The Bell Inn is a decent looking back street corner pub that is just up from the Carpenters Arms.
Once inside there is a L shaped room with the bar facing,the room is bare boarded,the seating is a long pew seat to the front left,plus smaller pew seats and a few small tables and chairs,there is a smaller bar room to the rear right which has a pool table and darts board in it.
There were no real ales on the bar,the keg bitter was John Smiths smooth crap,but there was keg Guinness Dublin Porter on which i tried,this was a decent drink.
The pub was fairly busy and there was some decent background music playing.
This is a pleasant enough pub,just a shame there are no real ales on the bar.

A Victorian backstreet locals' pub dating from the 1880s, with a single J-shaped bar, wooden floors, fairly new furniture and stained glass windows. It sits on the corner of a terrace and is very much part of local life. It has a decent sized garden though this is quite unkempt. There is a smell of stale smoke drifting in, but this isn't the pub's fault. It's friendly and is an important part of the local community but it has no real ale so I think I will leave it to the regulars.

I made an evening visit to the Bell Inn a couple of weeks ago and found a lively pub populated by locals who were avidly watching Monday night football via Sky Sports. The interior is made up by a central bar that serves two separate sides of the pub which still retain an open plan feel. There is a plasma screen in each bar and at the rear is a pool table. There is a jukebox on the wall that was switched off for the footie.
There is no real ale here, only standard draught products.

I wouldn’t go out of my way to drink here again, but I would certainly use this pub if I lived locally because the service was friendly and the regulars seemed harmless enough.
