As with other Market Town Taverns a well kept selection of real ales. However, I am surprised Oakells have not revamped the food menu. The lunchtime food we had was reheated, dry and not inspiring. Generally the atmosphere was unwelcoming and temperature chilly. The manager was more concerned about being rude about customers than being welcoming. So different to the bar staff in the station tap.

Market Town Taverns pub the Old Bell has a changing range of eight guest beers including from owners Okells of the Isle of Man, plus a dark beer. A real cider and a range of UK and foreign bottled and keg beers available. Upstairs restaurant open in the evenings. Nice pub.

A stones throw from Hales Bar and I'm at pub number 2 and this is one owned by the Isle of Man brewery Okells. The choice of ales on the taps is excellent, 9 offerings with all breweries on offer being Northern. In addition there are 21 Oktoberfest beers on offer which are all priced at £4.00.

We ordered food as the wife was hungry and I had a pint of Okells Autumn Dawn @ 4.2% to wash down my ham, egg and chips.

Large double fronted pub overlooking the old pump house and the Crown hotel, was converted from the old toffee shop in 1999 on the site of the previous Bell pub.

The Farrah room to the right is more open plan than the front bar, plenty of places to sit and eat.

Interesting wooden bar area , plenty of pictures and beer advertising hanging on the walls.

Above the bar area on the ceiling is a huge quantity of beer pump clips.

Cracking pub, great choice of ales, decent food, steady stream of punters.

2 down 4 to do!

Visited again, this time on a quiet midweek afternoon, which gave a different perspective, and one which the pub passed with flying colours.
Friendly bar staff offered a range of ales, whilst the one tried was a superb pint of Wensleydale Black Dub Stout.
The pub has a great atmosphere, whether empty or full,with perhaps the only negative being the price, all the beers being a little on the high side, all well above £3 a pint.
If you don't mind the prices however, this pub, just off the main street, is certainly still worth a visit if you find yourself in Harrogate.

Pleased to read it seems much the same as when I last visited.
