About the hotel

The Five Bells is a 17th Century traditional “Chocolate Box” Freehouse Inn in the rolling Berkshire countryside. Located 4 miles from Newbury. Steeped in charm and full of character, this lovely old inn has undergone a full refurbishment by the new owners in May 2012.

We have four Ensuite doubles and one ensuite single rooms available. Serving an ever changing selection of at least 9 of the country’s finest Ales, some local, all well kept, some very unusual and some old favourites, but we will only serve the best that Britain’s finest brewers have to offer, making us THE destination real ale pub in West Berkshire and probably further afield too.

Proper country Inn, great food and service.

We booked here for a visit to Newbury .It is very easy to find and has good parking.Our room was quite small and fairly basic but the bed was very comfortable.Tea making facilities in the room .

Dinner was available in the inn and the choice was amazing. All food is made on the premises and good home cooking. We were given friendly service from all of the staff who seemed to really care. If you're in to real ales and ciders and good home cooking then this is the place for you. Breakfast was very good . The shining star of staying here was service.These folks really care.

Clean, comfortable room.

Very good stay after a long day, staff very helpful and friendly, room very clean and comfortable, food OK but very heavy on the salt which left me up during night gasping for water, breakfast however was excellent but still a little salty.
