Description: The Bell Inn at Kennett is a Family run, Early 16th Century Haunted Coaching Inn Offering Fresh Home cooked English Food. Situated Just 4 Miles from The World Famous Horse Racing Town of Newmarket, it is an excellent place to visit before or after a Days Racing, or for people visiting The Sales at Tattersalls. In July 2016 a major refurbishment and the addition of 10 guest rooms all with en-suites was completed. For many years The Bell has been regarded as a Pub & Restaurant which has the best location in East Anglia, being a perfect meeting place because of its prominent position on the B1506 Between Bury St Edmunds & Newmarket. Cambridge, Ely, Ipswich, Norwich, & Bury St Edmunds are all easily accessible From here.

Great food, reasonable prices and I adore the horse theme throughout the place. The paintings on the tables are stunning. Lovely staff, but remember to book as it does get busy.

“Elton John tribute all inclusive night”
Reviewed December 26, 2013

all inclusive was £45 for 3 course meal, entertainment and all drinks! I had the pate for starter which was obviously homemade and was delicious served with plenty of toast unlike some i've had recently. Turkey dinner with plenty of veg all cooked perfectly. Followed by Christmas pudding. was so completly stuffed! Best meal in a long time. The whole evening was fantastic it was a 50th birthday suprise for hubby and we had guests from Cornwall and Kent who all agreed it was fantastic. Sheena and team are brilliant and will def be doing an all inclusive deal again.

“Buzzy pub”

We visited on a busy lunchtime. The burger was ok however my stroganoff was very basic and bland. Hopefully we caught them on an off day,
