The Bell Inn is a charming family run pub situated in the heart of the idyllic village of Ducklington offering delicious food & drink alongside 5 cosy bedrooms.
This pub is located in Ducklington, a picturesque village set only a mile off the A40, providing guests with easy and quick access to Oxford city as well as offering the tranquility of a quaint Cotswold village.
As the only pub in Ducklington, The Bell is the heart of the community and a statement of the village’s history and traditions. From the repurposed church pews to the glass-topped old well in the bar, there are mementos of Ducklington’s history throughout the inn that allows visitors to step back into the village’s history.
Even the inn’s pub games are nods to its history, at the bar there is a game of Ringing The Bull set up at the fireplace, a game supposedly brought back during the Crusades, whilst in the courtyard locals and visitors alike play games of Aunty Sally.
The Bell Inn’s thatched-roofs and exposed beams provide it with a quaint and homely feel from the bar and the country kitchen to the five rooms upstairs. All the rooms have en-suites and are accessed via an external entrance separate from the bar, to provide guests with an extra degree of privacy and security. They offer a variety of rooms from family rooms to single and twin rooms.
The country kitchen is a homely restaurant that offers a traditional menu with a creative twist, including dishes such as seasonal homemade quiches, their signature twice-cooked chips and famous Ducklington’s filled ciabattas. The restaurant is located inside the old cottage where you can sit by the original fireplace and enjoy home-cooked dishes. On Sundays, they offer a traditional carvery between 12-midday and 4pm.
