Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Bell & Crown Inn

Former Truman corner pub, with some interesting historic features retained on both facades. However, the 'L'-shaped interior has been redone in a rustic light-wood alehouse style (which is OK in its own right, but any original character has been lost). Four Kentish real ales on handpump: Wife of Bath from Canterbury Ales, Fife & Drum and from Musket, a tasty Gadds No 5 and Hopdaemon Incubus.

We caught this on a bad day as the Old Dairy Red Top was badly on the turn. I took it back and the young barmaid agreed, she told the young man behind the bar, who I assumed to be the cellarman, who replied i'll put another one on. So the barmaid turned the pumpclip back and we did not see any sign of the line being cleaned through. I also tried the Whitsable East India Pale Ale, which was not up to much. We saw a few tourists trying to find some traditional English ales on our visit, a disappointing selection on our visit.

Traditional tile hung street corner pub on the pedestrianised Palace Street,outside the walls of the Cathedral Precints. A few tables and chairs outside for that continental vibe:inside, an L-shaped room,uncluttered. A celebrated "Fremlin's" window commemorates a much loved former brewery, and affords a fine view of the western towers of the Cathedral.
The Bell and Crown is noted for its support of Kent microbreweries:on my brief visit on a Saturday lunchtime in June I tried a Montgomery IPA from Wantsum of Hersden.Not really to my taste,unfortunately, although I understand that generally the beer here is consistently good.
A lively pub,popular with drinkers and tourists.
