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

We stayed at High House, which we understand is a recent acquisition for The Bell. Our room, High Tide, was chic and comfortable, with tasteful soft furnishings and the bed dressed with high quality linens. The en suite was huge, with stand alone bath and walk-in shower. High House is listed and it shows - you can't go wrong with... More

The Bell Inn was recommended to me by a business acquaintance as a comfortable choice of accommodation when visiting clients in the Thurrock area.... The recommendation came with such positive depth that I decided to ask my wife along for this particular business trip... Our room was High Heavens, the room had recently been refurbished which had been done to... More

I stayed here on business for 4 weeks and was lucky to have a suite. The pub/restaurant part is in a separate building with two other buildings that comprise the hotel. The room was stunning, the food superb, the restaurant ambiance was good and it was always packed without being unpleasant. The only slight problem is that you had to... More
