  • Jackie and Adam

    We have had nothing but praise for our amazing wedding reception at The Olde Bell. Thank you so much to the staff for providing such delicious food during our time at the Malt House & the Tithe Barn. We are particularly grateful to the head of ops who looked after a guest who fell ill during the evening – his wife mentioned how well looked after they were.

    The most thanks though goes to Sophie for helping me coordinate such a big day since March and allowing me to relax on the Wedding day as you were there all day from the very start to the end helping us with everything – it was very much appreciated.

    Thank you very much

  • Ben and Michelle

    Ben and I would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for truly giving us the best day of our lives. Everything on our big day was perfect, not even the rain could stop the joy. Thank you so much for being on hand to welcome us back to the barn when we arrived from the church. The umbrella was a perfect touch and well timed – so was the Prosecco! You really were hands on! The barn was set up perfectly and everything looked beautiful. We couldn’t thank you and the waiting staff enough. Everything ran so smoothly. The food was exceptional and all our guests raved about it for days afterwards. The chef is very good. We were very impressed. The Olde Bell really lived up to expectations if not exceeded them.

  • Ashley and Jo

    We had a wonderful day thank you. It was everything we hoped it would be. Lovely family affair and everyone really enjoyed themselves and commented how beautiful the Olde Bell was.

    The food was excellent especially the chicken dish which tasted amazing. Your staff were very accommodating and non intrusive and helped out with putting more chairs in the music room for the evening. Please say a big thank you to them and the kitchen crew as that played a really big part in us enjoying the weekend.

    It all seemed to go so quickly and Jo and I are already planning on a return visit.
