My son is 3 and was given colouring books and toys which was very kind of the waitress hence leaving a generous tip,
Food nice but portion size small, but will be back to try other dishes
Nice to still have a local pub with a local feel

The positives are the friendly staff as and the quality of the food which was hot and tasty.
The negatives were a family nearby who had a somwhat hyper child who was extremely noisy and was running around a lot which spoilt our enjoyment of the meal. Also there was no Harvey's beer on tap even though it was displayed as a guest beer.
I know the staff had no control of this child (neither did the adults) so I cannot put any blame on them. I would definitely eat there again and hope it will be a little quieter next time!

Waited an hour for a sandwich and a jacket potato during a very quiet lunch, gave up and cancelled it in the end. Barmaid gave us a refund but we didn’t even get an apology.

Firstly, may I apologise on behalf of the team that we fell short of our normal standards of service. We have experienced some behind the scenes issues that should never affect the front of house. Be reassured that these issues have been dealt with and wont happen again. You can see from other reviews it's not the norm.

Hi, Totally agree on this HeatherC, sadly we were understaffed and then had 2 very large groups of drinkers in the bar that distracted the restaurant team. Sadly the sauvignon you ordered sold out and then through inexperience that waitress gave you a bottle from the case. I hope this will not detract from you coming back, it was one of those days, training has been given and it should not happen again. Kindest Regards

The service was slow, my friend asked how long until we got our food as we had waited 45 mins already, waitress told us too many people had ordered the same main so we had to wait. They didn't have any rose wine and at 9 (our table was booked for 8) they had a live band so we could not hear each other talk.

DebL, so sorry that you were unaware that we provide live music every Friday @ 9pm, normally customers are advised on booking unless you booked online. Due to everything cooked fresh here and the popularity of our restaurant, at times we do get a bit of a wait. i'm sorry that this did not suit your dining experience and we have asked the team to ensure they check bookings are not all at the same time. The rose wine that we normally stock is out of supply @ Greeneking sadly.

Very pleasant staff and atmosphere. Food was good and service quick. Little surprised that 3 mains were off, ham, egg and chips, liver and steak and kidney pudding, from the lunchtime menu. We were dining at 1330.

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.
