About Us

The Bell – Pub. Gastropub. Restaurant

The Bell is a welcoming picturesque country gastropub with an unusually large range of Organic wine. We pride ourselves on our freshly cooked, locally sourced, seasonally influenced a la carte menu supplemented by daily-changing specials on the specials board.

The Bell is located just outside Aylesbury in the beautiful Buckinghamshire countryside.  It is a 17th Century pub and is the perfect place to unwind in front of a roaring log fire, or feel the warmth of spring and summer in our generous and peaceful walled gardens and outdoor patio.  

The Bell – The Local Country Pub

The Bell is located within three miles of Whitchurch, Weedon and Bierton villages and the areas of Watermead, Buckingham Park,and Fairford Leys in Aylesbury and offer the tranquility and community of a country pub.  We have invested in super fast broadband for locals and business people alike to join us for a working lunch during the week.  The Bell hosts a monthly pub quiz which is hugely popular and regularly welcomes teams from all of the above locations.

The Bell – For freshly cooked food for the whole family, for every family

The Bell also cater for families with members who need or choose to eat a particular diet – most of our menu is gluten and dairy free and we always provide delicious options for vegetarians and vegans.  We are both family friendly – high chairs are available and we have a freshly cooked children’s menu- and dog friendly (one side of the pub has a flagstone floor).
