The majority of pubs have now reopened after the latest lockdown, albeit still with restrictions. Many pubs currently have temporary trading hours; these are shown where known. We also show pubs we know have still not reopened as temporarily closed.

Walberswick Bell Inn

Walberswick Bell Inn

Dear customers

We’ve taken the unfortunate decision to temporarily close The Bell, reopening on Saturday 26th June, because a number of our team have been contacted by NHS Test & Trace and told to self-isolate. These teammates are all fine and probably already bored and frustrated with having to stay at home. We’re really sorry for any disruption this may cause you, but we just don’t have enough other teammates to run the pub to our usual great standards over the next few days.

Please be absolutely assured this doesn’t affect any customers who have visited over the past few days and we look forward to seeing you all soon.

Tom, Jo and the rest of The Bell Team.

Real Ale is sold here.

The 600 year old Inn is situated in the heart of the settlement, near to the village green & just a stone's throw from the sea. Internally it has many seating areas & historic features. It can be very busy for food at weekends in summer. Smugglers' tunnels between the Bell & the beach have been uncovered, though apparently they have since collapsed. Walberswick can be accessed from Southwold via a footbridge.

There's a toilet for disabled customers.
