Very good food, with good sized portions and consistently good quality ale and good service. The prices may be a bit high but could be argued as good value for such a high quality establishment.

My wife and I had a light lunch there recently - our first re-visit since it opened again. Not a lot changed inside. Everything is clean and full of character and service was good. The old delicatessen area is now a general eating area, and the same food menu is now served everywhere. Standard range of beers at the bar, including good Adnams Broadside and a draught cider, plus usual lagers. We had a good light lunch (1 fish & chips, 1 caesar salad), but the prices seemed unreasonable. Is this place hoping to go up-market? Our snacks, and a beer each, cost nearly 30! Not surprising that the place was rather empty even though it was market day in Walden.

Nice Interior but the food was extremely disappointing for what you would have thought should be a high class menu. The food was like something on wetherspoons standard. I had pork belly which was about a 3 inch square and 1 cm thick, around a third of it was fat and to top it off it was burnt black on the outside and cost 16!!! How could a place that appears to be such a good venue send a meal out like that! I didnt like to cause a fuss as I was with a group but shall certainley not be suggesting this to my friends/clients in Walden nor will I willingly be visiting again. One to avoid!

I have not visited since this establishment has obtained new management staff. Nor have I had a meal here before. But when visiting for a drink, I found the interior to be very tasteful and the bar service was friendly and fast.

Would recomend visiting, and I will go back there again very soon.

The Eight Bells has gone under new ownership/management, and will be re-opened on Monday 6th December I believe.
