Good food
Oct 2021
The food was good. All dishes were enjoyable and portion size just right. my only suggestion is a name change to "The Thurnham Bell" It is located in Thurnham not Bearsted.

Amazing food and service!
Jul 2021 • Family
We visited the Bell as a family of four that all have different food preferences. The food was absolutely beautiful! And the two ladies serving us, Sequoyah and Sandra, delivered the best service with a smile on their face. Nothing was too much trouble! Would highly recommend!!! Will be returning very soon!

Memorable Quality and Value for a Takeaway Treat
Feb 2021
Our second Thai takeaway from The Bell's gourmet kitchen during lockdown. The menu, which is the sort you really, really want to eat your way through sequentially, is varied and includes vegetarian options and dishes of the day, and where appropriate you can choose the level of spice/heat you prefer. The meals have been without exception delectable and generously portioned. What's more there's the choice of timely and efficient local delivery with distanced payment. Celebration meals are hard to come by in these times, but The Bell has stepped in to fill the gap brilliantly. Thoroughly recommended for quality and value; believe me, you are not talking about three pieces of meat floating in a sea of sauce here, you are talking cordon bleu, authentic Thai soul food of the highest quality!

Wonderful food
Oct 2020
I have eaten several times in the restaurant and can only say the Thai food is outstanding and made to your preferred level of spice. The current Covid protection measures they have in place make you feel safe without spoiling the lovely atmosphere and all the staff are friendly and helpful. At the weekend we had the opportunity to try the take away service with some friends and was not disappointed to receive the same quality of food and service as you get in the restaurant. I highly recommend the Bell .

Looking forward my next meal there.

Amazing Thai Food
Oct 2020 • Business
Wow....popped in here for dinner and really was very pleasantly surprised with the quality of the food. Only a Thai menu was available but they have a very authentic female Thai chef who prepares all the orders.
The chicken satay starter is a must have...one of the best I have ever tasted and clearly made fresh...no reheats.

I can’t recommend it enough.

Lovely local
Aug 2020
I came here with some work colleagues and we were able to sit in the garden and enjoy the exceptional weather. The food was good - it offers a Thai menu and a good range of items with a spice level to match your taste. I had a Thai Green curry which was very good (although let down a little by the sticky rice which was so sticky, it had to be sliced by a knife). Also, the ordering system is a bit complicated - if they want to go down that road, using an app would be so much easier. The staff are very friendly and accommodating so you're assured of a warm welcome and good experience, even in the Covid-affected times.

After work snack
Sep 2019 • Couples
We popped in for an after work drink having driven past a few times. I had s glass of red and it was very nice. I ordered from the bar snack menu a chilli chicken wrap and sweet potato fries. It was beautifully presented and really delicious. The sweet potato fries were the best I’ve had. We are now looking forward to visiting for s Sunday roast.

Good Pub
Sep 2019 • Friends
I pop in here quite often and the locals and owners all seem like a nice group of people. The pub itself is laid out nicely and the garden and decking area out the back is nicer than other local pubs.

The food is always a good standard and there is a good variety of beers and drinks available.

Worth a visit
Sep 2019 • Friends
It is the first time in ages I have been in this pub. Two reasons. 1) I don't live in Maidstone and 2) the last time I went in there it was rubbish. My brother in law who lives locally suggested we "give it a try" and we were all impressed with the beer, the food and the staff. The waitress we had was also the barmaid on a reasonably busy start of an evening. She was cheerful throughout and catered for all we asked of her, never keeping us waiting but at the same time never forcing herself on us. With such service it made the eating and drinking a pleasure and both of these commodities were of the highest standard.
