Always loved The Bell, but first time for a sit down meal. Really enjoy it. We were booked in for 8, but the guys were happy for us to stay at the bar for a couple of drinks before hand, so we felt very looked after by everyone

We waited a long time for our meals to be delivered. I and one of my friends had s meal with gravy which was very salty. After the main course we waited an age for our dessert orders to be taken. Puddings were very good.

Bearsted is the hub of excellent pub grub and The Bell Inn is a welcome inclusion in that clutch. It’s an old fashioned locals village pub at its heart. Care has been put into bringing its decor into the swank of the 21st century with glittery bulbs and modern art works.
Seating is comfy in the restaurant area. The Specials menu has few but excellent selections of British dishes. There is also a specials menu for the day of the week. The Bell Inn highlights their use of locally sourced beef, lamb and ham. The freshness of the ham hock and the beef stew were testament to that. The presentation of the food showed the chef cared about the dishes preparation.
Service was caring too, and humble.
The best part of the whole experience, value. This sets The Bell Inn apart from its Bearsted siblings. I will stick my neck out and say that The Bell Inn is the best value for money pub grub in Kent.

Lovely roast dinner on Sunday. Plenty of everything and very enjoyable. Strange taste to the carrots which I believe are cooked in star anise? My husband liked them, I did not. My husband order a spotted dick for desert. It wasn't until we got home we realised it had been a treacle sponge! Eaten and enjoyed (I had a taste, very light and lovely custard) so not a problem. Busy and noisy due to rugby on the tv and then some live music. The music was part of the reason we went and very pleasant. Would recommend the Bell for Sunday lunch but maybe not a quiet one1

Thank you for your lovely review, yep you guests it the star anise is the culprit. It is a love or hate taste and I totally get it, more ladies don't like rather than Guys. Next time you come in ask for an alternative and they will always accommodate. Will ask about the dessert as looks like a human error but so glad you liked it all the same. Due to England playing the 6 Nations was always going to be a little noisy.

Thoroughly enjoyed our Sunday roast at the Bell Inn. The meat was tender, the gravy was thick and plentiful, the roast potatoes were crispy on the outside and soft in the middle, and the Yorkshire was huge. The atmosphere was welcoming and the staff were helpful and attentive. We all enjoyed the meals and will definitely be returning for another roast dinner soon!

The food was well presented and very tasty. There were four of us all choosing something different. It was well cooked and the service was friendly. I imagine this is a place that excels in the summer as they have an outdoor (partially covered) where they apparently serve pizzas direct from the oven. Will have to return and give it a try.

This is the second year running my friend and i have met here just prior to Christmas as The Bell is halfway between where we both live and has a large car park. Both times we booked but didn't choose the Christmas menu. Last year I was able to select a turkey dinner but this year it wasn't a choice. Not to worry, there were lots of choices on the very reasonably priced menu (2 courses for £9.50). The garlic mushroom starter was excellent, very tasty. The liver and bacon main also very good.

Service was friendly and attentive but weren't in a hurry and never felt rushed.

Overall a great lunch; I've no hesitation in booking again for next year and maybe before if passing.

We had an enjoyable evening, unfortunately the soup starter arrived stone cold, but it was replaced quickly, no reduction on the bill tho.

Our table for six was by the back door where smokers frequently went in and out so it got a bit draughty, fortunately it wasn't a cold evening.
Overall we had a good evening, we will return.

Was disappointed with seating. We were placed right in front of the door to the garden. To compensate the waitress switched on a heater which was so hot we had to ask for it to be switched off. People were constantly using the door so we asked to be moved..... and was moved to the right and left in front of the door to the ladies toilet. Since this was meant to be a Christmas treat, we were sadly disappointed. Probably won't go there again.

Sadly our pub is too small for the popularity that we have, its a 16th century building and very limited as to where facilities are in the building. We are planning a separate outside smoking area to the front of the building that will eliminate this problem going forward. We have had a lot of parties so far this year on that table and your the first to bring it to our attention, we normally check through out the meal if warm enough etc.... Same that this might put you off in the future....

The waiting service was excellent, very professional and friendly staff. The food quality was very poor, the soup order was mixed up and tasted like it was out of a can. The vegetables on the roast had a strange taste and the potatoes were not properly roasted. Gravy was average, meat was ok. Overall very disappointing.

Hi Daniel, very disappointed to here of your experience, as you can see from the other reviews we receive on a regular basis this is not the standard we normally provide. I have asked the team to get back to me with a possible reason this might have happened. I can assure you that we do not use canned products as you have mentioned, our soups are all made here in our kitchen, the taste on the carrots will be the star Anais that they cook them in, sometimes a love or hate thing tbh…. Kind Regards

Food was amazing, especially garlic mushrooms starter. The thing that let it down was trying to get the attention of waiting staff, had to shout to them, and considering that wanted our table as they had another booked.
