Just had to post after seeing whoopydingdongs last post.
I visited the Bell on friday evening and sunday afternoon, the place was packed all sunday afternoon with families having dinners etc, you could not get a table for love nor money.
The fire was roaring away in the hearth and people i saw where all talking about how nice and clean the pub was with it's new decor and furniture.
The barstaff i had dealings with where polite and smartly dressed.
I too remember the old dark atmosphere and must say i prefer the new look at least you can now see the interior of the pub rather than the old dark stained walls.
Maybe whoopydingdong has a different idea of what a pub should look like but i for one will be visiting again.

This poor little 15th century pub has been RUINED.
I used to drink there regularly and loved it, I popped in there last night, the first time in about two years:
Where there was once NO piped music (except in the games room) there is now Kiss FM style processed autotuned trash coming from every corner, all the knick knacks have gone from the walls, there is grey sludgy paintwork coating many of the once rustic woody surfaces, the open fire is no longer crackling away in the corner and as if all that wasn't band enough - there is now a bloody great big screen with football permanently showing. Saturday night 10pm and the place was virtually deserted ...says it all really.

A pleasant and unpretentious local, serving Black Sheep and Courage bitters and standard pub grub. TV screens but no canned music when I was there. The large garden includes 2 play areas for the kids.

A good place to set out from to walk along the Mole.

Just moved to the area and this is the nearest pub so been there a few times. Lovely setting with obvious nostalgic charm, a nice dark ambience which I like, and a huge garden. The bar is quite small which can be a tad annoying if its busy. You do get a lot of large groups in here including kids, and thats mainly because the garden looks great for little uns. The food menu looks extensive and some good deals on, although Ive not tried anything yet. The beer appears good, a low priced carlsberg, a very attractively priced Becks and a standard priced San Miguel covers the lagers. All 3 Ive tried and all 3 taste very good. Not really an ale drinker but the usual ones seem to be there. Im happy with this place, especially as I havent yet seen any of the horrible bunch that Ive seen in the high street, the kind you'd gladly stamp on their heads, so long may that continue.

Good points: Great location, dark like pubs used to be, spacious, no piped music, acceptable if unexciting beer (limited choice, Directors, Courage Best, Blacksheep) large decent garden with some slides for kids, small car park, newspaper, a landlord and bar staff who are trying hard.

Bad points: The outside is no guide to the inside. This pub could be a jewel but it is shabby, needs a good clean and a lick of paint. Visited at weekend, daytime, late April 2012 and the heating was set uncomfortably high. Door onto garden banged shut loud and endlessly by returning smokers - please Mr Landlord attach a device to make it close quietly.

Neutral points: Middle-aged local men hogged the bar (as is their right) but this forced everyone else to squeeze through an extremely narrow passage to get to the main room.

There is a new generic menu (laminated easywipe plastic) which offers a wide rage of cheap meals as determined by the brewery rather than the pub cook. Nothing fancy but acceptable grub at fair prices which is sometimes exactly what you want.
