A busy GK pub hidden in the shadow of Bluebell Hill and the A229. The name is historic and probably pre-dates the current pub building which is Victorian; there used to be a single narrow track up Bluebell Hill with a bell at each end to control traffic and prevent impasse. Its sister pub, the Upper Bell, was demolished earlier this year. A large bar is entered from the car park via a large outside terrace, and there is a separate restaurant area. The pub also does B&B at a reasonable price. A pleasant garden adjoins the car park. The décor is basic and dated, and the only ale on was Abbott which was in very good condition. There is a large TV and a gaming machine. The food is a bit too basic to justify the price. Live music is a regular feature. Fine if you're in the area, and it's in a convenient location between Maidstone and the Medway Towns, but I'm not sure I'd go out of my way to come here.

Basic, very noisy 'music' festival on when I went. Charmless place.
