The Bell is included in this guide for historical reasons, as this area was part of Suffolk until 1974. Please note that we don't keep up-to-date details of the pub.

The building dates from the late 16th century and once incorporated a brewery. It was originally a hostel serving the local priory, but became an inn at the time of the Reformation. It claims to be the oldest pub in Norfolk.
