As of 28 July 2021 this Pub is now open all week and only closes on Sunday evening. The temporary undercover seated area outside is still being used as well as the indoor restaurant which is now open.

Offers a simply furnished but comfortable public bar and a larger & characterful restaurant/lounge. Exposed oak beams throughout and a large fireplace with wood-burner in each bar. Scrubbed wooden floors in bar areas, tiled floor in restaurant. Popular for food.

The current building was originally four cottages dating from about 1625. They were converted in 1968 to create this attractive pub.

Dogs are welcome in the pub but not in the restaurant area.

The original Bell (shown here on an old OS map from about the end of the 19th century) was opposite the church. larger map
