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.

Fantastic stay!

Beautiful pub with seriously excellent food offered a quiet room at a great price- it definitely exceeded my expectations and I would recommend the Five Bells!

Quaint old country pub.

My wife and I stayed at the Five Bells and were thoroughly satisfied with the place, it was home clean, not hospital clean, nice comfy bed, pumped hot water for the shower, room serviced daily, and of course the bar provided a fine selection of ales, some brewed on the premises, and a wide range of quality food.

The breakfasts were good, bacon, eggs, black pud etc, or cereals, and juice and coffee, or tea, nice friendly helpful staff, I would definitely recommend a stay here if you need accommodation near Newbury, way more character than a ghastly Travel Lodge, for a similar price.
