What our costumers say

“Definitely recommend…”
Excellent meal. Very wide menu with some unusual choices, the Pigeon was very good. Good friendly service – will definitely recommend to friends and family.

*Such a fun evening…”
This was such a fun evening for us! The experience of dining while blindfolded was exciting and guessing the courses was much harder than I thought it would be. The food was truly inspiring and the staff took such good care of us. Please let us know when this event roles around again. A big thank you to everyone at the Eight Bells for making this a great night!

- Mike & Suzanne

“Really nice choice…”
Really nice choice of sandwiches, good to see different fillings, the chicken and pesto was delicious. The staff were really friendly and welcoming.

- Amy

We look forward to seeing you soon
