Restaurant and Bar

The Bell at Sapperton

The Bell at Sapperton is an independent, family-owned country pub, situated in the heart of the Cotswold Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Owned and run by Gloucestershire born and bred publican Peter Austen, we aim to offer great but relaxed hospitality and consistently great pub food prepared with fresh, seasonal and regionally sourced ingredients.

We’re told there’s a smattering of magic added by the kitchen team. For wine enthusiasts, we have a top-notch ‘Wine Wall’ in the bar area, which is a self-serve wine shop of dozens of carefully sourced wines to take away (‘Out’) or to drink here (‘In’) with a small extra £10 to £20 charge no matter what the bottle is – possibly the best value wines for discerning drinkers anywhere in Britain. Come and see for yourselves!

We’re multi-award winning and particularly well known throughout the region for our food, whilst proud of still being a top-notch pub in every sense of the word. Situated just off the A419 between the towns of Stroud and Cirencester (both just 10 minutes away) in the sleepy and picturesque village of Sapperton, we aim to be a hub for the local community as much as a rural destination for discerning foodies, wine lovers, real ale enthusiasts and party organisers. We’re surrounded by invigorating walks, horse rides (we provide ‘Horse Parking’ too!) and bike rides. Roaring log fires and cosy corners in the winter, and a beautifully landscaped garden and courtyard for summer means the Bell has something for all seasons.

We pride ourselves on using some of the most wonderful ingredients the Cotswolds region has to offer, straight to your plate. Our lamb and venison are usually no more than a field or two away and we warmly invite our hard-working local producers, brewers and farmers to pop in and meet us! Lovers of good wine will love our innovative ‘Wine Wall’ which is our wine shop in the front bar. These are mostly bottles we’ve sourced ourselves (from our own arduous wine travels around the world) and they don’t have the usual horrible restaurant mark-ups. Instead, we sell all our Wine Wall wines with just an extra £10 to £20 to drink in with your meal. Wine lovers will be hard pushed to find a better deal anywhere else. Happy quaffing! In addition to the Wine Wall, we always have over 20 delicious still and sparkling wines by the glass.
