Michael Wright left this review about Ship & Bell Hotel

Update April 2010 Thought due for a revisit and a fuller [no pun intended] picture, has two bars, and a dining area. One bar is the standard Public, other is Saloon, comfy chairs etc

Due to age of building may not be wheelchair friendly, loo is up steps for instance, but as it is also a hotel no doubt arrangements could be made

Seems to have had a mini makeover since my last visit, cleaner, brighter and less creaky now

Usual Fullers range, London Pride, HSB, ESB etc, but all well kept [casque marked pub]I stuck to HSB, and it was as good as last time

Food still available, a few regulars came in & ordered, so seems to be popular choice

May 2008 After my Red Lion experience I fancied a decent pint in a real pub

As this pub is the heart of ex Gales brewery, next door in fact, the beers were of course all Fullers / Gales

I had HSB, and very nice it was, relaxed sort of place at lunchtime, they do food but I never tried it

May not suit all, as the pub shows it's age of 400 years, creaky floors etc, but it is part of our heritage

Result, if in Horndean, ignore the Red Lion, use this one or Colonial Bar if you want real beer & people
