Description: This traditional village pub dates back to the 15th century with our snug area dating back to 1107! Legend has it, that the original building was used as accommodation for the monks that built Iden church. We have two delightful letting rooms, separate to the pub. Rooms offer king sized beds and en-suite facilities. Other features include original oak beams within the letting rooms and the main inn. Make yourselves tea and coffee in vintage china in the morning in bed whilst watching television with freeview prior to popping over the the restaurant for a sumptuous hearty breakfast using fresh local produce - continental and full English are offered.We are proud of our home cooked food and offer far more than your usual pub grub. Our food is locally sourced where possible and reflects seasonal changes. We are a perfect dining space for a romantic dinner for two, a family celebration or a private party.

We had lunch here and liked it so much we came back later for dinner.
Scampi and prawns for lunch were superb, then rib eye steak and sausage n mash at dinner were sublime.
We arrived at 8:22 pm not knowing that they closed the kitchen at 8:30. The lovely barman (think his name is Juner) checked the chef and was super smiley and welcoming. Everyone working there seemed so happy and hospitable it made both meals extra special.
The service was quick too. Juner came back to ask if all was okay and if we wanted dessert, this was in a full and busy pub. The lovely barmaid closed the garden doors for us as it was getting chilly and even though we offered she was very happy to do it whilst very busy clearing another table. A really lovely meal at a great pub. We will definitely be back.

We regularly visit The Bell when staying in Iden and have never been disappointed. The menu is a bit limited although there are always specials as well, but the food quality has always been good, the service excellent, and the beer well kept. Good value prices too and a nice ambience including log fire.

Excellent choice of tasty, wholesome, home-cooked bar snacks and an extensive menu of mains. Small, but excellent choice of local draft beers and ciders - more than we could sample, as we still had half a hike to complete! Very friendly, helpful and courteous service. We opted for the bar snacks, which were truly excellent. Two of us had bangers and mash, and two of us had home made hot Scotch Eggs - these were stunning!! I had mine with fries, which were hot, chunky (but not too chunky), dry and crisp. We shall return for a main meal, one day. This pub / restaurant deserves all the praise it receives, and deserves to be very successful!
