DING DONG! Bell's Diner

Bell’s Diner has been quietly going about its business in Montpelier (a somewhat less than trendy corner of Bristol) for decades. Despite changes of ownership and menu style over the years, Bell’s continues to qualify as a neighbourhood gem. As ever, longevity makes for a confident restaurant – and it was the perfect venue for the Guild of Foodwriters’ “West Country” lunch.
