What a lovely Pub/Restaurant/Hotel a stones throw away from lovely sandy beach. We came here twice for lunch - we have a dog and the weather wasn't kibd enough for us to sit in their garden. No problem with admitting well behaved dogs whilst we had delicious starters and mains. Very good value and freshly cooked fare. There is also... More

We had a 2 night stay here with friends and we will definitely visit again. Its a very relaxed place, very nicely decorated rooms which were clean, airy and bright. The food was very good and the service friendly

Very enjoyable stay at the Bell Inn. The room along with the on suite was very clean and modern and the staff very pleasant. We visited on the May bank holiday so the Inn became very busy particularly in the evenings but despite this the staff were very efficient and we did not have to wait long for the food... More

Took a short-notice break in mid-April to see what it's like in that part of the country. And what a great escape it turned out to be ! It was a terrific time to see Suffolk - and an ideal time to enjoy Walberswick. The Bell Inn was just what we wanted and far exceeded our expectations. The room was... More

This was great place to stay. The staff were helpful and friendly. The food was well prepared and good value helped by the excellent range of Adnam's beers. The rooms were comfortable and well stocked for making hot drinks. The extra milk that was available was appreciated. The only niggle being that breakfast was only served between 9.00 and 9.30am....

Just spent a couple of idyllic days staying at the pub & visiting Southwold. Room was v clean, staff all friendly and food was v good. Recommend the cod & chips and the full English breakfast. We will definitely be returning & would highly recommend the bell inn and the surrounding village.

Spent two lovely relaxing days here recently. Such a beautiful building, full of interesting nooks & crannies, and gardens too very inviting for a lunch in the sun. Although we have eaten here a few times in the past, this was our first stay, hopefully not our last. Food was of a high standard, served in a relaxed setting, with... More

By mistake, I left my comments about The Bell on the restaurant page so I'll re-post in the right place! Just spent a very pleasant couple of nights at The Bell. Our room was fine, smallish but all you need was there. The staff were all good and we wanted for nothing. Overall, a really good place to stay and... More

I could not imagine a trip to Walberswick without a visit to the Bell. It is evocative of so many childhood holidays, sat out in the lovely gardens with a bottle of coke (holiday treat!) and a packet of crisps in hand. The garden remains relatively sheltered by the dunes and banking, and even on a windy day, it is... More
