In the GBG but shouldn't be really. Looks good from the outside but faux interior and second rate beer served by staff who couldn't give a flying shite Not quite nil points but pretty close to it

The Bell Inn is on the opposite side of the river from most pubs and the main Roman sites in Caerleon. It's tucked away up a quaint backstreet. It's probably the best pub Caerleon has to offer. But there's significant scope for improvement. Before we'd even managed to get to the bar, we were jumped upon by a lady who asked if she could help us. I replied that I'd like to purchase a drink. But she quickly decided to tell us that all of the lagers were off! I was more focused on the list of ciders on a blackboard though. I was trying to work out whether they were all draught or whether they were bottles when the barmaid decided to ignore me in favour of somebody about to place a huge food and drinks order. When the barmaid got this wrong, it took an eternity to rectify and only 5 minutes later did one of the other staff members, who were sat talking the wrong side of the bar, decide to help out. So much for being jumped upon on arrival! It soon transpired that they didn't have all of the ciders/perries on the board as our first request was off. Assuming the rest were available, the selection was Weston's Rosie's Pig, Old Rosie & Flat Tyre, Aspall's Temple Moon, Cyderkyn & Raspberry & Ginger, Abrahalls Lily The Pink, Thatcher's Stan's Big Apple, Traditional & Cheddar Valley & Garden Cider Company Vintage. The two ales were Wainwright & Boltmaker. The pub was very quiet inside. This may have had something to do with the lack of lager. But there were a few in the suntrap terrace garden at the rear. Good pub, but with service issues.

Impressive cider and perry menu, lovely interior, Benny Hill jokes in the toilet to keep you occupied.
Friendly staff, always willing to give extra information about the ciders, and very ready to help out with any questions.
Food was well priced, some original dishes, very large portions and very well cooked. High standards all round, huge cheeseboard (the landlord said he had put on some extra, seeing that we were two).
Pretty damn good place!

Visited on BH Monday. Not much has changed since last visited in 2008!Very nice welcoming pub. Beer choice OK with Vale of Glamorgan and Wickwar available alongside Wells Bombardier. Excellent range of ciders of perry's (around 20 in total). Didn't try food but others said it was good, if a bit pricey, but then it is a gastropub so not surprising. Would visit again if in area.
