A warm welcome from the log fire, the landlady and the customers. The Six Nations on, which generated much banter. The usual ales (Wherry, JHB, and a 3rd I've forgotten!), very well kept. Loos clean and well stocked, garden tempting but too cold today, but we'll be back later in the year when it's warmer.

How a village pub should be! Relaxed, unspoiled and friendly. A one bar pub dating from the 16th century, the beamy bar is dominated by a large inglenook fire that Im told burns throughout the winter.There were 4 ales on draught, Wherry, Adnams, JHB, I sampled a pint of Crouch Vale Black Water Mild which was very acceptable.
A black board advertised a selection of 8 scrumpy ciders from Westons, Thatchers and Gwynt y Ddraig served from the cellar. The menu looked homemade and hearty, offering home made scotch eggs, Lancashire hot pot and such like. I enjoyed their Welsh Rarebit made with wherry. I traveled to the pub by train as the station is only a short walk away, nice not have to think about driving!

The Bell was my favourite pub of the day on my Essex trip last weekend. On a sunny Sunday lunchtime is was busy both inside and out. The single bar interior is small and cosy and there's a warm welcome from the staff. Other customers seemed friendly too. 4 real ales were available - Woodfordes Wherry, Adnams Bitter, Oakham JHB & Bishop Nick Heresy. 4 rWestons real ciders or perries were also on offer - Old Rosie, Tradtional Scrumpy, Country Perry & Cider Twist Ginger. Sadly I missed the list of these behind the bar and ordered a Stowford Press instead. This is a great traditional country pub and the garden looked as if it could be very tempting on a warm sunny day.

Very good country pub with an exceptional range of crisps and other bar snacks.

Visited this pub and sat in the garden. The chairs were filthy and the pubs bulldog I presume just sat there barking at me the entire time. Disgusted to see half a dead rabbit or squirrel in the garden that hadn't been removed. Crawling with flies! Whoever gave this pub a (9 obviously worked there
