***IMPORTANT UPDATE From our owner*** 

Hope every one is well

I wanted to update locals on the situation at The Bell.

There has been confusion over a take away menu that we published in The Bell but didn’t get to put out on line.

This menu was going to run along side our normal menu while the pub was still trading and was due to go live last Friday the 20th of March, however that evening we were told to close. This has meant all staff are now laid off and we are trying to establish how they will be paid via the Government scheme, so no food is available as we speak.

We may be able to offer a take away fish & chip menu on Fridays & a limited Sunday roast menu on Sundays, both at specific times, in the near future, but it will depend on demand. Please watch this space.


With the pub closed and staff laid off we have been this week, and were proposing to going forward, open the Post Office 1pm – 5pm every week day, however yesterday we were told by PO HQ that all post office’s that are housed within properties that are closed, Pubs & Libraries for instance, must also close (as has the main PO in Solihull housed within WH Smiths)

In order to maintain some sort of service for the village we have agreed with PO HQ that we can remain open every afternoon still this week, and then will open 3 afternoons per week only, 1pm – 5pm Mondays, Wednesdays & Fridays starting next week Monday 30th March.

Please can you make other residents who may not have social media aware of these timings

Many Thanks



It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that we have to say that as of Friday 20th of March 2020 we have regrettably closed our doors for the foreseeable future.

We would like to thank the local community and our loyal customers for your continued support, not only towards the business but to our hardworking staff.

This has been an incredibly difficult and heartbreaking decision to make, but in light of current affairs we believe it is the best course of action.

For queries please email thebell@realcoolbars.com and we will get back to you when we can.

Keep an eye on our social media and website, as we find out more information as to how we can best serve our community in this difficult time.

Thank you,
Ashley and The Bell Team x

Enjoy our New Vegan Wines at The Bell

MERLOT EKUO:  £19.95

A fresh smooth Merlot from Italy: gentle and round and good on its own or with any food.

LA VIDA EN ROJO:  £19.95

A really appealing Syrah from Spain, Full, round and smooth. Delicious during the Autumn and Winter months.

Not all wines are Vegan because traditionally a lot of the fining agents contain animal products most notably egg whites or milk protein Winemakers are tending to look at new ways of making wines Vegan, this has meant a shift to plant based fining systems like using chickpeas and also some wine makers are deciding not to fine as they feel it deprives them of natural flavours. This has been the birth of Natural Wines which tend to be a bit cloudy.

Ask about our vegan food options accompany your wine.
