Our Team

The Bell Inn wouldn’t be complete without the fabulous local staff! Headed up by your Landlord, James (below) and we employ very hard working, local, kitchen and front of house teams drawn from the Heyfords and the Cherwell Valley in whom we invest a considerable amount of time to train and bring on as the next generation of hospitality professionals…..

James is a hugely experienced Bar Manager with several years in leading London establishments (he won’t tell us which ones in case we find out more about him!) What he doesn’t know about ales, ciders and cellarmanship is probably not worth knowing but he’s modest enough to say he’s always learning!! Having been closely involved locally with Oxfordshire Narrowboats in recent years he has his own boat and also hugely knowledgeable about the canal and local walks – a Landlord and Tourist Information Service all in one! Completely customer-focussed, he’s only happy when you are….

Friendly and welcoming, we invite you to relax in the comfort that we are here to serve! We hope that you absolutely love your visit, please let us know if there is anything more we can do.

If you are tempted please view our menus.
