The Bell, Aldgate

To the previous reviewer - either strap on a pair or go to an all bar one. It's a proper, independently-owned pub on the edge of the financial district, so has a good mix of suits/locals and the odd student group. One of the least scary pubs I've ever been in.

It does look a bit ropey from the outside but if that bothers you, go inside.

Good atmosphere, friendly bar staff/landlord and a pool table/dartboard area downstairs which can be hired out for private parties. Good, if occasionally weird music too (heard "Informer" by Snow from circa 1992 playing there the other day). If the landlord's dishing out shots of home-made chilli vodka then avoid. Unless you particularly want to wake up with stomach cramps at 3am the next morning.

Decent food too (if a touch on the pricey side).

Best pub in the area. Only downside, started to grow in popularity so more difficult to get a seat at peak times.

Currently closed and covered in police tape due to the machete attack a couple of nights ago.

Unfortunately, it appears to be just a temporary closure for refurbishment. It would be better and cheaper to just burn the place down.
