Most importantly, we aim to be the best in simple, but highest quality, fresh British pub food for the most discerning diners. Business owned by experienced foodie owner/managers, Chris Wright and Peter Austen.
We have an unbeatable reputation for consistently being one of the top food led pubs in the Cotswolds. We’re lucky, because the Bell is a centuries old building, oozing charm, and for decades it’s been buzzing with delighted customers. Sapperton is one of the most beautiful villages in Britain, in the heart of the Cotswolds.
Our customers are everything to us and they are both discerning ‘foodies’ who have driven hours to get here and also our local community who love us for still being a proper independent pub, unlike so many of our competitors in the region. We look after anywhere between 50 and 250 covers a day, depending on the time of year. Yes, we’ve got great awards and reviews, but, most importantly, we’re still growing and we’re professional too.
