Indeed as Richard points out, this is a devil of a place to find - not The Bell, rather Yarpole which isn't visible from the road; the pub itself is on a wide main road in the centre of a village of architecture, old and new.
Obviously it's hard to give a rating for a pub which I've not visited for 11 years, and one which I visited frequently in the early 1970s when John Smith was the guvnor and long summer afternoons were spent in the garden. I recall it in the late 1980s when it was run by Cyril and his 'brother' and Balti (Hindi for bucket) curry was on the menu with covers that read 'Welcome to the World of Balti'. Then there was a young American landlord with his Japanese wife. In 1995 hollandaise sauce was on the menu and later still, it certainly tried to be a gastropub, garnering 8/10 when reviewed by Shaun Hill in The Guardian back in 2006: '...poached cod fillet with courgette and coriander purée and glazed spring vegetables...The cod was poached perfectly, still moist and shining mother-of-pearl, and the vegetables were fresh and crunchy in a chlorophyll sauce of green herbs and oil'; this probably explained the presence of large BMWs in the car park and a meal for two that cost £60, so if it is now a locals' pub then it must have reverted to this state of affairs.
As I recall it, there was a two-room format: one was pretty basic, the other traditional with black painted beams and décor along the likes of soft furnishings, hanging plates and Toby jugs. To the right of the main entrance was the long dining room, once the cider mill rather than barn which still had the huge stone wheel press on show.
I hope to be returning very soon so an update is on the cards.
