Thank you Brisley Bell, you were brilliant from beginning to end, a proper relax, unwind & be looked after kind of weekend away. Exactly what we needed! The food was delicious. Top class.

    We we're very well looked after during our stay at the Brisley Bell. We stayed two nights as we explored the local area. The food was fantastic and the service made it even more lovely. The rooms were also great, really relaxing. I would have loved somewhere to hang my clothes but didn't take the shine off the stay at all.

    Hi, unfortunately I feel in need to post this review after my very displeasing experience in this place. I went there at about 6p.m to eat and drink something. I was expecting for something pretty okay counting the price but the quality was even less than mediocre: I think I'm not the best at evaluating food but the day earlier I bought some frozen meat at a mall for 1/4 of price and it tasted at least 3 times better. Anyway I wanted to close an eye on it and ordered some beer, hoping that it'd save my evening and let me forget about food. I was so wrong doing that decision, I should've walked away. when I got served my beer, I heard and saw a man probably in early fifties with dark hair and country clothes screaming at some workers, I'm pretty sure it was either the owner or a manager. I can't believe he treated his workers that bad, I got so mad I wanted to just throw my chair in the air along with the table and go away without paying. I can close an eye for food, I could even close an eye about prices, but the is absolutely no way in the world I can accept someone that treats their workers so badly. Of course I didn't even take a sip of my drink, I cleaned my face, delicately got up from the chair, and gave a very direct stare into that man's eyes and as soon as he saw me, no words came out of his mouth anymore. I walked up to him and said:"Thanks for the meal, and I truly hope that you'll get treated the same way you've treated those people". Placed the bill money on a table in front of him and walked away. You have earned my reward as top place where to never ever come back again. Goodbye and never seeing you again. -Gigi

    Amazing service and really good food. I have a hard time going to restaurants, I often come back home thinking I can do better at home! However this time I was presently surprised, the food was fantastic and the service was pretty amazing too! We had 3 course meal and a few drinks, affordable.
