A very warm welcome awaits you from the landlord Graham Bedford and all the staff at The Bell Inn, Panfield. 

The pub is full of real traditional beams as the building dates from about the 15th century and during the winter months we burn a real log fire to keep you nice and warm.

Traditional home cooked food is offered with a bookable dining area.  Please be aware that it is important to phone for Saturday evening and Sunday lunch time, to avoid disappointment.

We can also cater for all events on site or at an outside venue.

Darts, football, pool and rounders teams form a lively part of our environment, together with special events.
