Clive Thompson left this review about The Old Bell

Well deserving of the 'old' in the pub title as the building dates back to 1615 and it's an interesting place to have a look around. There are multiple rooms including the Churchill Lounge, the Henry VIII Room (there are allegedly secret tunnels leading to the church opposite), and a room lined with old hunting murals. Cask Marque approved and the Adnams was good. In a sort of old/young juxtaposition there is Sky TV, dartboard, golf and gaming machines plus a free bus to the local nightclub at the weekend. But the old and the new sit fairly well together.
