Doesn’t look much from the outside but the inside has been given a relatively modern make-over at some point recently. An L-shaped interior with a knocked-through rear room. Herringbone flooring, powder blue walls and wallpaper. A set of booths off to the left though the glass has seemingly been removed from the dividers. Noted a nice dark wood bar back with large glass mirror. Clean and tidy inside. Rear garden overlooking the railway, nice. Four ales on; Pride (poor shape), Hobgoblin, Adnams Ghost Ship (pretty good) and Doom Bar at very reasonable prices for London, just over £3pp. Plenty busy before midday on a Friday, with these prices I can see why. Ate breakfast here and wouldn’t be inclined to do so again, it made JDW’s efforts look like 5 star gourmet. Still, it’s fair enough as a cheap and cheerful boozer, it could be much worse.

The Old Bell is a large pub that faces a very busy road junction.
Once inside there is a very large single L shaped room,the bar faces,the seating was american diner type to the front,the rear had normal tables and chairs,there was a raised area to the left which also had normal tables and chairs.
There were two real ales on the bar,i had a drink of Courage Best which was £1.05 a half,this was a decent enough drink,the other beer was GK IPA.
The pub was packed which was no surprise because of the cheap beer,there was a mixed bunch in of all ages,there was some decent background music playing.
I quite liked this pub due to its lively atmosphere.
