The last review of this pub was in 2014. We went there with friends last Friday - what a revelation! Pub was crowded with diners and drinkers - Butty Bach and HPA on the pumps for starters. Great food, good price and very pleasant staff. Looked like the place is really thriving - great! Will definitely revisit!

How long has the B&B been closed? I drove past, this morning, and it was boarded up. I used to drink here, regularly, 20 years ago, but a visit a few years ago was disappointing and we didn't go back.

The Bell & Bear was better than the Lighthouse down the hill. Like the Lighthouse, there was only one other customer, other than the bar staff. The pub is set below the road and you feel like you're in a village pub in a quiet village, until you take in the urban/industrial landscape from the window at the rear. The pub is quaint inside and out and was serving 3 ales - Timothy Taylor Landlord, Enville Ale & Adnams Broadside. More importantly for me, they also had Thatchers Heritage cider. We didn't try the food, apart from a bag of Pork Crunch and some spicy pretzels. Worth a visit.

I'd go here often to have a pint but recognising that its not all about the beer it is worth mentioning that the place has problems. This used to be a great pub but it's going down hill, becoming dingy and in need of a good clean up.
The place had a good reputation for food and unfortunately a lot of infrequent visitors are in for a shock. The food is terrible - possibly the worst pub food I've ever had. The menu choice is good and the pricing is ok to high but the food quality is very very poor and often badly cooked. Frankly my advice is to avoid the food here and get some chips either the olympia or the our plaice. The chinese takeaway down the hill is also ok.
The beer selection remains very good and there's a good crowd of drinkers with a safe and friendly atmosphere. Still the best pub in the area for a pint of ale.
The Thursday night quiz gets a good attendance (starts about 8pm) which is good if you like quizzes and terrible if you like to chat over a pint.
