About

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 historic buildings of The Olde Bell function like a village: the main Inn building for the overnight guests and locals, and the auxiliary buildings for private gatherings.

The kitchen uses homegrown, 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.

Cancellation Policy: Cancellations made before 12.00pm (midday) on the day prior to arrival will be done without charge, thereafter late cancellations and non-arrivals will be subject to the first night's accommodation charge.
