The Four Bells Inn

The Four Bells Inn is a lovely rural pub and restaurant in the pretty village of Woodborough, just a few miles from Nottingham. Surrounded by excellent walks, this pub is family- and dog-friendly. Located in a quirky Tudor-style building, the pub also has a fabulous garden with lots of facilities for the kids. Owners Craig and Gaynor have placed the emphasis on creating a vibrant, seasonal and varied menu, emphasising the “Best of British” food with ingredients sourced locally wherever possible, including fruit, vegetables and herbs fresh from the pub’s own allotment.

The menu highlights the provenance of the food, from Hambleton Bakery’s sourdough and Tony Wright’s sausages to Maxeys Farm Shop’s Huntsman’s Pie with the Ploughman’s. There are daily specials, a selection of small plates (we loved the baked camembert with home-smoked garlic and sourdough toasts when we visited), main meals (from a leg of lamb ‘gigot’ steak to pancetta-wrapped monkfish or Lincolnshire Poacher pie), salads, bavette or picanha rump steaks, bar snacks, homemade puddings and, of course, the traditional roast on Sundays. The Four Bells’ menu stands out as just that bit different from your usual pub fare.

Combined with friendly service and a good selection of ales and wines, this pub is an excellent reward after a long walk in the Nottinghamshire countryside.

    My husband and I recently visited the Four Bells to find that it had been refreshed since our last visit. What was already a lovely traditional exterior with a sense of interior charm has been given some super stylish design touches, by someone who clearly has a bit of an eye for that sort of thing; and an increase in seating capacity which I guess it needed as it’s often busy. The food as always was excellent, we both had an 8oz burger, not for the faint hearted, which I’ve got to say doesn’t disappoint. This has got to be one of the best burgers for some miles around and comes with all the trimmings plus some of the best wedge style chips I have ever tasted. The presentation is spot on and everything coming out of the kitchen has been thought about, even down to specific plates, boards etc to match the food. The atmosphere is friendly and the staff are attentive in just the right way. If you’re not eating you can get a great coffee and you can even purchase a pack of local eggs from the bar before you leave. This is one great place to while away some time.
