After a bracing hour of crabbing we made our way to the local pub for a warming drink and light bite. We were really pleased to see that they welcome dogs in the pub as our Irish terrier was with us. However it was approaching lunch time and we had not anticipated how many other people would have the same...

Visited on a Wednesday lunchtime which was relatively quiet. We all ordered the steak pie which was tasty but so disappointed with the vegetables served. Small cereal bowl of chips served between two and four batons of carrot, three soggy courgettes and a floret of cauliflower. Gravy was the consistency of water. For £13 a head we expected much more....

Stayed here in April with our 9 year old and had a great time. The family room was very spacious and had a peaceful time ( note however that it overlooks the beer garden so maybe summer it is a little different). Pub is a higgledy piggledy series of rooms with wooden beams, open fire and olde worlde charm (...

Three of us visited from Lowestoft for an evening meal. Lovely friendly greeting, staff instantly made us feel welcome and relaxed. Food was to die for (Hot roast salmon king prawn and lobster sauce tagliatelle/ confit of duck in Cumberland sauce & a chargrilled chicken breast with salad and olives. Followed by a cheeseboard and great wine / Gin! Thankyou...

I've been coming here for years. Great pub, excellent pint of Adnams and consistently good food. Always a roaring fire. I will probably be coming here for more years to come. I am dropping a star though as although the food excellent, I thought it had dropped its standard a little. Whilst my vegetables were excellent my steak pie pastry...

Enjoyed a fabulous roast beef and Yorkshire pudding and all of the puddings were delicious (the toffee apple panna cotta was probably the best). It was very busy but they copied well and the service was friendly. It goes without saying that the Adnams ales were mighty fine too.

Have been coming here whenever we visit the area for many years - a perfect stop for a couple of pints and some food after a good walk. It looks like the menu has been tweaked and we ate from sandwiches and lite bites sections. The menu looked good but they are losing on the details. I had a sausage...

We have just spent three nights at The Bell in lovely Walberswick, we have stayed there many times over a period of years and totally enjoy the gentle unspoilt feel of the village, it's like a step back to the past, the perfect place for long walks by the sea. The Bell is a stones throw from the beach so...
