“Ring this Bell”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2013 via mobile

"Best cod and chips for years",reports spouse when friends treat us at The Bell.

Sea bream with langoustine was my choice to follow a king prawns in a light tempura batter for starter.

The whole experience was just sublime and I wholeheartedly recommend a visit.

But you must reserve as other people seem to like The Bell as well.

“Cracking country pub”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2013

lovely food and atmosphere in a traditional Kent pub, with hops hanging from the ceiling and two bars to choose from.

Sunday roast is very good value as well
On a Sunday they also put out traditional snacks to enjoy which are always well received
