Accessibility Statement

Our statement aims to accurately describe the facilities and services, we offer to all our diners. The Bell Inn is a 16th Century inn. There are some factors to it where there is an on going challenge in complying with the Disability Discrimination Act 1995.


Due to the age and layout of the building, installing an elevator has not been possible. Therefore, unfortunately our guest accommodation located above the main pub can only be accessed via an external walkway and 9 steps. There are 3 steps down to the Dovecot bedroom, there is a handrail on the right. The room itself has 3 carpeted steps from the living room up to the bedroom. The ceiling height is restricted. In the bedroom


The valley room is on the same level as entering the accommodation. The valley has a beam running through the bedroom which does require some individuals to duck.


The loft apartment has uneven flooring and is reached via 11 carpeted steps into the kitchen area.

The Bell Inn is located in the village of Selsley and is 1 mile form the town of Stroud. For directions on how to reach us, please visit the Find Us page on this website.

Disability awareness forms part of our staff induction training and staff are encouraged to provide assistance to customers with differing mobility requirements, visual impairment or hearing difficulties. All of the team will happily assist with making menu and wine choices if you wish. Special dietary needs can be catered for on request. We are able to adapt most dishes to accommodate a specific request such as: gluten free, dairy free, all food intolerances, and vegetarian or pescatarian diners. Most things are possible, if we know in advance.
