    The Lydden Bell once had a great reputation. Booked for two off the Tastecard app, never again.
    The pub still has a great atmosphere, the staff were on the ball and the beer very drinkable.
    But the food - absolutely awful. We both ordered rib eye steak priced at £18.95. Must be good at this price.
    We requested “rare” and “medium rare”.
    We got an overlooked, scorched offering which was tough as old boots.The chips were greasy and were possibly re-heated. The salad was gritty obviously not washed properly.
    We complained to the man in charge, met with indifference.
    We grudgingly paid the bill.

    I have severe doubts about the numerous five star feedback ratings on the Tastecard app. Keep clear. "

    Using the Tastecard is simple in other places, but not here?
    Won’t be going back. We have a lot of places locally to us where Tastecard is easy to use and the food is a great deal better. "

    Booked a table for 4 over the phone and stated that all 4 of us are Tastecard members.Nothing was mentioned that only one Tastecard could be used per table.
    On arrival we again stated that we were all Tastecard members, the staff said nothing.
    Although being with friends my wife and l and our friends always pay our own bills.
    I asked for our bill and our friends asked for theirs.
    We were told that it was only one bill as we all sat on the same table and that the Tastecard discount was one card per table,not one per couple?
    We argued that we were 2 couples and wished for separate bills. Apparently this couldn’t be done,so we paid the bill, our friends paying with their credit card and us with ours. This was easily done, but splitting the bill wasn’t?
    It’s a nice pub and the food and service acceptable.
    We’ve had better service and food at other places and no ambiguity using the Tastecard
    If you try this place, don’t get caught out!! "

    We visited this Pub at Lunchtime following a walk along the nearby white cliffs.
    Fairly unassuming pub from the outside, however lovely inside.

    The food (and service) however was a revelation.

    The menu was a real surprise , the food presentation very good.

    But above all the food was fantastic, far above what you expect in a small village pub.

    We will definitely be returning with friends in the future. "

    Having had wonderful meals at the Anchor inn we expected the same for the sister pub Lydden Bell. We tried 6 times to call and mention our tastecard but were told they do not answer the phone between 3-6... Why!? They open at 6 for food how can you reserve a table between these hours!?

    Waiter was not friendly in the slightest and refused our tastecard because we hadn't called (we had tried!!). The entire place was empty so I saw no reason why they wouldn't accept it. Absolutely ridiculous policy.

    They do not have menus, so customers have to stand to read the menu from the fire place.

    Food was very overpriced and overcooked.

    Waiter stood around the entire time flirting with the young waitresses, entirely unprofessional and not a pleasant eating experience.

    Will not under any circumstances be going back or recommending to anyone. £45 for two overcooked pub meals and 2 drinks. "

    " Went the Lydden Bell for the first time on Thursday. Went for Lunch with two friends and we all had a superb meal, in a great country pub atmosphere, at a sensible price and with genuinely friendly staff. We will most certainly visit it again and will happily recommend it to our friends.
    Keep up the great work. "

    Beautifully presented, tasty, homecooked food. I would recommend to all to eat here! No qualms about using the tastecard and made it great value for money. Had a lovely fire roaring, made it very cosy.
    Great service! "

  • JM said: "Excellent !
    We visited this Pub at Lunchtime following a walk along the nearby white cliffs.
    Fairly unassuming pub from the outside, however lovely inside.

    The food (and service) however was a revelation.

    The menu was a real surprise , the food presentation very good.

    But above all the food was fantastic, far above what you expect in a small village pub.

    We will definitely be returning with friends in the future. "

  • Steve said: "Atrocious Service
    Having had wonderful meals at the Anchor inn we expected the same for the sister pub Lydden Bell. We tried 6 times to call and mention our tastecard but were told they do not answer the phone between 3-6... Why!? They open at 6 for food how can you reserve a table between these hours!?

    Waiter was not friendly in the slightest and refused our tastecard because we hadn't called (we had tried!!). The entire place was empty so I saw no reason why they wouldn't accept it. Absolutely ridiculous policy.

    They do not have menus, so customers have to stand to read the menu from the fire place.

    Food was very overpriced and overcooked.

    Waiter stood around the entire time flirting with the young waitresses, entirely unprofessional and not a pleasant eating experience.

    Will not under any circumstances be going back or recommending to anyone. £45 for two overcooked pub meals and 2 drinks. "
