The Bell, Bath

I was told the long term landlord has sold up, but it's been 'saved' by hundreds of customers who bought the freehold. A figure of nearly £1m was mentioned, that's Bath for you. There is scaffolding up so looks like it's getting a spruce up, probably not before time! Good choice of ales, some laid back drinkers and lots of music on offer but I still prefer some of the city's smaller venues.

Dropped in again after seeing the pub on Tony Robinson's "Walking through History" program on Channel4. All I can say is 'Wiltsmans' report below is way off the mark. Either that or 'Spoons is more to his taste.The refit looks great and their own Croppie ale was well kept. The location right next to the canal is fantastic and probably gets very busy in summer with crop circle hunters, so good to visit this time of year to appreciate the decor.

I'm told it had just re-opened prior to my visit after a new refit. Done a great job, just what a 'real' pub should look like. Noticed it's the local CAMRA "Pub of the year" and I would certainly concur with that, just wished it was close enough to be my local. Had a couple of pints of 1810 their own locally brewed ale, well kept and went down a treat.
