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

Traditional-looking Marston's local that is a bit of a surprise inside since it has been thoroughly refurbished in a bright modern style and is quite food orientated. Several seating areas within the partly opened-out interior. B&B accommodation also offered. Three of four handpumps in operation on this visit, offering Sweet Chariot, Banks's Sunbeam and Jennings Night Vision.

Very bright pub that obviously majors on food. There are bench seats in the window that are so high off the floor that my feet didn't touch the ground when I sat there and I'm 6 foot tall. If I had been with the other half I would have had to lift her on and off. What a strange idea. 4 handpumps on the bar Bank's Bitter and Original, Jennings Cumberland (all a bit bland for me) and the superb Ringwood XXXX Porter. Guess which I had! A very good pint it was too. Not really my type of pub put pleasent nontheless.
