It is a very nice Inn in a beautiful part of the New Forrest. It is quiet so not great for big groups or someone wanting a bit more on the social side. The issues they have are with their staff. There was one excellent staff member called Jamie who was phenomenal. The rest of the staff in the bar & restaurant where either absent, seemingly intoxicated or not very competent. I think it is hard to get good staff at the moment and you definitely feel The Bell Inn is a victim of that as they are so close to nailing it. The food is truly excellent.
Nestled in the heart of the New Forest National Park, The Bell Inn is immersed in natural beauty, the perfect destination to escape the real world for a few days. For golfers, it just keeps getting better; The Bell Inn is home to the Bramshaw Golf Club where you will find two distinct but outstanding golf courses.
The Forest Course is not just the oldest course at The Bell Inn but in all of Hampshire, dating back to 1865, the course has only improved with age. After a round, you’ll step off of the fairways and into the comfort of the country inn, where you are treated to a warm welcome and some of the best cuisine in the region.
