HEAD CHEF, HERVÉ STOUVENEL

Hervé advocates using only the finest quality local ingredients and having lived in Norfolk for more than ten years, has formed strong relationships with many local farms. This, along with his wealth of experience, ensures that he produces fresh, seasonal and flavoursome food, which is not just a meal, but an experience!

Michelin trained, Hervé blends modern and classic ideas; tweaking English favourites with French techniques that exude global influences from his experience cooking in Europe and the Caribbean.

His nose-to-tail style means that everything is deliciously utilised with no leftover waste, creating variety in the menu, (something the Head Chef firmly embraces). Herve’s skills, experience and passion for food place The Bell on Norfolk's culinary map!


Garden Room

Perfect for al-fresco dining in the summer, this bright and spacious room opens out on to the patio and is ideal for casual lunches and simple suppers. This is also where you’ll find any of the live events and entertainment.

Snug

With a library of books and an open fire in the winter, the Snug is perfect for relaxing with a beer and a book. Morning coffee and afternoon tea are served here and the sofa, armchairs and low beamed ceiling make the Snug an epitome of cosiness.

Green Room

The perfect setting for a quiet dinner, special occasion or private party. Take in the south facing views of the common and cricket pitch while enjoying the big skies or indulge in the intimate evening atmosphere.
