Events and Activities

For all of the family

We are committed to offering a range of events for locals and visitors alike. The first part of this year has been about improving the food offering and building the popularity of the The Bell.  The monthly quiz has been growing in popularity and is now a village social event and is attracting teams from Watermead and Buckingham Park.

In the second half of the year, we are planning to start organising events.  We are also thinking of film nights and activities during the day such as yoga, meditation, mindfulness and other such classes making use of our wonderful patio area.

See below for the latest list and do not hesitate to book.
