We are currently sitting here fully satisfied by this pub food that is anything but. The atmosphere is relaxed and the staff very friendly and accommodating. The chef is above par. You must come for a meal. We can highly recommend the fish and chips, mushroom pasta and chicken skewers (the ginger beer is ideal too, coming from an Australian). Absolutely amazed. Thank you.more

A friendly local with friendly staff. It hooks onto some great aspects of a traditional pub, whilst moving towards the more young/student crowd. Food is very tasty and reasonably priced, although some beers are a bit on the step side. It serves as a good local pub in am area with very few left.more

This is my local and it's a proper pub. Staff and punters are all very friendly. There's a good selection of beers, pool table and Sky sports for when I want to kick the other half out the house.more

Unusually orange on the outside, I suppose this is a decent old fashioned pub on the inside but with hordes of local ManUre fans filling up the inside and the pool table taking up the only football free zone, we were relegated to the tiny table out back (even the most optimistic beery chap couldn't call it a 'beer garden')

Couple of alright Young's beersmore

'Never judge by a book by its cover.' A lesson drummed into all of us from an early age, and when it comes to The Bow Bells I'm glad I listened. I don't know who painted it or why they chose the most ghastly shade of orange imaginable but it's certainly eye-catching and not in a good way.

Inside however is a different story. The Bow Bells is a timely reminder of what a real pub should be:...more
