The Bell well Know for its mixed crowd of Local Residents and Office Workers, but don’t mistake this for “just another city pub” because it’s far from it. Eclectically decorated and boasting 2 function rooms including a games room with pool and darts.
Serving well kept Cask Beers and a diverse selection of Lagers it also supports a decent Wine selection, offering the full list by the glass or half bottle, making it a great place to meet work colleagues and friends for a drink. Lunches are dealt with a non-fussy pub menu full of old favourites.
Open Mon-Wed 11 till 11, Thur-Fri open till 12, Saturdays are for special events like our monthly Northern Soul night and Brit-Pop Band evenings, or if you’re planning a party it’s available for private hire. Through the summer months we’re closed on Sundays but will open up for large bookings. We’ll be opening up again on Sundays when the wintery months roll in.
The Bell Reviews
I love this pub for being what it is. Refreshingly unpretentious. No ‘theme’, no ‘atmosphere’ music, just a much loved good honest hostelry. There are far too few of these gems left these days that the corporates haven’t pasted their formula over. The pub itself is popular and can get busy. Not a problem as it is run by the finest landlady in this fair city. Linda and her team will have a bar full of people served and happy in a few minutes. That’s why we keep coming back year after year.
Best pub in the city - the beer is always fresh, the staff are a delight and service is very fast. They know their customers and serve excellent ales and lagers at reasonable prices. I would happily pay 20% more than current prices to keep it as it is.
