The Olde Bell is a modern coaching inn, set in historic timber framed buildings providing eating, drinking, gatherings and lodgings. Located only 45 minutes from central London, in East Berkshire, with great access to Henley on Thames, Maidenhead and Marlow. The Olde Bell has 48 bedrooms, a celebrated restaurant and 7 private rooms seating up to 150 people for weddings, parties and meetings.

The Olde Bell is not a hotel where the rooms dominate, but where the common spaces are the heartbeat of the place. The buildings function almost like a village in itself; the main building for the overnight guests and locals, and the auxiliary buildings for private gatherings.

The kitchen uses locally grown, seasonal produce served with a generosity of spirit in both flavour and portions. With parts of the inn dating back to 1135 and with nooks, crannies and crooked floors The Olde Bell offers traditional hospitality in an environment which is human, warm and social.

We are classified as a 5 Gold Star Inn by the AA Hotel Guide and has been awarded 2 Rosettes from the AA Restaurant Guide. 

The Olde Bell is a re-invention of the traditional English Inn – providing eating, drinking and lodgings.
