Visited this pub last Sunday by passing in front of it when we were looking for a place to eat. The place was very busy, however, a lovely waitress show us a lovely table near the fireplace. The ale on tap -Wandle- was very good and not cloudy as it happens so many times in the pubs in generally. The... More

We have spent a few lunch times at the Bell, the food is good & the atmosphere cosy & comfortable. I have a request, could they serve the delicious wild boar pâté with ginger, it used to be on the menu at the Flower pot pub which I believe is part of the group.

We visited for a private function. The upstairs room was decent size and well decorated with its own bar, toilets and balcony. The music was run off my friend's iPad which was a nice touch. We didn't eat in the main bar but the food looked good and there was a really good beer and drink selection. The staff were... More

I couldn't agree more with the previous reviewer's description of Christmas Day lunch. Our table was sticky and our seats were badly stained - in fact the seat pads were wet. We had to put cushions down to sit on. The staff just didn't want to be there. Food did come out very quickly and was hot but the portions... More

Thank you for taking the time to leave this review. Unfortunately the pub and team are only as good as the General Manager running the pub on a day to day basis. After the reviews and feedback received particularly in December we parted company with the old GM. Pierre has been working really hard with the team at the pub... More

Since my last visit and subsequent review, The Bell Inn has engaged a new manager, Pierre Cudon who very kindly offered me and my fellow diners, a complimentary meal to compensate for our unfortunate Sunday lunch experience. We took up his offer last evening without announcing to the team on duty nor to Pierre, no-one knew that we were the... More

We had a rather bad experience of The Bell a few weeks ago but credit to their new manager who contacted me to see if he could change our opinion of this pub. Well from the moment we stepped in the door the whole place had a completely different feel. We were warmly welcomed and promptly shown to our table.... More
