Our Story so far…
Having both grown up in Norfolk and drunk at The Brisley Bell years ago, we were exceptionally sad to see it decline and finally close in 2013. So when the opportunity arose to buy the pub in September 2015, we took a giant leap of faith changing our careers and set about planning its reincarnation.
We built and renovated The Brisley Bell to be the kind of pub in which we would enjoy hanging out. That to us meant a proper large drinking bar, a relaxed atmosphere, beautiful surroundings and delicious food; a pub where anyone and everyone is welcome whether they are eating, staying, or simply popping in for a drink; a pub with its community at its heart.
Since opening, our approach has won us many loyal friends. We’re proud to have been awarded ‘Best Pub’ in Norfolk within 7 months of opening our doors – and many awards since. Recognition for this should also be given to our fantastic team of staff and Head Chef, Herve Stouvenel.
We are delighted we’ve managed to retain the hallmarks of a traditional country inn, in this celebrated pub from a bygone age and that its name is still well cherished for miles around. As our reputation grows and the pub evolves, we hope to ensure we maintain the character of The Brisley Bell for years to come.
