   

We wnjoyed everything. the service, food, comfort, antiquity, thankyou.


I booked a very late stay as I was working in the area. I got the very last room (No 30) the room was well equipped but very small, with extremely low doors and ceilings. I’m only 5’9” and struggled. The breakfast was very good and the staff couldn’t of been more helpful.


we throughly enjoyed our stay at “The Bell” truly excellent food, service and accommodation. Perfect in every way. We look forward to a return visit one day.

Bob Harvey   

On the hottest day of the year we enjoyed a most convivial night in Winslow. The staff are friendly and helpful and our room was very comfortable. Supper was very good and the following day for a lunch following our mother’s funeral things could not have been more carefully run. Thank you.

'James Barnes'   

Very good staff and cheerful atmosphere.
Spotlessly clean and good food
Very good value and most pleasant stay

Just wanted to say a massive thankyou to everyone for mums party last night! We had a great night, thankyou.


A traditional coaching inn full of character, friendly staff comfortable rooms and great food and ales

Gerard Shaw   

Thank you for accommodating all of us a party of 6 - we arrived with a warm welcome and booked into our rooms and the restaurant. We all enjoyed our meals, which where prepared fresh and scrumptious. We would have like to seen the award winning pies on the evening menu, however we have to come back and try another day. The rooms where clean and comfortable. Would recommend a visit.

Leanne Bates   

Every time we visit The bell, the staff and accommodation never disappoint.
Food is great too.
That's why we keep coming back.

Christina Kuligowski   

Receptionist was very helpful. Cosy room and really nice breakfast.

Paul Wheatman   

Stayed for 1 Friday night and the stay was Not the horror that some may image it could have been. The room was quite and comfortable. Ensuite was as large as some bedrooms elsewhere! Unfortunately missed the breakfast as had to be away early on saturday morning. Overall no complaints

Simon Couzens   

The Bell Hotel staff were most friendly and accommodating. The breakfast was good, though the toaster was a little slow. Our room was very comfortable, as was the bed.
The hot water in the bathroom was a bit hit and miss and the Jacuzzi did not work, but the bathroom itself was very plush.
We will return.

Christopher ALDERMAN   

Very warm welcoming, receptionist very kind and helpful, cute pub and outside area and cosied room
English breakfast tastiest I have had in a long time; overall lovely stay


A great pub, excellent Toby's Restaurant & very good service throughout the stay

Kevin Lenthall   

For some years six of us have met for a 'short break' in an assortment of locations. We get together from Kent, London and South Yorkshire and have often found it quite difficult to find a suitably 'central' location! The Bell has come up trumps on all fronts!

The staff are all very friendly and efficient, and the food excellent. Usually we try out the local restaurants wherever we stay, but The Bell is so varied and good that we opted to eat 'in house'. Toby's, the Carvery and the Bar food are all very varied and delicious ..... so there was no need to go elsewhere. Breakfast certainly set us up for our 'days out' too.

If I have any criticism at all it would be that the room that my wife and I had could do with a 'make over'. I am a very big bloke (!!!) and would have liked more space, which, I realise, was unavailable. Next time, and we will certainly return in the future, it will be at a time when all three couples can have larger rooms!

An excellent visit thank you. We have dined her previously and also had one previous overnight visit. Pies are delicious, will be taking some back again.


A warm welcome, great rooms, lovely food and a super breakfast. All at a very reasonable rate and within easy travel distance to our meeting location.

M Wederell   

very friendly reception, bar food and breakfast was excellent. we did not try the restaurant, so will save that for our next visit. comfortable room. well worth a visit.


richard walker   

The room was luxurious & comfortable. The jacuzzi worked well. The meal at the interval of the Winslow Hall Opera was tasty & promptly served. The breafast was good. We hope to come again next year.

Donald Wray   

It was great to be back at The Bell.
Friendly and welcoming staff.
Plenty parking spaces.
Big room with lovely bed and shower/bath.
Fantastic meal in the restaurant.
Oh, and don't forget the pie shop.
We are coming back at least twice this year.

Peter Faarkrog   

Great place to stay in mid Bucks. with lots of attractions within an hours drive. I used to stay here in the 80's and it still as good as it was then. The meat pies are the best you can find anywhere.

Brian Thorpe   

We enjoyed our stay over Christmas. There has been a lot of work done on room 42 since we first used it 3 or 4 years ago. This is much appreciated and made our stay very comfortable. The breakfasts were very good - local meat made the bacon and sausages special and the scrambled eggs were the best I have had for a long time.


A most enjoyable stay with a very good choice of good food, a splendid comfortable room and friendly attentive service throughout.


Have just completed a 2 night stay at The Bell Hotel. It exceeded my expectations, I was expecting a "normal" small town inn/hotel but the Bell exceeds that. The room were had was overlooking the market square. We were not disturbed by the noise from the road. The room was large with a high ceiling, very comfortable bed and the en-suite was bigger than some modern bedrooms! Can not fault the rest of the Hotels accommodation. The 16th century design of rooms and connecting passages makes the place quirky. 2 bars are available when needed and the bar meals are very good value for money and the award winning pies are just that. Good range of beers etc are also available. Can't fault the breakfast either - the chef cooked fried eggs to order rather than letting them sit there. Finally the staff very friendly and helpful. So in conclusion definitely a great place to stay and I will be returning .

Simon Couzens   

Excellent hotel, staff very helpful, rooms spacious and food excellent

Debbie Cummings   

We were at The Bell to celebrate the 150th Anniversary of The Bucks County Show. As usual the food was to a very high standard and was served efficiently by the ever friendly staff!

You never leave The Carvery hungry!

Steve Gayler   

Thoroughly enjoyed our one night stay in this lovely old pub. Helpful and friendly receptionist. Good choice at breakfast. Would happily recommend this pub for B and B.

Alan, Lord Harley   

Thank you for making my stay with you comfortable and friendly. I was working in the area and booked in for 1 night. My room was comfy, food was delicious and the Staff were friendly what more could i ask for. Thank you once again and i look forward to visiting again, soon i hope.

Tim Rice   

we enjoyed the stay tremendously! The staff was extremely helpful and enjoyable to communicate with. We received for gratis a fantastic room when our room appeared to have a problem and it was not possible to fix it on Saturday night. The receptionist is very friendly and smiley. The house is very interesting: based on a 17th century house and built around it, it is a maze! 100% recommend!

lev kantorovitch   

We enjoyed our 1 night stay lovely quiet room, the staff were really welcoming and very nice to chat too. Would definitely recommend.

Mrs Flynn   

We enjoyed our time with you, the food was excellent and the service was great. The only down side was that the shower in our room 42 did not work at all but had been told that it had been fixed, a shame really as we alway have a shower every day!!

Derek Phillips   

Fab food good rooms friendly staff
Woukd recommend

Kate Smith   

Receptionist was very welcoming very cosy room and very friendly staff

Lee jones   

Thank you for accommodating all four of us at the last minute! Our courtyard room was lovely and warm and the breakfast was delicious!!


We enjoyed our one night stay. The Bell Hotel is certainly one of the most charming hotels that we know. There was a spot of bother with the shower (cold) but we'll certainly revisit your hotel! Kind regards.
