The pub is adjacent to bus station, close to town centre and near to the river Waveney, so it is handy for visitors to the Broads. It was refurbished internally prior to re-opening in October 2020 under new management. There is a central bar area and a side room and a separate dining area, which doubles as a function room. A paved garden is at the rear and tables are set out in front of the pub in summer months.

This 17th century pub stands on a site which has supported licensed premises since 1620.

Footnote

The odd name may indicate that there were originally two pubs on this site, one called the Bear, the other the Bell or Bells.
