Ok fellas, i'll teach you guys a lesson about pubs:
- is there any beer?
- is there any crisps and peanuts? (I dont need food, if don't like the food at the place, just dont eat, do like me: JUST DRINK!)
- is there any bird?
- is there a fruit machine?
So, this is a very good pub!
What to say about The Bell?
A great place to be!
I worked for the Ladbrokes nearby, drinking there with my pal Praveen everyday...its a magical place!
I never been abroad, the most far there I went to was to Blackpool, so at The Bell I can learn and get mixed with other cutures and people from Asia, etc.
So open your mind, dont be a muppet!!!
The Bell is a wonderful experience!
Top place, Top girls, top fruit machine, top punters!
Cheers to The Bell - Steve Mansell - ex-manager at Ladbrokes - Hounslow branch.

Utterly shocked to read some of the comments left about this pub. I think a lot of these reviews have been left by people who over the years have been barred and want to get some sort of 'revenge' sad really. I couldn't disagree more. This pub has a terrific team of staff that are bubbly and clearly enjoy what they do. They liven the atmosphere especially over the weekends getting involved with the punters, dancing behind the bar, making real effort for special events and most importantly valuing the trade they make. As for the land lady I have never met anyone nicer! As a passer by wondering Hounslow in an attempt to find a suitable place for myself and a couple of friends to have a drink on a Saturday afternoon she made me feel more than welcome and took an interest in what brought me to the area. Have to say after now living in Hounslow for the past 3 years I would not drink anywhere else! With djs, live music, fancy dress, fund raising events, there is never a dull moment! And I have to say the food is exceptional. I would highly recommend visiting this place and please please do not be put off by the garbage you've seen on the rest of this site! Shocking!

Well how does one normally start a tragedy. We look at the work of Sir William Shakespeare. Pick a play.. go on, you choose. Fine i'll pick for you. Romeo and Juliet. So you know whats going on in a nutshell; 2 motherfuckers can't be together due to family differences till in the end they both die by stupid means and no one lives happily ever after.

Replace the 2 protagonists of romeo and juliet with 'the bell' pub and the concept of 'making money'. Trying to marry those two abstract ideals together is like trying to overcome the density differences between oil and water. Buxton and Extra virgin olive oil arent the best of friends.. and neither are the tills to the customers.

Now we touch upon the true problem with this pub. When running a business, you want to a) acknowledge that you will have a diverse array of customers (especially in a place as culturally diverse as Hounslow) and b) have some basic level of respect for human beings that can see past the crusty exterior of a shambles you call a pub to give you 4 quid to drink a pint there.

The Landlady has neither heard of common sense, nor has she the self respect to befriend her customers that dont show their faces there every waking moment. An alcoholic nymphomatic with a libido of an 18 year old virgin in a prom party, the lady, (I assume her name is Candy) can not run her lipstick straight from one side of her face to the other due to her parkinsons, let alone run a fucking pub.

I have read some of the previous comments and I have been to the Bell to investigate... only to discover the words people have spoken of this place are more than myth... they are reality! The smell of stale salt n vinegar crisps haunts the senses and the smell of low- IQ British males rots the nasal cavity like fish in a barrel. Commonly overcharging customers for a Fosters that is 90% soapy water and 10% lady juice, I can safely say the worst pint I have ever had was in The Bell.

For the safety of you, your family, your unborn grandchildren, your dog and your dog's bitches, stay away from The Bell, for when you leave the post-traumatic stress disorder will make you shed your wallets for HOURS of therapy.

Dont make the same mistake I did.

Be wise, drink nice.

I went to hounslow a few weeks back as I was working at airport my job involves me training the UK. . So I went into weather spoons and all the staff was friendly .. I had some chips and they was perfect. . I had a few there then thought I would explore hounslow I then went to a pub called tommy flinns. It was ok in there buy just wasn't sure of the people there. So I left and looked for another pub. I saw a pub called the bell as I walked past I could see two Indian men holding two young boys to the floor while about another 10 people kicked them in the head.. Including the managers . I assume they was the managers as the next day the woman was behind the bar. I was again in Hounslow last night and was shocked to see these people still working there. After such a horror attack on two young lads. With I managed to film some of..but I guess as it's a drug pub police can't afford to close it.

Went in this pub recently and saw the same landlady (and her boyfriend) who was sacked last year... She still won't move. Come on love, don't you think you should start looking for another job if the brewery sacked you?

Seeing her put me off, so I finished my pint and left. She still calls herself the "Queen of The Bell", oh my God...This pub is full of odd looking characters and it stunk of weed. Anyone with any savvy wouldn't touch the place with a barge pole.

Save your money and drink in a civilised pub.
