We had Saturday lunch here. We shared a starter of whitebait which was OK but nothing special. For a main course I had hot smoked salmon with samphire and sun dried tomatoes from the Specials board. This was really very good. However, my friend had the fish stew which was considerably less good; it was essentially chunks of fish in... More

My husband and I stayed in this pub this weekend and it was a great place to be. We did have the best room. Room 6 which was very spacious. It was very clean with a lovely en-suite bathroom and tea and coffee. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Excellent breakfast. The food was also very good with changing... More

This is a find! A wonderfully situated hotel - right on the lovely beach which is sand and dunes and goes for miles - My sister and I stayed - we had a family room - three beds with lots of space - good bathroom - our own entrance from the back of the pub and seaviews. Comfortable beds. We... More

Stayed one night while working in the area. Had Room 3 which has the low ceiling so beware, it's also above the bar and a little noise can be heard if people chatting directly below. However at night place was very quiet and bed comfortable ensuring a good night's sleep. The shower was a little cramped but the water was... More

My husband and our children 12 and 10 and our friends went to stay at The Bell Inn at Walberswick for my birthday a couple of weeks ago. We had the best time ever and I just wanted to thank the Bell Inn for looking after us so well. The rooms were lovely, had everything you needed, the breakfast in... More

Just returned from a few days in Walberswick. We have stayed in the area many times over the years but this was our first stay at The Bell. Had a brilliant time. The staff were very welcoming and the food was obviously home made and beautifully cooked - I would particularly recommend the fish dishes. I chose the same breakfast... More

First time we have stayed in the area, Walberswick and Southwold were both very nice. The pub is well situated for Walberswick beach and if the ferry (row boat) is working just a 5 minute walk to Southwold Harbour and 30 minutes to Southwold Pier (add another 35 minutes with no ferry). This is a lovely old pub with a... More

We have visited the area for many years and have always had an evening meal at the Bell. For the first time we were disappointed, my husband had the madras curry which tasted of spiced gravy. I had the chicken and ham pie, which I had had before and it was tasteless this time. We felt the staff just wanted... More

We stayed here on the 29th & 30th May with friends and their dogs. We had four rooms, we stayed in room 3 which was spacious, but the ceiling is low with a beam which husband hit his head on a few times as he is over 6 foot! The bathroom was very clean, with plenty of hot water and... More

Stayed with friends in May. Lovely setting & "Olde Worlde" bar. The first night had to wait ages for a drink whilst the barmaid chatted on her mobile! When she served us there was a good choice of drinks. The evening meal was served promptly. The breakfasts were outstanding & far better in quality than the evening meals which were... More
