A ‘proper’ PUB, with good food IN THE HEART OF NORFOLK
YOU’RE ONE STEP AWAY FROM DISCOVERING A PICTURESQUE NORFOLK HIDEAWAY
Set in the village of Brisley on a beautiful common, The (multi award-winning) Bell has exceptional views of unadulterated Norfolk countryside and big skies. Ideally situated between coast and city, it is the perfect base from which you can enjoy all that Norfolk has to offer.
This 17th century village inn, renovated from derelict by owners Marcus & Amelia, retains many of its old charms including its characteristic community spirit.
The large beer garden and croquet lawn are the perfect tonic to a busy week and watching cricket on the common, pint in hand as the sun goes down, is an ideal way to spend a lazy summer’s evening.
In colder months, you can relax by roaring fires after a hearty walk or a long lingering lunch; play games, read a book or settle down with a bottle of wine. And there’s pub quiz (first Sunday of every month, October to June).
The Bell is a meat led pub. Working with local suppliers, Michelin trained Head Chef Hervé Stouvenel creates fresh and seasonal dishes, full of fantastic flavours, combining classic English cuisine with global influences. As a freehouse, the broad selection of ales, beers, wines and spirits means you’re certain to find old favourites or discover new delights.
If you’re looking for a longer visit, stay overnight. Set in almost two acres of grounds, there’s a choice of six en-suite bedrooms individually designed with a focus on quality, comfort and relaxation; one room with full disabled access and two rooms that are dog friendly.
Check out the ‘Things To Do’ page for a variety of local attractions and places to visit. There are an abundance of great local golf courses to suit all handicaps, some lovely circular walks, a national cycle route (N13) that passes the pub and Fakenham racecourse – just 6 miles away.
