We popped in to Eight Bells for dinner our first night in Chipping Campden.
Normally, I don’t think it would be a problem showing up for dinner without a reservation, but the Chipping Campden International Music Festival was going on.
Luckily they had a couple seats available in the bar. The dining room was lovely, but we really liked the bar with its low beamed ceilings.
It was kind of nice to relax while just about everyone else was trying to finish up in time to head over to the concert.
I ordered the Home-cooked Honey Glazed Roast Ham with a Fried Ducks Egg, Hand-cut Chips, Local Asparagus, and Grilled Tomato served with Tewkesbury Mustard (£13.50).
PIC ordered the Home-made Chicken, Leek, and Gammon Ham Short Crust Pastry Pie (with a top and a bottom), served with Buttered Mash, Garden Peas and Gravy (£13.50).
Both dishes were executed well and very tasty. Service was attentive without being overbearing.
