Having stayed here many times now it would seem every visit just gets better and better. The rooms are first class and are very clean, good helpful staff complete the picture. The food is second to none and is at all times well presented.

We have just spent 4 nights at The Bell whilst visiting nearby family and could not have wished for a better experience. The staff were all friendly and attentive and made us feel completely at home. The Sunday lunch for ourselves and family was of a very high quality and a high chair for the baby was no problem as... More

Stayed here for 3 weeks had some awesome room loads of space. Friendly staff happy to help with anything. The restaurant is the best in Essex with great fresh food and very helpful staff. No request was too much they were very knowable about the food and the products within. Looking forward to my next stay

I had been nominated to organise a retirement party for 14 teachers- not an easy task since teachers en masse can be quite a challenge! The choice of venue was easy to agree on as the reputation of The Bell was well known as being excellent amongst those who had been invited. The evening was enjoyed by all, excellent food... More

We were advised that the Bell Inn was one of the best pubs for food in Essex - we have been twice - the first time to see if was good enough for our friend who was going to be 80 - it was as good as we had heard., We booked for the 80th Birthday and we all had... More

Situated in a picturesque little country village. Oldy worldy pub/hotel with masses of hanging baskets and pub garden. An oasis within a surrounding built up area. Excellent accommodating staff. Great for dog owners. There is a field to run your dog at the back of the hotel owned by hotel. We were allowed to take our well behaved dog into... More

My Husband and I have visited The Bell many times over the past thirty years but had never stayed in any of the rooms before, so decided to give it a try over the Feast and Fayre weekend. We had the 'Anne Boleyn' room which was clean and tidy, if a little tired. However, the point to note on this... More

We choose the rooms in hill house part off the hotel as they looked more contempary. Spacious room and great bathroom. Dinner was excellent. The key success to this place is its staff who are attentive and friendly. There is an understated luxury here with great prices.

I have been to this place as a single man, a couple and now married man with family. From 2002 to now the place has not only maintained its charm, friendly atmosphere and quality but improved. It is simply the best pub/dining night in Thurrock. Go and enjoy..

My husband and I spent 3 nights here in May when visiting the area for a wedding - very glad indeed that we had more than just a single night here, as both the hotel and restaurant are fantastic. We stayed in the Captain's Cabin, which is a fantastic quirky little room with a double cabin bunk bed, in a... More
