Went to the Smarden Bell on a Groupon deal, when we got there it turns out that our visit hadn't been registered. However the staff went out of their way to get the problem sorted, even though they had a large private function on at the same time. The staff were polite and extremely efficient and a table was made ready within 10 minutes. The fishpie that we had for our main course was delicious, I've had this dish in other establishments where the contents are the same temperature as the inside of Mt Vesuvius and you have to wait an hour for it to cool, not so in this case, it was just right! The staff continued to check that everything was as it should be and that we were happy. All in all it was a very enjoyable experience in a very old and charming pub. I will definitely be making a return trip in the future.
