Built in the 14th century to house the stonemasons who built St. James’ Church, the Inn got its name by later being used to store the eight bells that were hung in the church tower. The 17th century saw the Inn rebuilt using most of the original stone and timbers, then was extended in the Georgian period into what stands today – an outstanding example of a traditional Cotswolds Inn.
If the sun’s shining, why not sit in the terraced garden overlooking the almshouses and St. James’ Church for a drink or bite to eat? Sit by the fire for dinner on a wet and windy day? Or why not enjoy a few nights in one of our six deluxe en-suite guest bedrooms?
