Get To Know Us

Deep in the heart of the Warwickshire countryside, The Bell Inn is an outstanding 17th century inn, complete with exposed beams, flagstone floors, oak furniture, open fireplaces…and a warm welcome.

The Bell Inn has been providing refreshment for over 300 years. According to local history, William Shakespeare was on his way back to Stratford upon Avon in the rain after meeting Drayton and Ben Jonson for a drink at The Bell in Welford, when he contracted fatal pneumonia! Luckily the roads are somewhat better these days, and we can always arrange a taxi for you to get home.

More About Us

When Colin and Teresa moved to The Bell in 1995, their aim was to provide quality food, together with outstanding service, while also offering customers a really good pint if that’s all they wanted…and this is exactly what they’ve done!

The awards The Bell Inn is constantly winning are testament in themselves, as is the fact that customers keep on coming back again, and again, and again.

We are pleased and proud to announce

The Bell Inn – Welford-on-Avon has been named as the best dining pub in Warwickshire 2020.

(Six years running) The Bell Inn, which is now in its twenty-fifth year under the stewardship of landlord and landlady Colin and Teresa Ombler, has been given the prestigious title by the Good Pub Guide, a national institution and bible for pub-goers..
